Mobile Mentor and iProximity join forces on beacon technology

Two A/NZ company will unite its technology and services with iProximity's customer solutions for proximity marketing

Local mobility management player, Mobile Mentor, has struck a partnership with iProximity to unite its technology and services with the proximity marketing consultancy’s customer solutions.

Under the agreement, Mobile Mentor will integrate iProximity’s products and services with its enterprise mobility solutions in Australia and New Zealand. This encompasses iBeacons, NFC tags and TapBoard technologies.

Mobile Mentor said it will support clients with beacon projects by providing design, app development and integration services alongside iProximity’s management platform. It will also leverage the consultancy group’s business intelligence engine to provide reporting and operational dashboards.

“We believe beacon technology will provide really useful context to the mobile experience and when you combine context with content, the user experience gets much richer,” said Mobile Mentor’s CEO, Denis O’Shea.

“We look forward to the positive impact which iProximity’s beacon solutions will have on our client’s mobility projects.”

Proximity-based marketing technologies such as beacons are becoming increasingly popular as organisations look to integrate physical and digital customer experiences.

Earlier this month Adobe announced it had integrated new capabilities into its marketing platform to allow marketers to send customised messages to beacon devices.

Taking performance cues from east Asian markets

As the ‘Asian century’ becomes ever more prevalent and the Fourth Industrial Revolution gathers speed, marketers are having to surf a tidal wave of creative destruction. The choice is stark: Embrace change, or resign yourself to a Darwinian fate.

Searching for social and marketing data

Many marketers, agencies - and everyone in between - get caught up on bubble references and data points. They’ll use Facebook best practice as the only best practice for Facebook executions and only consider metrics and responses of the one channel they’re expected to deliver on.

Why Australia needs more leaders

A few weeks ago, our Prime Minister, Scott Morrison took it upon himself to tell companies and their CEOs where to go when it came to societal issues. It wasn’t an organisation’s place to get involved. Instead, he said it should be left to governments to solve societies challenges.
