Rights to the company's flagship software were snapped up by US-based Alliance Tech in a deal allowing the two companies to cross-licence their respective products. Now, Alliance can use the Fish real-time measurement system alongside its own more passive technology.The real-time location (RTL) system flaunted by Fish Software is hardware-heavy: it requires each visitor to carry a badge with its own battery, which must be collected again when the visitor leaves. The venue also needs to be fitted with a system of receptors and other hardware. In fact, Fish made a strategic withdrawal from the UK after venues were slow to take up the expensive hardware installations necessary to make the system work.Alliance's flagship radio frequency identification (RFID) system, on the other hand, is passive where Fish was active: badges do not need to be individually powered and can be taken out of the venue or thrown away. While the range of the badges is only about 15 feet, the venue doesn't need the extra infrastructure to use the technology. Similar to no-touch card reader systems used by banks and public transport authorities in some countries, each badge would have an individual digital 'fingerprint' that could be picked up by sensors or scanned by stand staff. Using the unique digital signature, one could call up information about the visitor including but not nearly limited to preferred language, sector, company and potentially even buying history, or which other stands the person has visited. For example, if you bought a BMW seven years ago and walk on to the BMW stand at the Geneva International Motor Show, the on-stand salesperson would know to approach you. This could also be used by organisers to alert exhibitors on an iPad or laptop whenever a hosted buyer entered the stand.For the organiser, the real-time nature of the technology can let them see where visitors are crowding, and respond in an instant by, for example, moving a drinks stand to draw visitors through emptier areas. Exhibitor teams could be alerted to areas experiencing a high concentration of powerful buyers and send a delegation to approach them. No strings attachedWireless technology could hold the key to huge amounts of exhibition data, improving visitor and exhibitor experience and helping the organiser make sales.
