The RESTful Ei3 API is aimed at bringing its machine to machine communications to manufacturers looking to remotely control their machines, maximize efficiency, save energy, and cut back on green house gasses.
By gathering data about a clients machine through constant monitoring, uploading it to its cloud, Ei3 then takes that data and puts it up against performance metrics that allows clients to see problems and identify opportunities. Ei3's solutions fall into four categories:
- Remote service that controls and records connections made by in-house service teams.
- Remote monitoring based on Six-Sigma and lean manufacturing.
- Sustainability focus on everything from water usage to greenhouse gas emissions and electricity use.
