Forge Media + Design (Toronto) has been named a preferred partner for HP Enterprise's mobile wayfinding app program.
Forge will partner with Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, to develop apps for Aruba’s Meridian SDKs and Aruba Beacons, a suite of tools that unlocks a new world of mobile wayfinding and other location-based experiences.
“Partnering with Aruba allows us to push the envelope for how technology interacts with people in architectural spaces,” says Gregory Neely, Forge founding principal.
“The Aruba Meridian App Platform provides us with a powerful tool that allows us to craft functionally beautiful apps for organizations to engage with their customers and effectively communicate to build lasting loyalty.”
The Aruba Mobile Engagement system, powered by Aruba Beacons and the Meridian Mobile App platform, has improved customer satisfaction in such diverse organizations as Levi’s Stadium and Orlando International Airport. By directly interacting with customers via their mobile devices based on the customers’ in-venue location and their personalized preferences, Aruba Mobile Engagement is designed to enhance customer experiences and revenue opportunities for the venue operators.
Forge and Aruba are currently working together on a large-scale app project that will encompass over 3 million sq. ft. of a major hospital; launch is expected in Spring 2016.
