An open and integrated solution for remote services

When customers require after-sales service, they expect their problem to be solved with minimum delay. Secure remote access allows machine manufacturers and maintenance providers to provide services remotely, while offering their customers ideal maintenance support.
The Remote Service Manager is just the right system platform for designing efficient remote services. By using state-of-the-art IT security standards, it enables you to support your customers via remote access to their machinery and equipment. You can assist them as issues occur as well as during installation and maintenance. A rapid, reliable, and hassle-free solution, the Remote Service Manager’s open interfaces allow it to be integrated seamlessly into your existing IT system landscape. This means that you can continue working with your existing systems.

Maximum security

A sophisticated security strategy ensures that you can offer your customers remote services that comply with the most stringent security standards.

  • Use of virtual machines: Remote access is established using a virtual machine that is created for each individual service request. This ensures that malicious software cannot infect the machinery, equipment, connected PCs, or mobile terminals. The virtual machine also prevents the theft or misuse of machine data. A further advantage of virtual machines is that your service technicians always have the latest version of relevant software tools available.J13
  • Security zones: Remote access is established across different security zones, each of which requires separate authorization. This state-of-the-art approach prevents unauthorized access to the Remote Service Manager and, as a result, to connected machinery and equipment.
  • Sophisticated authentication management: Your customers remain in charge of their systems and equipment, with permanent control over the times and extent to which remote access is granted. The system platform can be configured in such a way that only the customer can set up connections. In other words, remote access to the machinery and equipment is not possible without the customer’s explicit authorization.

Seamless integration into your business IT and machine environment

The Remote Service Manager is highly flexible in terms of its integration capabilities. To avoid island solutions, it can be integrated seamlessly into your existing business IT landscape. For your employees, the ability to operate the Remote Service Manager using the functionalities of your existing systems – such as ticketing or ERP systems – means that they can quickly adapt to using the Remote Service Manager.

Connecting distributed machinery and equipment is easy and straightforward. A router at the customer’s site handles the connections to your systems. You are free to choose the network technology that suits you best – be it internet, M2M, or ISDN.

How do you benefit from the Remote Service Manager?

Increase the efficiency and quality of your maintenance services. With the Remote Service Manager, you can troubleshoot your customers’ problems at any time and from anywhere. The speed and simplicity with which you are able to handle service requests will help you increase customer satisfaction while optimizing the deployment of resources for maintenance work. Using these same resources, you will be able to serve more customers and offer additional services.
Once the system platform has been implemented, new manufacturing equipment and IT systems can be incorporated at any time. The Remote Service Manager is capable of integrating machines, routers, and systems from different vendors.

Condition monitoring
A secure permanent or cyclic connection allows you to collect data from machinery and equipment. This data can then be supplied to software applications that monitor the status of machines.

Predictive maintenance
Machine data collected by using the condition monitoring function can be analyzed and used to proactively detect errors and possible failures. This, in turn, prevents any unplanned downtime.
