You deserve to have visibility into your business.  You can communicate and collaborate with people.  This blog is about communicating with machines, vehicles, equipment or other business assets (all referred to as “machines”) and transforming that data into meaningful information.

The blog is entitled, M2M Success, because there’s so much more to be gained with the right communication solution than just visibility.  Success is what we want.  Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication is a means to that end.

Let’s start with why you want visibility into your entire business, especially if machines are significant to your bottom-line.  Here are a few reasons to leverage M2M:

  • Reduce costs
  • Increase up-time or accessibility
  • Respond more quickly
  • Be proactive
  • Gain early insight into opportunity
  • Recover what otherwise would be lost
  • Reduce theft
  • Be compliant
  • Increase and protect revenue
  • Thrill customers, work smarter…and more

Let’s summarize those points.  This is not simply about visibility of machines.  It’s about visibility into your business where machines are a significant component of the business.  This is about gaining better performance from these assets - and the people - in your business through better machine communication, control and intelligence.
