Challenge

Working closely with the SimplyHome team, Locatify was given the task of creating a iBeacon enabled iPad guidance and learning system for the interactive Johnathan Dodd Technology Training Center.

Solution

An iOS app was created and SimplyHome installed a network of iBeacons throughout the centre. Guests and staff are provided iPads with the preinstalled Easy Tour app which shows a floor plan of the building with green stations (zones) marked on the map. The app then connects with iBeacons which have been attached to each station, enabling the station content to be triggered automatically as the guests or staff move through the space.
