Geofencing is a macro-location technology that locates your app users in areas 50 meters or greater in radius.
A geofence is a virtual enclosure that you can set up around a real geographic area, e.g. a store, a street, a parking lot, or a plaza. Your app can become aware of a customer’s location, including arrival, departure and dwell times.
Proximity Beacons are a micro-location technology for areas less than 50 meters in radius.
A proximity beacon marks a radio-based enclosure that you set up around a smaller geographic area; for example, a department within a store, a specific street address, a section of a parking lot, or a landmark in a plaza.
Gimbal uses a low-cost beacon technology based on the Bluetooth® 4.0 Low Energy (BLE) standard, so your app won’t drain your users’ batteries.
With these cutting edge tools integrated in MobileSmith, you can develop all kinds of customer engagement use cases – for retail apps, hospital apps, event apps, sports apps, etc.
