Positive Proximity Expands RFID, Wearable Beacon Offerings

Positive Proximity has begun offering RFID and wearable beacon integration. The project began three years ago as an effort to make check-in and attendance-tracking options available for small and mid-sized meetings, and has since grown into a toolbox of options that provide ease, accurate data and check-in processes for events.

"Our focus has been on affordability and ease of use," said Drew Sathern, Positive Proximity's president, in a prepared statement. "That continues to be critically important to our mission, but now, after years of being in the trenches with our clients, we are seeing the need for full-service event check-in and attendance tracking being just as important to them. We have the capability to offer it through many channels including location-aware beacon technology, RFID, hardware-based scanning and on-site support, and now we're opening the doors to the full potential of Positive Proximity."

The company also aims to provide more reliable badge printing and configuring capabilities, Sathern explained. "This is something that tends to slow the process down time and again," he added in the prepared statement. "We began experimenting with one aspect of RFID and our efforts snowballed." The company then worked to address various obstacles that typically impede registration and tracking analytics.

"The key for us is integration," Sathern added in the statement. "Expanding services to include registration hardware, labor and onsite support has enabled Positive Proximity to harness location-aware technology for exhibit floor analytics, lead retrieval, and custom RFID solutions for exhibitors"
