Rexel is well positioned in the automation market in China, making significant inroads in 2018 thanks to an IMC (Industrial Management Control) offering. This solution supports the rapid development of the industrial Internet of Things in China, with promising prospects. The IMC connects to various detectors and sensors that capture and analyze certain data relating to manufacturing processes and equipment. It's a tool for measuring and controlling factory performance, which is particularly useful for industrial groups with dispersed locations.
Rexel has already implemented this solution with several customers, among which a mining equipment manufacturer, supplying a hundred of end customers in entire China. It enables the customer to control and manage its machines remotely and make real-time adjustments. Therefore, the IMC generates savings and helps it stand out from its competition, while representing a loyalty advantage for Rexel.
