As we recently discussed, field service organizations (FSO) have been early adopters in Internet of Things (IoT) technology. So it is no surprise that FSOs are also staying ahead of the curve in adapting their IoT deployments to keep pace with the ever-changing nature of the technology.
Along with more dynamic sensors and connectivity options, new and exciting IoT device options are emerging, making field service delivery – regardless of industry – more efficient. Additionally, these devices are arming FSOs with more usable data analytics than ever. Here is a look at innovations that are helping to move FSOs forward:
Rugged tablets/smartphones: While these devices are not new, advances in the technology are making them easier to use and offer more computing power than ever. Even for those who may not be “tech-savvy,” today’s rugged tablets and smart phones have a very easy learning curve, allowing techs in the field to put the technology’s power to use quickly.
