We bridge the gap between businesses and technologies

We help our customers to answer to questions such as how IoT affects the current business models, what are the new business models and opportunities, how to calculate the return on investment (ROI), how to proceed with the integration and how to communicate that inside the organization.

How we work

1. Audit of the manufacturer

we analyse current processes and related technologies, we prepare a tailored solution, we estimate the financial benefits, we determine the steps for implementation, we plan time and budget

2. Preparing and connecting the equipment

we identify the appropriate way to connect the equipment to the cloud and we provide assistance if technical changes are required

3. Setup accounts, notifications and analytics

we create the required accounts for the users, we set rules for check and notifications and we tune the system to perform the necessary data analyses

4. Results analysis and actions for further improvements

after a period of time we analyse the results of the integration, we compare them to the planned goals and expected results and we prepare recommendations for possible improvements
