Boston -- Swirl Networks, provider of an enterprise-class beacon marketing platform, announced that it has entered into a strategic relationship with Motorola Solutions. The two companies will work together in the areas of product, sales and services to support iBeacon technology rollouts in large-scale retail environments.
This announcement follows the recent unveiling of Motorola's MPact Platform for Mobile Marketing, which leverages Swirl to power the beacon marketing capabilities for its indoor locationing platform.
The collaboration creates a number of immediate benefits for retailers including:
• Swirl and Motorola will jointly sell Swirl's beacon-based in-store mobile marketing platform as a standalone product as well as in conjunction with Motorola MPact, a unified indoor locationing platform that leverages both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® Smart technology.
• Swirl's platform will be fully integrated with Motorola's Bluetooth Smart Beacons, providing retailers with the option of purchasing beacons from an established retail partner, while taking advantage of Swirl's industry-leading cloud platform for creating, managing and analyzing in-store mobile marketing campaigns.
• Motorola will offer the MPact platform and beacon installation and servicing to Swirl customers. This service option will allow retailers to leverage Motorola's nationwide Services team for rapid deployment of large-scale beacon networks spanning thousands of retail locations.
Swirl's beacon-powered mobile marketing platform gives retailers the ability to engage shoppers with personalized digital content and offers while they shop in stores. Alex and Ani, Kenneth Cole and Timberland have deployed Swirl's beacon technology in stores.
