Thanks to smart products
for new business models

Smart products not only revolutionise the way in which we interact with our environment, but they also revolutionise our consumer and user habits. This means that M2M technologies change entire industry structures and open up new opportunities and unique competitive advantages. Based on smart and interconnected products, businesses can develop new business models, particularly with B2B and B2B2C applications which reveal significant potential. This includes the Product as a Service model (PaaS), use-based offers and shared infrastructures, to name but a few examples. Further added value can be found in the use of interconnected products within the scope of a new range of functions and service offers that considerably improve the user experience.
