Nespresso, a Switzerland-based coffee company, recently announced that it has released two B2B machine models called Aguila and Zenius, which are connected tabletop coffee machines. Both these models make use of embedded Orange (News - Alert) SIM cards that allow the machines to communicate with the Nespresso Customer Relationship Centres.
Now remote machine diagnostic and preventative maintenance visits can be scheduled by leveraging this two-way communication. In a release, Marco Zancolo, Head of B2B Channel, Nestlé Nespresso S.A, said, “We found that Orange Business Services (News - Alert) was the best suited operator that could cope with our global requirements and can support us in our future growth. It was also very important for us to have a local team and presence here in Switzerland with M2M expertise.”
