Außendienst-Mitarbeiter fungieren als das menschliche Gesicht eines Unternehmens. Da sie den Kunden persönlich treffen, sind sie der Dreh- und Angelpunkt bei der Interaktion zwischen Unternehmen und Kunden. Wenn Kunden das Gefühl haben, dass Unternehmen verantwortungsvoll mit ihrer Zeit umgehen, sie wertschätzen und im Außendienst effektiv kommunizieren, führt dies zu zufriedenen und treuen Kunden.

TOA Technologies tritt dem KVD als Teil der globalen Gemeinschaft bei, um bessere Geschäfte durch mehr Transparenz und kollaborativen Kundendienst zu fördern. Der KVD ist der größte und wichtigste Berufsverband in Europa und unterstützt mehr als 1.600 branchenführende Unternehmen im Bereich Kundendienst in Deutschland. Die vom KVD organisierte Service World 2012 ist eine der wichtigsten Kundendienst-Messen in Deutschland, auf der die größten Dienstleister der DACH-Region vertreten sind. Das diesjährige Thema war „Die Service-Strategien im Jahr 2020" mit einem Schwerpunkt darauf, wie die Cloud, neue soziale Medien, mobile Geräte, GPS und andere Technologien die Servicelandschaft verändern.

Als Mitglied des KVD wird TOA Technologies sich damit befassen, wie die Konvergenz aus mobiler, sozialer, Cloud und kontextbezogene Verarbeitung die Zukunft des Außendiensts verändern wird. Als Aussteller auf der Service World 2012 hat das Unternehmen verdeutlicht, wie Organisationen von diesen technologischen Fortschritten profitieren können, indem sie das Außendienst-Management als Instrument nutzen, ihre Kundenbeziehungen zu stärken.

One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
Cloudian, Inc., the leading provider of hybrid cloud storage solutions, today announced availability of Cloudian HyperStore 5.1 software. HyperStore 5.1 is an enhanced Amazon S3-compliant, plug-and-play hybrid cloud software solution that now features full Apache Hadoop integration. Enterprises can now transform big data into smart data by running Hadoop analytics on HyperStore software and appliances. This in-place analytics, with no need to offload data to other systems for Hadoop analyses, enables customers to derive meaningful business intelligence from their data quickly, efficiently and ...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products.

The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
