  • Joint IoT solution helps create safe buildings with social distancing, contact tracing and occupancy limits

Pointr, a leader in indoor location, announced a partnership with Bosch.IO to enable location-based services and safe re-entry solutions to large buildings.

With Pointr Deep Location, customers can locate people and assets accurately in real-time inside buildings, where GPS isn't available. They can guide people indoors using their mobile devices, track valuable assets and leverage location analytics to improve their operations. Applications include use in workplaces, retail, manufacturing, transportation and healthcare environments.

Some of the benefits of location-based services include:

  • Optimize spatial efficiency and reduce people density in the office
  • Improve the location-based experience of building users
  • Enable location analytics to optimize operations 
  • Track and monitor the movement of assets

Social Distancing and Contact Tracing

As many companies plan to return to work, customers also have access to WorkSafe, a range of digital solutions for safe distancing, contact tracing and occupancy management. 

“Lots of employers contacted us asking us to help with two problems” comments Ege Akpinar, CEO of Pointr. “Employers need contact tracing where they don't have to send everyone home when one person tests positive. The second problem is occupancy counting where they need to be sure there is no overcrowding and they can monitor the occupancy rates” 

Ege Akpinar commented “WorkSafe solves these problems with an app for use by employees when they are in the office, that connects to an employer dashboard that protects privacy”.
