Distence wants to help its customers benefit from the digital disruption. With our technology an industrial company can take advantage of our experience and technology in digitizing industrial assets and enhance their processes, build new Smart Services fast. We want to help our customers make or save money. Or, as so often is the case, both make and save money. IIoT will lead into the revolution of business models. The change is happening, and I recommend all industrial companies to start investigating this. The key to success is the business case. Without that, there are no reasons to invest in IIoT. The business case is worth exploring. It is worthwhile to invest in studying, testing and optimizing the business case. The rewards are significant.
With our productized technology, we are very often able to set up a pilot fast and at an affordable cost. Most often we are talking about an investment around 5.000 – 10.000 euros. During 2017 we delivered numerous IIoT pilots. We are proud when we see our Customers do good business using our technology. For example, in one case in Sweden, after setting one service up and running on Friday, it produced additional earnings of approximately 8.000 euros over the weekend. Another company hired several new field service engineers to support the profitable growth of their service business after introducing our solution to their business.
In 2017 Distence grew as well. We hired more people, got new Customers and invested a lot in new technologies. Condence, our new IIoT-cloud solution, was released to production, we’ve developed new Smart terminals and developed our internal processes to enhance our way of working to serve our Customers even better. Based on this, in 2018 we are stronger than ever, really well prepared to offer our Customers our expertise and technology to truly help benefit from the digitization, EDGE-computing (or as we call it – Distributed Intelligence) and connectivity of industrial assets.
