IoT Cloud Software as a Service –
Translator between smart devices and your Business Semantics

The Predictive Supply Chain Dilemma

The closer to reality and the more detailed data on material flow events are available, the better predictions and live micro-optimisations can be enabled.
BUT: Analytical IT systems need to understand a growing number of IoT sensors (using diverse technologies and a variety of data output) from materials management and connect them on the fly. At the same time, these systems must be available globally and across borders and translate IoT data into the language of materials management, as well as connect distributed stakeholders of heterogeneous levels of digitalisation.

With the TeDaLoS cloud solution, this is realised quickly, efficiently and future-proof.

Seamless transparency in real-time

THE CORE FUNCTIONS

SENSOR SYSTEMS

With the many directly installed sensors, your units can perform their individual measurement tasks to detect quantites, consumption, demand...

INDEPENDENT POWER SUPPLY

This economical technology is guaranteed to operate for many years. Energy sources are adapted to suit the intended application.

CLOUD-BASED

Direct communication with the European TeDaLoS Cloud. Your infrastructure is not imposed upon by additional flows of data.

LOCALISATION

Use our tracking in transport, in your inventory or at remote sites. You do not need any local infrastructure for this.

COMMUNICATION

A multitude of wireless communication channels assure continuous reception of data. Even at locations with unknown infrastructure.

INTELLIGENCE

Remote intelligence delivers fast response capability during transport, storage and consumption of goods and materials.

Auto-ID

Integration in your load carrier system via standard Auto-ID designation.

TEMPERATURE

Warning systems that report violations of min. and max. temperature limits immediately and that make it possible to respond rapidly.

SMART VARIETY – FUTURE-PROOF

Connecting hardware directly to the ERP is so yesterday

Hardware connectivity projects have traditionally tied up your IT staff. With rigid data connection, you have had to accept the risk of flexibility loss to choose hardware providers, i.e. also in changing the semantic meaning of the hardware created data points.
The Cloud software speaks the language of enterprise resource planning and thus of your IT systems – completely decoupled from the choice of physical sensor technology.
Diversification or scaling of your measurement technology for stock levels, withdrawals, demand, etc. can thus be implemented quickly without multiplying your IT connections.
Effect: homogeneous stock level platform independent of technical recording method = future-proof in the IoT.

Auto-ID and eKANBAN by and for external stakeholders

Without having to programme this in your IT or on the hardware, you can now carry out the ID mapping of RFID, barcode, etc., quantity conversion logic and reorder thresholds (to be specified in your standard material units!) from any computer or smartphone in the online software – and of course you can change them yourself at any time. The cloud software is focused on NON-IT users. Enable other stakeholders to access graphical stock level and material flow data online – without them having to understand the hardware or IDs systematics. Ideal as a white-label platform to show REAL stock levels at managed inventory locations.
Effect: Online platform for digital twin = transparent management performance even for NON-IT users.

Open up proprietary hardware solutions

By connecting to the cloud software, any ID read events, withdrawal timestamps or switching events (buttons, paddle shifters, etc.) immediately become material numbers, cost centres, quantity information and stock level bookings. This brings maximum freedom in the choice of hardware, sensors and future smart IoT devices. The homogeneous representation in the cloud software despite mixing manufacturers or measurement methods also means that you do not need any additional IT resources if you want to connect new or different technologies.
Effect: Implementing and setting up IoT projects in your warehouse and production, as well as in your customers’ warehouse without IT know-how = faster projects and scaling.

Intuitive Software

Smart decisions

The intuitive Cloud software manages your sensor units and interprets sensor readings. With this advance interpretation, only substantive data land in your leading system (e.g. SAP). Smart decisions by the TeDaLoS Cloud prevent your leading system from initiating an incorrect process. For example, when goods are removed from stock at an unexpected point in time, an alarm is sent to the security service instead of a reordering process being initiated.

Available anywhere, at any time

The online interface provides you and your employees with a quick overview of the vital functions of technology and of the status and condition of your goods. With our system, you can call up your data at any time on all Internet-capable devices. TeDaLoS is supported by all the most commonly used smartphones, tablets and PCs and the application is as simple and intuitive as an app.

Improvement in your supply chain

We offer you the scope to grant customers and suppliers an insight into your inventory management system. This creates processes that your leading system would not find appropriate, or even practically feasible. In just a few minutes and without IT expertise, you can for example use TeDaLoS to establish a new cooperation link in the supply chain that communicates the current inventory level in your warehouse to your supplier with real-time transparency.

COMMUNICATION

With the integrated wireless communication over multiple channels (2G/3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, LoRaWAN, NB-IOT, CAT-M,…), continuous availability and transparency can be established in transport, at external storage locations and at unknown sites. The sensor units are designed for 2-way communication and they simplify operation over a period of many years. For example, you never need to enter commands for the sensor unit into the device physically. Instead, naturally enough, an encrypted link protects the security of your data.

INTEGRATION

This complete solution was designed for users without any technical background. All of the components needed are integrated and ready for operation ex-factory – all you need to do is to switch the unit on. Integration in your business is as simple as setting down a pallet – no additional overhead for building systems management or IT staff – and your employees do not require any additional training. The TeDaLoS Cloud software was designed to be operated using a web interface and to be connected to your existing system by means of standard interfaces (e.g. a materials management system or ERP). We are also pleased to take account of any specific individual interfaces in your system or of other companies in your supply chain. This means that more value can be added, e.g. by linking the system up to your door access control system.
