Industrial Lease Optimization

Use Case

Real-time monitoring for discrete manufacturing

Financial services firms that offer equipment leasing services are facing competitive pressures on traditional margins. Upstart competitors are offering new leasing options and to remain competitive with potential customers, new business models such as pay-per-use leasing for discrete manufacturing equipment can provide that lift.

Traditionally, challenges existed in accurately monitoring machine use and production levels. However, with connected IoT components, a much more accurate picture of operation time and production output can be gathered. This opens the door for multiple approaches to constructing zero or limited capital financing for manufactures to cover quick expansions of production.

We have a solution

Optimizing lease rates for pay-peruse leasing of discrete manufacturing equipment.

This solution use case, provided by Atos on the MindSphere® platform, enables IoT connected production tracking for utilization of machines through pay-peruse financing programs.

With the ability to track machine usage and output data, financial services companies and their customers can construct lease arrangements and terms that provide a strong value to both parties. Customers can limit their capital expenditures, while finacing firms can optimize terms based on the amount of product being put into market.

Visualizations and algorithms exist for optimizing lease rates based on expected production levels and actual usage. This use case creates a strong value add for financing firms that can be paid a better rate as clients perform more work with each machine.


  • Visibility for both the leasor and leasee to monitor operating hours and productivity of machines.
  • IoT data is connected with financial business data.


  • Know the real operating data for customer use of leased equipment.
  • Improve the modeling and financing options you present to clients to drive better margins over the life of leased equipment.
  • Allow your staff to quickly understand machine lifecycle usage for ongoing valuation of equipment.
  • Improve financing sales with business model options that align with changing production demands, requiring zero or low capital funding for manufacturers.
