Blueforce IoT Meets Samsung Digital Displays for Sensor and AI Initiated Workflows

Here in the heat of summer, companies are coming to understand that the virus and its aftershocks will be felt for months, if not years.  The coronavirus will eventually be controlled, but by the time this happens, employers will have new regimens in place for managing their workforces.  So they are starting to make longer-term investments in technology to inject distance into in-person commerce, but to also make workplaces, arenas, and entertainment districts safer and more efficient.  It’s a balancing act for sure – we need to restart the economy while simultaneously protecting employees and consumers from infection.

Critical to all of this are processes and technology that support new flows for the in-person experience that meets regulations and protects workers and customers, while minimizing lines, ensuring adequate spacing, and providing sufficient opportunities to sanitize.  And companies are looking to tech to provide scalable capabilities that provide a better way to manage traffic, people, and worker safety than with clipboards and paper signs.

Since its inception, digital signage has been an important tool for the communication of essential information, and that is especially true during COVID-19. Digital signage can provide direct information on the latest health guidelines and safety tips for both customers and employees.  More importantly, networked digital signage can be integrated directly into Blueforce Internet of Things (IoT) and stream analytics workflows to provide hyper-local and context sensitive information to manage human traffic flow and distancing, while communicating accurate and timely information to customers and employees alike.   

Blueforce’s new MagicINFO Plugin for BlueforceEDGE provides a scalable and extensible means to cue Samsung digital signage based on any IoT and/or AI-enabled process or workflows.  To learn more, download our new datasheet for the Samsung MagicINFO Plugin for BlueforceEDGE, or send an email to info@blueforcedev.com for more information.
