Client Challenges

fridge Monitoring

Sensor Monitoring

“Manually recording the temperature of drug fridges and cabinets across the hospital is labour-intensive and difficult to manage”

                                                                             Key Benefits of Automation:

  • Improve regulatory compliance with full electronic traceability
  • Continuous data recording
  • Alerts when temperatures move outside their safe parameters
  • Increasing productivity as employees can focus on more critical activities

Regulatory compliance can be a timely and costly burden on businesses in various Healthcare, Retail, Food and Pharmaceutical sectors.

Implementing an automated monitoring solution that continuously captures data such as temperature and vibration will ensure that compliance is easier to manage. The sensors connect wirelessly to a gateway, then send the data to the cloud, allowing 24/7 access. If the temperature readings move outside of the predetermined parameters instant alerts will notify staff. The Digital Solution will provide a full picture for compliance purposes, taking away the headache of manually recording the data.

Do you have a requirement for other sensors? For example, Pressure, Humidity, CO2 or Noise? Talk to our team today.

Preventative Maintenance

“Unplanned downtime costs my business over £3000 per hour and causes chaotic backlogs”

                                                      Key Benefits of Machine Monitoring:

  • Reduce equipment downtime by troubleshooting a machine outside of hours
  • Detect, solve, and prevent issues faster with real-time data
  • Avoid lost capacity

Machine breakdowns are normal occurrences in the manufacturing industry due to the repetitive function of machinery. However, equipment failure can lead to product delays, idle staff, dissatisfied customers and lost revenue. By retrofitting motorised equipment including conveyors, bearings, lifts and even fridges, operations teams can access real-time data on the motion, vibration and temperature of the machines.

The software package (mobile and web access) uses advanced algorithms to accurately portray trend-lines, predict failure and receive real-time alerts. Using this data operations teams can implement corrective actions before critical failures occur, reducing equipment downtime. The software package enables businesses to record and set parameters for “normal” machine operating behaviour.

The Smart Supply Chain

“I have limited visibility over my supply chain and inventory”

In retail Omnichannel is a multichannel approach to sales that gives customers a seamless shopping experience, either online from a desktop or mobile device, by telephone, or in a physical shop. This means that getting access to inventory in near real time can be incredibly powerful. Customers demand immediacy and here at IoT Horizon we can help with solutions to deliver this.

Automotive, Aerospace and other manufacturers need to ensure consistency and authenticity of their supply chain. At IoT Horizon we have multiple ways of tracking your products as well as giving them a digital identity.

We always start with the business case followed by our MPWR programme to validate the strategy, return on investment and lead you through a smart supply chain programme. This can include the right hardware, software and services.

Asset Tracking

“We have 100 vans and over 4000 assets. Ensuring that each team has the correct equipment onboard before they leave for the day is challenging”

 

Key Benefits of Asset Tracking:

  • Reduced work delays due to missing assets
  •  Reduced capital replacement for “currently not found” items
  • Improve employee productivity – no searching for lost assets
  • Real-time visibility
  •  Speed up the auditing process with automated stock control
 

Asset Tracking enables businesses to quickly locate company assets, benefit from real-time data, and keep records of an asset’s full transactional history; movements, issues, returns and inspections.

If you want to be certain on what assets you have, where they are located, who is using them, or whether they are available to use (e.g. not available due to maintenance/calibration) then an asset tracking solution is for you. Whether it is GPS, Bluetooth or RFID we will find the right technology and solution for your business and needs.

production Tracking

Production Tracking

“We have no visibility of employee productivity on the factory floor or how long a product takes to be manufactured”

Key Benefits of Production Tracking:

  • Live view of production with real-time visibility
  • Improve control of your production facility
  • Improve customer service – providing automatic status updates to customers
  • Paperless production with digital orders
 

Lean manufacturing demands more efficient ways of accomplishing the same tasks without reducing the quality.

Implementing a cloud-based system that captures accurate and real-time shop-floor data, ensures businesses can monitor and improve production and ultimately maximise profitability.

Do you know where the bottlenecks are in your business or where you can improve? Do you know your product’s true cost of sale? Can you make informed decisions without data for KPIs, product cycle time, throughput and productivity of staff?

Contact Tracing

“As my employees return to work, I need to be able to manage social distancing and track the spread of infection”

Key Benefits of Contact Tracing:

  • Track the spread of infection in the workplace
  • Maintain social distancing requirements
  • Alert those who need to self-isolate

Contact Tracing is a digital solution for tracking and alerting users, if he or she has been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. Notifications occur under certain defined parameters (for example, length of time of the contact or proximity of contact).

IoT Horizon provides solutions that actively help businesses comply with social distancing recommendations. Employees can be given a device that registers other devices in its vicinity. One solution will also sound an acoustic alarm if the distance falls below 1.5 meters for at least 20 seconds. This helps staff to stay alert when they get too close. Interactions by devices are logged on the system and this data can be used as part of contact tracing when issues arise in the workplace.

Identity Solutions

“I am looking to upgrade the student ID card across campus, as we have had several cloned cards and students accessing unsafe areas”

In today’s world, users have multiple digital identities and with more devices connecting to the internet, there are even more identities that need to be managed. Smart Cards for identification are a perfect example – we all carry and use them but do we use them effectively and securely?

Have you ever considered the physical security of your card? Unsecure cards are an easy way for criminals to gain access to your buildings. Have you considered using your smart card for other applications such as cashless vending, lockers, car parking, library services, loyalty or time and attendance? Have you considered a smart campus for students? Or even a Smart City?

Would you like to be advised on the options for physical and visual security?

You can also talk to us about…

  • Our design services
  • Open Loop and Closed Loop Payments
  • Tokenisation
  • Other RFID form factors including wristbands and fobs
  • Card printers and software
  • Accessories including printed lanyards and card holders

Facilities Management

“I have 5 security guards that have to fill in paper-forms and I am not sure that they complete their rounds. Can we track this?”

With the ever-increasing improvements of digital technology, there is now a greater ability to transform facilities management. Smart buildings can now increasingly monitor themselves. For example, IoT-equipped devices can send proactive messages when they require servicing or have a fault, while cloud-based monitoring improves control over operations. IoT Horizon can help to implement these technologies within your company and help increase the efficiency of facilities management.

Our application allows you to easily assign tasks and job locations to your engineers. Therefore individual engineers are aware of travel routes and required stock. As a result this will prevent employee frustration and reduce costs due to wasted journeys or missing orders. Reduce your paper trails and manual errors by automating and streamlining your processes with a user-friendly application.
