You know that analogue communications technologies have been superseded by digital – but do you know what the latest digital innovations could mean for your business in practice?
Upgrading from analogue to digital radio can deliver a huge range of tangible business benefits including increased functionality and reliability, greater ease of management and the ability to deploy rich data applications, which drive innovation and efficiency.
However, digital transformation is not merely about updating your network – it is also about updating your assets. Digital communications infrastructures enable you to harness data from across your organisation, generating greater visibility than ever before into your assets, and enabling you to make smarter business decisions.
Achieving true business transformation with this data depends on three key fundamentals:
- The speed between point-of-data-acquisition and point-of-use – the earlier that data can be acquired in a process, the more valuable its use. This requires appropriate digital devices and networks – since affini takes a vendor-agnostic approach, and works with a wide range of partners, we are best-placed to advise on how this should work in your organisation.
- The effort required to collect and collate the data. Digital devices and networks reduce the manual intervention required to capture data, enabling greater automation, greater business intelligence and tangible business insights.
- Capturing sufficient data to enable quality decisions and to identify trends and opportunities – this means that your devices and networks need to be supported with appropriate analytics engines and data management solutions.
affini’s rich heritage in digital communications projects across a wide range of industries, and our vendor-agnostic approach, means that we are perfectly positioned to help you drive tangible transformation.
We help organisations identify the information required to achieve transformational improvements. This can include metrics such as driver behavior, customer patterns, vehicle failures and failure prediction, passenger flows by location and time of day. This data contributes to decisions for improvements where fleets are a key aspect of operations.
We enable organisations to capture quality data through the wireless connection of industrial devices including ticket machines, security locks/access, RFID readers, wearables, vehicles, telemetry and SCADA devices.
By ensuring access to quality data, we are able to help identify trends and opportunities for substantial operational improvements.
