Share Article

Simply Made Apps and Radius Networks have partnered to offer iBeacon and AltBeacon technology to new and existing customers for the product Simple In/Out, the leader in electronic in/out board software.

Simply Made Apps Inc., the leader in electronic in/out board software, is announcing a strategic partnership with Radius Networks, Inc. to provide Bluetooth Low Energy hardware beacons with iBeaconTM and AltBeaconTM technology to Simply Made Apps’ customers in support of their flagship app, Simple In/Out. This partnership provides all Simple In/Out customers with the ability to increase the accuracy of their location-based status changes, improving the accuracy of the broader geofences-based check in/out that is already supported.

RadBeacon proximity beacons with iBeacon and AltBeacon technology are short range, Bluetooth SmartTM (BLE) transmitters that can be sensed by mobile devices when they come within 100 feet of the beacon. This micro-location proximity awareness can be leveraged to deliver a wide range of innovative solutions.

Utilizing RadBeacons, companies will now be able to use the same cutting edge technology popularized by Radius Networks and used in retail settings and arenas throughout the world. For the first time, Beacons will be brought to small to midsize businesses to solve the problem of knowing the status of employees’ whereabouts. Beacons will be preconfigured for plug-and-play support and zero setup, starting for as little as $29 USD

“Enabling support for RadBeacons is a huge step towards accuracy for all our customers.” said Bill Burgess, co-founder and CEO of Simply Made Apps. “With RadBeacons, users do not need to rely on the location information provided by their phone, the cell tower position, or known WIFI hotspots. If your phone can detect the BLE Beacon, you can get instant, automatic updates.”

Simple In/Out is a digital in/out board for offices large and small. With location technologies like Geofences and BLE Beacons, customers can set their iPhone or Android handset to automatically check them in or out of their office as their phone enters or leaves. This makes for the most accurate in/out board ever created, supporting the most platforms and customers around the world.
