GeoPush

Geo Push is a Location-based service that allows the triggering of a campaign that is targeted to mobile users currently within a defined virtual perimeter for a real-world geographic area.

Contrary to how a GeoFence works, a GeoPush campaign is not triggered by the movement of the mobile user (entering or exiting an area) but rather if they are physically at the location at the moment of the campaign launch.

A major advantage of using the GeoPush feature is that it provides a contextual interaction with mobile users based on their current physical location.
