The internet of things is the concept of building internet connectivity into your products and services.
Manufacture any form of device or appliance? You could take advantage of the internet of things (IOT) and connect it to the internet. Our suite of tools and unique experience can help with that, allowing you to record and send information about the device in question. This can open up a whole world of possibilities such as real time online reporting and event based alerts.
One of the great things about connecting devices to the internet is that they end up sending lots of useful data. Having this data can allow you to analyse and problem solve in new and creative ways. For example there may be some pattern in the information sent that indicates a device is likely to fail soon. By catching and monitoring patterns and trends you may be able to act faster, optimise workflow and save money.
Developing solutions that take advantage of the internet of things is more than just providing reporting data, it is also possible to control these devices remotely too. You may want to be able to restart a device, or automatically push a firmware update. Web and mobile applications are put in place to allow you to see the status of your device and control it how you see fit. Being able to remote-monitor devices can greatly improve the efficiency of your test and maintenance process.
Allowing your device or product to be monitored and controlled remotely adds a high value differentiating factor to your products and services that isn't price. By offering this level of service you can stand out above the competition. If connecting to the internet is an option then who would you prefer to be the first-mover? You, or your competition?
As our monitoring platform is web based you can provide tiered levels of access to your user base. You could choose to have a free tier, or introduce a pay-monthly revenue model where advanced features are paid for as a subscription service.
