iBeacons are Here!

iBeacon Demo

We’re already using iBeacon technology in our projects. Want to try it? We can show you a DEMO right now!

iBeacons allow museums, shops, malls, supermarkets, etc. to send notifications to users in close proximity, and can also be used as a kind of indoor GPS navigation system. This technology, in addition to being more effective than existing indoor location technologies, has a significantly lower cost compared to other solutions. It’s a great way to communicate with your visitors or customers, and to optimise their visiting experience.
