As for many of us, for Original Equipment Manufacturers the Internet of Things is both challenge and opportunity.
An opportunity to differentiate your products and services from the competition; but also a challenge not to be left behind.
Thingworx makes building connectivity and remote monitoring and control capabilities into your own equipment a much more easily achieved solution.
By creating Thingworx mashups, you can rapidly create solutions tailored to meet your customers’ specific requirements.
In addition, the intelligence gathered from connected equipment can help to you improve maintenance.
It can also inform future product development and enable you to consider – and integrate – new business models.
We are increasingly consuming things “as a service”.
Connecting equipment in order to understand the ways in which it is really used can help us to build a picture of the services which customers need alongside it.
In this way, the IoT can uncover potential new revenue streams and support the move to the “as a service” consumption model.
Adding connectivity into its devices and systems was a natural progression for low-power embedded system solutions provider, Vantron. Thingworx’s rapid application development capabilities and industry-standard platform made it an obvious choice.
