iSIGN's Smart Antenna is a commercial quality unit, that is waterproof and fully tested to operate within extreme temperature ranges of -40 to +180 degrees Fahrenheit, that does not involve apps and the related downloads and the requirement to surrender personal and private information in order for messages to be received, viewed and acted upon. There is no cost to the recipient to connect to or receive messages from our solution, as messages are delivered by Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. The information gathered by our Smart Antenna and patented technology is completely anonymous, in that it cannot in any way identify the individual that our technology is interacting with. Some of the information gathered includes the make and model of the mobile device; acceptance or rejection of messages; date, time and location of each interaction; and time spent within range of our system. All of this 'Big Data' is of considerable interest to users of our technology, as well as to data integrators.
