Vodafone Business offers enhanced IOT solutions in Netherlands with IoT.nxt
As adoption of Internet of things (IOT) solutions pick up pace, Vodafone Business has announced it will start offering additional and enhanced IOT solutions to its IOT customers in the Netherlands using the platform of IOT innovator IoT.nxt.
IOT is increasingly considered a cornerstone for digital transformation of both public and private organisations. The technology is primarily used to boost business performance: from improving operational efficiency to creating new connected products and services and improved customer experience. The COVID-19 pandemic has further accelerated this growth. According the Vodafone IoT Spotlight, the vast majority of companies (84%) using IOT claim that the technology helped to keep the business going during the crisis. They expect the adoption of IOT applications will continue to rise to make their company more resistant to unexpected market changes.
“As a Vodafone group company, we can now help Vodafone Business support their customers on their digital transformation journeys. Vodafone Business and IoT.nxt want to accelerate the adoption of IOT in markets around the world. The project announced for the Netherlands is rolling out now, but this is just the beginning for us. IoT.nxt’s software capabilities and industry expertise, bundled with Vodafone Business’s market presence, partner network and international communications IOT network, will make this partnership relevant for any organisation that wished to digitise their business operations. The IoT.nxt platform offers a combination of software and hardware to deliver the digitisation of businesses and allows for fast implementation,” says Nico Steyn, CEO IoT.nxt.
John van Vianen, Director business market at VodafoneZiggo, says: “We are focusing on what our customers need, not on what we want to sell them. That is why we are excited about being able to offer them complete and innovative IOT solutions to achieve better business outcomes. Businesses of all sizes need reliable partners to accompany them on their digital transformation journey. IoT.nxt will enable us to serve the needs of our customers in all major industries and on a much larger scale.”
According to the 2020 Vodafone IoT Spotlight report, 87% of businesses say IOT is critical for their future success. The ability to harness technology is a fundamental attribute of being a ‘future-ready’ business. These businesses have a positive attitude to change and are open to new technology. Vodafone Business, together with IoT.nxt, will aim to support these businesses in their journey to become ‘future-ready’.
