Following the hugely popular article ‘The Internet of Things’, eft is glad to bring you the second instalment from eft columnist - Steve Brady, which further explores the functions and applications of sensor technology. He looks at how “a well designed dashboard integrating the measures, with appropriate heuristics in place to provide the 'expert analysis' that traditional small business owners normally would be unable to perform, can really enhance their operations.” As he is speaking at our 3PL event, make sure you read his article to get a snapshot of what you can expect.
