Aiming to hit the proximity mark

Nearevo is a new way of offering a ready-made Bluetooth & NFC proximity discovery & marketing solution at a reasonable cost. It's easy to use and accessible to businesses, digital agencies, developers & marketers of all sizes.

Founded by tech entrepreneur Steve Procter, Nearevo is applying a tried and tested business startup formula that takes expensive & seemingly complex technology and provides a new, refreshing and low-cost approach for use by all.

Existing proximity solutions

To date, Bluetooth & NFC proximity discovery & marketing services have only been available as complex & expensive consultancy-led or techie solutions.

In the UK and further afield, proximity services have been out of reach for all but the largest businesses and marketing agencies. Even with the latest Bluetooth technology (BLE, or bluetooth low energy) and recent availability of NFC on iPhones, the potential market has been allowed over a number of years to fester.

Proximity is next to rocket

Nearevo's founder has spotted a gap in the proximity industry. A simple and free app for iPhone and Android phone users will provide timely and locally-relevant information discovery, based on the users proximity to simple out of the box Bluetooth beacons or NFC tags purchased and installed by its business clients.

A fresh approach, dramatic cost-reduction and a simple self-service dashboard for businesses will allow Nearevo to open up proximity discovery for anyone.

As a successful venture technologist with 30 years IT and business experience, Nearevo's founder is set to re-awaken the Bluetooth & NFC proximity game.

Nearevo has a winning formula

It's time for Nearevo to win.  We've done it before...

In 1999 Nearevo's founder created Easily, one of the first domain name registration companies and with the first easy to use DNS management dashboard. It created mass market appeal and slashed the going rate for domain names. Recognising an internet technology that was restricted to a handful of players, Easily was a rare dotcom era success in the UK and helped open up the $4 billion domain name market.

A few years later Steve spotted a similar market for providing low-cost SMS text marketing services to small businesses. SMS Expert took a complex technology, made the price accessible and wrapped it in a simple dashboard for use by any high street business. The approach kicked off the UK text marketing industry.
