The Internet of Things (IoT) is a popular term in recent years that simply describes the connectivity of an object with the internet, but IoT has developed into something much more transformative; it’s changing how we work and live.
For organisations and workforces, IoT is enabling a major transformation seen in the wealth of newly available data taken from interactions with customers, sensors and assets. According to Vodafone’s latest “IoT Barometer 2019”, adoption of IoT has risen to over a third (34%), highlighting its significant acceleration in recent years.
For the workforce, the physical walls of the office are disappearing as they have access to data that enables a more predictive service delivery. IoT supports and enhances greater sharing of real time information, allowing organisations to become proactive and react more effectively. Workforce time can be used more efficiently as sensors work to create jobs and tasks rather than manual activities and scheduling. Those organisations who are utilising IoT are seeing these benefits quickly (95%), with over half (52%) realising significant returns on their investment.
In this eBook, we will explore how IoT can be utilised to better manage workforce efficiency, as well as exploring the IoT foundations in place within TBS’s connected mobile solutions. We’ll take a look at the benefits that IoT and connectedness will have within your organisation and workforce, before taking a step into the future and looking at how IoT will continue to develop.
