Santa Rosa, California (PRWEB) August 20, 2014

ATIV Software today announced the partnership with Radius Networks as the preferred device vendor providing RadBeacon proximity beacons with iBeacon™ technology for meeting professionals who wish to send targeted messages to event attendees based on their indoor location. The EventPilot conference app displays specific messages depending on the participant’s position at the venue. Event planners can easily alert participants about attendee services, special events, and conference sponsors or integrate with event gamification like scavenger hunts.

“Our EventPilot meeting app is known for its high quality and we were looking for an iBeacon vendor that offers matching quality products and services,” said Silke Fleischer, CEO and Co-Founder of ATIV Software. “We are excited to work with Radius Networks to supply beacon devices to our clients so they can introduce new ways to interact with their attendees.”

RadBeacon proximity beacons are Bluetooth Smart™ low energy transmitters that can be detected by the conference app when attendees are in close proximity. They are ideal for triggering location specific messages the meeting planner prepares in advance. Small RadBeacon proximity beacons with iBeacon technology are positioned throughout the conference venue to display information relevant to that location.

Meeting ATIV’s goals in maintaining or reducing a conferences’ environmental footprint, Radius Networks offers USB-based Bluetooth low energy devices that are simply plugged into a monitor, computer, or USB power adapter. Unlike beacon devices that require batteries, RadBeacon USB proximity beacons with iBeacon technology can easily be re-used at future events.

“The EventPilot conference app is a leading example of how Bluetooth Smart™ (BLE) proximity beacons using iBeacon™ technology can be used to enrich medical and scientific conference attendee engagement,” said David Helms, Chief Product Officer at Radius Networks Inc., the leading provider of mobile proximity services. "We are delighted to be working with ATIV to enable EventPilot to make it easy for meeting organizers to create informative and engaging experiences for their attendees."
