In order to provide timely replenishment events for the supplier, it is essential
to acquire stock level and consumption information from remote consumer sites reliably
and accurately. ADOPT-FIT uses a variety of methods and tools in
order to do this.
ADOPT-FIT has developed a number of methods to transmit the data from diverse global sites. Systems using dial-up telemetry and GSM communication have now been in service for several years, as have systems that integrate directly with the consuming sites monitoring systems.
More recently, Internet transmission protocols have played an increasing role in the data acquisition.
With the co-operation of the consuming site, it is possible to provide "live" data for on-demand replenishment.
