The below content was written prior to May 2020 when Checkit launched a new website. This coincided with the use of updated terminology for solutions, concepts and company names. The companies Tutela, Axon and Next Control Systems are now Checkit. Checkit’s Real-time Operations Management is now referred to as Connected Workflow Management, Tutela solutions are now referred to as Automated Monitoring +, and Axon/Next Control Systems solutions are now referred to as Connected Building Management.
Change is the law of life, and those who look only to the past and present are certain to miss the future.
These words, from John F Kennedy, seem fitting for Checkit as we approach the end of an important year, and look forward to 2020.
Our goal is to be a global leader in process optimisation. We are empowering our customers with an unrivalled combination of technology tools, data intelligence and consultancy services that co-ordinate people, devices and equipment for business improvement.
This summer, we took a giant step towards that goal with the acquisition of Next Control Systems. Into the Checkit group came the healthcare and life sciences temperature monitoring specialism of the Tutela brand, and the building energy management specialism of the Next and Axon brands.
The combined industry expertise, unique technology and trusted reputation of the component brands have created something special at Checkit.
Our solution portfolio now spans work management, environmental monitoring, compliance and building and energy management. These natural synergies add up to a compelling proposition for organisations that are struggling to gather, unify and analyse various operational data from numerous sources.
Whether you are trying to understand energy consumption patterns, monitor the storage conditions of food and medicines or encourage employees to follow better procedures, it’s vital that you can see what’s happening in real-time, across multiple sites.
The digitally empowered businesses of the future will rely on these advantages to maintain their competitive edge.
According to research firm IDC, the total amount of digital data created worldwide is expected to more than quadruple from 40 zettabytes this year to 175 zettabytes by 2025. To give some context, a zettabyte is equal to 1 billion terrabytes, which in turn is equivalent to 1 billion gigabytes. The growing data deluge will increasingly include a broad range of data types, a lot of which will be live and in motion.
There’s a growing realisation of the importance of this in many business sectors, including healthcare, services, the built environment, retail and leisure. This is evident in the number of customers that have turned to Checkit over the past 12 months, including multinational brands, NHS hospital trusts, contract catering companies and high-street retailers.
We look forward to expanding our work with these organisations in the new year, and introducing our capabilities to many more businesses too.
Another reason we’re so excited for the new year is that we’re continuing to evolve our technology in line with changing customer needs. Understanding the specific challenges and requirements of our customers is pivotal to everything we do at Checkit.
Our plans include new dashboards enriched with even more powerful business intelligence, document management, usability upgrades, new mobile apps, new sensors for automated monitoring, customised reporting and the addition of improved image capture capabilities to supplement routine checks.
Please continue to watch this space for further announcements over the coming months.
