Manufacturers of IBCs, maintenance companies, users and their customers have limited information about where the IBCs are and when cleaning is required. This results in unnecessarily long downtimes and an inefficient, expensive process.
Our service portal for IBC offers many optimization approaches between the process steps:
We accompany you step by step in the development of new service processes and optimized resource planning.
Purchase price, cleaning costs, turnaround rate: Is it worth converting to IoT capability?
Could the fleet size of your IBC even be reduced? Work it out! Enter your figures and do the profitability analysis!
Note: If you reduce your fleet size, your fixed assets (without depreciation) can be reduced accordingly.
For example, the container builder passes the IBC on to a producer of paints who fills the container.
However, the benefit for the manufacturer is not yet exhausted with the one-off transaction. By renting with the help of the service portal, further turnover can be generated with a container pool.
The filled container is then passed on to the paint processing company. The portal makes it easier to address various customers and always ensures that facts form the basis for discussion, not speculation.
The customer can also intervene in the process at the push of a button if the need arises. Examples can be an accident, but also if the container has been emptied earlier than the planned turnover.
As soon as the contents of the container have been used up, a maintenance company carries out repairs and cleaning. Now the IBC can be refilled.
The object tracking of the IBC keeps all companies in the process in full control. This allows them to plan their resources better.
With the help of IBC.DIGITAL you can find the exact location of all your IBCs, monitor the status and current fill levels of each IBC, and view related operational information — all data can be called up securely in the associated service portal.
Most important features of the tracking solution at a glance:
Worldwide location tracking of the IBC
Monitor the fill level of the IBC
Status of the IBC (folded or not)
Monitoring of operational conditions including real-time alarms
Connection to the ERP
High and proven reliability
Certified and managed cybersecurity from IBC to cloud
Battery life of up to 7 years
Scalability up to 106 IBC
Low acquisition and operating costs
Business processes can be configured flexibly so that each company can only see one specific area. The end customer, for example, will only be able to see the containers that are in circulation.
The service portal also stores additional information. Was there glue, paint or oil in the IBC? It is important to know this, for example, before refilling, for the service provider before cleaning, or also for rescue teams in the event of accidents.
With the help of histories per container, it is also possible to trace which alarms (notes) were associated with this container and with which customers and service partners it was located.
Simply make a non-binding inquiry. We will get back to you as soon as possible. In this conversation we will find out together which solutions are best suited for your company.
