This is the end-of-the-year review by infsoft: new technologies, partnerships and marketing channels were the determining issues of this year.
2016 was very interesting for infsoft, especially from the technological point of view. We were able to realize exciting projects with partners from a variety of industries (including retail, industry, healthcare, aviation) and set the foundations for new co-operations in 2017. We had the opportunity to successfully integrate technologies such as the infsoft Locator Nodes and -Tags as well as Ultra-wideband. Overall, we have recently felt a strong interest in indoor tracking in the industrial sector and the intelligent linkage of data.
This combination and enrichment of data can be perfectly implemented with the infsoft LocAware platform®, which we have also positioned as a brand this year. On the one hand, it is easier and clearer for our customers to access all infsoft tools with one login. On the other hand, intelligent processing and further development of the data takes place behind the scenes, which ads lots of value. To the press release about the new infsoft LocAware platform®.
This year, Ultra-wideband was one of the most requested positioning technologies. UWB is suitable for exact indoor position determination in the industrial environment. 10-30 centimeter accuracy can be achieved and the already existing installations are very promising. We made a website just for that topic: www.ultrawideband.io
Our in-house development “infsoft Locator Tags” is particularly useful for the analysis and server-based location determination of a few people and objects on large surfaces. In 2016, they were able to prove how well they work. To the Locator Tags.
This year, infsoft has also done a lot in marketing. In addition to the launch of the infoportal indoornavigation.com, there was a relaunch of infsoft.de/.com and a new Microsite on the subject of Ultra-wideband (www.ultrawideband.io) has just launched.
We are particularly proud of the “Innovative by Research” award of the German Stifterverband. Since 2014, the Stifterverband has paid tribute to research-based companies for their particular responsibility, which they have for the state and society.
WE ARE HAPPY ABOUT SOME NEW PARTNERSHIPS
With Swisscom AG, we have been cooperating trustfully in Switzerland for many years. Now we have transferred this cooperation into a strategic partnership and look forward to many projects in the field of digital transformation.
With the consulting company Epico, we have found a reliable partner in Belgium, which distributes our solutions in the BENELUX countries and looks after clients there.
frederix from Hannover (Germany) offers comprehensive IT solutions and operates more than 4000 WLAN hotspots throughout Europe. This infrastructure makes frederix an ideal cooperation partner for infsoft. Frederix now offers its customers infsoft Analytics and Location Based Services as well as indoor positioning.
Now we are looking forward to the coming year. Some extremely interesting new projects and customers are waiting for us. We are confident that the demand for applications in the industry and the intelligent integration of location-based data into existing systems will continue to grow.
Until then, we wish you and your family a beautiful pre-Christmas period, relaxing holidays and a successful year 2017.
