Econocom creates a dedicated IOT ENTITY and reinforces ITS partnership as an integrator WITH SIGFOX
Econocom designs, finances and oversees companies’ digital transformation. With over 9,000 employees in 19 countries and revenue in excess of €2.3 billion, Econocom has all the requisite abilities to ensure the successful implementation of large-scale digital projects: consulting, sourcing and technology management & financing of digital assets, infrastructure, application and business solution services, and project financing.
By setting up a dedicated Internet of Things (IoT) division, Econocom has reached a new landmark in its ability to speed up the digital transformation of organisations. To that end, the group is building up its partnership with SIGFOX, the very first provider of a global IoT-based communications service, to ensure greater autonomy and competitiveness for its connected solutions.
Made up of consultants specialising in embedded technologies, this new team will offer pragmatic solutions to address industrial and service companies’ need for operational efficiency. Combining Econocom’s distribution and digital asset financing expertise, it offers a catalogue of IoT business solutions with a high return on investment that can be incorporated into contracts that generate cost savings.
Thanks to their expert knowledge of the main IoT platforms, Econocom Group’s Services division will provide deployment, outsourcing, maintenance and customisation for the solutions. Econocom’s expert consultants will thus coordinate a unique combination of skills to assist companies with their IoT projects, from ideation to industrialisation, and on a pay-per-use basis.
Nicolas Lecocq, Director of Econocom’s IoT division, said: “After spending three years conducting market analyses and running a number of projects, our teams have succeeded in identifying both the potential and the obstacles on the IoT market. Our catalogue of solutions gives customers an immediate overview of added-value use cases. In addition, our integration services perfectly complement those of our technology partners, enabling us to offer end-to-end project management and maximise business benefits. Developing our partnership with SIGFOX will consolidate our position at forerunners in reinventing companies’ business thanks to IoT.”
Stuart Lodge, Global Head for Sales & Partnerships at SIGFOX, added: “The immediate availability of SIGFOX’s connectivity offering means that any company can make the IoT transition and create new market opportunities now. Econocom has developed expertise that ensures significant return on investment based on added-value solutions covering devices and apps. I am thrilled that Econocom is one of the first systems integrators to join the SIGFOX ecosystem and thus contribute to boosting the IoT market.”
