Successful IoT deployments require expertise and skill across all areas of the ecosystem, from hardware to software to security, throughout the entire lifecycle from solution design to end-of-life. Most enterprises lack the internal resources needed to ensure success for their IoT initiatives. In addition to staff limitations, many organizations don’t have the experience or expertise to identify and overcome challenges associated with configuration, deployment, and ongoing maintenance.
So how is an organization supposed to deploy successful IoT solutions? By starting with one device and working with a partner who pays close attention to seemingly small details, such as having additional hardware ready in case of a failure, getting devices into the field swiftly, and efficient supply chain management. IoT managed services providers help enterprises do just that through a full suite of forward and reverse logistics that streamline operations and simplify the complexity of IoT deployments.
Getting IoT devices out of the warehouse and into the field is more complex than many realize. An expert IoT managed services provider does more than just ship devices; they manage all aspects of forward logistics including forecasting, order management, configuration management, supply chain management, asset management, and global import/export management.
Sustaining an IoT initiative over time requires a broad range of services, many of which are closely related to their initial deployment counterparts.
It’s easy for companies to get overwhelmed with the details of IoT deployment logistics. By starting with one device and working with a trusted IoT expert, it’s possible to ensure success with a full suite of IoT managed services that includes forward and reverse logistics.
KORE configures, tests, packages, and ships hardware and devices so they arrive ready for use, which speeds time-to-market for IoT solutions. When devices need to be repaired, replaced, or decommissioned, KORE manages the reverse logistics to keep operations running seamlessly, enabling customers to focus on their core business and end-users.
