Advanced offers top tips for businesses wanting to adopt M2M technology


As service management organisations face greater demands to improve customer service, increase first-time fix rates and cut costs, many are evaluating evolving machine-to-machine (M2M) technologies to help them meet these challenges.

M2M offers the ability to remotely connect devices, machines and equipment to the cloud, transforming them into business intelligence solutions to collect valuable data on field-based assets.
