Hydro Systems Launches Cloud-Based IoT Platform
CINCINNATI — October 26, 2018 — Hydro Systems, a manufacturer of chemical proportioning and dispensing systems, recently introduced Hydro Connect, its cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) platform. Hydro Connect aims to give chemical providers and end users increased visibility into their operations to optimize production, reduce costs, and increase customer satisfaction.
“With Hydro Connect, we aim to solve real business problems through a total solutions approach,” said Serge Joris, President and CEO of Hydro Systems. “We pride ourselves on being applications experts, and connectivity is key to enabling value-added services for our customers, all the way from the time of implementation through after-sales support.”
Hydro Connect will be introduced to the industrial laundry market first, with products in facility cleaning not far behind. Built on the Microsoft Azure platform, Hydro Connect populates data generated from the Dositec Central Dosing Systems, currently operating in industrial laundries worldwide. Data transmits from the unit to Hydro Connect using a 3G Cellular Modem and a 250 MB/month data package.
Current Hydro Connect capabilities allow customers and end users to log in and view professional laundry reports in seconds, which may be used for both day-to-day monitoring and monthly management summaries. The system will also offer insight on chemical usage and cost, allowing users to access a snapshot of the chemical cost by formula and providing metered usage reports on chemical products. With the expected release of products geared toward facility cleaning, similar benefits may soon extend to the professional cleaning industry as well.
