Ecosoft digital transformation through Internet of Things (IoT) and Microsoft Dynamics NAV

  • Is data the ‘smart’ way to reinvent the water treatment industry?
    The world evolves, so does Ecosoft – as it digitally transforms itself to win new business via the Internet of Things (IoT). A move utilizing a powerful analytics platform that is helping itself and its trusted partner network.

  • Ecosoft is an international manufacturer of filters for water purification established back in 1991 in Ukraine. One the world’s five producers that provide the full range of products, from pitcher filters to industrial reverse osmosis systems.

    Situation

    Kyiv-headquartered Ecosoft is one of the world’s leading producers of water treatment equipment and is one of only five full range suppliers of purification solutions from domestic and office to full industrial application. With important German and Belgian subsidiaries, the company has a presence in over 50 countries through its extensive partner network.

    So how do you innovate in high quality water supply?

    Solution

    The answer lies in the company’s intriguing move to apply the latest technology to improve not just the core product, but the way that product is distributed and offered to its marketplace.

    “Selling fresh water is potentially very profitable and an attractive business to be in, if you get it right. The innovation we offer is to streamline how our water is delivered to customers.”

    Key to that business process improvement in Ecosoft’s logistics is a full, in-depth understanding of where its products are, day or night – as well as how they are being used. That information can be used to deliver data-driven business decisions.

    Real-time, IoT-delivered insight

    Ecosoft has achieved this with a combination of Azure-hosted Microsoft’s Business Intelligence and Enterprise Resource Planning technologies – Power BI and Dynamics NAV. This works on data provided by an IoT network of sensors deployed in its products.

    “We needed to know where to place our dispensers for maximum usage, as well as be able to work out how our business was doing at a macro level.”

    Result

    In bottom line terms, that translates to 70% sales growth in the first years of IoT and a 30% reversal in dropping unit sales. Thanks to the new system company increased the number of water dispensers in Ecosoft’s network and partner network by 80% and has saved at least $20,000 in IT costs by moving to Azure.

    “Ecosoft is a great example that every company is an IT company. Microsoft Dynamics 365 NAV is not just an ERP. Together with IoT and PowerBI technologies it becomes a real intelligent system to manage business.”
