Today’s technology is ever evolving. Many organizations are overwhelmed by the constant need to maintain, monitor, and upkeep their office network and equipment — more so if their workforce is dispersed in various locations.
Hindrances to Operational Efficiency
One of the primary goals for any organization is to provide a seamless experience for both their workforce and their customers. But oftentimes, it is hindered by operational inefficiencies such as the following:
- Disparate systems
- Limited control over assets
- Unexpected machine downtime/breakdown
- Inefficient asset performance tracking
- Absence of sophisticated reporting system
- Issues such as equipment downtime mean lost revenue for your organization. IT downtime can mean up to $700 billion in lost revenue each year. For organizations to remain competitive, they must look for ways to maximize their equipment, assure that their assets stay online, and prepare for unexpected failures.
Remote Monitoring equals Asset Productivity
Remote monitoring solutions enable organizations to monitor and track their assets remotely so they can gain rich insights into their equipment’s health and utilization. Moreover, with remote monitoring they can analyze problems and abnormal situations and identify ways to improve and optimize their operations without traveling to various sites of operations. Here are some of the ways that remote monitoring can increase asset productivity:
1. Reduce downtime
With remote monitoring, downtime can be reduced both for the equipment and the workforce. Alerts can be set to trigger when a problem starts, this way issues can be resolved before they develop into a full-blown crisis.
2. Manage the problem anywhere
The beauty of remote monitoring is that your IT or service provider can extend support and troubleshoot the problem without going out to the field or the area of concern. This is an effective solution for organizations with facilities in distant or rural areas.
3. Track system health
Collecting system statistics is critical for gaining rich insights into equipment health and utilization. By identifying trends from the data collected over time, your organization can address potential problems and develop solutions to prevent it from impacting your business workflow.
4. Provide remote support and updates
Your service provider can monitor and provide equipment updates such as firmware upgrades remotely. This also means repairs can be scheduled ahead of time and prevent sudden equipment breakdowns.
Remote monitoring is an effective solution to extend the life of your assets and improve its productivity and safety.
