Location Analytics

Drive Efficiency and Customer Engagement

Brick and mortar stores, using traditional location analytics such as door counters and cameras, are unable to segment and target their customers as effectively as their online counterparts. These businesses are also at the risk of losing revenue through staff misallocation and less-than-optimum in-store displays. With Ruckus Smart Positioning technology (SPoT) location services, retailers, stadiums, and transportation hubs can enhance the way they interact with customers, based on precise location.

SPoT generates operationally significant data that help businesses build an in-depth understanding of their venue and improve overall efficiency. Deployed on top of Ruckus WLANs, Ruckus SPoT has flexible deployment options, doesn’t require any additional hardware, and has unlimited scalability in the cloud.

Drive revenue and customer engagement with ecosystem solutions

SPoT provides real-time and historical location data of pre-configured assets. Simply enter the device’s unique MAC address on the asset tracking dashboard to locate it. Organizations using SPoT asset tracking can

Ruckus SPoT caters to different businesses through a range of deployment options
