Indoor geofencing is a feature of real-time local positioning systems (RTLS), which can be used to determine the boundary of a specific area of territory. Using an application with a geofencing feature allows you to calculate the location of a person or asset in real time, as well as instantly detect the entry/exit of Navigine's advanced geofencing software to increase the efficiency of an object outside the outlined perimeter.
When an object crosses the virtual zone, the system initiates various actions. Using a geofencing application, you can send notifications or advertising messages, search for equipment, and receive detailed analytics of visits in a specific area of the building or near it.
Geofencing software can be used in a variety of ways, from asset discovery and time management to theft prevention and geolocation marketing.
Using geofencing applications, you can divide a building into an unlimited number of zones and significantly speed up the search for equipment, machinery, products, and other items in each of them.
Improving the safety of staff and visitors
Through geofencing software, it’s possible to send a notification to a person if they have entered the danger zone and spent too much time there. The solution helps optimize area management of the building, improves business and operation processes, and increases the safety of people.
Monitoring hazardous zones
Geofencing applications can be easily configured to control access to certain areas. The program determines the entry rights for each user, calculates the time spent inside, and tracks the exit. Thanks to it, you can not only have valuable data but also prevent unauthorized access.
Staff time control
Geofencing services allow the manager to keep track of the staff from the time they arrive at work to the time they leave the building or a specific room. Using geofencing software, you can accurately calculate working hours, track late arrivals, and correct daily tasks.
Tracking the flow of materials in different zones
Geofencing is an irreplaceable tool for monitoring the flow of materials in manufacturing. Each zone can be considered a separate production stage, which allows you to keep track of raw materials from the moment they are released from the warehouse to the finished product.
Geofencing platforms can be a great solution for tracking valuable assets at companies. As soon as the object in question leaves the geofence, a sound signal is immediately triggered, which warns the staff of possible theft.
Using geofencing marketing software, you can notify visitors of your company’s offers. As soon as a person enters the established zone, they immediately receive a message with information about promotions, discounts, and bonuses.
Increasing visitor/customer engagement
Museums, exhibition halls, and galleries effectively use geofencing to provide customers with personalized content. Visitors receive useful information while close to certain exhibits (e.g. paintings), which increases their engagement levels.
Getting detailed analytics by geofences
Geofencing services provide heat maps and various charts that help with analyzing the workflow of the company. With their implementation, it’s possible to obtain data on the number of visits, the time spent by each visitor in a certain part of the building, and other useful information.
Benefits of Using Navigine Indoor geofencing Software
Navigine offers two geofencing application options for integration - Navigine SDK
and Navigine Tracking. The choice of software depends on the specific needs of your project.
The benefits of our geofencing platforms include the following:
The opportunity to implement a system based on various technologies and equipment suitable for your specific project.
Fast setup using Navigine's intuitive software interface.
All tracked objects are displayed on a digital map without picture delay.
With indoor geofencing, it’s much easier to track production processes, facilities, and staff, which allows you to get a full picture of the company's business processes and optimize them.
Suitable for both indoors and outdoors
You can monitor not only the areas inside the building but also the surrounding areas. The implementation implies the use of GPS.
