KONE & Wapice: Intelligent services to support elevator maintenance

Wapice has participated in the development of the intelligent KONE 24/7 Connect service which digitises the predictive maintenance of elevators. This intelligent maintenance service helps customers detect malfunctions even before they cause problems to elevator users. The service ensures smooth and trouble-free operation of the equipment and monitors critical variables worldwide 24 hours a day.

KONE was looking for a solution to enable more efficient maintenance in their global elevator service network. This solution provides an excellent foundation.
