Factory Berlin is an accelerator space that brings together the best startups and international tech companies, sets them up under one roof and provides them with an outstanding workplace, inspiring events, and an involved community of founders and supporters.

The BeaconControl platform allows Factory to deploy beacons instantly and create a technology-enabled workspace without having to building an expansive backend.

Beacons managed by BeaconControl enhance the Factory experience by adding hands-free check-ins and payments, contextual content delivery, indoor navigation, access control and much more.

The BeaconControl platform also empowers the Factory community to design their own proximity-driven reality by providing open source api’s and sdk’s.
