Field Workers Productivity; IOT Devices
Review your project details
To understand how internet of things (IOT) increase companies productivity through field workers management.
Field Workers Productivity Via IOT Devices
are employees that work outside the administrative office and sometimes are required to travel to different locations. Field workers are found in many industries like
, utilities, and facilities management.
Internet of Things (IoT)
has grown beyond traditional computers and smartphones to include the addition of sensors/devices covering an enormous range of processes and environments. The
features and capabilities
of IoT devices are sending an alert to a field worker or automatically adjusting the processes, equipment, or an environment without the need for any user input.
Internet of Things (IoT)
has increased company productivities through the reduction in office administration costs, real-time management, field worker real-time utilization rates, and others.
According to a field operations management (FOM) report, there has been a
increase in field worker real-time utilization rates,
reduction in office administration costs by eliminating re-entry of field data,
increase in asset availability,
reduction in the mean time to repair (MTTR), and
According to a
, the internet of things (IoT) has provided a significant boost to workplace productivity and safety. This technology is been used by startups and major corporations in the industry.
A large corporation like
has reported how the internet of things have increased their productivity by monitoring the locations of their employees in hazardous environments, alerting and notifying workers whenever they approach particular dangers or hazards, as well as controlling access to restricted and potentially dangerous areas.
A surveyed report presented to
IoT Solutions World Congress in Barcelona
showed that field workers were excited to have special technology on them, to help them, to improve their work, to know when they're in a dangerous situation.
Companies have been able to increase their productivity by connecting field workers to IoT devices to improve
worker safety and organizational efficiency
Some of the safety concerns for field workers are
, restricted and potentially dangerous areas, location monitoring, and others.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has increased companies' productivities thought
and utilization rates.
