Remember the old Verizon commercials with the guy walking around asking “Can you hear me now?” Twenty years ago good reception was a luxury that cost a little more. Today, good reception is nearly guaranteed on even the cheapest monthly plan, regardless of whether or not the carrier can truly deliver. Looking at you, AT&T.
With smart phones now a common place staple and an increasingly integral part of most jobs (especially after so many were required to work from home this spring) the ability to connect to a network or sync to some freely provided WIFI is absolutely necessary for most.
SPOT has the unique ability to literally keep working for you regardless of if a signal is immediately available. Which means, when you’re in some remote location or stuck in an elevator or in route at 35,000 feet in the air, SPOT is still capturing data, storing it chronologically, and able to tell you if something is missing.
What’s more— when SPOT does connect to a signal, everything you have input is automatically uploaded into the cloud, where it is safely housed in a secure, secondary location that can be accessed by your boss back at the office. Put plainly, you have don’t have to remind SPOT that it captured data while it was offline. It knows and uploads it for you, allowing you to move on to the next thing.
It’s simple. SPOT doesn’t need a babysitter. SPOT is the babysitter.
