Here’s how sensor technology takes the risk out of innovation

October 24, 2016

Two types of companies tend to be most focused on innovation: startups, and enterprise-sized corporates. Startups in their earliest stages innovate out of necessity— low budgets and survival mode lead to a “fail fast” and “implement whatever works” mentality. Pivot is an option. Large corporates have the resources to take risks and scout innovative startups to work with. Incubating new technologies is within their yearly budgets. So what happens to the growing, midsize company?

Can midsize companies afford to innovate?
Absolutely. But they’re more risk-averse than startups and don’t yet have the budget of the corporates. Midsize companies are working with larger budgets, but often lack the margins to budget in experimentation. They risk getting overly comfortable in a “don’t fix what isn’t broken” mindset, and losing their edge.

We need to take the risk out of innovation
Serving companies of all sizes means providing affordable tools that facilitate innovation and experimentation with little risk. In the IoT space, this means removing the need for long and expensive consultations, dramatically lowering development and implementation time and putting scale fully in the hands of the customer. At 30MHz, we’ve dedicated our company to making this a reality.

Real-time feedback drives experimentation
Wireless sensors are IoT technology at its most accessible. Sensory data captured from real business environments makes operations evidence-based, immediately. Sensors (can be) affordable, easily implemented and can have an impact on organizations even in small numbers. Just a few strategically placed sensors can provide the environmental insights needed to streamline processes and cut costs. Because wireless sensors capture data in real-time, they provide instantaneous feedback on the effectiveness of decisions. With such quick feedback loops, businesses can optimize operations on a rolling basis, never wasting time looking in the rear-view mirror.

Measurement is IoT at its most monetizable
With a low barrier to entry and little financial risk for implementation, wireless sensors offer a significant return on investment for medium-sized businesses looking to increase efficiency, responsiveness, and sustainability. Measurement of physical spaces enables organizations to benchmark operations, identify pain points, and compare the effectiveness of operational strategies— and all it takes is a few smart sensors and an internet connection.

 

How can smart sensing transform your industry?
Sensory data from physical environments is helping businesses across industries make better decisions, improving productivity and cutting costs. Let's talk about how smart sensing can work for your organization. Get in touch below.

Your data is ready for its close-up

Well, it’s the start of a new year and we’re already zoomin’ through product updates. First on the list: data zoom. You can never get too granular with data exploration, so to make things a bit more detailed and easy to explore, we’ve added a feature to let you dive further into a set of ...

Allow us to (re-)introduce ourselves

These days, we meet many of our new customers via social media. We love that— it’s real, it’s conversational, and it’s to the point. When we ‘meet’ a new customer over social media, it means that something we’ve shared resonates, and we’ve clicked with a member of our extended community. That ‘something’ might be a ...

Sensory data, water deficit control and the challenges facing poinsettia growers: in conversation with Neil Bragg

Research from Volmary has confirmed that, without granular data, growers are overwatering their crops. Data has shown that, due to floor unevenness, there is significant variation in plant moisture in Poinsettia plants. Implementing water deficit control requires the flexibility of wireless sensors and live alerts to drive a proactive irrigation strategy. Neil Bragg is a ...
