Benefits to Your Business

Connecting your product or the assets in your business to the Internet enables you as a business to bring immediate return on investment.

  • Visibility - Understand exactly where, how often and how your product or asset is being used in the market or at your business.
  • Reach - Connect with your customer or end-user in the case of maintenance or even before a potential failure.
  • Uptime - Provide remote maintenance of the product or asset and only intervene with the customer experience when needed.
  • Feedback - No more needing to do customer feedback surveys, they just use the product and it gets better!
  • Future - Create an opportunity to build additional services, products or open new markets based on real-time customer usage data.

Benefits to Your Customer

Making your products or assets connected to the Internet has benefits to your customer and employees as well.

  • Service - No need to schedule service when parts break and need to be replaced. The product informs whomever it needs and has the ability to schedule the service.
  • Personalization - Users now have the ability to interact with and control your product or asset with a smartphone or other device.
  • Survey - No need to give feedback on satisfaction with the product or how it's being used in surveys. They just use the product and that data is captured.
  • Warranty - Product registration or warranty cards are not needed. All of this information is discovered and integrated once connected.
  • Training - The product is now able to give feedback and information to help and train the user; immediately increasing the value of the product they purchased.
