In fact, data has become a “fourth utility” — considered to be as vital as power, water and heating/cooling 1 . It’s no longer a nice-to-have, but a “must have” business-critical asset. As the use of data continues to rise, so too does the number of devices used throughout your facility. In addition to a diverse range of devices – including smartphones, radios, scanners and tablets — organizations are also increasingly incorporating smart devices and Internet of Things (IoT) sensors into their day-to-day operations. This growing device diversity is a challenge for organizations looking to streamline communications throughout their facilities. In addition, the increase in devices impacts employees’ ability to communicate with each other – a critical function throughout all commercial industries. 1 https://www.cbrsalliance.org/why-ongo/ Workers ranked the ability to COMMUNICATE WITH COLLEAGUES ON ANY DEVICE AND TO REACH WORKERS AT ANY LOCATION among the top three most important factors in a communication system.
