Home working and remote monitoring to support customers even during the emergency.
Flash Battery stops production after the Italian Prime Ministerial Decree dated 22 March. Production is temporarily shut down, the company’s remote assistance, sales, administration and purchasing departments remain active in home-working mode.
For many weeks, Kaitek Flash Battery had extraordinary measures in place to continue producing and supplying its acclaimed lithium batteries. These included home working, shift production, full-site sanitation and daily screening of the staff.
However, it wasn’t enough. The more stringent measures introduced on 22 March put the company in the category of non-essential production activities, forcing Kaitek Flash Battery to close its plant (news of a possible exemption arrived a few hours ago).
Remote control system: uninterrupted monitoring, even during the emergency
Fortunately, with Flash Data Center, the predictive and automatic diagnostics of Flash Battery lithium batteries takes place fully from remote. This aspect, which was already appreciated under ordinary circumstances for its convenience and the countless advantages it offers, today is making a real difference.
Italy is in the midst of a health emergency without precedent and the only businesses allowed to operate are those ensuring the supply of basic necessities, so it is crucial that logistics and shipping operators have the most advanced technologies available to them.
For example, food supply chain companies equipped with Flash Battery-powered machines and vehicles can count on a continuous remote monitoring service able to:
- avoid stoppages
- perform predictive maintenance
- run self-diagnostic tests
- intervene on anomalies before they become a problem
…all this without requiring the intervention of a service technician who, under the current conditions, would have trouble arriving at the site.
Flash Battery lithium batteries are, in fact, fully interconnected with Flash Data Center, a remote monitoring system that ensures predictive maintenance and self-diagnosis.
With this service, Kaitek Flash Battery makes sure that its installed batteries are always working at peak performance, without having repair and maintenance technicians go on site.
Remote control is just one of the many advantages offered by Flash Battery lithium batteries, and more and more companies are choosing them for the performance they deliver:
- increased plant efficiency
- fewer stoppages
- no maintenance
- short charging time, avoiding battery changes
- zero operating costs (compared to lead batteries)
This technology gives a huge advantage, all the more reason why during this complex time in which the difficulties are shedding a light on the most expedient and innovative solutions, Kaitek Flash Battery is continuing its in-depth market analysis in order to step in and gradually penetrate the sectors that are ripe for electrification.
As we have seen, this step will bring an increase in safety and new, increasingly automated and efficient management dynamics.
Kaitek Flash Battery in support of the emergency response
As an act of altruism and social responsibility, Kaitek Flash Battery donated 10,000 euros to the GRADE Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation, towards the purchase of equipment for the ICU of the Santa Maria Nuova Hospital in Reggio Emilia and the local health units engaged in COVID-19 patient care.
This was part of the initiative launched by Unindustria Reggio Emilia; Marco Righi, CEO of Kaitek Flash Battery, is Chairman of its Young Entrepreneurs Group.
The comment by Marco Righi, CEO Kaitek Flash Battery
“Today entrepreneurs are called to make the special effort of supporting the public and private organisations and volunteer services engaged in the Coronavirus emergency. […] This is also a time for young entrepreneurs at the head of firmly established companies to invest in a broader perspective for the benefit of all, by supporting the extraordinary efforts (often not acknowledged) of those taking action on behalf of the health of our local communities”.
Our congratulations go to Righi and his entire staff: Kaitek Flash Battery was just named the “Best Under-40 Company in Emilia-Romagna”.
