Mobikats is an award winning mobile development house led by CEO Phillip Hunt. Mobikats Enterprise led by CTO John Haselden has been set up to help businesses work more efficiently using mobile technologies. We've developed in-house kiosk applications for clients like Oliver Sweeney, AllSaints and Fragrance of the world. Their in-house team use the applications we've created to efficiently serve their customers in-store.
In 2014 we started to explore iBeacon technology and the Internet of Things. We've learned that this new and exciting area of tech can bring spaces to life and connect them to smartphone users, personalising their experience of the world around them. We like to call it the "Internet of Spaces".
We tested every beacon on the market and searched the globe for the most effective iBeacons we could find. Our
search led us to a UK manufacturer who has worked with us
to create iBeacons that can work across iOS and Android devices and that have a super long battery life. Hotels.com benchmarked our iBeacons against the market and chose us!
We've developed a software development kit, code that can identify iBeacons. We've also built a platform that can manage, map and message smartphones that detect the presence of iBeacons.
We've implemented iBeacons at the Guildhall Galleries in London, so we know what it takes to roll-out this tech and use it effectively.
We know that new technology needs to be tried and tested so our CCO, Rohini Contractor is working with businesses who want to experiment, innovate and learn using iBeacons.
