Managing business assets remotely, from departure to destination, is challenging and often impossible. IoT-enabled asset tracking and monitoring systems, such as SenseIT IoT by Domain, can help you optimize the processes at the core of your business.
Based in the Philadelphia area, Domain Consulting Group delivers exceptional SAP solutions for small and mid-sized businesses looking to leverage enterprise resource planning technology to significantly improve efficiency and productivity and achieve operational excellence.
Monitor Assets as They Move
Today’s precise IoT solutions enable you to track and monitor your assets across the globe – no matter where they are.
SenseIT IoT by Domain enables manufacturers and distributors to place innovative sensors on a shipment to monitor actual products in real time.
Sensor data is captured from around the world, standardized, consolidated and maintained in a SAP HANA database in the cloud, and pushed to ERP. It gives businesses the ability to quickly locate items globally and alerts them to condition changes. In some cases, it allows for the salvage of a compromised product.
In addition to monitoring shipment delivery times, SenseIT IoT will also sense:
- GPS Location
- Tilt (Axis X, Axis Y, Axis Z)
- Shock/drop impact (mishandling)
- Light (e.g., when a trailer door is opened)
- Broken seals (planned; not yet available)
We can also develop custom sensors. If you have a need to measure something we do not currently support, we can develop it.
Benefits of ERP-Integrated Asset Tracking
SenseIT IoT provides visibility into your shipments that you have never had before!
All sensor data is fully integrated with your SAP Business One or other ERP, providing you with a single view of each planned or actual shipment. Use the intelligence to configure alerts, automate workflows, generate reports, view trends, and power real-time insights across your business.
You will gain the ability to:
- Track assets in real time, both in transit and at facilities;
- View shipments on a geospatial map where distressed shipments are shown in yellow or red;
- Know shipment locations at predefined times (e.g., every 1, 6 or 12 hours);
- Know temperature and temperature trends (approaching hot or cold threshold);
- Customize tolerances (minimum and maximum) that trigger alerts when met;
- Respond in real-time if tolerances are exceeded;
- Maintain a complete history of events related to each shipment;
- Maintain a vendor performance history over many shipments.
SenseIT users do not need to be SAP users. Domain Consulting Group provides a separate portal where users (SAP and non-SAP-users) can provision and track their shipments. Also, SenseIT IoT can often be integrated with other ERP platforms, such as NetSuite.
If you are considering an ERP solution for your business, you should select one that offers the most value and provides the greatest return on your investment. SAP Business One is an exceptional solution for customers who want to reduce costs, improve flexibility, improve quality, and eliminate operational complexity.
Whether your business involves temperature-controlled transportation of pharmaceuticals, vaccines, biotechnology, food, sensitive tropical plants or other commodities, or products 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.
