We were approached by an undisclosed company to develop and support a groundbreaking security app using beacon technology for 40 globally-located offices. We were selected for this project because of our extensive work with beacon technology and our superior designed-in-house FreshBeacons.
What we designed was an iOS application and dashboard to be used in conjunction with multiple beacons throughout the company’s 40 offices. The app can be used to manage beacon and app users in real time to ensure the safety of the thousands of employees moving about the buildings daily.
Employees and guests can see their location in the building, search for conference room, and use a “request assistance” bluelight that alerts security staff members to their location. Through stations, calls are placed to the closest regional security control room and an email is automatically sent with the user’s GPS location, as well as other available location data. This app represents a fully-connected security system that incorporates both communication and location capabilities.
As with much of what we do at Fresh Digital Group, we are redefining the collaboration of tech innovations and utility with our development methods, project management approach, extensive testing and combined mobile expertise. We expect this product to redefine building security, employee safety and raise efficiency in office spaces around the world.
