  5. Why Field Service Requires An Open, Industry Standard Approach To IoT

    IoT for field service is a hot topic as service organizations see the potential to connect sensors in products deployed at customer sites with their field service management software. This enables more proactive service and can drive servitization. This study from IFS and WBR Research shows how IoT is just one piece of the overall servitization puzzle.

  6. Augmented Reality: Far From A Gimmick When It Comes To Field Service

    Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are beginning to have their day in the realm of consumer products, but these technologies were really meant for business purposes, such as service. This report explores the business challenges that AR/VR can be used to address, and where your firm will see the most benefits.

  7. Formidable Field Operations: The Internet Of Things Advantage

    The Internet of Things (IoT) has galvanized decision makers across industries to think about new ways to connect assets and devices, both internally and externally. In many cases, this enthusiasm has led to an overzealous “over-connection” of devices with little operational oversight.

  8. Connecting The Internet Of Things

    The Internet of Things (IoT) can be daunting to understand considering the overwhelming amount of articles available on the subject. Meanwhile, the rapid proliferation of new IoT devices continues in both our personal lives as well as in virtually every industry. The purpose of this document is to quell the hype and facilitate a discussion of how to prepare for and manage an IoT deployment at a fundamental level.
