Merging IoT with Field Service to Drive Machine Uptime and Proactively Resolve Equipment Failures - Before They Occur
BOSTON, MA – August 20, 2019 – OnProcess Technology, a global leader in service optimization, today announced a joint solution in partnership with edge computing pioneer MachineShop. Together, OnProcess and MachineShop are transforming field service from reactive to proactive, and beyond, with their Connected Field Service solution.
“The terms ‘proactive’ and ‘predictive’ have been pervasive in field service for years,” says Sarah Hatfield, Vice President of Product for OnProcess. “But we’re changing the game - gone are the days of relying on historical data to predict what might happen. With Connected Field Service, OnProcess and MachineShop are harnessing machine signals directly from the edge and using device specific real-time inputs to service equipment before it fails - driving machine uptime.”
“In partnering with OnProcess, we’re not only making it easier than ever to manage connected devices, we’re unlocking new levels of value - enabling service providers to deliver a truly seamless customer experience, significantly reducing their cost to serve, and facilitating a proactive business,” says Michael Campbell, Chief Executive Officer for MachineShop.
