Gareth Mitchell, UK Partner Manager, Heliot Europe says, “During the last 20 years I’ve seen how the industry has evolved from a product/commodity based solution sell to a services led market. I’m passionate about the potential for the channel and end users to profit from selling and using IoT solutions; which would comprise of consultancy, connectivity and devices; and the slick execution of technology deployments. While IoT has taken a little bit of time to reach a point of momentum, I believe we’ve hit that critical point where its ubiquity, and the value it brings to businesses, is rising. I’d love to connect with potential partners and end users who appreciate this, and who want to grow – or, connect with those exploring IoT, and how it can enable them to profit. We can collaborate on appropriate mutually beneficial solutions and identify the growth possibilities that IoT can deliver.”
