Global industrial internet of things (IIoT) company Relayr has entered into a strategic partnership with Flanders, an Indiana-based specialist in power systems engineering and custom manufacturing for heavy industry. The companies will develop and deploy remotely monitored, intelligent solutions to Flanders’ global customers.
The partnership is expected to leverage Relayr’s artificial intelligence-based IoT technologies to disrupt how conventional assets are managed in applications such as mining. Relayr said this will give customers access to new digital services to reduce downtime and improve asset performance. Operators will be provided with insights into critical failures and efficiency levels, it said.
“The benefits of a digital transformation can be significant, and an increasing number of organizations across nearly every industry are embracing IoT solutions to improve operational efficiency, maximize productivity, and generally change the way they do business for the better,” said Guneet Bedi, general manager of the Americas for Relayr. “Our partnership with Flanders will have a far-reaching impact on our respective customers, and we’re excited to begin working with them on this exciting new endeavor.”
For Flanders, the partnership includes a shift to a predictive service model, which offers uptime and business interruption guarantees.
“As we move further into the world of Industry 4.0, it is increasingly clear that undertaking a digital transformation is a necessary move in order for us to continue to serve our customers with the world class electrical expertise Flanders is known for,” said Shawn Collins, executive director, US Regional Service Centers, Flanders. “Relayr’s expertise and thought leadership in IIoT, combined with our application knowledge, will yield solid business outcomes for our customers.”
