Carpigiani extends its agreement with IoT solutions provider Telenor Connexion for another three years as the company plans to scale its remote monitoring solution globally.
The Italian-based company manufactures over 10,000 ice cream machines per year of which the majority are being exported around the world. Customers span from small ice cream shops to large global fast-food brands.
Telenor Connexion has developed and delivered an Internet of Things (IoT) solution to Carpigiani, since 2010. With the managed connectivity solution for remote monitoring, Carpigiani can offer its customers a connected after-sales service system based on actual usage. As a result, customers benefit from optimized maintenance and operations.
“Global capacity, flexibility and price were decisive factors when we first selected an IoT partner and Telenor Connexion came out on top in all of the three areas”, says Giovanni Virgilli, IoT Solutions Manager at Carpigiani.
“As we are now planning to scale our solution, Telenor Connexion’s global offering and 400 partner networks will ensure a smooth expansion.“
“We are very proud to support Carpigiani as they continue to evolve their innovative and smart connected services on a global scale. Carpigiani is a great example of a traditional company using the opportunities IoT brings to differentiate themselves and stay ahead of the competition.“ says Mats Lundquist, CEO at Telenor Connexion.
Carpigiani is part of the Ali Group, one of the largest global leaders in the foodservice equipment industry.
