SWIVIO is a location-based mobile marketing platform for businesses that drives higher revenues and helps them ride the wave to loyalty success. SWIVIO app empowers businesses to send (and consumers to receive) notifications, data, coupons, promotions and offers using Apple’s latest iBeacon and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technologies.
iBeacon is the name of an Apple trademarked technology for an indoor positioning system that runs on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), also known as Bluetooth Smart. Apple calls this technology a new class of low-powered, low-cost transmitters that can notify nearby devices of their presence. They can also be used by the Android operating system as well. The technology enables an iOS device or other hardware to send push notifications to iOS devices in close proximity.
In June 2013, Apple introduced the iBeacon specification and went on to officially announce it in September as a part of iOS7. Though any iOS7 device supporting Bluetooth Smart can act as a beacon, the term “iBeacon” does not refer to hardware. Rather, iBeacon is a trademarked term that refers to a set of software protocols developers use to build beacon experiences, specifically how to define and monitor the area around a beacon.
Swivio app (available at Google play store and Apple Store) provides location-targeted messaging and vouchers regarding exclusive offers, promotions and event for connected Android and iPhone shoppers. The app allows shoppers to redeem offers or download vouchers directly via their mobile device and save on their purchase.
SWIVIO uses beacon technology to connect consumers & local merchants for a personal, mutually beneficial experience. The geo-targeted messaging allows merchants to reach nearby consumers and provide them with discounts and special incentives to shop. Swivio helps small and medium businesses succeed and increase customer loyalty there by growing their sales.
