We have spent quite a lot of time planning our service to make it as reliable as possible. We carefully selected manufacturing partners who provide high quality beacons and NFC tags to be used by our business clients. The beacons broadcast both Google Eddystone and Apple iBeacon formats, as well as standard telemetry information such as battery-remaining and beacon temperature. Our NFC tags need to work with both Android and iOS smartphones and the various restrictions imposed by Google and Apple. Ensuring all of this works consistently with our apps has been challenging, but our development team are people with upto 30 years in IT and technical consultancy. We know what we're doing and have a track record of setting up other successful internet based businesses. Our cloud service runs on high-end servers designed for continous running and easy expansion as our service grows.
We have spent a lot of time ensuring that when we deliver beacons and tags to clients they are fully configured to be used out of the box. Most beacon and tag providers offer a very basic un-configured beacon/tag and the method available for configuring them is, to say the least, very lacking and very technical. Indeed, most companies offering beacons and tags at the moment are consultancy-led and expensive. Our aim is to offer a ready-to-go service at extremely affordable prices.
As well as our cloud platform for managing a lot of the beacon and tag information and logging usage statistics, we have also put a lot of effort into an Android calibration app. This allows business clients to control the signal strength broadcast by beacons, ensuring the message is broadcast a determined distance between 1 and 50 metres radius. e.g. you may wish to broadcast to everyone within 50m of your shop; or you may have a fleet of beacons throughout your museum, with one next to each exhibit and only broadcasting to those stood within 5m.
In summary, Nearevo has built an experienced team to setup and manage a robust beacon and NFC tag platform. Its efforts have ensured that any business wanting to use beacons or NFC tags can now do so a lot more cost effectively, and with only a fraction of the effort required than if they were to choose a number of other providers.
