Nrby SmartPins

Revolutionizing Mobile Workforce Collaboration

Location-based collaboration is the heart of Nrby. SmartPins are what make it possible. They’re what transform traditionally haphazard, disparate mobile worker communications into focused, highly actionable and extremely productive team collaboration. They act as portals for real-time sharing, learning, informing and resolving issues that are important to your business.

Think of SmartPins as both markers and intelligent containers that are configurable to meet any location-based situation imaginable. Represented by graphically descriptive icons, and using a simple, intuitive user interface, they show ‘need-to-know’ peers exactly what the issue is, where it is and the rich, contextual information needed to make smart decisions. And what determines ‘need-to-know’ status? Role-based rules and geofencing, which notifies the right people when they enter and/or leave a specified geofenced area.

SmartPins serve as sending and receiving points for event feeds – data collected by mobile workers or generated by machines or internal system. Because SmartPins are configured with customizable data fields, they enforce consistency and clear understanding of the information they convey. And since they are easily accessed via iPhone and Android smartphones or web-based dashboards, they’re readily available wherever people may be.

Use Nrby SmartPins to:

Convey information that is peer-sourced and/or machine-generated

Identify the location and status of situations and events

Synchronize information with centralized systems and databases

Share tribal and situation-specific knowledge

Send geofenced alerts to specific nearby peers based on their role and location

Spur conversations and proactive actions

Each SmartPin that’s dropped can use geofencing, with customizable radiuses, to alert users when they enter the area
