Thinking beyond location

Location data is just a spot on the map. Movement snapshotted in time forcing static measurements on a dynamic world.

Location data is however the raw material, the key when used with the Sense™ proximity platform to manage and control the escalating growth of connected people and things in the modern workforce.

At Sixgill, we look at how the changing paradigm of how we work mashes up not only with each person as a data source (4.8B mobile phones this year), but with each geo-location (213M by 2020) and the 20.1 billion dynamic things in IoT in the next four years.

We view this as a transformative opportunity.

We see escalating mobility and location data management as key pieces that together with proximity knowledge configure a new solution set for the enterprise.

Proximity is not simply a data point where things and people move closer or farther away from each other.

It is a new data type that doesn’t just record where action happens but can dynamically trigger new actions based on proximity events happening as your teams intersect with people, places and things.

Our Sense proximity platform is the embodiment of these ideas.

It is an open, easy-to-configure, PaaS platform designed to turn mobility management into controllable actions for the entire enterprise—for operations and manufacturing, for IoT safety and security, for human resources and sales.

This is how the Sense enterprise mobility management solution works:

1. You start with your business goals.

Do you want to create a mobile security system where in the case of an emergency you can locate, direct and navigate everyone to safety?

Do you want to design a behavioral response so when people are close to predetermined places, they receive clearance to enter or information to make them more productive?

You start with what you want to control and have impact on.

2. You set the criteria for what information to collect and what will trigger actions.

What inputs do you need from people and assets? Outside feeds such as weather or traffic? You set and instrument these.

You determine the attributes that determine the criteria for action.

Individuals security clearance or management status? Schedules for when someone is supposed to somewhere or on call? Information sources from your internal legacy systems?

You integrate pertinent information from your systems with Sense to program the determinants of action that you can manage through the Sense console.

3. Proximity events trigger the actions.

When people or places come closer or farther apart they trigger a predetermined action, such as alerting a person or messaging a group. Either automatically or directed by a manager from the Sense console.

Proximity is both the thing that ties location to goals and the reaction that happens when movement triggers predetermined things to occur.

Sixgill Sense is a horizontal proximity platform that can be configured for many of your enterprise departmental and functional needs. Your tool to manage the growth of mobility and IoT.

This is how we at Sixgill think about the impact of mobility and how the power of proximity can change the dynamics of control and the manageability of the connected enterprise as a whole.

We invite you to download our newest presentation, More Mobility, More Control for the Enterprise.

It tells the story of today’s mobility growth and how it impacts your business. And how Sense proximity platform is a solution to align mobility to your business goals.

This presentation plus an IoT demo from a Sense Expert can demonstrate how proximity enabling your enterprise can significantly change and improve how you manage your workforce and workplace optimization.

Thank you and looking forward to talking with you!


Note that every week in our Sense in Motion, series, we look at one use case for the enterprise powered by Sixgill Sense. Last week’s post was on Emergency Management.
