Leading Edge Fan Manufacturer

Technologies Utilized

iOS

Android OS

Summary

As a leader in the fan industry, this fan manufacturing company wanted to add an option to their fans that no other company offered. While many fans come with a remote control, this fan manufacturing company wanted an app that allowed users to use their cell phones as a remote to operate the fan and fan light via Bluetooth technology. It needed to operate the fan, the fan speed, the fan light, and the light intensity. It would be a free application available for the Iphone and for Android phones.

Benefits

The development of the app places this fan manufacturing company in the position of being one of the first companies to offer a cell phone app to control a ceiling fan. It injects forward thinking and differentiates them from other fan companies. They are now placed for strategic growth, securing contracts because of this technology with major retailers.

“Guilford Group has built numerous systems for us over the years that help us to more effectively run our business. Often times we prefer to have Guilford Group build exactly what we need so our people don’t have to sift through screen after screen to get what they want as they would with off-the-shelf software. In addition, there are no maintenance fees, no need to hire and train our own technical or internal development team. We just tell Guilford Group what we need and they make it for us. It is just that simple.”
