Vodafone Machine-to-Machine (M2M)

Manufacturing

Global competition and rising fuel and materials prices, mean that it is imperative to find new ways of working in order to reduce costs across all areas of the business. The industry is under intense pressure to increase productivity, make business processes more efficient and meet sustainability targets.

M2M technology provides efficient, cost-effective automated information gathering that is transforming the industry in four key solution areas:

Asset tracking

Tracking the location of large industrial equipment and factory assets such as raw materials, consumables and spare parts that may have been too remote or too costly to track before. M2M improves business processes such as inventory management, shipping and delivery, tracking parts, work in progress and employee data.

Asset tracking

Remote monitoring and control

Remote monitoring and control is the continuous monitoring of key equipment and assets including components in-line, vehicles, plant equipment and more providing real-time status updates on volume, level, temperature, humidity, pressure, on/off status and product use. This enables for example pro-active maintenance reducing unexpected downtime.

Remote control enables changes in configuration and even remote error correction, instead of sending an expert to a site-visit, saving both time and money.

Remote monitoring and control

Fleet management services

M2M fleet management solutions enable the efficient planning and routing of vehicles for service and inventory management, increasing response times and optimising efficiency.

Environmental control

M2M technology makes it possible to keep a close eye on a multitude of environmental conditions such as air quality, irrigation, temperature, pressure and chemical monitoring in order to comply with regulations and ensure worker safety and protect property.

Our Code of Conduct

Reporting concerns

All employees and contractors have a duty to report any breaches of our Code of Conduct, which is known as our "Speak Up" policy. We have launched a global external reporting scheme which allows employees and contractors to report through a third party. This new process enables us to consolidate existing whistle blowing practice in local markets, increases visibility and ensures consistency of approach in responding to concerns raised from across the organisation. Concerns may be reported anonymously and the protection of innocent people is our priority at all times. People can identify themselves to our external partner using a PIN and receive feedback. Vodafone has a non-retaliation policy and will not take any action against anyone reporting a genuine concern, even if this is proven not to result in a breach of compliance.
