Custom Conntected Device Development
The experts at Level Up Development will navigate your organization through the complex technology decisions behind today’s connected devices and distributed systems. We’re experts at architecting a seamless user experience whether we’re tasked with an end to end solution or just part of it.
End-to-End Custom IoT Development
Our experts will guide you through every step of the way from choosing the right combination of hardware and infrastructure to ensuring your solution’s functionality is secure, stable and data flow is reliable and uninterrupted: among devices, applications and the Internet.
Level Up Development’s team of product design experts will work with you to create a blueprint for your connected device. The Blueprint outlines everything from device functionality to the micro interactions of the user interfaces.
One of the first steps of creating or turning an existing product into a connected device, is understanding your business objectives and the hardware needed to achieve them. Our team of experts will create an optimized solution that integrates seamlessly with your new or existing product line.
Depending on quantity, timeline, materials, and domestic sourcing requirements we will work with our established network of manufacturing partners to choose the best option for you. Should you have existing manufacturing capabilities in-house, we will work closely with them to provide the necessary technical data package and validate the delivered product.
Making smart decisions about how your connected devices will be used early will allow us to design a connectivity strategy that meets your goals and stays within both your power and fiscal budgets.
Building an infrastructure that accounts for scaling, agile deployments, data consumption, integrations, usage analytics, web and mobile devices is a crucial piece of any overall solution. Our expertise in enterprise infrastructure can be applied to the largest of organizations or a startup. No matter the size we’ll build out a solution that works for both your near and long term.
Protecting your data – and your customers’ – is a top priority for your organization. By understanding the various security threats your products and users may experience, we can customize the architecture of your system to minimize the risk of breach.
IoT Testing validates the interoperability, security and performance needed to ensure your users get the best-in-class user experience all your organizations presentation layers (device, web, mobile)
To run an IoT solution harmoniously each layer of your IoT ecosystem but be cared for continuously. Our IoT managed services allows your businesses to take a proactive approach towards operations and maintenance to avoid sudden breakdown and failures.
Regardless of where in the process you are – device manufacturing, app design – we can help.
Some ways an IoT solution can help your oraganizaton.
Operational Data and Efficiency
By turning your machines and devices into Connected Devices, you will be able to collect data in ways that were never before possible.
⚙ How are your Machines being used? How much fuel is being consumed?
⚙ How much vibration do they experience?
⚙ What are the actual forces being experienced by the operator on a per use basis?
⚙ Are they being run efficiently?
⚙ How much fuel do you use per job site?
⚙ How would switching to full electric impact your operation?
⚙ If you are running full electric, how much is it actually costing you?
Automatic Report Generation
Connected devices will give your customers the opportunity to save money and increase efficiency by automating reporting. Customers may be able to take advantage of automating regulatory reporting based on their Connected Device usage and even be set up to link directly to existing systems such as billing and scheduling software.
Connected Devices will allow real-time maintenance monitoring and notifications to become a reality. Your Connected Device can transmit use data directly to the cloud where advanced algorithms can calculate when maintenance is required based on the actual use of the Connected Device. Increased time between failures, and decreased downtime will translate directly into increase revenue for the users. No more guessing at maintenance or basing maintenance on a date. The Connected Device will tell you when it needs maintenance.
Once the use data has been collected from the Connected Device, we can start using the data in creative ways. We can start using the data to predict failures by integrating AI based systems to analyze the data and start making predictions. There will also be data use possibilities that we haven’t even thought of yet. What if we start comparing use data to weather data to find out how your Connected Device performs based on the weather? Maybe we start comparing your Connected Device use data to the price of fuel? Or use data, combined with geographical data, compared with economic data, compared with political data. Once we have the data available, the possibilities are endless.
This has been around for years for Fleet Tracking, but with the increased proliferation of IoT devices the capability is now a reality for your Connected Device. Your users and managers will know exactly where the Connected device is, and how it is being used at any time.
I have talked to a lot of dealers, and one of the concerns that dealers all seem to have is that they are losing sales of their devices, sales of maintenance and repair parts, and sales of services to online retailers. Users of the machines are ordering more of their parts from online sources and doing more of their maintenance outside of dealer networks. By creating the connection to the device and to the end user, the OEM’s and the dealers now have direct access to the end user or the manager of the equipment!
Let’s face it, accidents happen. We all know that accidents occur with many machines, and sometimes they are unavoidable, but there are ways that the IoT technologies can help. The Connected Device can tell what it is doing and where it is located. It also will know if it the Connected Device has experienced a severe impact, has had a roll over event or has flipped. This information can be used to trigger emergency calls ore request help. A panic button feature could also be added to allow the user to request assistance in an emergency situation.
