We help companies implement the use of IoT in cases where you want to increase the customer experience. Simply put, IoT connects any device with an on/off switch to the Internet (and/or to each other). Anything that can be connected, will be connected in this new landscape of technology. Why do we want so many connected devices talking to each other? What will be the benefit for a consumer? Take a look at a few examples of what IoT might look like:
You’re driving to a meeting, so you have your car access your calendar. It gives you transportation and route information, helping you find the quickest way to get to your destination. If you are stuck in traffic, your car might send a text to your coworkers letting them know you will be late! What if you set your alarm clock to wake you up at 6:30 am. Your alarm clock then notifies your coffee maker to start brewing coffee for you! What if your printer knew when it was running low on ink and automatically re-ordered more for you? These applications are aimed at everyday life using the development of technology that allows anybody to monitor and control their homes remotely over the internet.
Other examples of IoT are the ones that use sensor technology to monitor personal sports performance. Tools like Nike+ and Fitbit sensors collect data about an individual’s workouts, send it to a central server which users can then access to analyze their performance. The collection and transmission of this data happens largely without any human intervention.
There are a tremendous number of applications and uses for IoT that may help your business. Let us walk you through an IoT strategy for your business.
