Intuiface + Beacons = The Power Couple

IntuiFace and Beacons
Beacons, particularly popular in retail, are low-energy devices broadcasting either a unique identifier or a URL. By assigning a beacon to individual items or by sending beacon notifications, content providers can create a contextual bridge between product/service/information displays and the actual product or a mobile device. Thanks to this omni-channel scenario, visitors can take information about a given item with them, making the content "stickier" and thus more influential and memorable. The effect is so pronounced that interactive digital signage and beacon technology have been labeled the new power couple.

Usage Examples

Proximity Detection

Detect real-time change in distance separating a beacon-tagged item and an Intuiface-based digital sign. For example, create signage that displays information about an item lifted off a shelf (Lift & Learn) or placed in a specific location (Bring & Compare).

Application Notification

Detect beacons and show related content. For example, gallery visitors holding iPads running Intuiface-based experiences are presented with information about each beacon-tagged work of art as they are approached.

URL Broadcast

Broadcast a URL using the Eddystone-URL protocol. For example, run ads in Intuiface-based kiosks that – when touched – broadcast URLs for associated coupons. There are a number of apps available on Android or iOS to capture these URLs, making the Physical Web™ accessible to anyone with a mobile device.

Track Beacon Usage

Couple beacon usage with Intuiface Analytics to collect deeply contextual information about your users.
