The Internet of Tools

Making industrial facilities and construction sites safer and more productive.

Cumulus is transforming the industrial workforce to be fully connected and data-driven, significantly improving safety and productivity in maintenance and construction. Our goal is to eliminate accidents, unplanned downtime, and re-work at industrial sites caused by poor work quality.

Manual work execution in maintenance and construction lags far behind other industries on the road to digitalization. Too many work processes are still paper based and provide little real time data or individual accountability. Inadequate transparency and accountability often result in poor work quality, leading to accidents, rework, and unplanned downtime. 

The Internet of Tools collects data from digitally-enabled tools in the field to provide a single source of “truth” for real-time quality assurance and progress tracking. The platform replaces the need for expensive and time-consuming inspections to verify the quality and duration of tasks with software and tools that improve speed and accountability.

Tools are changing from simple hardware to data acquisition devices; collecting data never before thought possible. Cumulus is leveraging this data to provide new, high-value insights to our customers, including:

  • AI-powered maintenance planning and predictive analytics
  • Benchmarking contractor, facility, and company performance
  • Performance-based vendor selection and contract pricing
