Swirl Networks, Inc. Key Developments

Swirl Networks, Inc. and Motorola Solutions, Inc. Join Forces to Power Beacon Marketing

Swirl Networks, Inc. announced that it has entered into a strategic relationship with Motorola Solutions, Inc. The two companies will work together in the areas of product, sales and services to support iBeacon technology rollouts in large-scale retail environments. This announcement follows the recent unveiling of Motorola's MPact Platform for Mobile Marketing, which leverages Swirl to power the beacon marketing capabilities for its indoor locationing platform. Together, Swirl and Motorola Solutions will offer retailers the most scalable enterprise-class beacon marketing solution that is currently available in the market. The collaboration creates a number of immediate benefits for retailers including: Swirl and Motorola will jointly sell Swirl's beacon-based in-store mobile marketing platform as a standalone product as well as in conjunction with Motorola MPact, a unified indoor locationing platform that leverages both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth(R) Smart technology. Swirl's platform will be fully integrated with Motorola's Bluetooth(R) Smart Beacons, providing retailers with the option of purchasing beacons from an established retail partner, while taking advantage of Swirl's cloud platform for creating, managing and analyzing in-store mobile marketing campaigns. Motorola will offer the MPact platform and beacon installation and servicing to Swirl customers. This service option will allow retailers to leverage Motorola's nationwide Services team for rapid deployment of large-scale beacon networks spanning thousands of retail locations.

Swirl launched the first software platform specifically designed to attract and influence in-store shoppers with micro-targeted digital content and real-time, personalized offers delivered to consumers' smartphones while they shop. The Swirl In-Store Mobile Marketing Platform enables retailers to quickly and efficiently make mobile phones an engaging and value-added part of the in-store shopping experience for consumers. Alex and Ani, Timberland, Kenneth Cole, The Blues Jean Bar, Scott James, and Exhale Spa are among the first retailers to deploy the new technology at their retail stores in New York and Boston starting immediately. The Swirl platform combines a next-generation, web-based marketing console with proprietary Bluetooth(R) based sensors and mobile apps to help retailers engage with consumers while they shop. With the platform, retailers are able to drive store traffic, understand the preferences and behaviors of in-store shoppers, and increase retail purchase rates. The in-store experience can be delivered to consumers through the Swirl app or as an add-on to retailers' existing mobile apps.
