Swift Sensors' Cloud-based Wireless Sensor System
Swift Sensors, an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) company, provides a cloud-based wireless sensor system for industrial and commercial applications. The company's products are designed to replace manual processes and disparate sensors with a unified sensor system built to provide real-time actionable data and improve business process efficiency and reliability. Swift Sensors' offerings are designed to monitor temperature, humidity, vibration, motion, activity, location, electric voltage and current levels, and the firm recently released a cloud-based wireless sensor system, following 18 months of development and deployment with various customers, including Kraft Heinz Co., Sysco and McDonald's.

"Businesses are frequently limited in their ability to efficiently monitor critical equipment and processes because of expensive, highly manual traditional systems. Swift Sensors extends the reach and efficiency of sensor monitoring, while offering new opportunities to enhance performance using analytics and optimization," said Sam Cece, Swift Sensors' CEO, in a prepared statement. "Our low-cost, instant deployment allows businesses to rapidly adapt to regulatory compliance initiatives and commence predictive maintenance programs."

"We deployed hundreds of wireless sensors from Swift Sensors to upgrade our existing sensors and automate our manual monitoring processes," said William Thacker, Kraft Heinz Co.'s engineering supervisor, in the prepared statement. "My team now focuses their time on important daily tasks rather than manually checking temperatures or equipment status. We've saved hundreds of hours in productivity over the past year and improved our operations."

Swift Sensors' cloud-based wireless sensor system includes customizable real-time monitoring, analytics and alerts, to improve business efficiency and reliability by making actionable data and analytics globally accessible. Industrial, commercial and service businesses can integrate the scalable sensor system with their own sensor data across multiple areas. Sample sectors include food chain, transportation, restaurants, industrial, IT data centers, research and development, and power.

The solution is available immediately. Individual sensor and bridge appliance pricing starts at $79 and $349, respectively, with a monthly cloud subscription fee for access to Swift Sensors' dashboard by an unlimited number of users.
