Here’s how the Internet of Things works, and why your workplace needs it
Imagine being able to know the exact location of a forklift at one facility, a pallet of materials on another and an employee on a third—and doing it all in seconds, with just a few simple strokes on your laptop, smartphone or tablet.
It’s possible, thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT), the tech term that describes how we connect everyday items and, even, individuals—like that forklift, pallet and worker—to the Internet (and more importantly, to the computer systems that run our businesses).
When workforces implement IoT and take advantage of that connected workplace, they reap big rewards, reducing risks and building a safer and more secure environment. It’s no wonder that industry-leading companies are looking to IoT solutions to provide full visibility into the health of their workforce — and insights how to improve safety.
