Monitoring and controlling pumps conveniently and seamlessly via app - Wilo and Zühlke make it possible.
Smart pump system solutions
Planning, configuring and monitoring pump systems costs installers and operators a lot of time and money. The solution: The pumps must be smart. To do this, they need a cloud connection and an app function, including remote control and maintenance. Zühlke supplied not only the app function for Wilo but also the back end and developed parts of the Gateway software.
From pump manufacturer to solution provider and digital pioneer
Wilo is the world leader in pump technology and is focusing massively on the subject of digitalisation. In addition to production, the digitisation strategy also covers organisation, products and new business models. Agile methods allow the team to implement changes from strategy updates. For example, Zühlke develops the app function, back end and parts of the gateway software from the initial idea and also takes over the operation of the solution after the go-live - while Wilo advances from a pump manufacturer to a solution provider and digital pioneer of an entire industry.
New features inspire customers and partners
Working together pays off: At the world's leading trade fair ISH 2019, the new features will inspire customers and partners. For example, a single app allows remote maintenance and seamless monitoring of all pumps and provides valuable insights thanks to consolidated pump data. Wilo is thus consolidating its position as technology leader and digital pioneer.
