5 Top Test and Measurement Instrumentation Industry Resources

Posted by John Bogart on Wed, May 28, 2014


We live in an era where anything, and everything, we need to know is at our fingertips. All we need is access to the internet – the information highway. This is both good and bad for companies.  The advantage is that it is now easier for organizations to have a direct connection with the people using their product or service. They can publish information they know their customers are looking for, making it easier for their customers and advocates to stay up-to-date with new products, industry trends, and company news.  Customers can now feel more connected to, and possibly more loyal, towards companies and brands. The challenge with all this information is how to stand out, how to be relevant, and how to engage your customers with the right information.
