Scaling to New Heights: How the Internet of Things Sets You Up for Growth

By Redapt Marketing | Posted on August 15, 2018 | Posted in IoT and Edge, Data & Analytics

Businesses are all about growth and serving your customers. Those are two things that the Internet of Things (IoT) just so happens to specialize in. Not only does IoT make you more efficient, but it primes your business better for scaling up as you go. It’s all about investing in tech that’s geared for what’s next, not just for what suits your needs at the moment. Below, we breakdown how the IoT can help propel your business forward while keeping your clients happy at the same time.

Gets More Out of Devices You Already Have

One of the beauties of the Internet of Things is how it connects everything. This doesn’t mean you have to go out and buy all new “IoT compliant” devices either. From your laptops and mobile devices to tablets and monitors, many of your day-to-day resources can be adapted to IoT and enabled for seamless use between them all.

Remote Work and Increased Productivity

Working from home isn’t a new idea, but it’s definitely been upgraded. Rather than just having access to email and maybe a server like Dropbox, IoT takes remote work to the next level. Your out of office employees will be able to interact with your team as if they were right there next to you. They’ll have access to all the data and devices in your office space (or as you permit). You can take it farther than that, too. You can control from a tablet mechanisms in a warehouse miles away. In the case of SmartRow, Redapt was able to help the company leverage the IoT to be able to track fertilizer distribution on crops and get a precise GPS location on certain areas all from a tablet.

Gives You Room To Pivot

As technology changes, as do many industries. If your company is even remotely touching the digital space, it’s almost a guarantee that you’ll be expected to adapt quickly to changes. It’s not about disrupting your whole business model, but about changing the way you do business. Your customers – whether individual people or businesses – are always looking for a way to get your products and services faster. If you’ve already adopted IoT in your business, you’re well on your way to making processes more efficient for all parties. As more innovations arise, you’ll be able to add them to your systems and better prepare yourself for whatever the future holds.
