Sebastian Hills and Richard Creighton discuss the Art of The Possible in the IoT space
Staycold International, a leading South African manufacturer of self-contained commercial fridges and freezers, has just released “The Art of the Possible,” an IoT vlog on cloud technology and asset management. The vlog includes a discussion between a refrigeration expert and an IoT enabler on the possibilities that exist within IoT and how it can be used to transform asset management. This short vlog is a conversation starter for Asset Managers on the art of the possible: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5g-EgY3_10&t=3s
The discussion centers around how wrapping an asset in digital layers, in the beverage cooler space in particular, opens up a world of possibility, from knowing where the assets physically are, to condition monitoring, to giving insights for innovative marketing strategies.
Sebastian Hills (Staycold International) and Richard Creighton (Digital Twin) have spent over 5 years exploring and probing the opportunities of IoT in this market. They share what have learned along the way using this modern tooling technique and toy with “the art of the possible” in this exciting collaboration of industries.
Their talk covers the various layers that should be considered when an enterprise is exploring how IoT can be used to deliver a step change in how trade marketing equipment can be transformed from a blunt tool into a cutting-edge hero of activities. How to collect data, how to backhaul that data to the cloud, the cost of collecting and backhauling, how the data is presented, and then what all that data means, all come into the conversation.
Developing a cost-effective way of digitizing a low-value, high-volume asset is often not an easy task for Asset Managers, but this discussion raises conversation points, offers guidance, and highlights the pitfalls that could become apparent when considering or approaching such a challenge. Sebastian and Richard discuss what is happening in and around a fridge that now has the ability to talk through the cloud.
The conversation also considers cost savings per unit over the life of large fleets as well as creative marketing strategies companies could use to differentiate themselves from their competitors.
Staycold International and Digital Twin encourage viewings of their “The Art of the Possible” vlog and joining the conversation to see what is possible in the refrigeration space.
