How MEGLA Implements IoT to Unleash Data
Unlocking, Extracting and Analyzing Data through the Power of IoT Solutions
MEGLA, one of the leading IoT solution providers in Germany, was looking to innovate IoT solutions for existing and new customers who need to access data from their POC and field devices.
About the Client
MEGLA provides its customers with IoT solutions, system integration, and software development across various industries. It brings more than 25 years of professional, IT project management, predictive maintenance, and IoT experience to the digitization table. MEGLA’s line of work involves the execution of strategic IoT solutions. It brings new IoT value for both new and current customers who are interested in implementing this technology and increasing ROI.
Extraction of data: Many of MEGLA’s customers simply cannot access and analyze their data due to old technology, sensors, and devices, which keeps the valuable data locked inside. They needed an IoT solution that will access, unlock, and share the data easily.
They also required technology to help them identify the various types of IoT needs of their customers to provide them with customized solutions. Their customers’ needs range from property management to redesigning and integrating equipment. It’s an immense challenge, dealing with a wide variety and multitude of sensors to centralize data in one system, with easy access to it.
With MEGLA’s long-term plan, they are able to provide IoT solutions to all their customers across all industries by connecting any type of sensor – from the simple to complex – to the Axonize platform. Even old sensors, without internet access, were connected to IoT gateways, with the ultimate goal of data extraction.
Customers began experiencing the full benefits of the platform, using tools such as the dashboard and alarms. The Axonize dashboard allows customers to easily analyze the data in many different ways, using widgets and alarms.
“The alarms are such a great tool. Anyone who can control a smartphone can use Axonize – because it’s so easy and straightforward. The Axonize platform makes our customers very happy because it’s so easy to use,” said Christian Nowak, Business Area Manager Industry 4.0, MEGLA GmbH.
MEGLA’s future plans include evaluating all products, with the final goal of reaching a 1:1 device/customer ratio instead of the 50:1 it currently has. By employing Axonize’s scalable technology, MEGLA can begin working on that reachable goal in a short time frame, scaling to smaller businesses while using low-cost gateway and sensors.
MEGLA was looking for an easy-to-use “dashboard solution” platform, containing many widgets and provided a true solution to customers. After many frustrating experiences with other companies, they turned to Axonize.
For MEGLA, one of the initial benefits of the Axonize IoT platform is the ability to create mutual devices and sensors, which immediately will enable customers to monitor snow consumption on their roof, as well as other weather related challenges, and to improve quality of life. These visuals not only help convince customers to use the platform but give them a greater idea of the capabilities the platform has.
Other important features of the Axonize platform that came into play for MEGLA were short development time, many widgets, top-notch support, and the continuously growing number of features and capabilities available within the platform itself.
“Time is money. The ability to scale, very quickly and time efficiently is what it’s all about. Axonize unleashes your data so you can achieve your goals very quickly,” Nowak said.
