PlotProjects geofencing SDK features and tools

Our geofencing SDK, APIs & Dashboard

High accuracy, low battery use 

When choosing a geofencing SDK you’ll want a solution that’s both accurate and battery efficient. A high level of geofencing accuracy ensures that the most relevant audience receives your messages, while battery drain is inconvenient for users and could lead to them uninstalling your app.

PlotProjects has complex algorithms in place to ensure this balance. We can deliver accuracy down to 10 meters, and our solution doesn’t rely on battery-draining GPS. 

Location data 

Geofencing allows you to incorporate location and behavioural data into your app to improve audience segmentation and the delivery of relevant messages. It is a highly effective tool because it’s personalized, timely and very targeted. Our geofencing platform with SDK has plenty of features for tracking key metrics, these include:

Foot Traffic, Dwell Time and Visit History

The Plot SDK lets you monitor the amount of visits to a geofence, the time spent in a geofence and the type of locations users have visited before. These insights can help you understand how your users behave in the real world, enabling you to target them in a more personalized way and connect the dots between your various marketing channels.

Real-World Audiences

Real-world Audiences lets you build audiences or profiles based on real-life movements. This removes blindspots, enriching your campaigns with brand affinities, product preferences and lifestyle categories. Our Audiences feature helps you identify places of interest, predict purchase intent and create richer segments.

Activity Monitor, Stop/Start Detection

Stop & Start Detection and Activity Monitor can be combined to trigger events and notifications based on specific activities and movements. For instance, you can create a geofence around a car parking lot that triggers a notification when a user gets out of the car. It’s also useful for geogames to trigger in-game events, fitness apps to monitor steps, or eco / green apps to monitor carbon footprint.

A suite of tools for Checkin/Checkout

We also offer a suite of tools for Check-in / Check-out with beacons for improved accuracy. It can be used anywhere a user needs to show proof of purchase, even underground! It can also be useful for things like mobile order collection, curbside pickup and click and collect, especially when combined with our other useful tools.

Other top features for location-based segmentation

  • Home, work & place detection: Boost your conversions by reaching out when users can make time for you. And define visits based on motion sensors and stop detection. You’ll also avoid missed opportunities by marketing to your users at the wrong moments.
  • POI database: Get started with Facebook Places for an extended library of locations, then easily set up your own.
  • Segmentation: Choose pre-defined or custom audiences such as daily commuters or frequent diners.
  • 95% accuracy store visit detection: Make the most of industry-leading accuracy when identifying which places people visit and when. Our offline attribution analytics and data are Neilson Standard accredited as 95% reliable.

Geofencing platform with easy-to-use dashboard

Any geofencing platform should come with a full-featured dashboard that makes it easy to build, manage and refine your geomarketing campaigns. You’ll also want lots of helpful features including the following:

  • Unlimited & scaleable geofences: The Plot dashboard lets you build unlimited geofences, helping you bypass the standard limitations for iOS and Android geofencing APIs. You can also build scalable campaigns, with geofences that range from 50m to 50,000m. 
  • Support for polygonal geofences & beacons: Our full-featured platform makes it possible for you to tailor your campaigns with polygons for precise measurement, and beacons to detect micro locations and improve proximity experiences.
  • Easy geofence & campaign management: Easily create and manage your campaigns with handy features like time manager, geofence labels and tags, and multiple campaigns running in parallel. 
  • Advanced analytics & reporting: Optimize your campaigns by keeping track of all performance metrics. See store visits, create user profiles, do A/B testing and use heatmaps to understand user behavior, detect blind spots and plan your next actions.

Advanced privacy options

PlotProjects has always been a privacy-first company. Not only does our software comply with all privacy and data protection regulations by default, but we also offer an extra layer of customizable privacy options such as Privacy Mode and Event Filters. 

  • Privacy Mode: This enables full privacy on-device, meaning our plugin won’t store collected data on our servers.
  • Event Filters These allow you to decide what data leaves and stays on-device, with full control over where it’s sent.

In addition we stay fully up to date with changes across iOS and Android, offering guidance about best practices for location permission prompts, such as how to stay transparent, explain added value to the user and the best times to show prompts.

Cooldown & other anti spam tools

Without anti-spam tools, users might receive too many notifications and leave bad app reviews. 

  • Cooldown: Our Cooldown feature allows you to control the amount of notifications your users receive, and set a timer in between notifications to prevent spamming. You can set a Cooldown period straight from your dashboard or programatically via the API.
  • Non-Resendability: This is another handy tool that stops you re-sending the same notifications to users at locations they’ve already visited. It ensures that users don’t get annoying duplicate messages at locations they’ve visited before.

Notification filter & custom notifications

Use our notification filter for personalized notifications. It gives you the ability to preview, alter or modify messages before the end user sees them. Clients can add custom logic to their notifications, for example, they can be set so that notifications are only shown to certain audiences or groups. 

Contextual pages 

When a user opens your app via a notification or not, take them straight to the right pages to give them a subtle push towards a purchase. Contextual Pages works by surfacing the most relevant location-based content when it’s needed.
