Stuttgart, 28 October 2021. Engineers check machine status in real time – on any device, anywhere. Entire plants control themselves, leaving managers to focus on data driven, innovative business models.
To bring scenarios like these to life, GFT is expanding its International Competence Centre for Industrial Solutions. The IIoT hub is currently developing a new range of platform-based solutions that enhance clients’ sustainability. The aim is to reduce emissions and energy costs.
Manufacturing companies seize IIoT benefits
Managers in manufacturing have found that IIoT solutions are key to boosting their competitiveness. They are advancing fast to deploy those solutions throughout their organisations. GFT supports them by ramping up its specialist capacity: its hub dedicated to developing IIoT solutions is growing fast. The Germany-based core team serves as GFT's International Competence Centre for Industrial Solutions. This enables the company to deliver large-scale and increasingly multinational projects.
Focus on sustainability now expands the established offerings
Well-established platforms sphinx open and weblet form the basis of GFT’s IIoT solutions. With standardised modules, clients can quickly and efficiently access tailored solutions that boost productivity;
- Digital team boards
- Systems that autonomously control production processes in real time
- Energy management solutions to reduce emissions and energy costs in production plants and office buildings or intelligently control charging stations for e-vehicle fleets.
“Managers in manufacturing realise that smart IIoT solutions will be key for them to stay competitive,” says Jens-Thorsten Rauer, member of GFT’s Group Executive Board. “We have the offerings and expertise to support them on that journey, even on a multinational scale. Our clients boost their productivity and are freed up to create new, data driven growth business models.”
Specialists contribute their deep expertise
GFT’s IIoT offerings are rooted in the deep expertise of the specialist firm in-integrierte informationssysteme GmbH, which became part of GFT in January 2020. It has since expanded into an international competence centre dedicated to developing productised solutions. They are in high demand by industry sector clients for long-term, cost-efficient deployment.
