Commercial Connecting to Consumer IoT – Rigado at CES?


Rigado will be at CES 2019 in Las Vegas this coming January for select meetings in the Venetian (Bassano 2708) to discuss the technology trend that will soon impact all consumers: the Commercial Internet of Things. 

While CES is best known as a show for impressive new home devices and personal gear, the concept of “consumer tech” now goes far beyond what we put in our pocket, connect to our home WiFi, or use to stream Stranger Things or Star Trek reruns. (We’re partial to some select genres around here.) 

The consumer experience of IoT is being expanded far beyond our homes and our vehicles. We will soon live in a Connected Universe that allows our coffee order to be ready as we walk by the corner shop on the way to work. Our grocery runs can take place without checkout lines or registers. Restaurant orders will increasingly be delivered to us tableside, or curbside, with a simple order from our mobile devices – no need for a traditional table number at all. Even our doctor’s visits will become quicker, more efficient and more effective. Everything from our workspaces to our dry-cleaning pickups, from the ice cream shop to the gym, and from the office supply store to the bookstore will be more seamlessly integrated into our consumer lives. It won’t matter what phone OS we prefer or which home assistant we use, this expanded Connected Universe will impact every one of us as consumers. 

At Rigado, we’re powering the transition to this new Connected Universe with our “edge-as-a-service” offering that streamlines IoT integration in commercial spaces. Traditionally, the obstacles that have stopped IoT integration in the previously mentioned locations are the complexity of installation and management, the cost of adding multiple systems (especially at scale), and the risk involved with security. You can hear more form Rigado CRO Kevin Tate on how IoT in commercial spaces can get stuck in this process from a recent presentation at IoT Tech Expo.  

At Rigado, we’re offering the commercial market the turn-key solution to these problems. A partnership with Rigado makes the complex easy through a secure and scalable edge infrastructure and intuitive management software, reduces costs through a monthly subscription fee, and meticulously manages security. 

We’re respectfully, securely, interoperably, and innovatively helping the commercial market move from idea and application pilot to full-scale execution. The result? A technology deployment that improves every consumer’s life with increases in efficiency, quality and simplicity. 

If you are planning to go to CES please sign-up to meet with us. You can also follow us on our social media channels (LinkedInFacebook, and Twitter) for ongoing updates from CES as we work to connect commercial spaces to the consumer Connected Universe. See you in Vegas!
