SaskTel Launches M2M Management Centre

SaskTel Launches M2M Management Centre Business Innovation  SaskTel Saskatchewan

Yesterday, SaskTel announced the launch of their new Machine to Machine (M2M) Management Centre.

The online portal allows business customers to streamline processes, boost productivity, and increase profitability through a self-serving dashboard, as more and more technology becomes digitized.

“It allows the business owner to actually set up and monitor all of their devices,” said Manager of External Communications, Tara Tibeau. “A lot of things nowadays are becoming digitized, and that’s allowing them to sort of manage and control their devices. As well, the devices are kind of now able to transmit information they weren’t able to before, so that’s going to automate a lot of functions for people.”

SaskTel already has customers utilizing the service for anything from monitoring delivery service to operating vending machines, according to Tibeau.

“We have some farmers that are actually using the monitoring system in their grain bins, so things like temperature control humidity and other factors like that that you wouldn’t have the ability to know if it’s in a big bin without it being sensorized. It’ll tell you when you need to make adjustments,” she explained. “It’s becoming very popular all across all kinds of different industries, and really it can be used for a lot of different applications. I think as things become more digitized and people want to be able to control things using just an internet connection, so basically you could use your phone and log on and check to see if the vending machines have chips in them, is the grain okay, is the temperature in the bin good, and things like that. It’s an exciting and new application of technology.”

In addition to finding information in one place, the M2M Management Centre allows customers to self active or deactivate M2M SIM cards, pool data, report, and access troubleshooting tools.

Tibeau adds SaskTel is not a telecommunications company anymore, but a technology company that is striving to satisfy both consumers and business customers.

SaskTel Named Top Employer for Young People and Workers Over 40 Business  SaskTel Saskatchewan

The top employer in Saskatchewan was Sasktel this year for young people and workers over 40.

Sasktel Communications Manager Tara Tibeau says support is how the company does it.

“We’re always looking at opportunities and always looking at ways that we could be better. Year after year. We have a supported employment program, so we’re always looking to make sure that we’re hiring employees from all walks of life and that everyone that is working here is supported, in whatever needs that they may have.” Tibeau said

Tibeau feels is part of the company’s evolution that leads to these awards.

“Sasktel is always looking at our programs and services. The type of benefits that we offer to our employees. And one of the things we’ve actually been complimented on or one of the things we’ve been recognized from is our evolution. Our responsiveness to our employees, “Tibeau said.

The award is selected by Mediacorp Inc., and the company last won an award for diversity employment.
