Will you be attending the upcoming Internet of Things World Forum (IoTWF) in Chicago?

We're excited to announce that Philip Gerskovich, senior vice president, new growth platforms at Zebra, will be delivering a keynote at the upcoming event. Phil will be presenting on ways the Internet of Things (IoT) will transform the customer experience in a variety of industries. 

“At Zebra, it is our goal to create smart and connected workplaces which give businesses visibility into their operations and allow them to engage their customers at the right level with the right information,” said Gerskovich. “Leading businesses win by giving customers personalized experiences that build relationships, and we believe that IoT is the glue that builds that advanced customer loyalty.”

Additionally at the IoTWF, Zebra will be showcasing our IoT platform, Zatar, in several demonstrations, along with partners Samsung, Gimbal, Impinj and Infusion. These demos will show attendees how IoT can improve business processes and include:
  • A “smart bike” that uses IoT principals to create applications and predict analytics
  • Multiple Samsung Smart Signage Platform displays combined with Gimbal proximity beacons to provide new hyper-location customer experiences in retail, healthcare and events
  • A “smart cooler” that uses RFID tags and Impinj RFID ready inside of it
Euro Beinant, vice president of platform technologies at Zebra, will also host a panel on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Beacon technology. The panel, which consists of executives from Titan, Gimbal, and Infusion, and will aim to share industry insights on the uses, benefits and challenges of both BLE and Beacon technology.

Zebra is looking forward to being a part of IoTWF taking place October 14-16, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Chicago. If you’re attending the event, what are you looking forward to seeing?
