Nymi Band capabilities extended with deeper insight
Nymi adds real-time location data to its biometric wearable with Quuppa partnership
 

Nymi has partnered with Quuppa to integrate its Real Time Locating System (RTLS) within the wearable Nymi Band’s hardware to combine location information with biometric data and authentication.

Following the start of the collaboration, companies will be able to access detailed location data of workers wearing Nymi Band devices.

The tracking system created by Quuppa uses Bluetooth tags to determine the real-time location of a person or device.

Tags (or Locators) are placed in specific locations, covering the whole working place area, and tracking Nymi Band users with centimeter-level accuracy.

Commenting on the news, Quuppa said the collaboration will now help the company explore new workplace applications requiring real-time location sensing.

“In working with Nymi, we’re able to bring our innovative location sensing system into new industries that require these deeper insights,” said Seth Noone, Regional Vice President at Quuppa.

The thought was echoed by Andrew Foxcroft, Vice President of Nymi, who explained how the move will benefit workers using the Nymi Band.

“To support the growing demand for stronger workplace solutions for active workers, we’re excited to take our innovative wearables to the next level through this partnership with Quuppa,” he said.

The partnership will also foster Nymi’s growth in new vertical markets, such as pharmaceutical manufacturing, where location-based use cases are numerous.

These include virtual fencing, health and safety applications, as well as location analysis to protect workers, facilities, and products.

“Together, we can provide businesses with the real-time insight needed to optimize workspaces for greater identity assurance, security, and better productivity and safety,” Foxcroft concluded.

The partnership with Quuppa follows Nimy’s other expansion efforts this year, including a collaboration with ThinManager on biometric-enabled touchless authentication solutions, and the launch of a partner program to expand wearable biometric authentication use cases.
