Service optimization thanks to real-time data

Durable and reliable PILLER blowers are used worldwide. But that was not enough for the global player based in Germany. The company wanted to offer even better service to its customers. Maintaining technology leadership with predictive maintenance, minimal machine downtime and new digital service approaches was the goal. PILLER put its money on IoT technology from SAP and on Sycor's know-how to accomplish this. Now PILLER customers will be able to further optimize the capacity utilization of their blowers using sensor data – and PILLER Customer Service will be able to respond even more quickly when service is required.  

Internet of Things and IoT for SMEs

Optimize logistics processes with IoT

SAP Connected Goods & SAP Global Track and Trace

Equip your facilities and products with sensors, and collect the data you need to optimize and automate your logistics processes. With SAP Connected Goods and SAP Global Track and Trace, each connected system knows the exact location of every part – in the company and beyond. The IoT system connected to your ERP analyzes the data in order to improve production and logistics, for the best capacity utilization of both. Orders can be created with sensor control. Packaging can be automated as well. By connecting your machines and products to the Internet of Things, you can view the status of your logistics and production facilities in real time. Failures are predicted and processes automatically adapted to changed production conditions.

Optimize service processes with IoT

SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service & SAP Asset Intelligence Network

The Internet of Things makes it possible for you to offer better service to your customers. By equipping your products with sensors, you can monitor them in real time and anticipate repair needs through predictive maintenance. This improved service model will not only thrill your customers but also you. After all, downtime and express repairs are a losing business for both sides.

You want to rethink your service business and modernize it with an appropriate IoT scenario? Our Industry 4.0 experts help you find the appropriate IoT model and implement it with SAP technology.

Get fit for the future with IoT

Pay-per-Use & data delivery

With the Internet of Things, you can change your business model and, for example, offer pay-per-use. You no longer sell the product, but the use of the product, and bill for this at a rate agreed with your customer. Instead of an excavator for example, you sell the amount of earth moved per ton. The sensors on the excavator automatically supply the billing data, which the customer can view live in the business portal. Thus the customer only pays when they actually need the excavator, and you can make it available to other customers when it is not in use. Data collected during production can also be sold to the customer, who can use it for their production or their own services.
