IoT Industrial Automation: Smarter products
Market pressure like dropping oil prices and decline in energy consumption as well as the surge for new offerings are pushing industrial players to economize and innovate – two seemingly conflicting goals. Is your industrial business on a mission to improve reliability, optimize operations or create new customer value?
Turning any object into the source of information with sensors, Big Data processing and analytics, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) provides businesses with insights into the previously invisible aspects of operations, driving timely and more effective business decisions.
Industrial IoT benefits for your business
The Industrial IoT has the potential to deliver tangible results and create competitive edge for your products or services. Built upon the Industry 4.0 paradigm of connecting individuals and machines seamlessly across the value chain, the IIoT changes the way businesses operate, bringing digital transformation to Oil & Gas, Energy & Utilities, Transportation & Logistics industries:
- Increasing competitive advantage with IoT-enabled product
- Boosting end customer engagement and satisfaction
- Optimizing business processes via access to customer intelligence on product usage, quality, performance
- Equipment maintenance costs optimization.

Industrial IoT Case Studies
The Customer is a logistics company with multiple offices and warehouses in North America. With regard to their distribution across the region, the Customer had a need to centrally track and manage their printing assets. Existing maintenance process did not allow for prediction of printers’ malfunctions and downtime, which was a direct blocker of a Customer’s ability to provide logistics services.
PLVision developed a turnkey vendor-agnostic IoT solution for industrial printer status monitoring via a convenient, responsive web interface.
- In 1 week PLVision’s team gathered the source data and helped the Customer to define technical requirements according to their business needs.
- In 2 weeks solution architecture was developed based on Raspberry Pi platform with a 3G modem.
- In 6 weeks we enabled printer data collection using SNMP, as well as designed hardware proxy for secured Machine-to-Cloud communication.
- In 2 months the fully functional turnkey IoT solution underwent compliance testing and was presented to the Customer.
PLVision’s tailored solution allowed the Customer to optimize resource delivery logistics and planning via prediction of supplies, replenishment and utilization of consumables. As a result, they cut their maintenance costs by over 30% in 3 months.
The Customer is a North American industrial equipment manufacturer and maintenance service provider for Oil & Gas industry, striving to gain competitive edge via optimized asset maintenance cycle.
PLVision developed a cloud-based IoT solution aimed at equipment monitoring and data collection for further predictive maintenance analysis. With severe deadlines to be met due to the start of the Customer’s marketing campaigns and expected time-to-market, PLVision completed the project 1 week ahead of time.
- In 2 weeks PLVision’s team conducted requirements identification and analysis as well as commenced translating the Customer’s business needs into technical solution.
- In 7 weeks MVP was presented with fully developed core feature set.
- In 3,5 months we conducted the final demo and developed extensive user documentation according to established quality guidelines.
- In 4 months the Customer obtained a bundled IoT solution and was able to sell their hardware with a software package for data collection engineered by PLVision.
This comprehensive solution allowed end-customers to reduce their operational and maintenance costs by 25% due to absence of redundant on-site equipment checks to predict possible malfunctions, as well as cut total cost of ownership of their assets by up to 30%.
