Kloudspot, Inc., makers of the first network-enabled and cloud-based Situational Awareness and Intelligence Platform, today announced it has partnered with Cisco Meraki to help organizations offer safer and smarter workspace experiences for customers and employees.
The Kloudspot Platform and KloudVision™ combine real-time location intelligence and video analytics collected from the Cisco Meraki intuitive cloud-first platform to securely integrate unique safety features - such as occupancy monitoring for social distancing, automated triggers and PPE compliance monitoring.
Additionally, by leveraging Bluetooth®, WiFi, smart cameras, and the power of artificial intelligence (AI), the solution converts the physical actions and movements of people and devices into secure, digitally treatable data to extract meaningful insights. With these insights, organizations can comply with new health and safety requirements and optimize physical spaces to create smarter and safer, hybrid environments that enable real-time virtual and physical collaboration anywhere. Both the Kloudspot Platform and Kloudspot’s KloudVision camera analytics solution can be purchased on the Cisco Meraki Marketplace.
The City of Erie, PA, uses Kloudspot and Cisco Meraki to enable real-time citizen engagement and safety, drive sales for local businesses and deliver advertising revenue to the City via WiFi, digital signage, campaign management and captive portal. Through the combination of the Cisco Meraki platform and the Kloudspot Platform, the City of Erie is able to provide seamless community and workforce experiences for its constituents and employees – including safety alerts and city services payments like waste and recycling.
“One of the most important opportunities of our time is to provide access to fast, secure WiFi for all,” said Guillermo Diaz Jr., Kloudspot CEO. “Combining the power of the Cisco Meraki platform with the Kloudspot Platform, the City of Nuevo Leon, Mexico, through Conectate Nuevo Leon, bridged their ‘digital divide’ by adding WiFi access across more than 450 public points creating safer, more connected citizen experiences. This deployment also facilitates communication across state government agencies and provides alternatives to traditional media by transforming many standard processes.” said Diaz.
“IT leaders are increasingly broadening their scope to address new security risks and today’s emerging safety requirements,” said Juan Vela, Global Head of Market Strategy, Cisco Meraki. “Our partnership with Kloudspot provides our customers with cloud enabled connectivity, security and intelligence technologies to create safer, more connected work, school and community experiences.”
