Manufacturing & supply chain

Connectivity leads to new business models and new opportunities

The capabilities offered by wireless M2M technology, taken together, help address the full range of major manufacturing and supply chain challenges that companies face. The challenges of cost pressure, the need for greater visibility, and new sources of risk are particularly suited to solutions built around M2M.

Operational efficiency drives M2M in the Supply Chain. The manufacturing and supply chain sector comprises a diverse group of applications, most of which run on very tight margins. The adoption of M2M technology is driven by the requirement to achieve efficiency savings. Investment in M2M is largely stimulated by the desire to reduce wastage, optimize and reduce fuel consumption, monitor inventory levels and condition, enhance preventive maintenance and render operational otherwise economically unviable assets such as remote wells.

SIGFOX is able to provide unique resolutions to these challenges, enabling extremely small and power-efficient sensors. Through its wide area coverage and managed network, factories and smart warehouses can now benefit from true visibility throughout the supply chain, managing overall processes and workflows whilst increasing quality and reducing the cost of disruptions.
