Reimagining Business Processes
When applying business analytical best practice, consider current SOPs, process and workflows that are performed across your building to identify areas where standards and processes have not been optimised or where they can be enhanced.
- Take existing technologies off the table and focus on developing strategic intent.
- Identify key areas of data collection.
- Leverage automation and integration to create a fully interconnected and interoperable environment that supports precision practices.
- Revisit existing technologies with a view to retrofit rather than rip and replace.
- Ensure you are creating an environment that is agnostic to any new technologies that may be created in the future.
Ready, Set, Configure
Ruggedized to suit an industrial environment, designed to endure even the harshest conditions and proven effective in the fields, the technology stack 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 digital dashboard and accessible remotely enabling real-time visibility and in-shift optimisation without disruption.
Avoiding An Information Overload
IoT should make it easier to operate based on data and rules. Having insight into down-the-line 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 FogHorn, our intelligent edge gateway, and connecting IP-enabled devices directly to our IoT platform. Once connected, data is consolidated from all devices and systems to provide a single horizontal view of your systems and devices’ entire business ecosystem.
FogHorn’s 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 analogue-, 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
Switching IoT on in your building should not be daunting. Looking at the most obvious problems first and tackling them one at a time gives you financial and operational control, driving your own objectives and allowing you to harvest the benefits of your digitalisation decisions. Involving staff and tenants in the process and using a series of dashboards to show progress in what is iteratively improved based on real data, creates a sense of pride in efforts being made to lower carbon footprint and improve staff and visitor experiences.
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.
Our Iot solution 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.
Together with our solution partners, we work with businesses to design digitalisation strategies that are deployed in line with business goals, harnessing the magic that makes each organisation unique.
