IoT Consulting - Case Study
IoT Consulting – Healthcare Industry
➤ A producer of premium medical devices, with digitally ready products that compete with industry leading companies. Their principle of “Digital First” has brought Digital Transformation to the forefront of their business, rather than as an afterthought to be integrated into the existing processes they have.
➤ They specialize in building cryogenic refrigeration enclosures which are controlled using PLC based systems. They needed a solution for Cloud IoT Based Human-Machine-Interface platforms to make sure their enclosures were smart and connected.
The issue lay in interfacing the pre-existing PLC based systems with IT networks and Applications.
➤ Chools, with its extensive experience in the domain of IoT solutions, designed one that combined aspects of several Microsoft technologies, which included Azure IoT, Azure Cloud-Native Services and Azure Data Platform, with Xamarin Cross Platform Mobility, to come up with a fully developed Digital Platform.
➤ The idea was to onboard new product ranges onto this platform, while catering to a slew of new customers and new medical products. Both of which were expected to grow exponentially.
A 5-year roadmap was created for this purpose.
➤ The primary clients of the company being Pharmaceutical industries, Hospitals, Clinics and Labs, they were afforded the unique opportunity to monitor the health and status of their products using the Cloud Web based App. Their customer and service teams now had Redundant Remote Monitoring & Management capabilities over their cryogenic freezers.
➤ The addition of the IoT application gave the company an added advantage, as they did not need another team to run the application. Chools was able to do this remotely, leaving the client more time to focus on the development of their products.
IoT Consulting – Food and Beverages Industry
➤ One of the country leaders in the Food and Beverages Industry, they cater to a customer-base of more than 30,000. They cater to various businesses which include restaurants and cafes across the country. Orders for their products come through two channels. Their website, and their call centres.
The temperature of the product during transit has to be maintained, and kept within a standard threshold, failing which the product would degrade, and be returned by the customers.
➤ Also, every effort had to be made to prevent incorrect loading of goods, and damaging the goods during transit. A process which would require the drivers to make manual adjustments and issue credits to the customers before collecting cash.
The client needed an IoT solution for making the process more efficient and simple.
One that allowed drivers to deliver the product more easily, eliminating the process of making manual adjustments in the invoice.
➤ Bluetooth temperature sensors were mounted in the truck to continually check the temperature. The IoT enabled trucks used Bluetooth Zenmeasure sensors to track the temperature of every shipment. Real-time monitoring was achieved by triggering Windows Phone background tasks, sending real-time data about temperature to Azure Event Hub. The data was then stored locally in Azure SQL DB.
➤ Azure Event Hub allowed for simultaneous collection of data from multiple sensors in the truck.
Data that was then pulled in to Azure Stream Analytics. Real time data was now available in graphical form to the company, with static data being stored in local repositories in Azure SQL DB.
➤ The solution helped the company upscale their service. More than 60,000+ orders per month, with 500+ connected devices helping deliver high quality products to the customers.
