The Internet of Things

Internet Devices

Do you have an idea for a product that you want connected to the cloud, but are unsure if it can happen? Perhaps you know it's possible, but are unsure how to make it happen? Or perhaps your concerns are more with the consumer: will the end user see benefit in connecting to the cloud?

Connecting to the Cloud

Naroch has years of experience in electronics design and connectivity. In fact, we have seen an increase in customers asking us to make their devices connected. Sometime it only needs to communicate with another device in the same location, or sometimes it needs to access the internet to exchange data with a remote server or another device located remotely. Whatever requirements your device may have for connectivity, Naroch has the know-how to make it happen both locally and remotely. In all likelihood, if you have a device that you want to connect to the internet, it's more than possible to make it happen.

End-User Adoption

Cloud based services and the connectivity of every day devices to the internet is an increasing trend. In fact, there's even a term for this. It's called "The Internet of Things" or IoT. Essentially the concept is to take things you use every day, perhaps even in your home, and use the internet to increase the usefulness or reliability of the device. Fleets use this by having vehicles report to a central server or dispatch to give service and performance updates. This information can be used to repair things before they go wrong. Sometimes the application is less mission-critical but simply a matter of convenience. It could be a device that allows you to monitor or control the temperature of your house when you aren't home. This emerging market offers countless possibilities for people to make things that we previously could only dream of become a reality. So if you have an idea and want to turn it into a product, Naroch's electronics design services provide the capabilities to take you from the concept to the prototype.

Business Case

Once your product is made, it will go through the normal product life cycle. It will start off in growth where sales increase substantially after introduction to the market. Then it will reach maturity where things level off again. Finally, it will reach the decline stage where sales start to taper off. This is often solved by adding functionality to the product and reintroducing the upgraded version to the market.

It has often been observed that younger people are more keen on electronics and the internet than their previous generation. This, together with the product life cycle concept, offers a great opportunity for those entering the consumer products market. This younger population are more apt to purchase new technologies, potentially capturing their business at an early age . If the product is upgraded and reintroduced into the market again they are also more likely to purchase the newer, better version of the product. Youthful consumers could be around for many product life cycles. Each product life cycle increases the percentage of repeat customers. Design your product to cater to the current lifestyle and they are more likely to purchase your product and subsequent editions of it.
