" Press Internet of Things (IoT) Simply defined, IoT uses connected equipment and devices to create customer and business value. This seamless interconnectivity is facilitating the collection of thousands of data points on when and how equipment is being used. All these data help customers manage their equipment more effectively and reduce overall utilization costs. It also helps manufacturers and suppliers better understand when equipment should be serviced and the right time to offer technology upgrades or new products. De Jong adds: “IoT basically makes manufacturers better at the things they do by enabling them to provide better customer service, new and innovative products, digital tools and in the end, enhancing their competitive position in the market”. Role of DLL DLL firmly believes that the younger generation will drive innovation in IoT for decades to come and is keen to understand the opportunities it brings for its customers and the leasing industry itself. DLL sees IoT as an enabler in further developing existing and new financial solutions. It will help DLL to drive more proactive portfolio management and help manufacturers and suppliers better understand when equipment should be serviced and the right time to offer technology upgrades or new products. Additionally, IoT (and particularly real time data on the usage of the equipment) will facilitate the development of pay per use models. To further develop its knowledge on this topic, DLL became a partner of the Startupbootcamp IoT Connected Devices. A global network of industry focused startup accelerators that encourages and helps rising talent in IoT to reach their full potential. To download the complete IoT bluepaper, click here.
