SATO has published a new white paper to help businesses understand how the Internet of Things (IoT) can be harnessed and applied in practical terms.
Unlocking the Power of IoT uses the changing role of the humble label printer from a peripheral product into a fully integrated component in the process supply chain to demonstrate how adopting an IoT world view can transform a business model from product-oriented to service-focussed.
Author of the white paper Eckhard Wernich, Business Development Executive at Sato Europe, explains: “No-one can afford to ignore the huge potential for growth that the IoT represents. However, many businesses struggle to understand how this potential can be harnessed in practical terms and what changes it entails for their business processes and their people. SATO felt that focussing on one familiar process – label printing – would help to illustrate what is involved and how the IoT is transforming the way we do business.”
