Business Benefits

Business benefits

M2M solutions enable businesses to develop new service-based customer propositions and revenue streams, operate more efficiently and increase customer satisfaction. M2M also helps customers to address growing compliance and sustainability requirements.

Operational efficiency

M2M enables customers to save time and money by optimising business processes. Cost saving remains one of the primary drivers for businesses to adopt M2M solutions today as the recovery of one misplaced diesel generator, for example, can cover the installation and running costs of an M2M tracking solution.

Here are some of the ways our customers are optimising their business with our M2M solutions:

  • Remote monitoring and analytics reduce the cost of failure, minimise the need for ‘routine maintenance’ visits and problems can be fixed before they have an impact on the customer.
  • Accurate information is delivered in real time, enabling quicker business decisions, less machine down-time and better production yield.
  • Information can be collected automatically and systems maintained and repaired remotely so engineers and service staff can manage their time more effectively.
  • Asset tracking enables theft recovery, theft prevention, status monitoring and inventory.
  • Vodafone has saved at least £2 million annually on its UK energy bills through automated monitoring of energy consumption at its base stations with Bglobal.
