Ready to IoT-Enable Your Commercial Washing Machines?

With Semtech, The Future Starts Now

Transition to Selling Services

Commercial washing machine providers are using the Industrial IoT (IIoT) to expand their businesses. They are leveraging data, generated by machines in the field, to make services a significant revenue stream.

New, value-added services such as real-time monitoring, remote troubleshooting, and predictive maintenance help equipment makers set themselves apart from the competition and generate recurring revenues that buffer their business against times of economic uncertainty. Furthermore, such services increase customer satisfaction and loyalty.

For more than 25 years, Semtech (formerly Sierra Wireless) has been helping companies in the industrial sector design, develop, and deploy reliable and cost-effective IoT-based solutions. We provide the only device-to-cloud solution for IoT and offer proven expertise to help you leverage real-time data to grow your business.

Reduce Unplanned Downtime with Predictive Maintenance

Industrial IoT-based systems let washing machine operators gather useful data including temperature, water flow, load weight, cycle times and current operating status. It helps them assess performance in real time and make changes where necessary, even predicting the likelihood that a washing machine is about to fail. It also reveals usage patterns over longer periods, providing actionable intelligence that laundries can use to improve operations Schedule onsite visits according to need, and actual wear and tear, not the calendar.
