The IIoT intelligent systems enable rapid manufacturing of new products, dynamic response to product demands, and real-time optimization of manufacturing production and supply chain networks, by networking machinery, sensors and control systems together.
Electronic Data Entry
Whilst computing has progressed by leaps and bounds, data is still largely entered as it was thirty years ago. This is by humans using keyboards, which is slow, costly and error prone. IIoT supports the entry of data electronically, accurately, in real-time and at significantly lower costs. Check out our Consultancy services, to see how we can help you..
The use of IOT “Sensors” is already well advanced. Sensors can be placed in virtually unlimited objects to monitor temperature, light, moisture, noise, distance, movement etc. This data can then be communicated in real-time to your ERP system to automatically initiate any appropriate process. Check out our Consultancy services to find out how we can work with you to explore and implement this technology. The objective would be to gain process benefits or product commercial advantage.
Supply Chain Automation
Most manufacturing companies still exchange data with customers/suppliers/partners in a readable form which gets re-entered manually. IIoT systems like our OneDocs support the sending and receiving of data in an XML format. This means that the documents can be automatically read and processed by any IoT object that can handle XML data. Supply Chain Automation has been promising huge advantages for a number of years. Products like OneDocs will make this a reality. Don’t wait until your customers make you do it.
IoT provides the opportunity to build intelligence into your products. This will probably be the biggest reason why many products become obsolete whilst other innovative products grab their market share. All companies should be looking at how they can improve their products using built in intelligence. Look at how cars have changed in recent years tyres, brakes, engines all have intelligence built in. As a keen but poor golfer I am waiting for a golf ball that I can easily find.

IIoT & ERP Communicating With Apps
Using IIoT your ERP system can interact with your employees, customers and suppliers and partners wherever they are in the world in real time. We are building a library of apps that can run on a mobile phone and exchange data or initiate processes. Take our OneApp for example that lets your salesman check stock and place orders whilst out on the road. If there is no signal it will work storing the data and automatically synchronize when reconnected.
