Hardware, Asset Tracking
As Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon technology evolves, it brings service contractors new and innovative ways to leverage their capability to track people and assets in the workplace and at service locations. Beacons can be used in several different environments in which janitorial and security contractors operate.
Beacons exploded onto the scene back in 2013 and gave app developers a new way to understand where users were within a physical space. Beacons were cheap, and BLE technology was adopted by nearly all major smartphone manufacturers. This provided significant benefits over previous location technologies like GPS that drained smartphone batteries and were generally ineffective indoors.
