The Internet of Things (IoT) is more than a buzz word. Wired tells us that when people talk about “the next big thing,” they’re never thinking big enough.
When it comes to your business, the IoT drives successful business operations and can help boost your businesses bottom line by gathering important data from your work vehicles and connected devices, giving you insight into your business practices.
Imagine your HVAC company has 13 vans that go out on house calls to diagnose problems with your potential customers systems as well as installing new systems and maintenance. You know that each of your house call visits brings in $300 in revenue on average per visit, IoT system providers like AT&T can help you to boost your business by adding one additional house visit per vehicle each day. Math time: $300 x 13 = $3,900 in added revenue simply by adding an AT&T fleet management system.
By leveraging your data, you can make intelligent and well-informed decisions, accommodate changing agendas and gain a competitive advantage. Knowing where your vehicles are at all times, you can shrink the expected arrival time for your customers which provides an exceptional customer experience. Knowing the health of your vehicles allows you to perform maintenance on a better schedule, extending the life of your work vehicles. Mobile forms for your field workers allows you to cut paper costs, provide and accept invoice payments right away and place orders for parts from the field to the office in real-time rather than delaying when the team is back in the office.
As more and more businesses implement AT&T fleet management systems, it will quickly become the standard for all business models in the future. Implementing early can give you a huge advantage over your competition in your niche, providing better and faster services to your customers and increase your business capacity with the same amount of resources.
