Traditionally, IoT and M2M solutions consist of complex supply chain demands that require many different materials, parts, and vendors to manage. Even when deploying a solution consisting completely of off-of-the-shelf components calls for significant logistical coordination to account for procuring, provisioning, testing, and delivering connected devices.
The promise of IoT continues to be a hot topic. Businesses and consumers dream about how wireless, connected devices will bring an ongoing array of gadgets, conveniences and efficiencies. As developers work hard to keep pace with the demand for innovation, many are also kept up at night with one key topic: IoT Security.
As more connected ‘things’ join the network, security concerns are on the rise.

Field service management software is sometimes seen as a point solution used to manage tasks completed by technicians in the field. Progressive companies, however, know they require end-to-end field service management that should encompass and optimize all aspects of the service delivery process in order to maximize margin and customer satisfaction. When service is more than an afterthought, and is a core factor in your P&L and go-to-market strategy, you need a more comprehensive approach.
In the service world, customers are king. Quick communication can mean the difference between a happy customer or an unsatisfied one. For service techs on site, bringing the knowledge of the entire service team can be the key to fixing an issue in minutes, instead of a second trip. Enter a mobile communication platform. Imagine sending a text or photo to the entire service team and getting your question answered in seconds! It’s like the ‘Bat Phone’ for service.
