Meet our customer hero
Digitalization, the regulatory environment and increasing global competition are driving unprecedented change. Organizations must adapt their business strategies, better manage risk and simplify critical processes to avoid being disrupted by change. Many organizations are turning to the Internet of Things (IoT) to optimize operations and drive new business models.
Companies like Gardner Denver are a prime example of organizations seizing the opportunity to innovate and take advantage of a connected, digital future. By embedding IoT technology in its products, Gardner Denver is able to redefine its relationship with its partners and customers.
Gardner Denver's customers rely on the continuous operation of their industrial equipment. Eliminating downtime is the ultimate goal. Gardner Denver sought a cost-effective way to increase machine quality and reduce downtime.
The company sells its equipment through a strong, global set of partners and distributors. It needed a way to capture operational information from its machinery and provide it to the organizations best placed to support its customers. Each partner and distributor takes ownership in its customers and pride in the quality performance of its equipment. Delivery of secure and unique solutions by each partner and distributor is critical to ensure high-performing machinery.
Gardner Denver adopted and configured the Cumulocity IoT platform to provide condition monitoring for its highly important industrial air compressor business. Gardner Denver chose air compressors as a first deployment for the Cumulocity platform because of the need for a secure, unique IoT platform for the distributors and service partners for each of its 16 brands. This IoT solution provides Gardner Denver with:
And equally important, each Cumulocity IoT platform is fully rebranded for each Gardner Denver brand, providing a uniquely branded customer experience that distributors and service partners can offer.
Cumulocity IoT allows Gardner Denver to successfully offer its IoT-powered condition monitoring service to its global customers through its extensive network of distribution and service partners. Proactively monitoring equipment, identifying faults and sharing that information in real time with partners increases the value that these distribution and service partners can offer to their customers.
