Flic and Microsoft Flow - Taking Flows into the physical world with Flic buttons!

In a recent blog post written by the Flic.io team they talk about testing out their new product The Flic Hub and about how you can now connect Flic buttons without the need to pair to a smart phone.

 

Here are a few standout sections from the article about Microsoft Flow:

 

Instead of developing features for each idea that we had, (which we yet didnt know would be attractive or not), we made the Hub compatible with Microsoft Flow, the latest contribution to automated workflows. Only by integrating Microsoft Flow, we could easily enable 100+ services for the Hub.

 

 

Flow allowed us to to be agile and test almost any request coming in from our sales pipe, without losing speed on our overall roadmap for the Hub.

 

The article then goes on to talk about a real world test scenario where the Flic team deployed a hub, a series of buttons and then connected the actions all with Microsoft Flow. 

 

One of the first live pilots we did was at Berghs School of Communications graduation show, AddX. We placed Beta hubs strategically on three different floors and set up Flic buttons in proximity to various exhibitions. Visitors interactions with the buttons were captured in a Google Sheet through Microsoft Flow and linked to a Dashboard where the organizers could follow the visitors feedback.

We recorded more than 1000 interactions over the 3-day event, and we received a lot of constructive input from both visitors and the organizers.
