Gimbal Beacons can be integrated with your app, and will send push notifications to users once they walk in range of the beacon at your event.
How to Create a Gimbal Account:
The client will need to setup and verify a Gimbal account: https://manager.gimbal.com/login/users/sign_in (select "Register" if creating a new account).
Once completed, the client should also create an account for their Zerista rep. Zerista will take this information, update the client's app to utilize Beacons, then resubmit to Apple/Android for re-approval. The sooner we get this information, the faster we can get re-approval.
Note: Beacons can only be used with a standalone app, and not with the YourEvent app. Please confirm that the client has their own developer license if beacons have been bought.
Example Beacon use-case scenarios:
- Send a notification to users with directions to the venue.
- Send a welcome notification for attendees once they arrive at the venue.
- Post-session, send a notification with a link to relevant session collateral.
- Send a survey with exhibitor contact information for follow up after users visit their booth.
