Podcast episode summary

Picking up dirty laundry and textiles, bringing clean ones back – cleaning is the core business of the traditional Bardusch company. For more than one hundred and fifty years, the company has been dealing with protective, professional and special clothing or with textiles for hospitals or laboratories. However, cleaning alone is not enough: the laundry must then arrive back at the right place, exactly when it is needed. This is a constant challenge for the textile company, which demands a lot from their employees. To counter this, Bardusch has enlisted the support of the company DeDeNet.

DeDeNet is a long-standing partner of Deutsche Telekom and supports companies in the digitization of business processes. Specifically, it is about paperless, digital working to optimize operational workflows, with DeDeNet offering industry-independent, mobile software solutions for customers with mobile employees. Together with Deutsche Telekom IoT, they have developed a solution for Bardusch that allows tours to be planned and implemented smartly. The processes that need to be optimized are extremely small-scale, and a lot needs to be taken into account. In this episode, Martin Craul and Andreas Tanzer (Expert Sales IoT, Deutsche Telekom IoT) talk about the challenges of this “micromobility” and which technologies they have used to solve them.

Some results mentioned in the podcast: The number of empty runs has dropped dramatically, vehicles are more available, fuel consumption has been reduced, orders are processed faster and with fewer errors, and most importantly: Bardusch employees can appear competent in front of their customers and give them the best possible advice with digital services.

This episode’s podcast host this time is IoT use case co-founder Fabian Mattheis.
