Jessica Poliner

Chief Executive Officer, Relayr
Equipment as a Service: More than A Theoretical Model

Equipment as a Service (EaaS) requires understanding and building the various components. During implementation, industrial companies need to address core elements of change, such as program enablement, financial structuring, asset management, technology, and risk solutions. The stakes are high. For that reason, a turnkey EaaS bundle becomes a stepping stone to driving long-term value and bringing theory into practice. Ultimately, managing potential challenges and adopting a unified EaaS approach across the organization leads to better chances for success. Learn how to better adapt to customer needs and react faster to market changes, drive value using the Equipment as a Service bundle approach, address business transformation challenges in an effective way, gain insights into a real-life use case of Equipment as a Service transformation and get tips & tricks to simplify your EaaS business model transformation.

Jessica Poliner joined relayr in February 2022 as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and also serves on the board of directors for relayr, IoT Financial Services, and Munich Re’s IoT Advisory Council. Jessica brings over fifteen years of leadership experience working in global diversified industrial companies and has a strong track record of growing businesses. Jessica holds a Juris Doctorate (J.D.) from Marquette University Law School and a Bachelor’s degree from Vanderbilt University.
