Internet of Things - 1300 Web Pro


Internet of Things

Using the internet to keep devices connected 

Internet of Things (or IoT) refers to the connection of devices to the Internet. Our engineers have experience with both electronics and software, making us the ideal people to take your IoT idea to a full solution.

The Internet of Things is a way to collect and process data from remote devices with no human interaction. By leveraging wireless networks, a remote device can send data back to a central point. This central point can then send out alerts to people or commands to devices to act on that data.

IoT is the next advancement in automation. By having an automated system collect and process data you can save time and money while getting a better and more consistent result than traditional data collection measures.

Our work on IoT projects have included work on ‘smart’ fridges and temperature monitors on milk tankers. IoT is a growth area with almost limitless potential.

Stahmann Farms

The Challenge

Stahmann Farms are Australian nut royalty, growing, processing, marketing and selling nuts for the many farms that supply to them. But processing and paying for nuts is a complicated business. A lot of factors influence the final product and price and Stahmann’s previous ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system wasn't delivering the results they wanted.  

Why They Chose Us

We are a little nutty ourselves. We’re known for thinking outside the box and coming up with insane solutions that really work. When you put all of our crazy, creative brains together in a room it’s nuts the ideas we come up with!

The Solution

We worked on developing a system that followed the nuts through their lifecycle, ensuring a smooth and streamlined program that accurately calculates grower payments while taking into account all the nutty factors such as weight, quality assurance, payment rates and whether or not the nut is organic.

The Outcome

Our solution changed the nut buying process from the ground up. The customised program saves time and reduces user error risk. It’s easy to use and data is available on demand. What’s more, nut farmers can access reports on their product and past shipments, enabling full transparency and maintaining Stahmann Farms as the producer of choice for growers. That’s something to be nutty about!

Fastrack Dealer Net

The Challenge

In the fast-moving market of transport equipment – from light commercial vehicles to heavy trucks and trailers – it’s critical to be up to date. Back in the olden days (that is, before 2006!), valuations and stock information was gathered by snail-mailing sales history to a centralised organisation every three months, who would turn the data into heavy, paper based books to be sent back to dealers as an appraisal tool. Of course, by the time the books got back to the dealers, the data was old, and not necessarily accurate. It was well past time to modernise the system.

Why They Chose Us

Even back in the olden days, when the internet was still a mysterious, dark beast to most, we were the shining light. We knew how to make that scary internet beast into our BFF (that’s internet speak for ‘friend’!), making tricky tasks much easier and coming up with innovative solutions that work. Some things never change…

The Solution


We created a digital portal that emulated the original paper-based spreadsheets, except that it provided instant data, helping dealers monitor their stock and the market in real time. The system provides this critical information in an easy to use web browser interface and, what’s more, it can push vehicle listings to third party websites like – meaning even selling vehicles has become easier for busy vehicle dealers.

The Outcome

We can’t even count how many trees we’ve saved by helping to get rid of all those books! But the proof in this pudding is really how Fastrack Dealer Net is still the tool of choice for truck dealers with almost 4000 active users over 10 years later.
