Companies that use forklifts and pallet trucks need to manage the usage and maintenance of the batteries that provide motive power, so they can avoid costly downtime in the warehouse. A leading global manufacturer of stored energy solutions approached IT solutions provider, Venture Technologies, to help design an enterprise Internet of Things (IoT) power management platform for batteries. Today, the manufacturer enjoys stronger customer engagement due to optimized power management with predictive analytics.
The company had already developed an array of smart sensors and placed them inside their battery products, so data about battery usage and condition was available to be leveraged in an IoT solution. The company wanted to design a solution that would help customers manage their battery operations more easily and effectively.
