The Internet of Things (IoT) presents many opportunities for increasing profitability and taking control of the way you run your New York City manufacturing or distribution business. To leverage its power, consider partnering with the IoT consultants at Domain Consulting Group.
Domain Consulting Group, an experienced SAP partner based in Wyomissing and Philadelphia, helps clients leverage the IoT to develop and execute digital initiatives for smart-connected products, operations, manufacturing and service.
SAP Business One
With a variety of industry-specific modules, SAP Business One offers customers a single, cost-effective way to streamline their processes, act on timely information, and accelerate profitable growth.
This affordable, integrated ERP solution synchronizes all resources and systems within your organization, providing a comprehensive solution for managing your entire business – from sales and supply chain management, to financials and operations. It can help you reduce costs, improve flexibility, and eliminate operational complexity.
A core component of SAP Business One is its ability to enable business scenarios based on the Internet of Things (IoT) and leverage the SAP HANA platform to analyze and store the vast amount of data that IoT devices collect.
IoT Asset Tracking and Condition Monitoring
Knowing the location and condition of your high value shipments is a critical part of business operations. In some cases, if a shipment is compromised or predicted to be compromised, the shipment can be salvaged. Today’s precise IoT (Internet of Things) solutions enable you to track and monitor your assets across the globe, in real time, no matter where they are.
SenseIT IoT by Domain utilizes innovative sensors to capture data from around the world, standardizes, consolidates and maintains it in a SAP HANA database in the cloud, and pushes the data to ERP. It gives your business the ability to quickly locate items globally and alerts you to condition changes that affect your shipments, such as:
- GPS Location
- Tilt Axis X
- Tilt Axis Y
- Tilt Axis Z
- Impact Shock / Drop
- Broken Seal / Tampering (Planned; not yet available)
SenseIT can be used, for example, to monitor shipments of industrial ceramics or expensive electronics that are sensitive to impact caused by dropping, rough driving and general mishandling.
The shipment owner defines the tolerances of the product, attaches the sensor, and executes the shipment. SenseIT will send an alert if a measurement threshold is exceeded or the shipment is mishandled, allowing you to take corrective action before products are compromised.
If your business involves temperature-controlled transportation of pharmaceuticals, food, sensitive tropical plants, fruits or vegetables, or other products, such as construction equipment and materials that can be damaged in transit by deviations from handling protocols, the real-time visibility, tracking capabilities and condition monitoring of your shipments and assets can be invaluable.
SenseIT combines your ERP shipment information with the sensor data to provide a complete picture of the shipment in real-time. All the data is stored and processed in the cloud allowing you access to the information anywhere anytime.
