The Gimbal™ platform enables brands, retailers and venues to engage customers with relevant, timely and personalized content to their mobile devices which can drive customer engagement, sales and loyalty. At the same time Gimbal is designed to respect consumer privacy.
Gimbal proximity beacons complement GPS by allowing devices and applications to derive their proximity to beacons at a micro-level not currently afforded by GPS technology on consumer devices. When it’s within physical proximity to the beacon and detects it, the app can notify the customer of location-relevant content, promotions, and offers.
You can use a combination of Gimbal Geofencing and Proximity with Gimbal Bluetooth® Smart beacons to provide users relevant content as they enter both macro locations and micro locations. Two types of beacons are available. The Series 10 (blue) are small form factor beacons. The Series 20 (silver/white) is an industrial design for indoor/outdoor use. Our beacons have configuration flexibility which provide the opportunity to support many different deployment use-cases. Depending on the desired use-cases, our beacons have a battery life of many months to many years. To cover large locations both radial and polygonal geofences are supported.
