The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting our world in ways that were unimaginable 10 years ago—collecting data on everything we do and using it to streamline our daily activities. In doing so, IoT is changing the way that consumers think about service. Service organizations must be prepared to support these new customer expectations to ensure continued satisfaction to strengthen and foster loyalty.
Additionally, IoT is making its way into the enterprise, especially among organizations in industries like utilities, oil and gas, medical devices, manufacturing and telecommunications. Connected devices enable more efficient processes for maintenance and repair by constantly providing information on machines’ performance, environmental conditions, and possible failures. For example, a connected washing machine in a customer’s home could automatically send out an error report to the manufacturer when it experiences a failure. This is where field service management comes in.
