Challenges faced by industries:

Retail sector: The retail industry faces challenges in maintaining the integrity of cold and heat chains, risking product spoilage and quality degradation. Sense It Technologies’ sensors offer real-time monitoring and data-driven insights, enabling retailers to proactively manage temperature conditions, minimise risks and optimise supply chain efficiency.

Food and beverage industry: Quality control, compliance with regulations and supply chain traceability are paramount in the food and beverage sector. Monitoring temperature, humidity and other environmental factors is essential for preserving product integrity.

Pharmaceuticals: Pharmaceuticals require stringent monitoring of environmental conditions to ensure product efficacy and regulatory compliance. Any deviation in temperature or humidity can compromise the quality and safety of pharmaceutical products.

Cold storage: Maintaining optimal temperature and humidity levels in cold storage facilities is critical for preserving perishable goods. Even minor fluctuations can lead to spoilage and significant financial losses.

Wineries and breweries: Temperature, humidity and light exposure significantly impact the quality of wines and beers. Precise monitoring is essential throughout the production and storage processes to maintain product consistency and flavour profiles.

Agriculture: In agriculture, factors such as soil moisture, temperature and weather conditions directly influence crop yields and quality. Access to real-time data enables farmers to make informed decisions regarding irrigation, fertilisation and pest control.
