Rental Equipment, Redefined
Denso worked with Mesh to achieve their goal of improving MovinCool® machines’ utilization by their rental fleet customers and generate new revenue by unlocking previously inaccessible data and insights.
Denso’s MovinCool® product line is the world’s leading spot cooling solution. These portable air-handling units have a variety of uses including spot cooling in data centers, keeping a cool environment in VIP tents at outdoor sporting events, and, of course, coming to the rescue when a central AC system breaks. In general, MovinCool® units are sold by Denso to networks of dealers that lease them out to the end user on an as-needed basis.
As the IoT digital revolution began to take shape, MovinCool® product owners realized that a connected machine would enable Denso to offer more value-added services to their dealer networks. Denso was working closely with Sprint who recommended that they reach out to Mesh Systems to build their next generation product line.
Over the next few months, Mesh developed a solution that could answer MovinCool®’s most important telematics questions: Where is the machine? Is it on and properly functioning? Does the water tank need to be emptied? Has the machine fallen over? And much more!
Insight Into Location, Usage Data, and Performance Metrics
Mesh Systems developed a two-part hardware solution that allowed Denso to answer their telematics questions, one which uses current analysis to report on internal MovinCool® circuitry, the other which ascertains GPS location and backhauls the data to the cloud on the Sprint Cat-1 network.
The connected MovinCool® set the stage for a new subscription-based product to offer better service to Denso’s customers.
