Proxee is a patented end-to-end proximity marketing platform that allows our clients to send rich multimedia content to mobile devices in real-time using proprietary beacon hardware, with full compliance and support with Apple’s iBeacon™ and Google’s Eddystone™ frameworks– all on top of three different technologies: Geofencing, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Sonic Audio (patented Ultrasonic technology).

PROXEE: An end-to-end solution

Our solution provides you these components:

Beacons (iBeacon™ and Eddystone™ compliant)

Beacons are small devices that emit Bluetooth signals, which can be recognized by latest-generation smartphones, across both Android and iOS. A beacon can trigger content between ranges of 20cm up to 70m. Our beacon hardware is completely unique in that most of our form factors also broadcast Sonic Audio™, an ultra-high frequency audio tone that is inaudible to the human ear– this signal that allows you to reach and engage with older smartphones, and/or users that have disabled Bluetooth.

Ultrasound (Sonic Audio™)

Our signal is inaudible to the human ear (Sonic Audio technology patents), and can be sent by our proprietary beacons (in conjunction with the BLE signals) or through the existing audio systems (i.e. in-store radio, television, digital signage, etc.). The signal is picked up by devices’ microphones. This proprietary technology increases the number of reachable users by 50%, thereby covering 95% of smartphones.

Geofence

Geofence technology allows you to message a user 800 meters from a store even when the app is off (using the Location Services of a device– GPS is NOT required), with to generate additional store traffic.

Push notifications

Thanks to our proprietary CMS, you can send push notifications and create HTML5 content to match. Tapping on the push notification will open the app displaying the content of interest.

Targeting

The targeting engine catalogs users according to rules that can be specified as desired, such as age, loyalty, frequency of purchase; all in accordance to the data available for the user's profile, without having to resort to pre-defined or pre-packaged solutions.

HTML5 contents

Our CMS creates mini websites in HTML5 format, employing responsive design, which means that you can send different types of web content such as coupons, contests, flyers, videos, data sheets, invitations events, etc.

CMS

Proxee Studio: an integrated and easy-to-use tool with which you can create any type of content and schedule it onto your mobile app.

SDK

The Software Development Kit is available for iOS and Android and is easily integrated, with only 3 lines of code. It allows any application to interact with our platform.

Analytics

Each activity is monitored by our analytics engine. For each content you can see how many people have received it, when they did, where and how long it has been viewed, integrated with demographic data provided when the user creates their profile. The tool provides access to very important measurements: how many times the mobile app goes near the shop, how long it stays in front of the window, how often it enters the store, how long the user dwells, and more).

Cloud platform

The Cloud platform frees you from the burden of monitoring and maintaining an efficient solution. Everything is managed by our staff, who have a 360-degree view, and can provide quick support. The platform will be accessible to all users from the data center that is closest to them, ensuring high download speeds and a better user experience.
