Daikin Applied is the largest manufacturer of commercial HVAC equipment in the world. Founded in 1924, Daikin rooftop units proved their effectiveness on the market. Yet to address the demands of a dynamic technology world, Daikin needed to enter the Internet of Things business. Such tech giants as Intel, Wind River and McAfee were asked to team up, but how was Coherent Solutions, a medium-sized IT company, able to join… them?
As senior VP Paul Rauker explained, Coherent convinced Daikin they had the knowledge and capacity to produce a top-tier interface on time and on budget. And they did. In five months Coherent delivered a Customer Portal for Daikin’s Intelligent Equipment Line. It optimizes rooftop unit performance, maximizes cost-efficiency and allows customers to access their system anywhere 24/7. Followed by a successful beta-testing in 2015, Intelligent Equipment platform was launched at AHR Expo in Orlando, Fl, and made Daikin as the #1 HVAC manufacturer world-wide.
