WHAT WE DO
We have been working with iBeacons for nearly 2 years. We have 2 apps published and have worked with businesses and organisations to produce a city-wide network across Bristol.
The google implementation of beacons. We are really excited about working with URIbeacons and will be rolling out our network very soon.
We form working partnerships between brands, retailers and new technology. We\’ve partnered with government organisations as well as retailers and event organisers.
We develop our own iOS and Android apps which provide the interface between the user and the beacon. You can find our apps on both the itunes app store as well as the Google Play store.
Our skills encompass design, development and delivery of iBeacon/ URIbeacon solutions.
We partnered with Destination Bristol (the tourism board in Bristol) to produce a city-wide iBeacon network. Our iBeacons can be found across the city in the key tourist attractions including; SS Great Britain, Clifton Suspension Bridge, City Museum, M-Shed, Arnolfini and many more.
We established a moving iBeacon network for the Bridgwater Carnival (the largest Carnival in Europe). Visitors were able to access information for the carts as they moved past.
We worked with a number of high profile marketing events to establish an iBeacon driven networking solution. Users were able to access contact information for delegates close to them.

We’ve set up a bit of a treasure hunt for you. There are 5 hidden beacons around Bristol. Each one will trigger a FREE copy of a digital magazine from our super friends at Future Publishing. Hopefully, we can run these freebies on a regular basis. Keep checking back for updates. Need a hint? Well….[…]
We’re really interested to hear from developers that are interested in working with either us OR our iBeacon network. We’ve got 100’s of beacons out there, so let’s hear about your ideas.

Right, so.. This app is currently at version 1.0. We’ve built it for you all to play about a bit with iBeacons. It’s the start of an on-going process. However, you’ve landed on this page. Now either you’re checking out the site (and that’s cool) OR you’ve found a problem and you’d like to tell[…]
We are extremely grateful to the people that have made this project possible. We hope we haven’t missed anyone. These people saw our vision for an iBeacon connected city and also helped us to gain exposure by using their blogs and social media accounts. Massive thank-you.

Ok, so here we show you where you can find the iBeacons. At the moment this is for information purposes only – we’ll be putting live data here very soon.
We’ve just launched our iBeacon proximity solution in Bristol. We have partnered with Visit Bristol and we are really chuffed to be able to set Bristol up as the first “beacon city in the UK”. There’s a nice map for you to look at which shows where we will be active. Please bear with us[…]
