News: MOVUS Launches Easy Monitoring Offer to Help Manufacturers Avoid Downtime Over Summer and Christmas

~ launches Industry 4.0 offer to help manufacturers respond to production and maintenance issues in a timely manner ~

Brisbane, October 29, 2018 - Manufacturers looking to keep normal services up and running over Christmas and summer can do so more easily and affordably, thanks to MOVUS, the provider of FitMachine, a simple-to-use and cost-effective solution for equipment monitoring.


Fulfilling back orders and preventing critical equipment failures is a constant battle for Australian manufacturers, notably during November, December and January with more extreme weather and fewer staff on hand against the backdrop of a peak demand for products, especially for food and beverage companies.


Consequently, MOVUS has launched “Industry 4.0 Made Easy” an offer to remove the headache for manufacturers for just $85 AUD per machine per month allowing customers to deploy predictive maintenance in a cost-effective way.


FitMachine is a condition-based maintenance solution that detects machine failures in advance using artificial intelligence and machine learning. The solution comprises an industrial sensor, industrial gateway, mobile application, analytics and trending dashboards, and artificial intelligence engine. The system automatically monitors equipment 24x7 and learns what the normal operation of machinery is to detect any abnormalities and alert the organisation before failures occur. The insights  provided are machine health, degradation, utilisation, energy consumption and more.


Once a MOVUS installer is onsite, the units can be installed in under five minutes each, with no need for shutdowns, cutting or drilling. The installer will also train your team to install more sensors, should they be required.


The pack contains everything manufacturers need to get started on their Industry 4.0 journey. For just $85 AUD per machine per month, MOVUS Industry 4.0 Made Easy offers:

  • 10 FitMachine sensors
  • 1 FitMachine Gateway
  • The MOVUS fully-featured Dashboard, customised with your company logo, with machine trending and alerts via email and SMS
  • Installation and training are fully included at your plant/factory/site
  • Access to online help, training guides and support from the friendly MOVUS team

“This offer is about making life easy for manufacturers during a seasonal time that is hallmarked by high product demand, staff shortages and weather extremes impacting equipment. We’re giving people access to the latest technology but in a really easy, low-risk way. It's a cost effective solution, that’s rapidly deployed, easy to use and easy to adopt,” said Brad Parsons, Founder and CEO of MOVUS.
