Approaching the client to the brand is one of the daily challenges of any company. But with the Internet of Things, this became easier. It is already possible to offer to the client personalized experiences, for example, when entering a store, the customer can automatically receive on a smartphone, connected to wi-fi, a welcome message from the establishment.
Another smart solution is when trying clothes on. A virtual mirror can try on the items for you, without you putting on and taking off your clothes, using only digital resources. An interaction that makes the purchase more convenient and fun.
Another IoT solution in retail is the smart displays, which can automatically identify the customer’s gender, and the machine is able to suggest products based on this information.
However, the benefits are not only for consumers, businesses also gain from the IoT solutions. With the Internet of Things you can monitor the customer’s time spent in the store, the sections that were most visited, among others.
Telemetry devices, sensors for automation of customer services, mechanisms for tracking customer’s time spent in stores, and location systems are just some of the key tools to retail operations. Innovations like this help retailers to improve productivity, reduce costs, and increase sales.
In the rush of everyday life, not always we realize how much “cellphones” — which used to have basic features such as calling and sending text messages — have devolved and now are called smartphones. These devices have become true intelligent machines and have so many features that sometimes make irrelevant the fact that such devices also make calls.
The evolution of the Internet, which was previously only accessible through a computer connected to a modem or to a telephone line, currently allows a wireless signal to be received by any device with wi-fi technology. This has contributed to the creation of a world with solutions connected through IoT initiatives, in which the performance of different devices is controlled from a single command.
The connection of “things” is a very dynamic theme, with daily news, and goes beyond the devices presented by us in the post about “Things that can be connected with IoT.” Manufacturers of various types of devices are also on this journey and discovering the many ways to access and use the internet of things in business — consequently, making life easier for people. Today, companies which are making room for the Internet of Things are not only considered “modern”, but, in practical terms, are more competitive, and reference in their respective trade.

All of these benefits are possible with “the third wave of the Internet”: the Internet of Things. But what are these “things”, characters of this smart world? Get to know some of them now:
