The IoT-based virtual assistant for cable drums management
Developed in a collaboration between Prysmian Group, Prysmian's Digital Innovation Lab and Corporate Hangar, Alesea provides a full inventory management service, whilst helping to reduce the total cost of cable management through better asset use and greater operating efficiency.
Alesea allows customers to optimise logistics, minimise cable waste and scrap, and reduce their environmental impact.
The solution consists of a smart device installed on cable drums, a cloud infrastructure for data storage and processing, and an intuitive web platform. The device is installed during manufacturing, so no intervention is required in the field.
After an extensive testing phase with over 1000 pieces, Alesea is already being commercialized in Europe and in the US.
The user-friendly e-commerce platform for optical cables
The goal of Kablee is to answer customers’ need for faster, simpler and quicker purchase of cables, starting with optic fiber.
Corporate Hangar developed a platform that helps traditional manufacturers such as Prysmian to explore e-commerce and access their increasingly digital customer base in a low-risk and low-cost way. Kablee makes the cable purchase experience simple and efficient for both customers and cable manufacturers.
Kablee has successfully conducted transactions in the Polish telecom market using a distribution model, proving that the e-commerce platform works and that clients are interested in exploring alternative ways to buy cable from Prysmian. To make transactions easier, Kablee pivoted to a software-as-a-service model.
Corporate Hangar is now growing the company with a more advanced website and developing a sales and marketing strategy.
