IoT Asset Tracking and Condition Monitoring
A critical part of business operations is knowing the location and condition of your high value shipments. In some cases, if a shipment is compromised or predicted to be compromised, the shipment can be salvaged. Today’s precise IoT 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 you the ability to quickly locate items globally and alerts you to condition changes that affect your shipments, such as temperature, humidity, tilt, shock, acceleration, broken seals, and other variables (including custom variables).
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 triggered, allowing you to take corrective action before products are compromised.
OEMs use SenseIT to monitor shipments of industrial ceramics; expensive electronics that are sensitive to impact caused by dropping, rough driving, or general mishandling; and construction equipment 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 is invaluable.
By taking advantage of SAP IoT consulting services for OEMs from Domain Consulting Group, your business will be able to improve enterprise-wide productivity and expand your asset tracking capabilities. Get in touch with us at (610) 374-7644 ext. 7005 for a free demo and consultation.
