Location Intelligence Helps Visitors Drive their Own Unique Experience October 26, 2017
Memphis TN: ThinkProxi LLC, an international location-intelligence technology company, recently announced they were selected to build an app and implement beacon technology on the world-famous Beale Street in Memphis TN.
“We wanted to provide a more interactive experience to our visitors, “says Jon Shivers, Director of Beale Street. “The buildings on Beale Street are rich in history, which we can share through beacon technology. In addition, we can showcase the offerings of our restaurants, shops, and bars through our new app, in real-time.”
Beale Street’s free app, includes an interactive map, a historic walking tour, and listings for bar and restaurants, retail shops, events and live music.
Blake Higgins, ThinkProxi’s Director of Implementation, is confident the app will enrich the visitor experience. “Visitors, and especially Millennials, have smartphones. Our app and the corresponding beacons enable them to access the information they want to know directly on their phones. Some are interested in history, while others want to know who is performing at a nightclub, and still others are curious about the promotions and coupons being offered. It’s easy for the app’s administrator to change or add information, so nothing is outdated or incorrect. Beale Street’s app lets each visitor build their own unique experience.”
Beale Street’s app premiered in September and can be downloaded from either Google Play or the Apple store.
