Girbau Selects Sierra Wireless Device-to-Cloud Solution to Transform Laundry Machines

Girbau, a leading manufacturer of industrial laundry equipment, has selected Sierra Wireless’ device-to-cloud IoT solution to enable Sapphire, its new remote monitoring service for commercial laundry machines. Girbau is aiming at transforming its customer service capabilities by deploying IoT applications. The machine data available subsequently enables Girbau to provide preventive maintenance. Customers can maintain their fleet of laundry machines more efficiently and reduce downtime.

Technicians can configure and program Sierra Wireless’ hardware and connectivity services over the air. The AirVantage IoT Platform allows thus Girbau to deploy its Sapphire solution in multiple markets around the world. Sapphire monitors each machine’s production volume, usage and operation. It can also alert users via mobile or web when a machine is functioning abnormally or runs out of detergent.
