Embrace the Internet of Things and create innovative business solutions in a matter of weeks

Turn your business operations around with the Internet of Things

All businesses want to operate more efficiently, safely and profitably, yet traditional technology and manufacturing solutions can make this difficult.

That is why eBECS developed its FastThings solution.

The Internet of Things can help you improve equipment reliability, boost supply chain efficiency, optimise asset utilisation and control health and safety at all your sites remotely.

So, what is The Internet of Things?

Simply put, the Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of devices or objects connected to the Internet. These ‘things’ can range from a humidity sensor in a manufacturing environment to a gauge on an agricultural silo or even a washing machine in a home. By utilising embedded connectivity or a data gateway, all these diverse devices have the capability to transmit valuable data back and forth to a centralised location. Gartner Group projects that there will be 25 billion connected ‘things’ by 2020.

Whatever industry you operate in, you have the opportunity to use interconnected devices to create innovative new business applications that will improve all your business processes. All you need is a big idea – and eBECS will help you turn it into a simple IT solution, using Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform.

eBECS has extensive experience working with organisations across multiple industry sectors, to help them achieve their ambitions with Microsoft technology. While Internet of Things projects can often seem incredibly complex, our skill lies in creating simple, functional solutions – in the shortest possible timeframe – to deliver business benefits quickly.
