Industrial Manufacturing

AppDirect helps industrial manufacturing companies overcome the complexities of delivering, managing, and monetizing apps and services for their hardware and customers.

Challenge

With the evolution of M2M technology, the industrial manufacturing market is undergoing a digital transformation, with widespread connectivity opening a massive opportunity to drive new business and refined internal processes. Traditionally, industrial and enterprise businesses have relied on initial product purchasing with little to no follow-on purchases. Achieving digital transformation of business processes now requires generating follow-on business with software and services while enacting new and innovative business models.

Solution

AppDirect provides a comprehensive solution bundle, AppDevices, that drives continuous sales of software and subscriptions long after product purchase. It enables OEMs in the industrial IoT market to deliver ever-changing services and features on any device or hardware, without the typical long deployment cycles. The AppDevices solution set also offers the ability to integrate third-party partners easily, staying cost effective while still interoperable with industry standards.

"AppDirect has been providing the flexible platform, tools, and services necessary for BASE to deliver a profitable mobile content and app marketplace for their content partners and consumers.”
