  • Very informative deck. Thanks for sharing. I especially like how beacons can help with attendance and also to restrict device access at certain locations. In fact, as beacons get more and more popular it is really interesting to see how businesses across various verticals leverage beacons to enhance consumer experience. However, even today many marketers are yet to think of leveraging beacons for their business. If you are one among them, you can try asking your boss to try a DIY proximity marketing project with our app to see beacons in action, without having to invest in creating a campaign.We have compiled a perfect pitch that will help you present a strong case for beacons here: http://blog.mobstac.com/2015/04/convincing-your-boss-for-a-beacon-pilot-project-here-are-3-tips-for-you/
