Internet of Things (IoT)

Enabling digital transformation for manufacturers

Internet of Things (IoT) with ERP

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the concept of connecting any device with an On/Off switch to the internet and/or to each other, in order to create a network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators and network connectivity, and enables objects to connect and exchange data.

If you are considering an Enterprise Resource Solution (ERP) solution and you want to leverage the power of the Industrial Internet of Things, the SYSPRO ERP ecosystem will enable your business to leverage new technologies and turn your blue-sky ideas into reality.

The Benefits of IoT for Industry

Strategic sourcing policies can control the requisition process and align procurement activities with the organizations’ strategic goals. By better managing the processes and policies that deal with the sourcing of goods and services during your purchasing cycle – with SYSPRO’s Preferred Supplier capability– you can decrease your purchasing risk, improve purchasing governance and ultimately achieve cost reductions.

This data can enable companies to pick up on inefficiencies and problems sooner, saving time and money, and can support automation and business intelligence efforts that drive optimal business performance – ultimately delivering a better service to their customers.
By incorporating AI, especially machine learning, into their IoT applications, these technologies can automatically identify patterns and detect anomalies from the sensors and data generated from the machines such as temperature, pressure, humidity, air quality, vibration and sound. Companies are finding that machine learning has significant advantages over traditional business tools for analyzing IoT data, including the ability to make operational predictions 20 times earlier and with far greater accuracy.
Technology such as RFID chips and IoT sensors in inventory holds great potential for quality control, sustainable traceability and overall supply chain efficiency – improving and automating the process from inventory management to delivery, all in real-time and without human intervention. And by harnessing the power of Artificial Intelligence together with IoT, the e-commerce user experience is enhanced, from product recommendations and selections to more efficient delivery.
With the Industrial Internet of Things, individual items, cases, pallets, containers and vehicles can be equipped with auto identification tags and tied to GPS-enabled connections to continuously update location and movement.
Key uses of IoT for industry
  • Connect IoT in the warehouse and AI with e-commerce platforms to enhance the customer user experience and improve service delivery
  • Streamline and automate business processes by automatically delivering business intelligence and alerts directly to operators and service agents
  • Better manage Inventory in the warehouse in real-time using IoT sensors to monitor and track incoming and outgoing items – improving traceability across the supply chain and significantly reducing the need for human intervention
  • With The Industrial Internet of Things, individual items, cases, pallets, containers and vehicles can be equipped with auto identification tags and tied to GPS-enabled connections to continuously update location and movement
  • Manufacturing Operations Management systems are embracing The Industrial Internet of Things technology to enable closer monitoring of more parameters and more sophisticated control of processes and quality as a result
