Geolocation is a technology that uses data acquired from an individual’s computer or mobile device to identify or describe the user’s actual location. Two types of data can be collected—device-based information and passive server-based lookup. This is then cross-referenced against each other to create the most accurate result.
Geolocation services have been taking the business world by storm. Micro-Fencing™ is Digital Factory’s next-generation geo-fencing technology. Geofencing enables the definition of a virtual fence within which users can receive notifications specific to that time and place, and administrators can know which users are present and for how long. With an accuracy of 5-30 ft., micro-fencing enables a much finer degree of message control than possible with previous geo-fencing technologies.
