Innovation in M2M Solutions on Display at Battle of the Platforms
“Digi, the victor of last year’s competition, updated the crowd on its iDigi solution. It is newly integrated with Saleforce, and this integration provides an impressive use case. If, for example, your hot tub malfunctions, it can send information through the Social Machine to Salesforce, and the dealer can dispatch a tech to your house. Everyone in this chain will have up-to-date information, and your spa may be fixed before you even know it is broken!”
