Mägenwil, 29. October 2020 – Bechtle Schweiz AG has moved to expand its vast IT infrastructure portfolio by adding a range of services related to the Internet of Things (IoT). To this end, as one of the leading Swiss IT companies, Bechtle Schweiz AG is now able to pool expertise in its newly formed IoT Solutions business unit and is expanding its partner ecosystem with innovative and renowned makers of sensor, connectivity, and platform technology and solutions.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly gaining traction, in Switzerland and all over the world. The business segment has an annual growth of about 18 percent and is uncurbed even in the face of the corona pandemic; in fact, industries and applications in the areas of healthcare, digital supply chain, and access control are adding to the momentum. However, IoT-related hardware and software available on the market often only provide isolated technologies and platforms instead of truly end-to-end solutions, which is making customers and technology manufacturers look increasingly for support from experienced partners for their integration.
Bechtle’s new IoT solutions offering is an attractive choice for a great number of companies and public-sector entities in Switzerland., Sectors such as manufacturing, supply chain, pharmaceutical, energy and construction, food and non-food retail, and logistics, in particular, can benefit from a wide range of possible application scenarios. IoT is used anywhere where there’s a flow of people and assets. Creating a digital twin helps to detect the location and status of a resource, optimize processes and develop all new business models for product and service providers.
The full-service approach for integral solutions
Bechtle Schweiz AG aids customers in creating an integrated solution with the right choice of devices and means of data transfer, device management, secure data storage and analytics, development of custom apps, and connection to ERP systems. The new IoT Solutions business unit is the latest addition to Bechtle’s vast solution portfolio in the fields of IT infrastructure, managed services, data analytics, modern workplace and security.
“Our portfolio has been expanded to tie up technology, processes, and business to real, value-added end-to-end solutions. Companies in Switzerland increasingly understand the meaning of IoT solutions in the context of the digital transformation and its implied use of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence or blockchain,” said Christian Speck, Service Director, Bechtle Schweiz AG. “As a full-service provider, we accompany our customers as their central competence partner on the journey from consulting all the way up to the rollout of individual IoT solutions.”
