As well as technological solutions, we offer consultancy and training services to respond to all the needs of our customers.
Under canias4.0 Technologies trademark, we offer several innovative software and hardware solutions particularly including IoT, big data, AI (artificial intelligence), cloud solutions, our own iasDB database, our business intelligence solution caniasIQ and e-government integrations as well as our corporate resource planning solution, caniasERP. Furthermore, we have our own software development platform, TROIA. We have aimed to offer the entire technology required by our customers, within a single source and we have succeeded. Customers who get familiar with the holistic solutions of canias4.0, both gain time in integration, implementation and adaptation process and save a substantial amount of money.
In a nutshell, canias4.0 technologies provide customers with advantages including freedom of movement, speed, flexibility, customization, upgradability, and low cost. We offer comprehensive software and hardware solutions, which is the most distinctive feature differing us from our competitors. But, how? IAS is a future-oriented company. We produce projects considering not only the current but also the future needs of our customers. Via our software development platform and TROIA, which we offer to our customers with an open-source code, our own database iasDB, user-friendly interface and new licensing model, we carry out our development and improvement works in a fast and simple way. Besides, we provide our customers with flexible and fully integrated software and hardware solutions. Thanks to the technologies we offer within canias4.0, our customers may find a solution to all the needs in their work processes, using a single software and hardware. In this way, they won't need third party software, external firms, or hardware products. This brings a great advantage to our customers in terms of investment. In addition, our new licensing model has been designed to allow our customers gain highest efficiency with lower budgets.
canias 4.0 IoT solution is a platform that will enable data collection, data interpretation and producing meaningful insights from the data collected. As for reporting, its holistic structure allows the system to automatize all ERP modules related with production management systems. Besides, it allows the work centers in the field of production to become a direct extension of caniasERP. In machine and automation line investments made in different times, it is rather difficult to design a common communication language for devices with different communication protocols due to technological differences. Indeed, this is the biggest challenge faced during collecting data from automation systems. Our canias4.0 IoT Gateway software has the capability to directly interact with the most common communication protocols in the market that offer a two-way connection between ERP servers and control units, sensors and smart devices. Hence, it is a communication technology we can name as protocol-independent. IoT Gateway production monitors analyzes, and visualizes, in real-time, data such as production data, resource consumption and environmental values. When pre-defined rules-based events occur, the data monitored can directly trigger caniasERP functions and can be written on ERP charts. The system does not require any third-party integration here. If the automation units available on the machines are closed to data transmission or if the automation infrastructure is insufficient, real-time data is collected by IoT BOX IO and Touch IO devices that are entirely designed with canias4.0 to meet the most common customer needs.
With IoT Box IO, you can connect your censors, relays, and data sources directly to the box, read data from your devices or adjust data due to various inlets and ports. IoT Box IO is a touch-screened member of canias4.0 IoT Box family. A small, low-cost and underpowered computer with a Linux-based operation system can run canias4.0 client and other necessary applications like a web browser, PDF viewer and Office applications. Just like IoT Box IO, it has an IO module that allows for the communication of other devices by using digital and analog signals. With the IO module available in IoT Box Touch IO and IoT Box IO, various digital and analog communication options are added to the industry standard network communication protocols (OPC, OPC/UA, MT Connect, MQTT, Siemens S7, MODBUS TCP etc.). With IoT Box Touch IO, a single, compact, yet powerful device will be sufficient to have all the functions required for data communication, ERP integration and operation panel.
We have customers carrying on business in different industries from all over the world. Our mission is to realize different needs of our customers in order to make a positive contribution to them. It is quite valuable both for our vision and for the development of the industry that the companies we cooperate with, are also conscious about digital transformation. Companies consider IT investments to be high-cost, risky and complicated. Given that ERP software is not sufficient on its own today and should be integrated with innovations like automation, big data, and cloud, we can say that the budget and the confusion related to these investments increase, too. We offer companies all the solutions they need under a single roof and at affordable prices in order to make things easier for them in terms of IT investments and we provide them with great advantages. As you have already mentioned, we mostly work with manufacturing companies and with a single investment, our customers are able to have the necessary solutions; thus, they don't need to refer to any third company. In this way, a cheaper and smoother project process is achieved. Positive feedbacks are received faster inefficient projects. We hear from our customers that, within a time period as short as one year following their canias4.0 investment, their efficiency has improved, they manage stock, production, and quality control processes faster with minimum number of mistakes, they have saved time to produce new projects and above all, they have gained a higher profit than they have invested.
We have recently focused on issues like IoT, machine learning and big data, which are commonly associated with Industry 4.0. Indeed, we have been working on these issues for years. Despite the pandemic, we have achieved successful projects particularly in the field of IoT in 2020. We have continued our studies in 2021 to increase the scope and number of these projects. In the meantime, we make projections about future innovations awaiting us. We lead our projects considering concepts such as twin machines or factories. One of our main goals in developing iasDB was to acquire a freedom of movement in our studies on artificial intelligence, machine learning or big data etc. We have already started to benefit from its advantage. You will frequently hear about our projects in these fields in the forthcoming days.
