Four examples of IoT in practice
Internet of Things makes the supply chain more efficient
By combining their ERP system with the Internet of Things (IoT), businesses will be able to control various parts of the supply chain automatically. This makes it easier to assure continuity, while automating and streamlining asset and stock management. While most IoT narratives are all theory, this white paper illustrates how IoT can help businesses reduce costs and increase profits.
Data make it possible to make better decisions and run a more efficient business, so policies and interventions are increasingly based on hard facts. IoT allows businesses to intervene in processes more rapidly than ever before, increasing their versatility as well as their competitiveness. This white paper gives four practical IoT examples.
IoT guarantees the right amount of stock every time
Many businesses continue to struggle with stock management. How can they ensure that their stock is resupplied at the right time? Sensors that continuously monitor stock levels are the answer. When levels reach a certain threshold, an order is placed automatically. One of the largest bicycle manufacturers in the world is putting IoT into practice.
Connected asset management leads to control and lower costs
The meat sector uses IoT in an entirely different way. In the Australian pastureland, asset management is more or less entirely automated. Both cattle and water pumps are connected, turning the business into a much more integrated enterprise. As a result, costs are lower than ever before and managers know exactly what the status of their assets is.
Competitive edge and versatility
The white paper contains extensive descriptions of these and two other examples from the winemaking and mining industries. This information will help you understand how IoT can be used in practice to help you improve your supply chain management. Take inspiration from examples that prove IoT's usefulness on a day-to-day basis. IoT gives organizations the cost savings, control, versatility and competitive edge they are looking for.
