  "Description": "Imagine catching the train or driving to work without needing your keys or wallet. Imagine entering your office’s secure car park without keying in a passcode. Imagine grabbing your morning coffee or snack from a vending machine without rummaging for change.\n\nWell, there’s no need to imagine anymore. The technology exists. And it’s called Near Field Communication (NFC).\n\nSo, what exactly is NFC?\n\nNFC is a form of contactless communication that allows you to achieve everyday tasks with a quick wave of your smartphone.\n\nDesigned for devices within close proximity, NFC uses electromagnetic radio fields to exchange data from one compatible device to another. No need for them to touch. And no need for users to fumble through multiple steps to set up a connection.\n\nWhy we’re excited about NFC?\n
    \n\t
  • For businesses: NFC technology means faster transaction times. Faster transaction means less waiting in lines. Less waiting in lines means HAPPIER customers!
  • \n\t
  • For consumers: NFC technology means no cards or cash to carry around. No cards or cash to carry around means less chance of lost or stolen items. Less chance of lost or stolen items means leaving the house is less stressful - and a lot more fun!
  • \n
\nHow will NFC change your everyday life?\n\nThere are many ways you will enjoy NFC in your daily life.\n
    \n\t
  • On public transport: Wave your phone to pass through turnstiles. Or tap your phone at an information kiosk for up-to-date schedules and delays.
  • \n\t
  • At the supermarket: Stop to buy groceries, redeem coupons and earn reward points with a single wave at the checkout.
  • \n\t
  • At the movies: Purchase tickets, gain entry to the cinemas and interact with smart posters for information about upcoming films. And before the movie starts, grab your drink and popcorn by waving your phone at the snack counter.
  • \n\t
  • On holiday: Board the plane without a boarding pass. Check in to your hotel without the paperwork. And access hotel rooms without keys or magnetic swipe cards that are easily lost!
  • \n\t
  • Hanging out with friends: Share games, links and other information with friends by bumping phones. You can even send money to each other!
  • \n
\nAnd the list goes on - limited only by the foresight of your technology partner. As the technology grows, more NFC compatible smartphones will be available and more stores will offer NFC card readers for customer convenience.\n\nPlease contact Lior Rauchberger on (03) 9514 6010 or via [email protected]to learn more about NFC and how it can benefit your business.", "DisableForSiteSearch": false, "EnableAMP": false, "Enabled": true, "ExpiryDate": "2099-12-11T11:00:00", "ExternalId": 2936, "Image": "/images/bigstock-Nfc-Near-Field-Communication-543463851.jpg", "ItemCategories": null, "ItemTags": [ "Commercial Technology" ], "MetaDescription": "", "Name": "The tech revolution that will change your life", "OpenGraphProperties": "", "ReleaseDate": "2014-12-14T11:00:00", "SeoPriority": "", "SEOTitle": "", "ShowPageForSearchEngine": true, "SocialMetaTags": "", "UrlSlug": "the-tech-revolution-that-will-change-your-life", "Weighting": 0, "parent": { "id": 1908, "url": "/blog", "parentid": -1, "lastupdateddate": "2019-03-14T02:07:17", "AMPContent": "", "Author": 0, "CanonicalLink": "", "CodeEditor": true, "CreatedByMemberId": 0, "Description": "", "DisableForSiteSearch": false, "EnableAMP": false, "Enabled": true, "ExpiryDate": "2099-12-11T14:21:30.6732117", "ExternalId": 0, "ItemCategories": null, "ItemTags": null, "MetaDescription": "", "Name": "Blog", "OpenGraphProperties": "", "ReleaseDate": "2019-02-26T14:21:30.6732117", "SeoPriority": "", "SEOTitle": "", "ShowPageForSearchEngine": true, "SocialMetaTags": "", "UrlSlug": "blog", "Weighting": 0 }, "params": { "filtersearch": "" } }

We are not a reseller of Pexip; we’re just sold on the idea. It’s a simple software solution that’s affordable and integrates with your existing video conferencing hardware.

\n

It’s cross-platform, completely agnostic and pay per month. It can bridge the gap between video conference systems; such as: Lync and Lifesize, like a bridge.

Pexip is virtualized, so that it can be installed anywhere in the world without the costs normally associated with hardware solutions. You can increase your conferencing capacity and even upgrade your meeting room hardware without tipping the budget.  If we could help you to maximise your budget, we’d suggest you use Pexip and spend the rest on supportive meeting room technologies, such as:

\n

- Audio Upgrades

\n\n
    \n\t
  • Professional microphone systems

  • High end echo cancellation
  • \n
\n

How to create a theatrical experience at your next event

Have you heard of Pepper's Ghost?

‘Pepper's Ghost’, named after John Henry Pepper is an illusion technique.

Most commonly  used in theatre, haunted houses, dark rides – it is now finding popularity in the corporate world. The illusion uses plate glass, Plexiglas or plastic film and lighting techniques to make objects seem to appear or disappear, become transparent, or morph into each other. It is seriously cool to watch and captivating for the audience.

Musion Holographic Projection brings the technology to life using audio visual integration by Urban Intelligence.

Our clients are bringing a theatrical experience to their events, retail and hospitality spaces. The effect is maximised when paired with the right projectors, audio and visual hardware.

Revealed: The No.1 security tip for your business

The presence of security cameras is the number one deterrent for potential intruders. But the police are only interested in one thing; a clear picture of the person or car involved in the security breach. AND not just the car, they want the number plate too.

  "Description": "The presence of security cameras is the number one deterrent for potential intruders. But the police are only interested in one thing; a clear picture of the person or car involved in the security breach. AND not just the car, they want the number plate too.\n\nIt’s specific and detailed; the kind of detail you can only get from digital cameras;\n\nIf you have old analogue cameras that are not working, low resolution, not monitored or unable to alert you to potential intruders – you’re putting your business at risk.\n\nThe first step towards having effective digital surveillance is to DIGITIZE your current analogue cameras. The next step would be to monitor your footage in real-time.\n\nDigital cameras offer many benefits to your business. However, they need to be configured properly to maximise their value. A professionally set-up digital camera solution provides the best security available with clear digital pictures and the option of real-time alerts of potential threats through 24/7 monitoring.\n\nWe use and recommend AXIS digital cameras. For low-light areas and night surveillance we suggest an AXIS camera with the new Lightfinder technology. See the difference with and without Lightfinder in this video – and decide for yourself which one you’d prefer to have on your premises.\n\nWE RECOMMEND: upgrading or installing new digital cameras with Lightfinder technology and 24/7 monitoring of your premises. Give us a call on (03) 9514 6000 or email us on [email protected] for a free security audit of your home, office or school and a copy of our security capabilities.",

No. 1:

\nSituation:\nYou need to recruit from interstate or overseas – are you flying your HR to meet the candidate? Or are you flying the candidate to your office?\n\nDON’T GET ON THAT PLANE\n\nSolution:\nMeet with the candidate via video hook up. Urban Intelligence can implement a video conferencing solution that has high definition picture and crystal clear audio.\n

No. 2:

\nSituation:\nYou need to brief your national sales team on the priorities for the month. You normally travel around the country or bring the entire team to Head Office.\n\nDON’T GET ON THAT PLANE\n\nSolution:\nBring the team together without the travel costs, accommodation, time and expenses, through video conferencing.\n

No. 3:

\nSituation:\nDo you need to ensure project milestones are being met by your interstate contractors?\n\nDON’T GET ON THAT PLANE\n\nSolution:\nMeet with your project team through video conferencing.

  "Description": "Moving offices can be incredibly stressful and cause a loss in productivity and downtime, if not planned and executed well. Here are our top 5 tips to help you to move offices, smoothly. We know because we just moved offices ourselves.\n\n\n\nTip 1: Do a technology audit – what technology can you take with you? What do you need to invest in? Call in a technology consultant to help you to do this. They can run through your audio visual, security and lighting needs. We did it for ourselves, because that’s one of our fortes.\n\nTip 2: Move to the cloud – could you save on infrastructure by moving your networking, telephone and data storage to the cloud? It can be a good cost saving to your business, a great way to protect your data and scalable without additional infrastructure. We did it and it is working well for us.\n\nTip 3: First impressions count – take the time to plan the office space and design. We brought in an interior designer to fit out our meeting spaces, the entrance and design the storage and shelving in each office. It’s a good way to ensure all your spaces are well utilised and functional. We matched this with a review and redesign of our logo and collateral. If you are reprinting your letterheads, business cards etc… to incorporate your new address, why not refresh your brand, if its been a while.\n\nTip 4: Create some work and play spaces – help your staff to enjoy their time at work by adding some small touches, such as zoned music with Sonos. This will give your staff the opportunity to program music that they like to hear at the touch of a button from their PC. The warehouse, office and kitchen can all have different music programmed to suit the staff’s tastes. A coffee machine is another clever addition; it will keep your staff onsite and is the new ‘water cooler’ meeting place.\n\nTip 5: Tell people where to find you – write a comprehensive list of how people interact with you and how and when you will let them know of your move. Ensure that your mail redirection is scheduled and keep current until you have notified all your clients and suppliers of your change of address. If you need help with service redirection, we can do that during a technology audit.\n\nGood luck with your move. Ours is complete and we are all still sane! It helps to plan it well and manage it as you would any project.",

  "Description": "As a Facilities Manager you know that data is king! Data in real-time and accessible via your mobile device is the Holy Grail. Mobile devices and associated technology is a great tool for Facilities Managers particularly for asset management and field collaboration.\n\nBy embracing cloud and mobile based technology you can effectively run a true 24-7-365 system without having to be chained to your office desk.\n\nIf your objective is to reduce costs, improve efficiency and protect your facility then we suggest that you use this simple checklist. It will help to determine if you have the optimal technology running at your facility.\n
    \n\t
  • Can you control the building’s lighting and security system from your mobile device?
  • \n\t
  • Do you have easy access to reports on energy consumption in the building?
  • \n\t
  • Is reporting on your building energy performance a simple task? Can it help you to make comparisons between different departments of your company?
  • \n\t
  • Are you able to receive email alerts if your security system has been breached?
  • \n\t
  • Do you have remote access to your security cameras on your computer or mobile device?
  • \n\t
  • Can you program various functions of the building to automatically turn on and off as required?
  • \n
\nAs a Facilities Manager having information in real-time gives you the power to make better decisions and take decisive action when required. Technology should be part of the strategic planning of your facility. But, with the pace of technology change in Facilities Management quite high – it’s hard to stay on top of the latest trends.\n\nA complete audit of your current technology is a good first step and actually easier than you might think. At Corporate Intelligence we can do this for you as part of our no-cost consultancy service. It’s all part of the process and can help you to see the benefits of embracing new technology.\n\nFor more ideas on how you can use technology to improve your facility, we’d be happy to meet with you onsite and provide some advice.
