Business challenge
Can you improve our worldwide service? For this we’ve noticed different elements within Servitization which switch between internal and external processes, also known as the Internet of Everything (IoE). Let’s connect People on a way that makes more value and is more relevant. Use easy workflows, have fun with data and generate value that is driven by your own people. Align Processes by delivering the right information to the right person or machine, and use the right information from the people of machines at the right moment. Convert Data, from big data into smart data, so decision making becomes easier. Connect Things by physical machines and objects and
that’s how Agrifac products become smart.

Empower your process with smart designs. Scheper has a background in the agriculture world, combined with a deep understanding of customers. Together with the knowledge about maintenance and asset management from the energy sector this forms a unique combination for the next challenges within these sector. Agrifac needs a conceptual thinking approach, that can feed new ideas of farming. Where “pay per hectare” forms a decent opportunity.

How Scheper.Co helped?
We tried to answer the question “What might happen with the technical machine condition in the future?” High-quality maintenance is an important activator in this matter, which needs to be supported by a real-time Machine-to-Machine connection. We made a recommendation about Data warehouse connections. We delivered a software solution that is able to read +300 triggers of each machine. Agrifac receives alerts over all the (+2500) connected machines in time.
