IT Competition 2017

Join Hilti’s IoT Competition and help elevate Hilti’s digital experience to a new level!

The Competition

Every year Hilti organizes an IT competition to help solve some of the industry’s most pressing problems. Students and graduates from all over the world join the competition to both prove themselves and to kick-start their careers. If you are interested in the topic of Internet of Things, this year’s competition is for you.

Enhance Digital Experience with IoT Technologies

As digitization capabilities extend, virtually every aspect of life is captured and stored in some digital form, and we move closer towards the networked interconnection of everyday objects. The impact of this is a real-time global exchange of information between multiple connected devices.

At Hilti, customers interact through multiple channels and irrespective of time, place, device or medium, they expect consistency. As a result, Hilti must constantly evolve its support models to accommodate this ever-changing landscape. The key objective is to drive consumer acquisition, retention and loyalty through services. Internet of Things play a vital role in supporting employee productivity and customer service. For customers, the user-centric Hilti IT solutions aim to provide a platform for simple, immediate access to on-the-spot information on Hilti products and services. An example is Hilti’s asset management solution.
