TimeForge Intros Beacon-based Solution for Managing Staff, Assets
The company's PlaceForge system can locate personnel in real time via Bluetooth readers that receive signals from beacons incorporated into key fobs.
Each fob transmits its unique ID number, and the PlaceForge software calculates its location based on the strength of the signal received by the various hubs within a range of approximately 100 feet. The tracking data is compiled, sorted, analyzed and synthesized into reports that managers can then use to determine the exact locations of staff members and assets, as well as where they have previously been. The collected location data can be correlated with point-of-sale (POS) data. All of TimeForge's software, including PlaceForge, come with a complete Web application programming interface (API), along with pre-built integrations for a number of software suites, including Retalix's ISS45, IBM's ACE, NCR's Aloha, Micros, Dinerware, Restaurant Manager, POSitouch and several others. The data and reports are hosted on TimeForge servers that companies can access via a PlaceForge Web-based application.
The PlaceForge employee-management solution, which includes the hubs and fobs, is currently available to select partner customers in the Texas area. In mid-September, the system is expected to be made available nationwide through TimeForge and its distributors. TimeForge also plans to showcase its solution at a store as a demonstration next month in Texas, though as of press time, Presley declined to identify the store.
