Ponsse is one of the leading manufacturers of cut-to-length forest machines. With roots and headquarters in the Finnish countryside, the company operates globally, serving its key markets in Finland, Russia, Sweden, Germany, France and North and Latin America.
The owner of a Ponsse harvester or forwarder expects the best possible return on their investment. Ponsse knew that data-driven services like predictive maintenance could minimise machine downtime in advance. However, the company’s data was spread out in multiple systems that didn’t fully communicate, making data-driven operations borderline difficult.
With Solita’s expertise, data from manufacturing, after sales, services, fleet management and other sources were brought onto a cloud-based platform. The team also built APIs to enable the use of external interfaces.
