RECO Manager, currently in pre-order, is an innovative beacon management product that connects to and manages all the beacons within its range. As long as you install each RECO Beacon within range of a RECO Manager, you will be able to log on from anywhere and use the web-based RECO Cloud Console to remotely manage your entire beacon system, no matter how large or how far flung.
If you are currently running a beacon service, the benefits of using RECO Manager will come to you immediately just by reading the general description above. However, if you are currently exploring the possibility of implementing a beacon system, you might wonder why RECO Manager is needed and whom it will benefit most.
Why is RECO Manager needed?
Currently, without RECO Manager, continuous onsite maintenance is required to provide a reliable beacon service. There is no way to know whether a beacon is low on battery, physically damaged, or even stolen without being present at the installation point. Also, if you want to change the configuration settings of each beacon, the maintenance crew has to change each beacon manually within the beacon’s signal range. These beacon management issues cause high maintenance costs and are the major reasons why many businesses are hesitant on implementing a beacon system.
RECO Manager is a product that solves such management issues. When installed together with RECO Beacon, it allows managers to remotely monitor all the beacons within the RECO Manager’s range and change configurations when needed. With RECO Manager’s powerful beacon management functions, the cost of maintaining a beacon system is drastically reduced making RECO Manager a game changer.
Whom is RECO Manager for?
RECO Manager’s core benefits are best utilized in remote/large scale beacon services. Below are some examples of when you should consider installing a RECO Manager.
1. You need to remotely manage beacons
If you don’t have an onsite maintenance crew to monitor the beacon service status daily, the web-based RECO Cloud Console will benefit you greatly. You can access the Cloud Console from anywhere with any device with access to the internet and monitor the beacons. What’s even better is, since RECO Manager will notify you by e-mail in case a maintenance issue occurs, you actually don’t even need to log-in daily.
2. You have multiple venues in different locations and want to manage all the beacons synchronously
If you are a business manager for a national or even worldwide retail store chain, maintaining a high service level at each store is going to be difficult. Every in-store manager has to be trained to monitor the beacons installed and respond according to the different maintenance issue. By installing RECO Managers at every store, maintaining the beacon service becomes a one man job, and in-store managers are only needed when beacons need to be replaced with new ones. Replacing beacons are simple as well. The in-store manager doesn’t need to configure or register each beacon since RECO Manager detects and registers new beacons automatically, while configuration can be done with a few clicks from the Cloud Console.
3. You have a big venue with a large fleet of beacons
Installing and managing a beacon system for large venues such as a museum or a sports stadium is a lot of work. Hundreds of beacons can be installed in a single large venue, making service monitoring a nightmare for the maintenance crew. By installing RECO Managers at the central points, monitoring hundreds of beacons can be done in a heartbeat.
4. You want to integrate the beacon management functions into an existing management system
RECO Manager comes with the RECO Cloud API for easy system integration. If you already have a management system such as CRM, CMS, or a PMS and want to integrate the beacon management functions provided by the RECO Cloud Console, RECO Manager is your solution.
