Geotrigger Service

Esri’s Geotrigger Service adds location awareness to smartphone apps – allowing timely information to be delivered directly to people when they enter or leave a certain area.

The technology enables organisations, such as retailers or government agencies, to place an invisible perimeter – known as a ‘geo-fence’ – around a storefront or other area.

It then pushes instant notifications to people’s smartphones when they cross the boundary.

For example, Geotrigger Service can send shoppers targeted vouchers, warn drivers about traffic congestion or provide tourists with city maps.

Ultimately, Esri’s Geotrigger Service connects the right people with the right information at the right time and place.
