With social hotspot®, our customers benefit from the combination of a differentiated, feature- rich digital guest experience with actionable data insights. This digital communication channel can be further expanded upon with Beacon / iBeacon technology. By default, all of our social hotspot® customers are hardware and technology-ready for Beacon / iBeacon.
Beacon / iBeacon can be thought of as a close range communication medium built on Bluetooth standards. Beacons effectively enable location based messaging (“push notifications”) from a “broadcasting device” (e.g. social hotspot® access point) to a “receiver device” (e.g. smartphone).
With our service in place, our customers do not need to search, shop or involve another vendor in regards to Beacon / iBeacon technology.
