If you aren’t investing in smart data, you’re not engaging in smart business. Monitoring and reporting on your business’s most critical data points can help you improve safety, compliance, customer experience and business performance.

According to Forrester, 74% of businesses want to be “data-driven” but only 29% are actually successful at connecting analytics to action. Appropriate data gathering and reporting tools can help your business avoid this pitfall and turn your data into a powerful tool for saving you money and growing your bottom line.

Meet the Whisker.io™ IoT Platform, a comprehensive smart sensor, dashboard and analytics solution that can offer you next-level insights into your business.

Whisker.io™ can be deployed for 24/7 monitoring of your most critical equipment, processes and environmental parameters. Placing smart sensors on your equipment monitors the daily health of your business processes and gives you a 360 view into the baseline efficiencies of your operations.

Setting parameters on those sensors can alert you and your team when environmental factors are impacting the health of your equipment, such as temperature or humidity alerts. Knowing the continuous health, performance and risk factors of your operations will enable you to:

  • Conduct preventative maintenance
  • Uncover new efficiencies
  • Prevent downtime
  • Improve quality assurance
  • Identify operations trends
  • Improve safety and compliance

For most non-enterprise businesses, the unknown cost of transformation and the lack of solid data about benefits and returns keeps firms doing what they have always done – running equipment to failure and replacing it, or running standard preventative maintenance programs that require attentive employees.  While moving to condition-based maintenance or predictive maintenance represents the ideal, organizations remain skeptical that the investments required to reach those aspirational levels of automation and performance monitoring will yield positive returns.

Smart sensors provide a cost-effective, easy to implement, completely scalable solution for transforming your business operations at a pace that fits your business and your budget. Begin with monitoring your most important equipment and processes. Most businesses achieve ROI on their investment within months of implementation from detecting problems, uncovering efficiencies and preventing downtime.

How Does a Smart Sensor Work?

Smart sensors monitor their environments for specific physical properties that are then reported out via electrical signals to analytics dashboards. Examples of physical properties they can monitor and report on include temperature, flow rates, pressure, humidity, movement, etc. Basically, they capture data already present in your operations and package it into a continuous dashboard or report that you can use to make data-driven decisions about your business and flag and fix potential issues before they create a need for downtime or maintenance.
