Types of Products We Focus on

Industrial products

  • Control apps for enhanced production monitoring and control (including in real-time).
  • Improved production processes and product performance.

Complex consumer products

  • A central monitoring system to connect smart things (e.g., smart cars, smart thermostats, smart watering systems).
  • Control apps with advanced data analytics capabilities to analyze product use by customers.
  • Monitoring and control over smart, connected products with user apps.

Simple consumer products

IoT platforms and user apps for:

  • Healthcare devices (e.g., glucose meters, ECG monitors).
  • Household appliances (e.g., smart microwaves, security systems).
  • Fitness items (e.g., fitness bracelets, scales).

 

Functionality We Offer

Predictive and preventive maintenance

  • Assess productivity of a smart, connected product in a short- and long-term perspective.
  • Predict breakdowns and malfunctions of smart, connected products.
  • Adjust the performance of smart, connected products remotely.

Control via mobile and web apps

  • Get real-time information about smart, connected products with mobile and web apps.
  • Tune performance of smart, connected products.
  • Set up automatic behavior modes for smart, connected products.

Product usage analytics

  • Get feedback on the usage of a smart, connected product.
  • Identify the most popular and underused features to work on the product’s functionality.
  • Analyze collected data and discover the need to add new functionality.

Usage-based pricing

  • Charge the customers for the real use of smart, connected products’ functions with an app gathering the usage data, calculating usage costs, and sending bills to the customers.
  • Improve transparency of vendor-customer cooperation and save customers from unjustified expenses.

Answering frequent questions about smart, connected products

With what IT systems should smart, connected products integrate?

For effective functioning, we suggest integration with enterprise systems (analytics system, ERP software, etc.).

Can the maintenance of smart, connected products be outsourced to independent service providers?

Sure! We will help you plan the maintenance process and mitigate the risks of delegating smart product maintenance to one or several independent service providers. If several vendors are going to deal with different smart, connected products, we will help coordinate their activities to ensure smooth and effective product maintenance.

Can multiple smart, connected products be connected to one IoT platform?

Yes, it’s beneficial due to the high reuse of software. We are ready to adjust the components of an IoT platform (data warehouses, analytics and machine learning, control and user applications) to ensure effective cohabitation of your smart, connected products.

How to effectively handle data generated by smart, connected products?

We help you design or update your IoT solution to effectively ingest, store, process, and analyze data generated by sensors in smart, connected products. Thus, you can ensure quick and valuable insights from constantly growing data volumes.
