Below is a sample of ZOS’ core capabilities for the automation of business processes and communications through contextual awareness and triggering for mobile devices.
Location Determination – ZOS provides highly accurate and reliable location by transforming mobile devices into context-aware sensors. ZOS’ hybrid approach leverages all available sensor data at given location, including GPS/A-GPS, cell tower location (Cell ID), Wi-Fi, and 3rd party or carrier network resources.
Geofencing - ZOS’ powerful and flexible geofencing engine allows devices to interact with the environment around them. Geofences, virtual boundaries placed around points of interest, are the building blocks of contextual triggering. ZOS allows users to define geofences in a variety of ways to suit nearly any enterprise use case—radius-defined circles, complex polygons or through imported shape files from third party systems.
Geo-coding and Reverse Geo-coding - ZOS offers comprehensive geocoding and reverse geocoding capabilities. Incorporated into the Geofencing Suite, ZOS can provide a latitude/longitude for a physical address and vice-versa. Bundling this essential capability into the system eliminates additional complexity for carriers, aggregators, and developers deploying context aware solutions.
Contextual Triggers - ZOS’ contextual triggers are a powerful means to automate business processes based on a device’s proximity to a geofence or point of interest, other another device or group of devices, speed of travel and more. The use cases are endless.
Context-automated Actions - The true value of geofencing and contextual triggering is found in the actions that occur at a precise context-relevant moment, automating business processes, enhancing efficiency, information relevancy and saving valuable time. ZOS provides the ability to deliver email, ZOS geo-messages, 3rd party system notifications and commands, and actions on the triggering device (e.g., launching an application or web browser.)
Location Enablement for 3rd Party Systems - The Hybrid Location Solution’s server architecture provides location for external systems. Because it runs over the top of existing network infrastructure it allows enterprises to leverage prior investments in IT resources and places no additional demands on carrier assets.
