IoT benefits: How can the internet of things solutions help your business grow

This entry was posted in Technology on .

IoT benefits are unlimited. Literally. Check out this article to see how the internet of things solutions help your business grow and what you risk if you postpone developing them.

Your business may have missed the chance to be a pioneer in its industry by adopting IoT technologies when they were a novelty. But it still has the opportunity to grow and connect better with customers if you start developing these types of solutions now.

Making the leap from brand-centricity to customer-centricity is no longer a matter of choice if you want to keep your company relevant on the market. And this is exactly what IoT apps could help you to accomplish.

Keep scrolling down to see:

  • why are IoT solution a Must-Have for every business;
  • which are the IoT benefits for your business;
  • 2 examples of IoT apps developed by us (case studies).

Why are IoT solution a Must-Have for every business

From simply connecting devices to sensors to complex solutions able to streamline processes, capture raw data from disparate sources and interpret them, and provide users with access to unique features, IoT apps can mean various things.

However, regardless of the situation, the strategy behind the development process (for an IoT solution) must be designed by taking into account 3 items simultaneously:

  • users needs (what users need and expect from your solution);
  • resources (infrastructure, time, budget, development team);
  • company’s goal (how the IoT solution development could impact – in a positive way – your business’ evolution).

Being able to make your business run faster, better, and smarter, and to help you adopt, master, and evolve your businesses around new capabilities, IoT solutions became a must-have (especially in the past year).

IoT benefits for your business

The main benefits of IoT solutions are visible, especially at 3 levels:

  • Performance;
  • Reliability;
  • Scalability.

IoT apps create a significant impact on several activities for each of these levels: from ensuring a safe and comfortable workplace and managing the office building to streamlining processes, increasing efficiency, and offering powerful insights for business decisions.

Performance

  • Improved control over the operation processes;
  • Efficient resource utilization;
  • Reduced human efforts;
  • Less costs and more productivity;
  • Less time spent performing the same tasks.

CUSTOMER ENGAGEMENT

  • Increased opportunities for dynamic interactions;
  • Better customer experiences;
  • More personalized connections;
  • More enjoyable interactions.

Reliability

  • Operate multiple things from one device;
  • Eliminate the need for many business meetings or other time-consuming activities;
  • Instant access to important updates and information.

WORKPLACE ENVIRONMENT

  • Safer workplace environment (e.g., air quality);
  • Simplified office building management (fast overview from a dedicated platform/app);
  • Reduced resources consumption (e.g., electric/water usage);
  • More comfortable and modern office.

BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

  • Decisions based on analytics;
  • Improved monitoring for several activities;
  • High-quality data.

Scalability

The more applications the IoT system integrates, the more complex scalability is.

This is why it is essential to develop from the beginning a flexible system based on modern technologies. The scalability level will define the future investments for your business.

A scalable IoT system relies on:

  • component that can be reused;
  • adaptable apps and devices;
  • smart and flexible features and functionalities;
  • stable development team – ready to take over new requirements and turn them into solutions.

NEW OPPORTUNITIES

  • New business opportunities;
  • New capabilities (for adapting fast to changes);
  • New profit sources.

MARKET POSITIONING

  • Real-time marketing;
  • Fine-tune services and products.
