CCI SmartBiz Event Wows in Omaha


Last week, CCI hosted the first-ever SmartBiz event in Omaha, Neb. This event showed attendees how businesses can use cutting-edge technology and smart integrations to satisfy their customers. To help celebrate the day, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts proclaimed Wednesday, May 1, as “SmartBiz Omaha Day, powered by Cox.”

Exploring Opportunities
Imagine being a retail business owner and having the ability to count how many people walk by your products, how many times those products are picked up and when they need to be restocked. It would be a game-changer. CCI is helping municipalities and businesses of all sizes explore opportunities to become better connected with the demands of a growing community.

Empowering a Community
Guests enjoyed a hands-on look at how Cox is helping smart businesses and empowering them to grow.

  • Cox Business showcased smartphone integration, voice-activated office technology and WiFi management systems to enhance customer experiences.
  • The University of Nebraska Medical Center showcased a hologram, augmented and virtual reality that are part of its visionary learning program.

  • Cox2M and Smart City shared how data collected in the areas of transportation, public safety, connected resources and smart agriculture can allow community leaders and business owners to make better decisions.
