Client

Client Background

Our client, a pioneer in the food and beverage industry, is the largest manufacturer globally, responsible for creating some of the world’s popular food icons. Although our client has been an active contributor in this industry for many decades, their entry into the pet food industry is fairly recent. Despite their relatively short experience in the pet food industry, our client has evolved into one of the most notable brands in the market!

Requirement

To gain a deeper understanding of the impact of our client’s product on the pet’s physical conditions. To aid our client’s R&D with the necessary means to analyze and create the most viable product yet!

Problems

Business Challenges

01.

The lack of standard nutrition guidelines for pets make the whole process difficult

02.

Deducing accurate physiological changes from the pets is challenging. No proper mechanism for the translation of information

03.

The data extracted is complex and only veterinary experts can filter through the information

04.

Lack of Innovation among the R&D to leverage different technologies and understand the most important

Methodologies

Our Process

01

Getting the sensors ready

To extract high-quality data from pets, we leveraged non-invasive, IoT enabled sensors that can track the various physical qualities of the pet

02

Crafting the application

Our iOS mobile application acts as a bridge between the sensors and the cloud platform, allowing our client to access these complex data in a simple interface

03

Leveraging the cloud tech

By leveraging one of the most popular cloud platforms, firebase, to create a suitable environment for the data and store such data for analytics

04

The grounds for analytics

The ultimate goal is to extract useful insights from the accumulated data. Data from the cloud platform can now be analyzed with a simple tech like Python or R.
