My City – Using touché Smart City solutions to grow your business
Smart Cities and how they will define the future
A ‘Smart City’ is one that increasingly uses convenient personal devices to actively engage its citizens. The concept is becoming more and more popular in the UK and across Europe, where transport companies, city councils and local businesses are using Near Field Communications (NFC) and Bluetooth Smart technologies to allow people to navigate their worlds and purchase services directly through their smartphones.
In this mobile centric world, the possibilities for transforming our cities are endless:
Public transport passengers can find service information and buy tickets, based on where they’re located and previously stored information about where they want to go and how they prefer to travel; then they can share this information with their social media contacts
Disabled users can find retailers and other service providers which will cater for their particular needs, efficiently and discreetly
People on a night out can find the nearest pub which sells their favourite beer
The common factors enabling all these are: secure mobile apps, the smartphone’s interaction with its immediate environment; and a back office database which records user preferences. touché has all three vital elements and is leading the way in developing practical solutions that help you take advantage of NFC and Bluetooth Smart beacons to develop your business or enterprise.
