Launch of new IoT solutions
365 Agile is pleased to announce the launch of three new Internet of Things ("IoT") based solutions designed specifically for the Social Housing and Care & Support sectors.
The first solution, 365 Agile's 'Smart Heating Control' enables households to have access to cutting edge technology to control the heating in their homes and to gain greater visibility and control on their use of energy from a smart phone or tablet. The smart heating control unit is designed to be easily retro-fitted in just a few minutes by replacing existing standard controllers. The smart unit also provides predictive maintenance alerts to report when a boiler is not working properly and requires maintenance allowing customers to choose a convenient time for preventative maintenance rather than having to wait until the heating system fails. The advanced option also includes full zonal control using thermostatic radiator valves which are easily fitted to existing radiators. The technology should allow users to achieve savings on energy expenditure and will enable Social Housing organisations to significantly reduce operation maintenance costs whilst improving customer service.
The second solution, the Assisted Living suite, is designed to provide advanced levels of care and support to vulnerable customers through the use of 365 Agile's range of smart sensors. The solution will allow non-invasive monitoring of customer behaviour and will provide alerts and tasks in the event that someone needs assistance. The sensors stream real-time data back to the 365 Agile platform and information can be shared with family members as well as care providers. 365 Agile has also been collaborating with Tunstall Healthcare, a leading provider of healthcare solutions, to provide cutting edge solutions to customers that enhance service and provide improved levels of care and support.
The third solution is focused on security with 365 Agile's smart sensors being installed to deliver a low-cost home security pack which will monitor movement, temperature and doors and windows and provide alerts to the customer.
365 Agile already has over 50,000 downloads across the UK and Europe and these new solutions provide a revolutionary new way of delivering services to the Social Housing and Care & Support sectors. 365 Agile has been working closely with Microsoft and has architected the solutions based on the Microsoft Azure stack. The solutions mark the first of a range of 'shrink-wrapped' solutions from 365 Agile that will reduce cost, improve customer service and streamline processes. The new solutions will be available to the Social Housing sector through technology business partner Castleton Technology.
365 Agile is launching the solutions at Microsoft's Future Decoded 2015 at ExCeL London on 10th &11th November.
Jonathan Holyhead, CEO of 365Agile commented:
"365Agile's platform creates a powerful combination that will dramatically transform service delivery. The initial set of smart solutions are being rolled out to the Social Housing and Care & Support sectors and will enable organisations to reduce cost, improve customer service and streamline processes. We have worked closely with Microsoft in the UK and have leveraged the power and scale of Azure with their team to create truly unique solutions that will deliver real benefits and positive change to both organisations and tenants."
