People spend more than 80% percent of their time and money indoors

We spend billions of hours yearly searching for people and items indoors. Being able to pinpoint a person or item´s position or to guide and analyze indoor movement opens a vast untapped potential for applications, services and new revenue streams.

With Forkbeard’s sub-second latency, cm-level and >99.9% room-level accuracy, “indoor positioning” takes on a new meaning compared with other indoor positioning technologies based on radio-waves, such as Bluetooth®, WiFi, and RFID, that cannot recognize a wall or window and thus cannot distinguish one room from an adjoining one.

Whether carrying out automated smartphone location-based event-driven workflow, safety or security applications, presence-driven automated environment settings, or just simple indoor navigation or triggering point-of-interest information, Forkbeard’s technology enhances the usability, performance and user experience, and, consequently, return on investment.

“A 95% room-level accuracy or multi-second signal latency doesn’t cut it,” a seasoned hospital manager said, adding, “You might be able to deliver a few select wayfinding and asset tracking use cases with such an accuracy performance, but it is not good enough for the many event-driven workflows, patient-flow and safety applications around here.” His insights are shared across hundreds of hospitals where indoor positioning technologies are deployed for use-cases such as Nursecall, Duress alerts, Staff-to-patient introductions displays, Patient self-rooming in clinics, location supported Alert and Call-routing to nurses and doctors, Hand-hygiene compliance, and many others.

The proliferation of both iOS and Android smartphones and tablets as a tool for caregivers makes Forkbeard the natural indoor positioning technology in healthcare facilities, which can then also be used to support patient-facing applications such as wayfinding and self-rooming to drive even higher returns from the indoor positioning technology investment.
