The IIoT is the manufacturers’ version of the Internet of Things, (think smart watches or smart fridges), where sensors embedded in technology collect data and analyse it. In the IIoT, these sensors can collect data from machinery on the production line to help with maintenance, prevent stoppages and increase efficiency. Data collected from the sensors, combined with data from CRM, ERP and other digitised services, can be analysed and will help to make the factory not only more efficient, but more effective too.

Manufacturing companies that have digitized their operations are already seeing some staggering results:

82% increased operational efficiency and improved product quality*

20-50% reduction in holding costs

85% growth in forecasting accuracy

30-50% reduction of total machine down time

10-40% reduction in maintenance costs
