The Internet of Things (IoT) gives businesses a new and better way to communicate and interact by allowing the devices that are constantly used (such laptops, smartphones, and tablets) and other appliances (such as light switches, washing machines, refrigerators, and coffee makers) to work seamlessly together. With the advent of cloud solutions and other digital technologies, the use of IoT for business communications has helped revolutionize the workplace in a number of ways such as delivering better customer service, improving decision making, and simplifying workflows.
In a world where customer’s attention span has drastically decreased as their demand increases, using an innovative mobile messaging solution can give organizations the opportunity to get their messages across nearly instantaneously. Mobile messaging solutions like short message service (SMS) enables organizations to enhance customer interactions, improve their branding, and drive business sales. Through SMS technology, organizations can also help their employees foster productivity and efficiency in the workplace.
Partnerships, mergers, and acquisitions have a profound impact on an organization’s growth. Although these strategic alliances are the norm in business, it’s not every day that two key players in the cloud communication space decide to join forces.
In today’s digital age, the Internet of Things (IoT) is no longer just a buzzword. The IoT has the potential to transform everyday life, redefining the way businesses work and how devices and people interact and connect with each other. With the advent of digital transformation, more sophisticated tools and technologies are created, bringing the IoT industry to a new level.
In the healthcare industry, it is essential to have an effective, real-time communication system in order to optimize patient care. This is why healthcare professionals, especially remote clinicians, seek a robust communication solution that enables them to easily connect with their patients from anywhere and at any time. One tool that empowers caregivers to improve clinical workflows and provide a higher level of patient-centric care is Yorktel’s mobile telehealth kit.
The advent of mobile technology has paved the way for the emergence of over-the-top (OTT ) messaging apps like WhatsApp, Google Hangouts, and Facebook Messenger, all of which enable individuals to connect and reach all of their contacts in a seamless way. As OTT messaging apps continue to transform and change the mobile messaging market, traditional short message service (SMS) and multimedia messaging service (MMS) are overshadowed by these advanced messaging mediums in terms of functionalities and features.
