Software and Hardware Integration

There are business processes that can’t be achieved with just hardware or software; it needs to have both. If you are in need of something to process the data from your hardware, we can help you by creating a software for it.

When do you need software and hardware integration?

There are many ways you can benefit from this. For instance, if you’re running a restaurant, you’d want a system that could monitor how much your food wastage is. If you have a pharmaceutical company, an app with lasers via USB can help control production. The possibilities are endless. To make all these possible, ITS offers hardware-integrated solutions that are innovative, automated, and cost-effective.

How can we help you?

Are you in need of a software which interfaces hardware devices? Then, we can do it for you. We can also help in the development of tablet, web, mobile, and desktop-based apps that are connected to remote or local database.

In order to create a fully efficient system, we ensure that the following elements are covered:

  • Customized user interface dashboard—For users to quickly and easily maneuver around the system and retrieve, understand, and visualize data from the hardware, we customize a user-friendly design.
  • Big storage—Transfer and secure large amounts of data on the software, so you can have definite results during the analysis.
  • Automated alerts—Get alerts when you go beyond the parameters you have set.
  • Analysis report—Generate reports from the data captured and stored and print or e-mail them when needed.

Our team has worked on several different projects related to software and hardware integration in the past. These projects are linked to various industry sectors.

For one, we’ve created a web-based recording and reporting system for a food and health compliance service provider. The information is transferred from a Saf-T-Log to the PC via USB. We’ve also created an app that will monitor the amount of food wasted in a restaurant. The system is run on a tablet, which reads the data gathered from an electronic weighing scale. Data is analyzed through the reporting system. Lastly, we have made an application that manages production tools for a pharmaceutical company. It measures that amount of elements added to the tablets through lasers embedded in the tools.

How do we make this possible?

In order to integrate hardware to a system, we make use of:

  • Hardware: the equipment or tool in which you extract data. It could be a laser, camera, thermometer, weighing scale or any measuring devices, and a robot.
  • A sensor: the device which converts analogue signals coming from the hardware to digital data and gets it ready for the computer to read.
  • A connector: usually refers to Wi-Fi, USB cables, Bluetooth, and the Ethernet, it’s something that you use to transfer the information from the hardware to the computer
  • Software: the program that gives the hardware commands on what tasks it should perform

Since we partner with Microsoft Gold, we primarily use C# programming with HTML5 and ASP.Net MVC5 in making web apps, and WPF for tablet and desktop components. To link systems together, we use WCF Web Services. For the database, we use Microsoft SQL Server, making use of its Database Engine, Integration, Analysis and Reporting services. We also use Oracle and MySQL systems when necessary.

 

What else can we offer?

In order to assist the integrated system, we offer the following services:

  1. Hosting: We have invested in a secure, quick, and scalable infrastructure of Rackspace. It makes the installation of server hardware easier.
  2. Ongoing maintenance: If you want to have access to our in-house developers and reap the benefits of the service level agreement (SLA), then you can ask for this optional service from our customer support. If not, you can avail the 1-year warranty instead.

If you want to get more information about the services we offer, you are welcome to give us a call or send us a message on the Contact Us page.
