WHY BLUEFOX.IO

.

BlueFox empowers a wide range of companies with high-level analytics regarding foot traffic in their buildings and their open spaces. This information is real time, and delivered online. It tells retail outlets, clubs, restaurants, cities, venues, airports, event managers, sports stadiums, etc. how many people are present in the defined area. It features an app that sends an alert when occupancy reaches the defined limit.

This narrows the client information-gap compared to online shopping. Our brick-and-mortar clients not only know how many people are on their site, but they can also send messages to them instantly on their smartphones. Our technology is way ahead of bluetooth. Our system does not require it. Moreover, customer smartphones do not even need to be connected to the location’s Wi-FI network, nor a specific app to be installed. With BlueFox, you connect with your consumers in their present moment. They welcome your messages because they are time-based, relevant and they opted in before.

ABOUT BLUEFOX

.

BlueFox.io CEO Guillaume de La Tour developed our smartphone-sensing technology with his co-founders after working for 10 years with retail brands in the US, Europe, and the Middle East. He uncovered a weakness in consumer relationships compared with the internet, and resolved to fix the problem.

Guillaume and team launched this new technology in 2015 at retail events in the United States, Japan, and Europe. Following acclaim at CES, numerous US and international awards followed. In June 2016, the French-American Chamber of Commerce of San Francisco named BlueFox.io Startup of the Year and BlueFox began roaring. In 2017 BlueFox.io received the Murphy Award by the Silicon Valley Chamber of Commerce – Sunnyvale for its “Outstanding Retail Technology”. The team now counts more than 20 members.
