Virtusa's IoT platform helps enhance worker safety and productivity for a wearables company

Our client, one of the biggest wearables B2B company was facing a big challenge with workers' compensation injuries to the tune of 60 billion US dollars. They wanted a mechanism by which they could predict and prevent accidents moving into the future

The client chose Virtusa as their partner of choice because of the past experience and domain expertise.



The Challenge
  • High direct cost of workers',compensation injuries posing a huge concern
  • With a workforce of 70 million laborers in US, our client was driven by the focus on decreasing the overall compensation cost due to injuries that rises to an amount of $60 Billion
  • They wanted to develop an intelligent wearable that benefits both the insurer in pricing the risk and the company in preventing the risks
The Solution
  • We helped build this product from scratch, leveraging or IoT platform (Skylab) and augmented by our cloud and analytic services
  • The underlying architecture uses machine learning that relies more on model training and brings together the user journey (application) and data science
  • The wearable will capture the data in a cloud and the sensor readings are fed to machine learning to get the desired output
The Solution
The Benefit
  • The data collected provided insight about the structural drives to the insurance carrier to better price the risk
  • Helped the company to prevent, predict, or record "black box" data when accidents happen
  • Provided "new data" to our customers which redefines how we think about worker safety and productivity
