Remote Condition Monitoring to Master the New Normal in Maintenance
Adriana Maldonado de Grüschow, Product Manager Digital Solutions, ABB

Many industries are currently undergoing a tremendous transformation of their previous maintenance operations. The arisen New Normal challenges the usual time-based maintenance procedures. Thus, the interest in remote condition monitoring increases significantly. To ensure safe and reliable operations in the future, sensors need to monitor the key parameters of the asset’s health. Cloud-based solutions with powerful algorithms convert lots of data into meaningful information. ABB will show us how they leverage the new conditions business-model-wise to seize the rising opportunities and simultaneously deliver more value to their customers.

Yokoy – AI based Spend management automation
Thomas Inhelder – Co-Founder

Yokoy brings AI into finance departments of medium sized, large and enterprise clients to automate the spend management. Thanks to Yokoy, an employee can hand-in expenses within seconds, whereas only outliers need to be checked by managers and the finance team. Yokoy’s artificial intelligence automates the process and makes the expense experience easy and smooth for everyone. Everything can be topped-up with a commission free credit card. One of Yokoy’s further strengths are deep integrations with ERP systems, travel management providers as well as other players in the spend management ecosystem.

All these features combined with extensive analytics function do make the life of an employee, its manager and the finance team much easier and allows to save the companies up to 90% of time and costs compared to a manual or semi-automated approach. Global companies such as Stadler Rail, Sensirion, Swissquote or Hero are already using Yokoy.

Thomas will explain the idea of Yokoy, how AI is used in the Product and why our tool is a great first step for a company to bring in AI into the organisation.
