What do they say?

Mobile engagement from any speaker to any mobile device.

What does this mean? 

Retailers are always trying to engage with consumers.

The best way to achieve consumer engagement is to engage with the consumer’s mobile. The problem: While retailers have multiple platforms – Radio/TVs/Digital Screens/E-commerce websites/vending machines – all interfacing the consumer, they don’t have a way to engage with the consumer’s mobile through these platforms.

Looking closely at those platforms they all have a very common & simple denominator – they simply all have a speaker.

DOV-E uses its patent pending mobile SDK to enable mobile engagement to any mobile, using any speaker from any platform (even from non-connected platforms).

DOV-E’s main applications are Mobile Payment (short range ultrasonic communication – Near Field Communications like) and Mobile Promotion (long-range – Bluetooth Low Energy like) solutions. DOV-E’s technology provides wireless connectivity in the proximity between any consumer’s mobile device and any merchant’s endpoint device using the ubiquitous speakers.

What makes your company different from its competitors? 

1. DOV-E is the only company to provide both short distance (20 cm) ultrasonic communication useful for payment/login/authentication and long distance (15 m) ultrasonic communication useful for send promotion and notifications.

2. DOV-E long distance ultrasonic communication is working on the background of the mobile device leaving the consumer completely passive (all they need to do is accept the update to the app and that’s it).
