Tabcorp and SPREO Partnership delivers a game-changing 3D geo-fencing mobile solution for Digital Wagering

By | Uncategorized

NEW YORK (PRWEB) JUNE 04, 2018–This press release announces the successful deployment of a high-precision 3D geo-fencing mobile solution for the regulated wagering industry.

 

Tabcorp, an integrated wagering and entertainment ASX 100 Company, has selected SPREO’s solution for their digital gaming offering, called the Keno app. Keno, a primary focus of Tabcorp’s gaming division, is a lottery-like wagering game. Keno revenues reached just over $212.7 million in FY17.

Tabcorp’s primary challenge was to enable the functionalities of the app within the boundaries of NSW government regulation which restricts gaming outside of the perimeter within their licensed venues. In a CIO50 2017 featured coverage, Tabcorp’s CIO Kim Wenn mentioned that they “needed to find a solution that enabled a customer to play Keno via the app within a venue, but for the play to be disabled once outside the venue. The boundary needed to be strictly monitored to adhere to regulations.”

“So basically, the app would have to implement a geo-fence and adhere to these guidelines,” explains SPREO’s COO, Rajan Vaz.

Wenn’s team evaluated the technical viability of several world leading vendors prior to adopting SPREO’s solution. Wenn adds that “The innovation process consisted of working through a large number of prototypes that would determine which technologies were worthy to further explore”.

Tabcorp’s partnership with SPREO is recognized as a significant milestone in establishing the viability of high-precision 3D geo-fencing technology. The simplicity of the Spreo SDK empowered the Tabcorp team to implement the Keno app with embedded indoor positioning algorithms efficiently. It utilizes 3D geo-fences with bluetooth beacons, along with intelligent floor plans to meet the regulatory requirement with an accuracy of one meter.

Vaz says “Through a clever usage and placement of BLE beacons in a venue we are able to clearly demarcate zones and boundaries that can be designated as belonging to an approved or not approved section within the venue”. Vaz adds “Our capability to demarcate irregular boundaries and its association to an appropriate zone (whether approved or not approved) was the primary challenge that we helped TABCORP overcome.”

Spreo has proven to be a nimble and crafty player in the IoT arena by fully utilizing the IoT sensors and BLE beacons. Customers are able to deploy SPREO’s solutions on a mass scale through strategic improvisation similar to the scenario of Tabcorp. The flexibility in the technology conveys that it is qualified to be implemented across many other industries and verticals.

Major Global Enterprise Deploys SPREO for Smart-Office Mobile Solution: Improves Workplace Efficiency and Employee Collaboration

By | Buzzworthy, Corporate Solutions, News

A blue-chip, multinational corporation has successfully implemented SPREO’s smart office technology with the aim of improving efficiency, collaboration and workspace utilization amongst its workforce. The deployment includes multiple company campuses and will be expanded worldwide in 2018.

Marking a strong growth spurt in 2017, SPREO continues to enable companies to boost productivity and employee experience through location-aware solutions, integrated with business efficiency tools. Among its most common integrations, SPREO connects with enterprise-wide resource booking systems and mail exchange systems. The mobile app allows users to effortlessly book resources such as conference rooms and workstations from their mobile devices before navigating to them on a digital campus map. Users may also share their live indoor location with colleagues, allowing the company to collect valuable occupancy and utilization analytics. Since GPS signals cannot be received indoors, SPREO’s solution relies on the latest in IoT technology: Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons, which are deployed throughout the campus and help determine the X and Y coordinates of each user on the map.

These advanced integration capabilities have positioned SPREO as the leading indoor location solution provider for corporations for digital wayfinding, workplace efficiency, location sharing, dynamic office collaboration and more.

How Will Spreo’s Wayfinding Solution Integrate with Our Hospital App?

By | Digital Wayfinding, Healthcare, Indoor Wayfinding

SPREO’s mobile solution increases patient and visitors’ positive impressions of your hospital while decreasing stress and anxiety. It reduces staff interruptions while increasing on-time arrivals for appointments.

However, one of the questions we frequently hear from hospital executives involves concerns about how Spreo will integrate with their current hospital app.

 

We find that hospitals typically fall into one of three categories with regard to this question.

  1. They have an excellent, current, content-driven app that engages their patients and families.
  2. They have an app that was designed a couple of years ago and is already outdated and underutilized. They really need a new app but it is not in their budget.
  3. They do not have an app yet but are moving in this direction.

 

We will address all three situations here.

Already Have an Excellent App

The Spreo SDK integrates our software stack into existing apps to enable location-based features for our clients and their development agencies. This is a seamless process that causes no disruption to the existing app and is a powerful addition to what is offered.

 

Need a New App

For hospitals that have an outdated app, this is a way to solve both problems. Our comprehensive solution is not just a step-by-step, blue dot indoor navigation tool in your patient’s hands. It is also a powerful content management system (CMS), empowering your ability to develop content and create a current, customized, user-friendly app, improving the patient experience.

 

Do Not Have an App

Many of our clients know they need to offer an app to their patients and families and are in the planning stages. Our development team is extremely nimble and can accommodate and integrate your plans. This includes everything from patient education, patient portals, multiple campus information, nearby pharmacies, feedback, and links to your website and social media.

In summary, our indoor wayfinding solution is usually just one feature in our clients’ custom app. While we are happy to provide the simple navigation app, we can meet your needs, whatever they may be when it comes to your app.

Wayfinding is a strange word.

By | Digital Wayfinding, Indoor Positioning Technology

Wayfinding is a strange word. It’s  really an abbreviation for “finding your way.” It is used to describe systems that help you to find your way through a facility or venue using signage and directional information. It is as much an art as it is a science.

Wayfinding systems are expected to successfully direct people in widely differing circumstances and locations. Wayfinding must take into account how people read and process information, where they instinctively look for signs and how they interpret arrows. It must try to do that despite widely varying literacy levels, language barriers and disabilities of the people who will be attempting to follow the directions.

You may no longer notice it, but wayfinding moves you from the door of your favorite  coffee shop to ordering to pick up. You also depend upon it to move you successfully through airports the size of small cities, from parking to the ticket counter to the gate. Wayfinding also moves you through hospitals, whether you are arriving calmly for a doctor’s appointment or are terrified and rushing to find an injured loved one in the emergency room. These are just some of the complex circumstances under which wayfinding must hold up. Read More
