Caverion digitizes proactive maintenance using the Wapice IoT-TICKET® solution. With this solution it is possible to monitor the real conditions of industrial equipment and to anticipate future service and maintenance needs effectively, avoiding unnecessary interruptions in production. The system combines information on all objects and alerts so it saves costs and increases customer satisfaction.

Caverion is one of Europe's leading listed companies offering technical service and maintenance solutions. The company designs, implements, supports and maintains user-friendly and energy-efficient technical solutions for real estate and industry. Caverion's vision is to be the number one choice for customers, employees, partners, and investors in increasingly digitalized environments.

With the increasing digitalization in the industry, Caverion, together with Wapice, has developed a new IoTFlex service concept for proactive maintenance. Based on the Wapice IoT-TICKET® platform, intelligent sensors measure the actual condition of machines and predict possible defects by use of analytics. IoTFlex is the marketing name used by Caverion for the IoT-TICKET® solution offered by Wapice.

We have developed our service to be more intelligent by adding analytics and machine vision solutions to the service concept. With the help of IoT-TICKET®, even new technologies can be introduced at almost routine pace, and the development and maintenance of the service level has been smooth. The focus is on increasing customer value rather than on software.

– In addition to proactive maintenance, our customers also use the system for a variety of measurement needs, such as oil particle measurements, heat transfer failure prediction and various fitness and vibration measurements. Targeting maintenance operations to the actual customer needs will be the basic prerequisite for profitable maintenance. Thanks to a better picture of the situation, the management of economic and environmental risks and occupational safety can also be improved, as risk factors can be detected in real time and thus be prepared in advance - continues Härkönen.

Getting started with IoT-TICKET®, making and maintaining applications is easy. IoT-TICKET® acknowledges that the importance of data analytics is constantly growing and therefore makes it easy to deploy separate analytics servers and includes an easy-to-use internal analysis tool. Adding the analyzed data to the cloud creates a clear competitive advantage for our customers, says Markus Mäkelä, Development Director at Wapice.
