Many study shows that students with the best daylighting in their classrooms progressed 20% faster on math tests and 26% faster on reading tests in one year than those with minimal daylighting.
Rebuilding or renovating schools to high performance standards can have multiple positive impacts, including:
- A healthier, more productive learning environment, which has been shown to improve test scores and student attendance.
- Energy efficiency and renewable energy lessons can be incorporated into curriculum.
- Energy efficiency is cost effective, reducing the life-cycle cost of new and renovated schools.
Reimagining Business Processes
Applying business analytical best practice, consider current SOPs, process and workflows that are performed across your business ecosystem to identify areas where standards and processes have not been optimised.
- Provide relevant insights and operational functionality to users.
- Leverage automation and integration to create a complete company overview and reliable, precise data collection.
- Enable primary business functions while accommodating anomalies that can cause downtime.
Ready, Set, Configure
Designed to suit an industrial or infrastructure environment, designed to endure even the harshest condition and proven effective in the field, the IOTSG solution is the answer to ensuring competitiveness, and relevance, in the years to come. Quick to install and easily customisable in any industry, an entire business ecosystem is connected into a centralised Commander dashboard and accessible remotely enabling real-time visibility and in-shift optimisation without disruption.
Avoiding An Information Overload
As businesses digitalise, caution should be paid to not overloading operators with information and to automate specific processes like maintenance scheduling where possible. Having insight into knock-on effects of activity may boost efficiency and the business bottom line. To ensure effectiveness, work to provide the right information to the right people to drive better decision making and improve employee accountability.

Connected Your Way, From Edge To Cloud
This flexible end-to-end solution connects non-IP based devices (2-wire and similar) through Raptor, our intelligent edge gateway, and connects IP-enabled devices directly to our IoT platform, Commander.
Once connected, data is consolidated from all devices and systems to provide a single horizontal view of your systems and devices across the entire business ecosystem.
Raptor technology creates a normalised edge layer of physical and virtual intelligence that can be retrofitted, deployed and connected seamlessly into an ecosystem of existing technologies and things, radically reducing the cost of having to develop multiple edge integrations into disparate cloud applications.
Being able to retrofit onto all deployed devices, whether analog- or IP-based reduces:
- disruption to business processes
- cost of implementation
- cost of training
- cost and impact of enterprise-wide change management
- vulnerability at the edge
- technology disparity at the edge
- data strain on, and therefore costs of, networks
- processing required at the cloud platform level
- cost of edge integrated gateway maintenance
Real-time subsystem integration allows cloud platforms to be leveraged as the up-, and down-stream effects of an event-triggered occurrence are recalibrated throughout all edge-connected devices. The pieces of any business puzzle are in the box, and ready to be pieced together to create a big picture.
Operationalise And Reap The Benefits
Surpassing industry benchmarks globally, this technology-agnostic solution can be implemented in any industry, on any system and in any process leading to the collection, normalisation and aggregation of unbiased, actionable data and real-time business intelligence. The knock-on effect of complete visibility into all operations, the knock-down of operational silos and minimisation of downtime and incidents across the business ecosystem can be felt almost immediately.
An entire ecosystem, in your hands
Implemented anywhere, this solution becomes an enabler for optimal results across the rest of your business. Operational requirements, tied in with big data and market shifts unlocks the opportunities for organisations to move into the future – and beyond – with agility, dynamically shifting with supply and demand, resource availability and, ultimately, growth. Watch it all from the palm of your hand.
IoT.nxt is a unique rapid digitisation technology enabler that future-proofs enterprises, helping them leverage existing infrastructure investment and integrate into new technologies. The resulting interoperability and interconnectivity break down data silos and cuts out vendor lock-in.
Our IoT solution allows our clients to rapidly transform their businesses and move into the digital age quickly, and without disruption to operations.
