Do you really need that expensive IoT “solution”?

May 24, 2017

We all want to be more customer-centric.

Whether you’re in agriculture, logistics, insurance or fine arts, you don’t need thought leaders to tell you that measurement and data will make your business more precise, responsive, customer-centric and ultimately profitable. Whatever business you’re in, you’re in the business of serving your customers. You want data that will empower you to drive customer satisfaction without breaking the bank.

“IoT” is going mainstream, and with it, businesses of all sizes are waking up to to the importance of analytics on physical space. Rightfully so– sensor technology can give organizations the sort of real-time insights on their real-world environments and assets that were, until recently, reserved for the digital world. How many people have passed through our doors? Check data from a people counter. Which tables are unoccupied? Occupancy sensor. What’s the temperature in my greenhouse– and is it too hot for my crops? Temperature-humidity sensors.

Be wary of the oversized IoT project

It may be tempting for businesses to buy into the large, expensive and consultancy-heavy IoT projects, but don’t believe anyone who tells you that you’ll need months of setup, consulting and IT to start monitoring your environment. With a plug and play product, you can set up a sensor network yourself and start measuring immediately. Add sensors, customize your dashboard and set your alerts– all in a few minutes. Eliminate the overhead and reinvest it into expanding your network when necessary. 30MHz was built to scale, so when your company’s read to measure more, growing your sensor network will be seamless.

Demand ROI first

Don’t start a costly IoT implementation on blind faith. See the value straight away. Even a few sensors can transform operations and cut costs. You don’t have to spend months waiting to see what connected devices can do for you. Start sensing incrementally: install a handful of sensors, see their value and keep reaping the benefits. You could be seeing results tomorrow.
