SEATTLE, April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Level 11, a firm known for its Customer Experience Management work with global theme parks and, more recently, with Carnival Corporation's One Cruise Experience Access Network (OCEAN) Medallion project, has partnered with IoT platform provider Sirqul.
Mark Hadland, Level 11 CEO states, "Our partnership with Sirqul allows us to accelerate our ability to provide experience design solutions for our clients. Custom solutions can take a long time to design and develop. Sirqul has developed a flexible set of APIs that allows Level 11 to focus on the end user experience rather than the underlying technology. Additionally, we see many opportunities where a subscription based deal is preferable to a traditional licensing deal. Sirqul's cloud-based model allows us to pursue these opportunities and to provide our solutions to a broader set of customers."
Robert Frederick, founder and CEO of Sirqul, has been focused on connected communities, devices, people, and businesses for over 23 years. Frederick is an MIT Technology Review Magazine TR 100 award winner, author of 33 patents, and technical co-founder of Amazon Anywhere and Amazon Web Services (AWS). With a strong engineering lineage of disrupting traditional software business models, Sirqul's full stack IoT platform is poised to have a profound impact on smart building innovations and communities.
"We envision smart buildings becoming the epicenter of IoT platforms and enabling the creation of new future-proof ecosystems that our partners will continue to build applications and experiences upon," said Frederick. "Together with Level 11, we will challenge the meaning of the 'Internet of Things' and redefine IoT as the 'Intelligence of Things', launching solutions that will inspire and engage consumers in new meaningful ways."
Sirqul's IoT Suite of Solutions:
- Elexi – home and building automation with a community connection
- Aileen – enables retailers to turn visitors into loyal customers
- Einstein – transforms entertainment venues into captivating experiences
- Edison – smart mesh network of devices for accurate location and intelligence at the edge
- Route N Roll – optimizes fleets with advanced routing and telematics
- Astro – automates industrial operations and enables remote operation of robots, drones and machinery
- Magellan – a drag, drop, orchestrate and deploy tool with access to over 70 APIs, services and libraries
Hadland states "This partnership allows us to jointly pursue the smart building and connected environment space. Our focus is to work with leading architecture and design firms, providing them with new tools and technology that they can embed in their designs. Our vision is to imbue the underlying building infrastructure with presence-aware and information processing technology so that building occupants can benefit from the same personalized experiences that we have provided to our other customers and from new experiences enabled by the technology. The result will be an Internet-of-Things platform that will allow us and other partners to build new applications and experiences focused on specific vertical markets. Key sectors of focus will be hospitality, theme parks, sports, and stadiums, healthcare and hospitals, corporate campuses."
