Communication Company Targets IoT and Building Automation
Sprint has announced the launch of the Sprint IoT Factory, a game-changing online marketplace that presents businesses with a wide selection of complete, ready-made boxed solutions that leverage the power of IoT (Internet of Things) to help them do business smarter. With more than 550,000 developers already driving innovation on the platform, everyday businesses now have access to the latest technology to connect and automate what matters most to their unique operations.
“From family-owned restaurants, medical companies to heavy equipment fleet operators and everything in between, the Sprint IoT Factory is giving business owners the power to easily enhance operations – using IoT technology to track assets and connect what’s most important to them,” says Ivo Rook, senior vice president, IoT at Sprint. “We’re excited about the effect this has on small and medium sized businesses. They can now attain the latest in advanced and secure technology at reasonable costs – with the ease of being able to buy a complete solution from the digital store, having it shipped quickly and installing it themselves within a matter of minutes. That truly drives business forward in an unprecedented manner.”
The Sprint IoT Factory comes alive with ready-made solutions delivered in as few as two days and installed quickly. No IT expertise is needed. With a simple visit to the digital store, users will find a wide range of options – from refrigeration temperature monitoring for grocery/convenience stores to ensure consumers always get fresh fruits and vegetables, to energy management tools that save businesses money. Need something unique? Developers are invited to build their own solutions.
