Kore removes enterprise barriers with iPad-based IoT system
July 21, 2016
Managed wireless network services provider Kore has introduced an iPad-based IoT system for businesses with the aim of removing barriers-to-entry for enterprises.
The system aims to streamline complex technology and business challenges into one contract, device, platform and connection, removing cumbersome obstacles, such as hardware procurement, wireless carrier selection, cost management, application deployment and data security.
The IoT is rapidly empowering new business models and opportunities, transforming the world into a marketplace of collecting, managing and gleaning business value from data. Mobile workers and field-based service agents are at the forefront of data use, but require a seamless combination of hardware, software and always-on connectivity to do so.
The Kore-powered, iPad system is said to deliver comprehensive tools to tap one of the richest emerging areas for businesses to monetise the IoT.
With hardware, software and connectivity in one seamless package, businesses are empowered to mobilise operations, from point of sale to field service automation. The end-to-end Kore iPad-based service delivers processing power and data security for industries such as healthcare, utilities, insurance and commercial equipment servicing, where mobile and remote worker productivity and management are paramount.
“IPad and iOS represent the most secure, powerful and convenient solution for business users to remain productive in every work environment," said Alex Brisbourne, CEO of Atlanta-based Kore. “Coupled with our field-proven software management and global connectivity, we’re able to help businesses deliver tangible, near-term returns from the IoT."
Kore-powered iPads provide simplified and secure user operations by delivering pre-installed applications while delivering the processing speed, power and data capacity needed for complex workflows. Through enterprise-grade device and application management features, IT can manage multiple layers of security and through mobile device management apps. And the iPad’s power efficiencies enable mobile workers to stay up-and-running for an entire day on a tablet’s single charge.
