It has the capacity to beam messages which in turn can be customised to suit your specific needs.iBeacon app development services can help you capitalize on this powerful feature. For example, In a retail store scenario, you can detect when a user walks near your store and display a message on their mobile phone instantly to attract them to your store. While they are in your store you can further use iBeacons to provide them with exciting offers or actionable information depending on there precise location inside the store.

iBeacon Content Management System:
The brain of the ibeacon resides on the server. You can customise messages using this CMS system and push various kinds of notification or messages to the mobile app like promotional message, deals, location based coupons or even surveys. We have build multiple CMS systems to manage varied iBeacon apps. We have the capability to develops these CMS in languages and frameworks like PHP, Codeigniter, YII, Node, RoR etc.
