Dreamforce, the annual software conference held by Salesforce in San Francisco, is the Coachella of IT, with thousands of attendees and an industry all-star lineup. This year’s edition kicked off this week and is particularly exciting for us due to the widespread use of Estimote Beacons. Acumen Solutions is a Dreamforce Platinum Sponsor and is unveiling their Connect! app for iOS and Android.
Acumen Solutions is a leading enterprise-grade cloud solutions company who decided to integrate a gamification element to their beacon rollout at Dreamforce. They set up beacons at their booths, partner booths, and in additional meeting spaces and events. Each beacon is associated with specific sessions or events. The Connect! app will not only help you locate these key places but also allow you to earn badges for visiting. There’s huge value and incentive in utilizing the Acumen Connect! app: the more badges you collect, the better your chances of winning a guitar signed by Bruno Mars!
Most importantly, Connect! provides users with a mobile guide to one of the biggest annual tech events in the world. You can find out more about specific events, bookmark sessions and, thanks to Estimote Beacons, find your away around the venues. And that’s still not everything from Acumen and Estimote at this year’s Dreamforce! They have just launched their SmartStore platform, which integrates iBeacon with Salesforce CRM. The goal is to create the most powerful omnichannel and analytics tool for retailers. Find out more in the video below.
