At ModusLink, it’s no secret that we’re headed toward a smarter and more connected world. It’s something we hear every day from our customers and see in our daily lives as we rely more and more on devices to complete tasks and gather information.
The list of the 2017 Top 100 Logistics IT Providers is out and ModusLink has once again been recognized as a leader in supply chain management—the 2nd consecutive year the company has been honored.
As we’ve discussed before in this space, there are endless business opportunities that will be created through the implementation of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies in every element of global business. Being able to quickly understand the various opportunities in front of you – and capitalize on them – will be critical to future success.
If you’ve been following the ModusLink blog regularly, you know one of the topics we are most passionate about is how the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart devices will revolutionize the supply chain as we know it. According to analyst firm Gartner, an estimated 37 billion new “things” will have joined the Internet by 2020. This new era of smart and connected devices will transform how consumers interact with devices and brands, and how companies interact with consumers.
ModusLink has some great news to share – our Poetic Service Cloud Solution recently won the Bronze Stevie® Award for the Best New Product or Service of the Year in Supply Chain Management Software Solutions category of the 2016 International Business Awards.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has been a hot topic for us here at ModusLink for awhile, as connectivity holds so much potential in the global supply chain industry. In a recent blog post, we noted that Gartner predicts 2016 will see 5.5 million new IoT devices every day, with a total of 6.4 billion used around the world. This represents an enormous amount of untapped opportunity in our industry to develop IoT fulfillment, customer service, or process solutions that can fundamentally change the way companies do business.
I’m pleased to present a webinar for all of you on how to maximize the revenue potential of Internet of Things (IoT) – connected devices in the supply chain.
