Press Release provided by epic ERP
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a term everyone is talking about. The adoption of connected devices has exploded in the past few years and today every new appliance and electronic device that is being built has a “smart” element to it. It’s predicted there will be 50 billion connected devices by 2020.
With billions of bytes of data created every day, the questions is: What do you do with this data?
“Medium-sized businesses that want to expand and be competitive in their industries, need to start using their data in a more meaningful way,” says Stuart Scanlon, managing director for epic ERP, the official Southern African distribution partner for Epicor Software Corporation. “By using data intelligently, a business will boost productivity, increase profitability and open themselves up to new opportunities, all of which help to future-proof the business.”
According to Scanlon, gathering data is the easy part, what really matters is what you do with it. A modern, cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution like Epicor ERP can take the simplest device and process data in an intelligent way, so that a business can proactively use the information to make smarter decisions.
“With a modern ERP solution we can take a device like Scalextric and show you how the right software can gather meaningful data and turn this child’s toy into an intelligent device,” says Scanlon.
