The IoT Factory digital store, says the company, is designed to give everyday businesses access to the latest technology to connect and automate what matters most to their unique operations.
The IoT Factory offers ready-made solutions delivered in as few as two days and installed quickly. No IT expertise is needed, says the company.
Visiting the digital store, users will find a wide range of options – from refrigeration temperature monitoring for grocery/convenience stores to energy management tools. For custom needs, developers are invited to build their own solutions.
“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,” Rook says. “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 leverages the company’s strategic relationship with myDevices and The Goldie Group. MyDevices is an IoT solutions company that offers “IoT in a Box” – secure, end-to-end LoRa IoT solutions that include all the components necessary for an end customer to open a box and complete a simple set up in less than 10 minutes. The Goldie Group, a leading telecom technology service provider, serves as the fulfillment arm, enabling scalability for IoT.
In addition to selling directly to end customers through the Sprint IoT Factory, Sprint, myDevices, and The Goldie Group will also enable channel partners, wholesalers, system integrators, and others to buy solutions as resellers.
