TELUS has launched an IoT Marketplace, an online space offering turn-key IoT solutions from leading technology companies, including Accenture, IBM, Cisco and Intel. The carrier has been actively building its partner ecosystem and has signed a deal with Jasper - a pioneer and global leader in IoT - to provide customers and partners with the world's leading platform for managing their connected devices. The aim of the establishment of the IoT Marketplace is to help Canadian businesses to accelerate their adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) technology by leveraging turn-key offerings from these companies.
According to TELUS, the TELUS IoT Marketplace will simplify the complexity of IoT and allow businesses to quickly deploy a solution to help reduce costs and enhance their efficiency, productivity and profitability. The marketplace will also provide instant sales channel, with lead generation, support of TELUS' sales and marketing teams, and integrated billing for developers and IoT technology providers.
At launch, the TELUS IoT Marketplace will feature 38 solutions across multiple industries, including fleet management, oil & gas, retail solutions, restaurant solutions, construction solutions and public safety solutions. The service provider is actively onboarding new partners and plans to add solutions on a weekly basis.
