Aeris Communications Launches Internet of Things Solution for the Social Sector
In a move designed to promote the adoption of Internet of Things across sectors, leading IoT platform and solutions provider Aeris Communications has announced the launch of an exclusive solution developed for the social/not for profit sector.
The first of its kind IoT solution for the not for profit sector offers a range of benefits to stakeholders connected with NGOs and similar organisations. Among other benefits it helps promote efficiency, operational transparency and better engagement between all stakeholders at all times. It provides aid from a single source including disaster relief and reconstruction support to long-term development cooperation projects with local partner organisations.
The launch customer for this solution is Welthungerhilfe, one of Germany's biggest private organisations for development and humanitarian aid, which is working on water conservation in India.
“At Aeris, we have always worked towards broadening the spectrum of IoT adopters. IoT will be able live up to its potential only if it moves closer to mass adoption. Many social enterprises have already embraced technology to further their development agenda and with this solution, they will be able to use Internet of Things as well. This will not just help social enterprises but also the beneficiaries they work with,” said Dr. Rishi Bhatnagar, President, Aeris India.
The solution has been developed in association with Aeris’ solution partner Manacle. A variant of this solution is already powering enterprises ranging from large FMCG majors, logistics, telecom and manufacturing firms. With the availability of this solution, social enterprises will be able to leverage Internet of Things to achieve their goals around sales, order and cash management.
