Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) and its Etherios division said that OEM Technology Solutions will use Device Cloud by Etherios to further its offerings in preventative customer service and condition-based monitoring on rail systems throughout the world.
OEM Technology Solutions equipment powers over 20,000 systems in rail cars in 20 countries. The company´s customers, major rail operators, are often faced with rail car downtime, which leads to an increase in costs and reduction in revenue. By implementing a connected rail solution, OEM Technology Solutions provides its customers with a smarter way to decrease downtime due to unplanned maintenance. Device Cloud by Etherios, a platform-as-a-service that provides two-way communication between any device and the cloud, allows products to proactively communicate issues via the Web without the need for human intervention. This intelligence enables companies to move to a preventative-based service model that drives down operational costs and increases top-line revenue as asset uptime increases.
