IoT technology or “the internet of things” is a concept that frames the use of technology across many aspects of the internet. Simply explained, it is how you use technology to integrate people, processes, and technology with digital devices and services to create remote monitoring, status, management, and evaluation of trends of technology and its uses.
We have been intimately involved in the development, deployment, and day-to-day management of ITM and Service Management software platforms over the last 10 years. We can share lessons learned as well as best practices required to help you make the right decision in selecting your software platform, guide you through the integration and implementation process, and help set key metrics on how you deploy technology in your business.
The need for fire life safety-focused software has never been greater. Many OEMs are building proprietary smart-building platforms that integrate control, testing, inspections, and reporting to a central command station. Other technology companies have implemented proprietary monitoring platforms that allow fire alarm systems to communicate directly to the local fire service in the event of an alarm situation. Third-party reporting companies are building relationships with local fire departments through common reporting and deficiency tracking. Finally, new codes like NFPA 915 – Standard for Remote Inspection opens the door for several options the industry will have in capturing and tracking inspection information. Each of these initiatives highlights how technology is being used today and accelerates how it will be used in the future. Let The Mackey Group help you design and implement your technology strategy.
