While everyone talks about their “Cloud Architecture”, the reality is that most cloud solutions act as nothing more than a data repository. The Bluzone Cloud is the only SaaS infrastructure to bring together beacon fleet management with a robust workflow/event management engine, smart algorithms to turn raw data into actionable insights, custom policies and ease of integration.
Fleet Management: Bluzone is the only cloud solution that enables fleet management in large scale environments. Enterprises that are deploying thousands of beacons and/or tracking thousands of assets, face two essential challenges: 1. They require the capabilities to monitor not just the asset, but the beacon itself. Is the beacon operating; what is the battery level; is the beacon where it should be?2. Once the beacon is deployed in the field, they still need to be able to easily update capabilities and firmware. Bluzone ensures that these challenges are easy to overcome.
Event Management: Bluzone provides actionable data on assets and the events associated with assets like – condition, location, telemetry data, queue counting, people counting, etc. All of this, in real-time, so you are able to act on this information right away reducing lost capacity, optimizing workforce and workflow, or enriching customer experience depending on the scenario.
Workflow Management: Now that you have access to this level of granularity of data, what do you do with it? This is an important distinguishing factor of Bluzone. As Bluzone allows you to set user-defined policies and receive alerts when these policies are breached or reached. This allows you to stream workflows and prioritize events that need immediate attention, like reducing lost capacity or acting on an asset that has changed location (when it wasn’t supposed to.) Content Management System:
As the market leaders in BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) beacons shipped, we have distinct advantages over our competition – collaborative relationships with our IC providers, we write and optimize our own firmware, we design and manufacture our hardware. This enables us to do things differently in how we approach problems and how we leverage the BLE and RF stacks. The benefits of our approach include:
Sensor beacons with the longest battery life in the industry (3 to 9-year battery life)
Location accuracy, with accuracies within one meter for many applications, far more accurate than standard RSSI
Support of multiple beacon protocols, including iBeacon, Eddystone and sBeacon simultaneously, so you can support multiple use cases simultaneously
Sophisticated authentication and encryption capabilities which address the security concerns of Fortune 100 companies
Available in several form factors, including BLE badges, for different applications including manufacturing, retail and corporate environments
