What is IoT?

For many business owners, the Internet of Things (IoT) is all about getting solutions to business problems using technology. You might be looking for answers for questions like these:

  • Where are my valuable assets?
  • Where are my company cars?
  • Are my people safe?
  • Does my machinery need maintenance?
  • Are my fridges running?  

Internet of Things solutions from Spark NZ can answer these questions and more.
