SmartSense IIoT®

SmartSense IIoT® from PHI DATA is a comprehensive solution for managing and tracking your valuable assets, from goods and equipment to transportation equipment and personnel. This easy-to-use, yet advanced platform provides real-time visibility via various wireless communication protocols such as NB-IoT, Sigfox, 4G and Wi-Fi. Deployable in a wide range of industries, the system provides identification, location and condition monitoring (such as temperature) of your assets.

The platform is composed of four modular building blocks, making it easily adaptable to specific business needs. Whether you want to use RFID for automation at loading and unloading docks, need Bluetooth tags for indoor localization of warehouse equipment, or GPS/NB-IoT tracking for containers and trailers, SmartSense IIoT® provides a flexible, end-to-end solution.

As an independent platform and IoT building block, PHI DATA offers not only the technology but also expert advice for your specific situation. The integrated system means you don’t get caught up in multiple packages or data scattered across different systems. Thus, SmartSense IIoT® provides a seamless and customized solution for your asset management and tracking.

Modular platform


Labelling, tagging and auto-ID

Give all your assets a unique license plate via a label, tag or tracker. Make alle your assets unique, identifiable, recognizable and scannable. Print your owns labels. Barcodes, QR codes, RFID tags. Handhelds and mobile terminals. Scan multiple items at once and from distance. Count thousands of assets with one RFID gun.


Warehouse, stocks and asset management

Digitize your equipment, components and materials. Make a digital twin of your warehouses, depots and zones. Search for an asset, scan for inventory, transfer assets, register maintenance and inspections, compare and detect anomalies. Digitize your flows in your warehouse: from receiving to put away goods to picking to transfers to shipping to deliveries.


Inventory automation

Fully automated inventory in multiple locations. Know in real-time which assets dwell in which zones, warehouses, yards and depots. Set up KPI’s and receive automated alerts when low or high on stock. Avoid shortages delaying your processes. Pinpoint the exact location of an asset even while in transit or at your suppliers or subcontractors. Complete visibility of where an asset is in your supply chain.


Track & trace

Track anything, anywhere. Raw materials, parts and assets. From high value assets like trailers and containers to rental equipment like scissor lifts, excavators and mobile toilets. Pinpoint returnable transport packaging like boxes, metal racks, pallets. Even keys are trackable. Consult historic location, journeys and travel patterns of your fleet. Follow hundreds of assets as they move from site to site. Protect your assets from theft and find them back when lost.


Utilization monitoring

Detailed insight into the utilization of each asset. Monitor the metrics that impact your business like duration of use, distance travelled, number of trips made or how often a container has been emptied. Extract data for each individual asset or for your total fleet. Identify under or overperforming assets. Define and visualize your own KPI’s.


Process flow management

Map your production stages and process flows. Create a digital twin of your desired asset flows and compare with real flows. Detect anomalies and manage by exception. Measure rotation, cycles and retention times and intervene where necessary. Predict delays in your supply chain. Detect bottlenecks.


Status and condition monitoring

Track temperature and humidity of your goods in assets like refrigerated containers or cool boxes. View the orientation states of your waste containers and see if they have been emptied or not. Monitor if returnable packaging has been opened. See if the door of a trailer or container has been opened. Additional sensors provide the desired intelligence to manage quality and control the condition of perishable goods.



Expand the lifetime of your assets by switching from a reactive to a proactive maintenance model. Create maintenance programs based on actual usage like kilometers driven, number of times used or total usage duration. Ensure the maintenance planning is respected. Record in the field or on the floor functional and cosmetic damage of your assets. Create alerts for timely maintenance and inspection actions.


Monitoring of production cycle

Create a digital twin of your factory or shop floor and its different zones. Set up stages in your production process and see how assets move and flow between these zones of interest. Predict delays and measure your production against deadlines. Set up a digital multi-stage environment equal to your actual production. Add multiple factories, warehouses, suppliers and subcontractors.


Performance management & WIP optimization

Ensure the performance of your operations and different production stages. Make every step in your supply chain and production transparent. Produce more with less, faster. Reduce your work in progress time with real-time visibility of your shop floor operations. Make sure your stocks and supplies are optimized for your production process.


Quality compliance

Monitor expiry dates of your products and raw materials. Generate notifications before treatment delays are over. Manage cleaning, disinfection and washing of tanks and containers. Make optimal use of your asset fleet which consists of different volumes, different contents (powder, liquids, solids), weights, sizes. Import sensor data in the platform or add forms and information directly via the app.


Information declaration, tasks and collaboration

Share relevant information amongst your shop floor staff. Real-time visualization of jobs in progress. Beam KPI’s and production statistics in your plants. Implement real-time scheduling and communication systems to prioritize tasks. Alert operators in case of delays, discrepancies or anomalies. Inform operators about progression, tasks status and completion. Digitize your work orders and MRO’s.
