GeoFencing

Geofencing is a Location-based Service that allows triggering Campaigns to mobile users that are in or out of a defined virtual perimeter of a real-world geographic area.

A major advantage of using Geo-Fences is that there is no need to preload a Subscription List relevant to the Campaign, as it provides a contextual interaction with mobile users based on their physical location.

Geofencing Use Cases

  • Send a Welcome Message when customers enter a retail store or deliver an Experience Survey when they exit.

  • Provide parking or seating guidance to customers when entering a sports/entertainment venue.
