The next wave of connectivity is increasingly referred to as the “Internet of Things”. With the Industrial Internet, we see this same concept at work in the field of material handling, with our ways of working and those of our customers changing significantly as a result.
By making machines intelligent and aware of their condition, and networking them to create real-time visibility, we can offer our customers unique products and services that differentiate us from our competitors and warrant a price premium.
Under the oneKONECRANES initiative, we are streamlining our ways of working and modernizing our information systems to boost productivity and lower our cost levels. We are now more connected as an organization.
The Industrial Internet is our response to what we see as the inevitable next phase of digitalization in material handling.
The advent of machines becoming intelligent and aware of their own condition is enabling completely new service concepts for enhancing safety and productivity.
The Industrial Internet will be an important strategic initiative for us for many years to come. As well as new technologies, a paradigm shift of this kind demands many new competences across the board.
Konecranes has an extensive global presence, with offices in 48 countries and encompassing both established and developing economies. To build long-term customer relationships, Konecranes continuously develops its understanding of these varied markets.
Different needs exist in every market area. Detailed analysis of customer requirements has informed our decision to categorize our products and services into “advanced” and “standard” segments.
We target the advanced and standard segments with diverse capabilities which nevertheless share our stringent quality principles. While we may change the specifications and features of our products to suit a customer’s needs and budget, we never compromise on safety or quality. We call this revised approach our Segment-based Offering.
