So far, we have read stories of iBeacon implementation. iBeacon technology is potentially changing retail business and boosting their sales. Just like what happened in MC Donald when they use iBeacon and successfully boost their Mc Nugget sales.
How iBeacon is supposed to change the world is divided into 9 ways based on Washington Post. Here They are:
1. Get Coupon Deals!
Analysts agree that retail is where most consumers will first experience iBeacons. When retails place iBeacon devices in their stores, consumers who have already downloaded an app will get push notification about promos and deals. Retailers can market offers to customers they know are interested in a specific service. And iBeacons could help a customer navigate a massive store to find the item they’re looking for.
2. Your Home will React to You
A connected home with iBeacon devices will alert your about everything that’s going on. For example, Can you imagine your TV turning on to your favorite channel as soon as you enter the room? iBeacon’s smart technology will connect with other smart devices to make these kinds of custom interactions possible.
3. Museum Tour Through Your Smartphone
When a visitor arrives in front of an exhibit, extra information about the work of art could automatically be displayed on the visitor’s smartphone. iBeacon technology will make it possible for self-tours in which the app adjusts its information based on your trek through the museum.
4. Pick Up Games for Kids
What if your kid’s outdoor toys alerted them when their friend’s toys, and thus their friends, were in the area? Cue hours of entertainment and exercise.
5. Digital Ticket will Automatically Checked in You for the Game
An iBeacon could identify that a fan is within feet of the turnstiles, and a related app will open on a user’s phone. It makes everyone can easily check in through their smartphone without having to line up for too long.
6. Got Big Deals in a Car Dealership
By hosting a competition and attract customers to visit stores, iBeacon can help you set this up and give customers an amazing rewards.
7. Smart Toys that are Aware of Each Other
Imagine buying your children two Star Wars light sabers. Once the light sabers come within a few feet of each other, they could automatically light up.
8. Free Coffee and Snack while Pumping Your Gas
Thanks to iBeacon, while pumping gas you can also get coffee and snacks through your smartphone. That’s the perfect chance to offer a discount on a sandwich or drink.
9. Get Alerted when Your Bike or Car is not in the Garage
With an iBeacon in your car and an iBeacon in the garage, if someone borrowed your car without permision, information could be e-mailed or sent to you through an app or push notification.
