MOUNTAIN VIEW, Silicon Valley, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

sensewhere Ltd., Edinburgh based developer of world-class indoor location technology, today unveiled their new geo-fencing product, geowhere. sensewhere's fully customizable platform functions both indoors and outdoors and enables rich features for key mobile applications such as advertising, marketing, and family and friend tracking as well as offering custom settings for privacy and security.

The solution is equipped with a range of features including integration with mobile advertising and marketing platforms, customisable indoor maps, configurable setings for specific people or groups including friends/family and settings for hybrid areas exploiting sensewhere's positioning accuracy. A specific geo-fence could also be activated within specific times and trigger notifications and messages which can be sent as email, SMS text message and in app notification messages. The geowhere platform also addresses fundamental issues such as mobile device battery efficiency while providing precise positioning through the use of sensewhere's propriety technology.


"geowhere facilitates a number of options for users as well as application and platform developers. sensewhere's technology is highly adaptable and enables the geofences to accurately operate anywhere. We are very excited about this project's potential and what it can do for a range of different industries", says Rob Palfreyman, sensewhere's CEO.

geowhere can be used by a range of business sectors reaching from networks operators to retail and advertising, enterprise, insurance companies, hospitals, schools and many other establishments. There are numerous applications that could benefit from geowhere including enterprise applications such as asset tracking, navigation, as well as consumer applications such as child security and monitoring of the elderly.

sensewhere is continuously looking for suitable partners to utilise this capable technology and is soon due to deploy the product for the first time with a South American insurance industry leader.
