The capacity for electronic monitoring and remote control in the world of machines and devices fosters innovations and interest, resulting in significant changes in public and private sector operations and operational possibilities. Practices for managing production investments, producing health and well-being services, ensuring uninterrupted availability of energy, and otherwise achieving greater productivity by use of digitalisation have been revisited. Keeping up with and rapidly utilising this digitalisation-driven change requires new competencies and technologies. The challenge in utilising the change is its rapid cycle and rapidly changing technologies. Internet and communications technology solutions are becoming increasingly complex, and the co-ordination and overall management of technologies is difficult. Information security management is another challenge.

The extensive benefits and implementation challenges of electronic monitoring and remote control gave birth to Emtele. Customers have explored the benefits and implementation possibilities of utilising new business development innovations offered by the Internet.

When the company was established, customers wanted Emtele to join their strategy work. New business concepts were based on remote monitoring of machinery and devices. Remote monitoring aims at device service and maintenance prediction and business process automation. It was not possible to acquire multidisciplinary technologies needed for the implementation of customer innovations from a single supplier. To meet this need, Emtele created a business ecosystem capable of providing comprehensive solutions. The customer now specifies a turnkey solution and signs a long-term service agreement with one provider, Emtele. The agreement defines the responsibilities for the operational reliability and usability of the solution, as well as its scalability for future needs. During the service agreement, new development needs are agreed upon.


In the time of Internet, automation and digitalization yield ever larger numbers of sensor-based and connected systems and services. Integrated with business processes of both the private and public sector, they bring our customers essential and valuable information. Increasingly, devices are operated remotely and/or automatically. To these customer cases, we supply customer driven, innovative total service solutions that bring added value to our customers.  Therefore, our level of service, customer satisfaction and occupational safety must be of a high standard in order to achieve our quality goal.

The knowledge we provide shows the way to the right actions and solutions. We facilitate transitions from automation to knowledge-based prognoses. We share our customers’ risk in order to ensure reliable services, and as a partner we fulfil their development needs. We enable the changes needed to succeed in the future.

We are committed to fulfil requirements and to continuously improve our quality systems.

We are the key partner in improving our customer’s productivity and quality. Refining raw data, we speed up their processes. We take the next step from automation towards knowledge-based prediction.

Emtele’s solid core competences and very strong partner networks bring our customers quality and reliability with long term service commitments. We achieve real impact and productivity through collecting, refining, and utilizing data in an optimal way.
