OMNICOMM AND JAZZ LAUNCH GENSET AND FUEL STORAGE MONITORING SOLUTION IN PAKISTAN
The project is an initiative of Jazz Business, which has the largest and most comprehensive portfolio of B2B ICT services in Pakistan. Working with OMNICOMM’s local partner Xtreme Tracking Solutions, Jazz Business will provide customers with OMNICOMM’s turnkey, best-in-class integrated solution for managing the fuel consumption of diesel generator sets (gensets) and monitoring fuel storage units such as bowsers and underground tanks.
In Pakistan, businesses experience a staggering 33.8% loss in sales value annually because of rolling blackouts (World Atlas, 2017) and many businesses maintain gensets and fuel storage tanks as a critical part of their infrastructure. Businesses are increasingly investing in sophisticated remote solutions to monitor fuel usage, control generators in inaccessible locations and optimize efficiency.
“OMNICOMM’s solution automates the monitoring of fuel consumption and multiple other important parameters of IoT devices,” says Jens Strohschneider, Commercial Director for International Markets, OMNICOMM. “It enables efficient remote tank management, helping machine operators to reduce operational costs.”
“We are happy to join hands with Jazz as a strategic partner and are proud to have successfully completed two pilot projects despite the challenges of lockdown,” he continues. “Our joint go-to-market initiatives will bring value-added services to enterprise customers in Pakistan, helping them to minimize environmental impacts and achieve better energy efficiency.”
OMNICOMM’s solution includes the industry’s most reliable capacitive fuel-level sensors, guaranteeing 99.5% accuracy, and OMNICOMM terminals. Thanks to OMNICOMM’s hardware and other external sensors, key parameters are monitored in real time and data is transmitted to a cloud-based online platform.
Syed Ali Naseer, Chief Business Officer, Jazz says, “We realize that power generation is a high-end operating cost for most businesses. Our partnership with OMNICOMM aims to empower businesses to better monitor and analyze fuel efficiencies in their fleet or machinery in order to better control costs.”
