Since our start in 2014, IXON has rapidly grown into a major international player in the industrial sector. We’ve made promises, and delivered on them. In doing so, we've created trust. With partners, with customers, with our employees. Keeping machines running, that's why we do it. A machine builder’s job used to be done after delivering the machine. Nowadays, they remain involved throughout its entire lifespan. All to ensure that the machine runs as optimally as possible. Our activities focus on aiding in the 3 main pain points of the modern and innovative machine builder:
● Minimising lost production time by solving > 60% of failures remotely to save time and improve customer satisfaction;
● Improving machine quality, construction and uptime with data analysis and machine learning;
● Creating new revenue streams and higher customer loyalty by enabling new business models.
But how? By connecting the machines to the cloud, in a platform in which all machine service, maintenance and data analysis is managed. With the IXON Cloud platform and supporting hardware, we deliver the technology, so the machine builder can focus on what they do best: collaborate with clients, provide service, and share insights.
