The Internet of Things (I0T) is a real vision that will affect your business beginning today. You know the power of the Internet and what it can do to all businesses, large or small. IoT will impact revenue in your business, whether you’re a manufacturer or a service-based company.
As the Agency of Things™, we see IoT as two pieces. First, connecting everyday items to the Internet allowing processes to be automated. Second, collecting, dissecting and reporting on the data to enhance business-making decisions. Technology, Data, Design & Technology-based Marketing.
It’s really true that we will all be digital sensations or digital catastrophes. Our purpose as your IoT Agency is to help you prepare with the first steps and the last mile of connecting your business to the IoT. We have 24+ years of experience preparing for this next generation Internet offering. You will need an IoT Agency. We are here today to help you make informed business decisions about how IoT will affect your marketplace position and offerings.
IoT moves business from the Information Age to the Intelligence Age. With devices connected to the Internet, the massive amounts of data collected from the devices will need analysis, custom algorithms, decision-making points and outcome reporting. Our partnership with the UNCC College of Computing & Informatics brings strong Charlotte-based technology and data science resources to your front door. Imagine the insight you will have on customer behavior as you use predictive analytics to virtually guarantee outcomes.
IoT will place a monetary and measurement value on employee and machine “down” time. We developed an IoT service application for hotel chains (Innspector case study) to replace outdated manual room review tasks with much faster mobile technologies that give an instant snapshot for hotel room maintenance and housekeeping teams.
The result is highly-increased room availability and faster maintenance resolutions.
This is the bottom line on how IoT will propel your business to adapt. The streamlined and automated processes will minimize downtime and maximize employee resources. Technology, data and better decision-making will provide an overall healthier ROI.
As your Internet of Things Agency™, we offer IoT services from the first step to the last mile.
The IoT applications for products and manufacturers are fairly clear. Sensors will transmit data to be processed. Service-based business IoT applications will involve creating new digital services through the use of connected devices that will automate processes, streamline employee performance and to bring more value to existing customers.
The end result of a successful IoT integration is the access to having the data to help you operate more profitably.
Including consumer devices, the Gartner report predicts IoT devices will encompass more than 6.4 billion connected objects in use by 2016, a 30% rise from this year.
According to the report, government IoT will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 17.1 percent from 2013 to 2018, with local governments projected to lead in overall IoT implementation.
All objects will have their own identity integrated into a computer system which will help them to connect to their neighboring devices or things if they are connected to the same Internet infrastructure.
One of the most significant benefits of the Internet of Things is the fact that it will vastly expand our ability to monitor and measure things taking place the real world.
Cities, too, are moving to digitize more and more of their operations, from smart street lighting and parking to traffic lights as the IoT grabs hold of constituents.
The phone company is now a car company! Well not really, but AT&T offered some insights onto how it will try to make money from Internet-connected cars.
