Customer Success Story: LineMetrics
The LineMetrics platform provides easy, pay-as-you-go sensor-based optimization for businesses. It enables plug-and-play monitoring “as a service” for all, anywhere in the world, with no IT complexity, no upfront cost, no project management needed. At the heart of their solution, LineMetrics use InfluxDB Cloud to gather metrics and events from their customers’ sensors, graph the data in their cloud and send information and threshold-based alerts to their mobile app for customers to take appropriate action.
The Challenge: As a startup, LineMetrics had to adapt to market requirements fast. They wanted to meet customer demand for connecting assets and accessing sensor data to become more efficient and offer new digital services. Since only what is measured can be improved, customers wanted a way to continuously monitor their assets without a large investment or IT knowhow. LineMetrics set out to develop a monitoring platform that makes it easy for customers, across industries and in various use cases, to acquire any type of sensor data for real-world assets in real time.
The Result: InfluxDB enabled LineMetrics to provide a sensor-based self-improvement platform to industrial users, delivering “Asset Monitoring As A Service” starting at just 28 euros ($31) with no programming needed. Wherever they are, users can monitor energy consumption in buildings, machine performance, and any other assets. The LineMetrics easy-setup plug-and-play device can connect to any type of sensor. Users can register and re-configure data flow input easily via drag-and-drop editor, get readings to optimize their server settings, and add intelligence to their processes and operations.
