ESAB, a global supplier of welding consumables and equipment, has started offering Weld Cloud, a connected welding solution. This innovative solution allows enterprises and welding services companies to better monitor and optimize the performance of their welding equipment, increase quality and develop new customer services. ESAB chose Tele2 because of its end-to-end understanding of ESAB’s strategic goals and proactive partner go-to-market program. With Weld Cloud, ESAB anticipates lowering operating costs and increasing revenue with new services offerings.
ESAB offers welding products and services to large and small businesses
ESAB is a supplier of exceptional welding equipment, ancillary support services and consumables – the raw materials used during the welding process. ESAB supplies an extensive range of products for some of the world’s largest enterprises as well as do-it-yourself, at-home solutions. With 8700 employees worldwide and annual revenue of USD2.3 billion in FY2014, this 110 year old company remains a global leader in its sector.
The welding business is competitive and the best manufacturers like ESAB are always innovating to improve product quality and performance while bringing new welding-related services to customers.
To innovate, ESAB decided to create Weld Cloud, a connected welding solution, to help ESAB’s customers better use their welding equipment, more easily track welding operations and stream-line the welding process. With a connected solution, ESAB would better understand usage characteristics of its equipment and provide customers with hands-on support in optimizing equipment performance and consumables usage. But ESAB needed reliable, secure, global connectivity for its equipment so it could leverage the data it would be collecting.
