Jump-Start Your IoT Initiative

Manufacturers are making major business improvements using the Internet of Things (IoT). They’re delivering value to customers in new ways and exploring new business models like selling outcomes versus products or shifting to a predictive service model. Some companies are well on their way to this strategic value, while for others it may seem out of reach.

How can your company jump-start your IoT initiative? One proven way to get started with IoT is by remotely monitoring machines, either in your own plants or in your customers’ facilities. This gives you the real-time information you need to quickly identify failures and fix equipment more efficiently, improving service while reducing cost. Remote equipment monitoring provides value in the short term and helps develop a strong analytics foundation for your broader IoT strategy.

This Quick Start Guide shares suggestions on what companies can do to get equipment connected, start gathering data, and put the data to use. Let’s get started!

Digitalization will fundamentally change the competitive landscape in service and manufacturing. We believe that companies that transition to the digital enterprise using the IoT will take market share away from competitors and achieve highly profitable growth.

Next Steps

Remote monitoring using the IoT can provide rapid value by helping your company gain visibility to your equipment. The value is strategic, but getting started doesn’t need to be intimidating. You can start small and grow value over time. Your investment can provide a valuable foundation to build on as you connect more equipment or implement more advanced features.

It’s important to find an IoT platform that offers a variety of predefined connectivity and application options so you don’t need to undertake a large integration project from scratch. Find a solution and IoT-savvy partner that can get you started with a simple project, but that offers the business knowledge and advanced tools needed to help you expand on your early success.

Remote equipment monitoring lets companies reduce service cost, increase service revenue, develop stronger relationships, and start the transition to proactive and predictive service. It’s time to get started to improve value for your company and your customers.
