ProxiHost

WHAT IT IS

ProxiHost is a proximity-based virtual concierge mobile app that allows an anchor business (e.g. hotel, fitness club), or an entity targeting a community retail network such as a retailer's association, to promote a group of related businesses.

Users create an interest profile and when physically near a matching business, a mobile notification for that business triggers.

ProxiHost allows for serendipitous business discovery by consumers, and thus is the perfect complement to internet search as target customers do not need to know the business in advance. It can also be combined with ProxiPass and ProxiScreen to offer additional opportunities for customer engagement as part of our customer engagement staircase concept. For more information about this concept, read this blogpost.

BENEFITS

    Participating businesses benefit from the customer base of a non-competing anchor businesses. Think of a hotel promoting local restaurants,or a fitness club promoting local sports stores.
    Simple subscription plan, no app to develop, update business content at any time
    Revenue channel for the 'anchor' business & the reseller managing the community of participating businesses

HOW IT WORKS

Participating businesses place a small beacon near the entrance of their location. Users with the free ProxiHost mobile app on their phone, or our ProxiHost SDK integrated into the anchor business' mobile app, will receive a mobile push notification when they come nearby a participating business that matches their personal interest profile.

When a user opens the app nearby a location, only content is shown of that business. All content is dynamic, can be changed at any time via our web-based CMS (content management system), and does not require any 'update' action from the user. As a business you can choose from a number of custom layouts that match your business profile. Use it to promote your products of services to target customers who are nearby. When bundled with our ProxiPass solution, you can also promote those in-app.

When not at any participating location, the app offers search & wayfinding to nearby businesses, offering another opportunity for business discovery.
