LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 12/09/13 -- Marketing Release - Increasing the competitive advantage of your business can help enhance the agility and edge against your competitors. Through Remote Monitoring & Control Service (RMCS) a business can reduce its costs and save valuable time, which is outlined in a new M2M whitepaper published by Vodafone.
Machine to machine (M2M) communications is one of the most disruptive technologies available to businesses today, and its potential is only just starting to be exploited.
In Vodafone's new whitepaper, the benefits of machine to machine (M2M) communications are explored. These benefits include managing and maintaining widely distributed industrial equipment, better equipment uptime, lowered servicing costs, and the ability to offer entirely new commercial and pricing models.
Vodafone's integrated Remote Monitoring and Control Service combines hardware, a managed M2M connectivity service, and applications, in order to enable customers to remotely monitor and control their M2M-enabled equipment with a single partner.
Integrated Remote Monitoring & Control Service offers a number of benefits to help keep a business one step ahead of its counterparts. RMCS gives management the ability to automatically monitor the health of an organisation's assets, in real time, without having to send an engineer to the site -- this increases efficiency.
The management system scans for faults and defects, such as unwanted vibration or rapid increases in temperature, and acts accordingly to these problems. For example, by automatically booking an engineer to visit with the right spare part, remotely initiating a failover to a backup system, or polling all the other pieces of equipment to double check for a similar emerging fault.
RMCS sensors operate 24/7 and can alert management at the very first sign of a problem: its "just in time" servicing prevents failures before they occur.
Through this system monitoring, your business can change the way you charge your customers, which will benefit cash flow measurement of the customer and on-going revenue steam, giving your business a higher profit margin.
