All of NextBee's programs extend from the powerful pillars of the PACE methodology. An approach that creates value for any business by offering an action-oriented perspective on how best to engage with customers during every interaction. In short, the methodology creates and increases value between businesses and their customers.

PACE- Personal. Adaptive. Controlled. Exciting.

A program that exhibits all these values gathers momentum quickly and creates long-term engagement. NextBee's Customer Referral Program establishes a personal connection with customers easily by making businesses vocal and communicative. The ability to interact with customers and respond to their needs develops loyal customers.

The program is structured to easily adapt to the changing needs of your customers. Focused attention on customer activity allows you to discover which incentives motivate your customers most effectively. Incentives and rewards can be adjusted to match customer preferences, which creates more customer engagement than before, at every stage. This leads businesses to realize their goals through adaptability in any given market.

Since every customer is different, NextBee offers businesses the freedom and ability to match rewards according to the length of customer association and their needs. You can easily credit points, provide sharable discount coupons, offer social badges and more - the possibility to mix and match rewards is almost endless.

Smart Controls offer complete control over the program dynamics, allowing businesses to regulate every aspect of the customer referral program with ease. Viral media embedded with tracking links for your customers and telephone sales tracking for your employees each offer detailed information on customer reach and sharability.

The flexibility to change rewards also generates specific responses from program users. The possibility of achieving desired results is enormous.

Empowering your referrers also opens up opportunities to trigger scalable activities. Referral program participants can capitalize on their network on each of their social media platform and track referrals on their own, while the business that runs the program can monitor referrals and regulate incentives.

The program stays exciting through promotional sweepstakes and contests, incentives and rewards that keep program users engaged and encourage more activity - just what a business needs for driving greater customer engagement. The scope of rewarding extends beyond physical objects and cash prizes. NextBee's Customer Referral Program users can be motivated through social badges and levels that serve to boost their social recognition. Dynamic program leaderboards motivate participants to keep up their social standing and gain more reward points. Activity can further be accelerated by creating milestones that encourage participants to not just be more active themselves, but to also engage their network.

NextBee's customer referral program is seamlessly integrated with the leading CRM systems - Salesforce, NetSuite and Microsoft Dynamics. The CRM integrated customer referral program allows easy tracking of customer activity. Businesses that are aware of their customers' needs stay ahead of their competition.

The customer referral program is built on the best of the breed technology platform:

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The security needs of IoT environments require a strong, proven approach to maintain security, trust and privacy in their ecosystem. Assurance and protection of device identity, secure data encryption and authentication are the key security challenges organizations are trying to address when integrating IoT devices. This holds true for IoT applications in a wide range of industries, for example, healthcare, consumer devices, and manufacturing. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lancen LaChance, vic...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data. Data science stands to take this to a level you never thought of – literally. The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead ...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
WebRTC is bringing significant change to the communications landscape that will bridge the worlds of web and telephony, making the Internet the new standard for communications. Cloud9 took the road less traveled and used WebRTC to create a downloadable enterprise-grade communications platform that is changing the communication dynamic in the financial sector. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Leo Papadopoulos, CTO of Cloud9, discussed the importance of WebRTC and how it enables companies to focus o...
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
