Endress+Hauser, a manufacturer of instrumentation measurement technology for the process industry, looked to Digi to help develop a more robust inventory management system to take better advantage of the data from their flow, level, pressure and temperature measurement devices.
“We are serving the chemical industry, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, primaries and water and wastewater reserve-focused industries,” explains Thiemo Fichter, head of product management inventory management solutions, Endress+Hauser. “There, we can measure pretty much every process variable.”
Most customers were still in the manual inventory monitoring mode, unable to automate the replenishment process to get product when and where they needed it consistently. Digi Connect Sensor helped E+H collect and deliver the information customers needed to make more timely replenishment decisions.
“We provide this inventory information into the business process. Our customers can get everything out of one hand, from the sensor in the physical world via the connectivity of the data, converting this into information up to the level where we integrate this information into our customer’s business process, their ERP landscape.”
