Telefónica becomes Nestlé’s worldwide IoT communications provider


Telefónica Business Solutions, a leading provider of a wide range of integrated communication solutions for the B2B market has signed an agreement with Nestlé, the world’s leading nutrition, health and wellness company, to provide IoT communications in more than 50 countries for their Nestlé Professional coffee solutions, aiming to support the company´s  digital transformation.

Nestlé’s main objective is to monitor the coffee solutions’ parameters to optimize customer experience and increase business efficiency. To do this, they have integrated Telefónica’s Smart m2m Solution, a best-in-class platform to manage and control IoT communications developed entirely by Telefónica, which is already serving more than 2,500 customers globally, across all industries. New Nestlé Professional coffee solutions will incorporate the telemetry solution while legacy versions will have an add-on module that will provide them with the same capabilities.

Telefónica will provide Nestlé with best global IoT connectivity, enabling Nestlé Professional to interact with their coffee solutions. Nestlé will be able to control all key solutions’ parameters, optimizing the end user experience – for example adjusting the coffee taste. Additionally, Nestlé operations will be more efficient thanks to remote configuration and predictive maintenance models.

Henri de Roo, Global Head of Business Applications, at Nestlé commented: “Telefónica enabled us a new way of communicating and interacting with our coffee solutions at a global scale, allowing us to personalize our customer experience. We trusted their capabilities to deliver this project and they were able to respond to our needs beyond their own network footprint.”

José Luis Gamo, Telefónica Business Solutions’ European Corporates & Multinationals Director, stated: “This key commercial deal demonstrates our global reach and enduring relationship with Nestlé who has trusted Telefónica this time to provide cutting-edge connectivity across the globe. We aim to empower all-sized companies with prominent communications to help them lead the digital revolution ahead and consequently better serve their own customers”.

“We’re excited about the breakthroughs this collaboration will bring,” said Young Sohn, President and Chief Strategy Officer, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. “Today, we live in an era of smarter living brought about by the convergence of technology and life science. It’s an era where the data from smart sensors and devices in our daily life such as mobile phones, wearables, and smart refrigerators can help us to understand our nutrition and activity and to guide us towards a healthier lifestyle.

By combining the Samsung ARTIK™ IoT platform vision, deep semiconductor expertise, and a global platform of smart device solutions, together with Nestlé’s expertise in nutrition and biomedical science, the collaboration aims to better understand the voice of the body and empower millions of people to live well and be well.

The relationship extends beyond what millions of consumers already enjoy and experience with the global brands of Nestlé and Samsung. What makes this collaboration meaningful is that it combines digital and comprehensive nutritional sciences in a way that has great potential for worldwide reach. This relationship is underpinned by extensive research, the innovative, visionary people inside Samsung and Nestlé, and the recognition of this collaboration synergy.

Samsung Strategy and Innovation Center and Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences will work towards the development of a new digital health platform to provide more personal and meaningful insights that inspire healthy living.
