Today, corporate "intelligentization" has become an inevitable trend and opens the door to new revenue streams for manufacturers. However, traditional manufacturers face many challenges when it comes to upgrading and intelligentizing products:
- A long development cycle that typically lasts six months to one year and R&D costs that can reach several hundreds of thousands of dollars.
- The substantially higher level of complexity in the development process and product incompatibility: manufacturers have a lot of difficulty in being able to guarantee product compatibility as they need to work with several suppliers to intelligentize their products.
- Difficulties in expanding into international markets: manufacturers can miss the opportunity to expand outside of their domestic market if their suppliers fail to provide cloud services with worldwide reach.
Tuya Smart neatly solves these challenges for traditional manufacturers with its newly released, fully upgraded IoT platform. The launch of the English-language version of the system has demonstrated the company's competence in empowering global manufacturers with AI. Citing an example, with the Tuya Smart platform, manufacturers of lighting products, including sockets, switches and lamps, can complete the transformation of their traditional products into smart ones within just one day and put the smart products into mass production within 15 days. The combination of internet-connected modules, cloud services and apps allows for simple and efficient development of smart products.
