Piper keeps track of all the beacons you encounter so you can go back and relive your day or even discover deals you missed.
Get only the information you’re interested in by blocking messages that aren’t relevant.
Using just your phone, you can add beacons, create content and control messaging. For even more control you can access the easy-to-use content management system from a desktop and change things like scheduling.
Groups now allow you to attach multiple messages to a single beacon so that users connected to specific groups will receive private messages. This is particularly useful for employee communication or VIP engagement.
A Beacon is a small Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices that you place anywhere – your business, a special location or your home. Ranging in size from a quarter to a deck of cards, these modules tell smartphones nearby that they have something to say. Piper connects the beacon to content that the beacon owner creates. But what makes Piper beacons special is that they aren’t bound to a single user or a single message. Instead, our many-to-many architecture lets you control the delivery of messages based on their importance to the individual and their preferences. Piper is the only service that provides both web and mobile based access for you to update content as frequently as you wish. A fully deployed set of beacons is like a small media network. You can manage indoor location-based information services in the same way that GPS and geolocation works in the open air. Beacons can be managed centrally, or they can be controlled by local managers as a way to push timely offers and updates instantly.
We have any form factors for different needs. There are long life battery and AC powered units, weatherproof versions, and key fob styles and even USB powered.
To activate a beacon all you need is your phone. Use the app’s QR scanner to turn on and start set up.
Our enumeration plans help enterprises deploy globally and rapidly, and also provide a sound way to manage your network.
Different uses require specific settings. Choose from 4 radiuses of detection ranging from as small as 1 meter up to full strength.
Inexpensive to deploy with long life in both battery and AC powered form.
Centralized content management system that makes it easy to control messages sent by each beacon or groups of beacons.
Multi-user features allow media outlets and enterprises to give messaging control to advertisers and partners.
A robust analytics suite to track usage, message targeting, & revenue with opportunities for closed loop offers that track the promotion from the beacon to the cash register.
Easy to use APIs for integrating third-party content.
Integration into company’s own app with an available SDK!
We use Piper in many ways both for internal employee communication and external customer engagement. One of the best performing content types we’ve used have been the Apple Pass eCoupons. They’re also distributed through digital ads and show up on users’ lock screens when they come into contact with a beacon, reminding them to make use of the offer. One campaign in particular saw incredible results quickly, especially with millennials – Of the Apple Passes that were downloaded we had a 20% redemption rate in the first 3 weeks.

Our Piper beacons notify hotel visitors of the Houlihan’s restaurants that are located inside our hotels. The messages highlight featured meals and Apple Passes provide exclusive offers. We’ve seen great results from this. During the first two month test, Piper beacons generated over $6,000 in revenue for us.

At Nissan of Newnan we focus on creating a fresh approach to buying your vehicle by emphasizing customer service and providing visitors with as much information as possible so that they can make informative decisions. We use beacons to highlight employees of the month, special customer benefits like our in-house movie theater, service specials, and exclusive Piper offers for specific vehicles. We have found the Apple Passes distributed through Piper to be especially beneficial driving traffic to dealership.
Digital Marketing Manager
We place beacons on properties that we have for sale. We’ve used simple notifications, photos of key features like swimming pools or kitchens, or linked straight to the MLS listing where users can also access agent contact info. We’ve had a lot of interest from customers, especially when during bad weather they don’t have to get out of their car to learn more about the property. Agents are really excited about offering new ways for customers to access exclusive content and as a way for us to set ourselves apart from competition.
