IoT for operations
We design, select and implement IoT solutions, and leverage IoT data to improve operational performance
Mobile assets are often under-utilized. Using connected devices to monitor a fleet is a strong lever of performance.
New types of devices, especially devices running on 0G / low-power networks are very efficient for this usage.
We help our clients understand and quantify the real benefits, we run business cases and pilots to identify where these use cases are most relevant and identify the best available solutions to scale-up.
Typical business cases we have worked on are :
- Fleet utilization monitoring and optimization
- Service level improvement
- Predictive maintenance
Logistics, especially international logistics, has been a long-lasting area of low transparency and visibility. However, bringing more data about logistics execution helps to accelerate flows and brings more confidence in supply chains.
We have developed expertise in track and trace ecosystem and solutions. We also provide plug and play IoT solutions to run prototype and demonstrate the use-case value.
We help clients on the following phases:
- Identify use-cases of IoT
- Build the business case, assessing the expected benefits and costs
- Deploy IoT solutions and data related models
We have typically helped clients on these topics:
- Track and trace
- Real-time alerting
- Temperature monitoring
The management of your logistics flows has a significant impact on operational performance – be it service, cost, stock, but also environmental impact – as well as customer loyalty, so keeping flows efficient and under control is essential.
e-VSM is an innovative approach that gives you real-time end-to-end visibility of all your flows and identifies ways to optimize them
It relies on Internet of Things (IoT) technology and the ‘Zero G’ (or 0G) network developed by Sigfox to automatically track, from end-to-end and almost in real-time, all the flows you wish to optimize.
We use our toolbox to quickly integrate and analyze the sensor’s data
This type of temporary tracking can be a first step to long-term operational tracking. We typically help clients on the following topics:
- Sub-contracting flow acceleration
- Lead-time reduction
- Route audit
- Detection of security issues and grey flows
Autonomous & connected devices are used to monitor inventory. This specifically applies for gaz and chemical tanks, for bulk materials, for storage in remote places, etc…
Using IoT increases visibility on inventory levels, thus improving the service level or decreasing the managed inventory.
We run business cases and pilots to identify where these use cases are most relevant and identify the best available solutions to scale-up
- Inventory monitoring
- Shortage alerting
