Factor-E Analytics – Berlin cloud-based SaaS hardware-software platform for manufacturers
Manufacturers, confronted with rising costs and global competition, must monitor and control their productivity and rationalize their resource consumption. Factor-E Analytics supports them with a cloud-based SaaS hardware-software platform. The young TU Berlin spin-off digitizes and networks equipment of all types and age and automates data collection and analysis. Plug & work hardware, installed within hours, safely communicates data to an analytics platform where productivity and resource efficiency information is extracted in real time simply by analyzing electricity usage. Role-specific, user-configurable dashboards are then generated on the fly. With the first roll-out of the platform at the site of a large industrial partner underway, the newly founded GmbH is already developing and testing the next set of innovative features that focus on intelligent condition monitoring and equipment idling reduction, both rising, high impact topics in the industry. This is Factor-E Analytics.
