2012 tibbr GEO - Augmented reality in enterprise social network

Tibbr - is one of the enterprise twitter-clones, created by Tibco. And it has to compete with such services as Yammer, Salesforce Chatter, IBM Connections, NewsGator and dozens of others. In these circumstances - it's not enough to make a quality product - you need to jump over your head. That's what Tibco is doing. The new feature - Tibbr GEO - is an enterprise geo-location service with augmented reality elements. How does it work? Imagine doctor coming to patient's room - he takes out his smartphone, opens Tibbr and sees the history of messages about this patient, posted by his colleagues. Or airport agent coming to a gate sees that it's closed - he opens Tibbr, and finds out that the flight was moved to another gate. Or engineer comes into the work shop, looks at the machines through his smartphone and sees that one machine has low oil, and another has broken part.

Its interesting, that objects checked-in by any employees in the geo-service - become the social network participants, and one can subscribe to their updates. For example, the engineer can subscribe for updates of the broken machine, and will receive a notification as soon as it's repaired.
