Wellington Drive announces exclusive collaboration with iProximity, an Australian based digital marketing solutions company.
Wellington Drive Technologies is pleased to announce an exclusive partnership with iProximity, an innovative proximity marketing solutions and location intelligence company.
Wellington’s CEO, Greg Allen said; “Following substantial interest from Wellington’s SCS™ customers for solutions that help them engage with consumers, Wellington undertook a global search for an enterprise capable beacon management provider with advanced digital marketing expertise, choosing iProximity as the best platform available. This new partnership will be focused on producing our new ‘Smarter Cooler’ platform by adding iProximity’s powerful contextual marketing technology to our SCS Connect System, giving our customers the ability to move from simple consumer activation to true consumer engagement.
Commercial refrigeration systems fitted with Wellington Drive’s SCS™ Connect refrigeration controller already lead the way in smart cooler technology. The Smarter Cooler concept combines Wellington’s SCS™ Connect System with iProximity’s, iPx™ beacon management platform and other micro-location, contextual digital marketing technology to engage and interact with customers at their point of purchase in front of the cooler.
David Burden, a founder of iProximity, commented, “Together, we can support Wellington’s customers with smarter cooling systems technology that helps them engage with the consumers, communicate their brand message, and sell more food and beverage product.”
The Smarter Cooler’s management system is cloud-based; allowing for the simple management of proximity based marketing campaigns on globally deployed coolers. Selected examples of what a Wellington and iProximity Smarter Cooler platform can offer are:
- Waking a consumer’s phone with a branded message in store with an SCS™ enabled Smarter Cooler
- Delivering contextual, personalised promotions based on consumer purchasing habits
- Delivering partnering opportunities by engaging with retail partner Apps
- Driving messages to digital signage based on who is standing close by
- Building real-time data insights on consumer actions
