Internet of Things
IoT enables a richer and faster flow of real-time operational data, yielding deeper, more accurate insights about your business so you make better and timelier decisions. For example, with GPS location tracking, you can dynamically schedule and re-route staff and vehicles to increase on-time deliveries.
With IoT solutions, you can monitor your assets in real-time, resulting in improved operational efficiencies and standards. For example, food and drug manufacturers monitor shipping containers for changes in temperature that could affect product quality and safety.
With IoT data at your fingertips, you can identify new revenue streams to complement your product offerings. For example, equipment manufacturers can offer new services such as charging for remote monitoring and servicing a customer’s equipment.
IoT can help enhance the safety of your employees, especially those working alone in hazardous areas. For example, IoT enabled cameras in truck cabs can alert drivers to hazards ahead, such as a potential collision situation.
IoT offers new ways to protect valuable and sensitive inventory, equipment, and plant machinery. For example, IoT-enabled GPS tracking to help find and recover stolen assets.
IoT allows businesses to understand and service the needs of customers better than ever before. For example, businesses are using IoT to keep inventory stocked and inform customers when field/delivery staff will arrive.
