Bell and Howell’s CEO Explains Their IoT Predictive Service Journey

Written by: Cam Dufty

When Walmart customers make an online purchase, they want their in-person pick-up experience to be seamless and simple. Walmart’s Pickup Tower—created by Cleveron, an Estonian technology company, and distributed in the United States exclusively by Bell and Howell—provides a fully automated click-and-collect pick-up process, in as few as 10 seconds. Walmart customers can simply enter a code sent to them at the Pickup Tower, and then the innovative robotic system retrieves and delivers their package. 

With the large volume of packages each Pickup Tower handles, Bell and Howell wanted to make them as efficient and reliable as possible. By using the ThingWorx Industrial Innovation Platform, Bell and Howell has reduced Pickup Tower downtime, improved its first-time fix rates and increased overall Pickup Tower performance.
