Shift with CommonSense,
the Internet of Things (IoT) Application Enablement Platform

Transform you assets into real-time monitorable, controllable digital services integrated to your information systems and your teams.

CommonSense, our IoT platform, includes all necessary software bricks and tools to connect your assets, remotely manage them and create your bespoke IoT application. All of this with a cost and risk lower than intra-organization development, in the design as well as operation phase.

Adopt a strategy of connected objects' management: reduce costs and optimize processes.

Change of paradigm :
What happened ? > What is happening ? > What will happen ?
Responsive > Preventive > Predictive

Application Enablement

We unify the management of heterogeneous objects - and their associated data - and bring them to your CommonSense CLOUD platform. Thanks to the RESTful APIs, your assets can be managed from any M2M services platform, for instance with the OneM2M worldwide standard.
Vertical M2M minimizes the complexity and integration of different IoT/M2M technologies in order to maximize usages and service opportunities.

Manage

Management tools

Those are your tools for operating your IoT/M2M infrastructure: your equipments and network. The web interface integrates all commands for remote management. Moreover all these, commands are available via RESTful APIs which enables you to access them from your own management tools.

Management tools include:

Remote access

Vizualise your equipments' stats, get informed of any incident and event, react quickly and reduce your on-site visits.

Remote updates

Individually or by batch. You can update firmwares to correct bugs, add new functionalities to your equipments...

Multiple accounts and rights

Translate your organization chart through categories and users with customizable access rights. Create accounts for your suppliers and clients to optimize your value chain.

Product/service behavior monitoring

Logs provide you with information and statistics about the status of your equipments, how they are used, when, by whom... This information is a precious insight for your or your client's product or service development.

Business rules engine and alerts

Business rules are one of the main milestones for your application, they translate and answer your concrete business problems and constraints. You can set up business parameters such as thresholds or geofence rules, but also generate functions related to your data such as accumulation, linear functions. You are in control over your data.

Set up alerts related to your business rules. Send them via email or SMS but also through APIs for your web application.

Examples: geofencing, condition-based maintenance, authentication...

geofencing

Business Process Builder for Automation

Trigger automated processes according to business rules and/or events and associate alerts.

Multi-level of accounts and access rights

Collaborate within your organization as well as your partners by granting them access rights (directly on the portal or through APIs). Imagine: users can order, check statistics or a process.

Scenario

"

I have business applications such as ERP and want to manage my equipments/connect objects directly from my own interfaces that were developed internally.
I want to get access to my equipments using APIs.

"

I have business applications but only want to deal with my business withtout caring about the technical details of managing an IoT infrastructure.
I would like to manage my equipements through the management tools of Vertical M2M and develop by other means my business applications.

"

I either don't have any business applications or my current are not designed to manage my objects, generate interfaces such as dashboards or create automated processes.
I would like to quickly design my IoT applications with low investment. A simple tool that fulfills my main needs would be perfect.

"

I would like to develop my IoT service from scratch. Or I can't figure out how to analyze my processes in order to extract the value of the Internet of Things.
I would like to get guidance into service design and technologies to get up and running quickly
