Location Solutions – MPact

The New Rules of Impactful Customer Engagement

As the first of its kind to offer both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® Smart technology, Zebra's MPact Platform for Mobile Marketing allows businesses to provide their customers and guests with the ultimate personalized experience.  Based on real-time location within a facility, MPact makes it easy to provide a personal greeting, special offers, step-by-step directions, prompt customer service and more, automatically delivered where it will have the most impact—on customer and guest smart devices.  With MPact, businesses can determine where customers and guests are located in their facility, define the action they want to take based on that location, and automatically execute those interactions all on customers/guests' personal smart devices at the lowest total cost of ownership.



Exclusive for Partners:



Comprehensive Suite of Components

Bluetooth® Smart Beacons
The MPact solution offers a family of configurable beacons that support a variety of modes. SecureCast™ protects user privacy and ensures beacon security by encrypting beacon data with AES 128, an industry-standard key-based encryption algorithm.

Software Development Kit
The MPact Software Development Kit (SDK) enables easy integration of loyalty app features into iOS and Android smart phones.

Location and Analytics Software
The software is at the heart of the MPact solution, offering an HTML5 highly graphical user interface that turns complex, rich location information into relevant real-time actionable information taking customer engagement to a new level of personalization. Data can be pulled or pushed at any time based on definable triggers. Beacons can be grouped into categories and subcategories for richer control over visitor metrics. And with REST APIs MPact information can be combined with data in other backend business systems to maximize the value of MPact data.

MPact Installation Toolbox
This simple-to-use highly graphic mobile application makes deployment of MPact beacons (Bluetooth Smart tags in MPact hybrid mode) fast and easy. Just install the application on an iPad®, identify the locations where you want to install MPact Beacons on an electronic map in the application and scan the beacons as they are placed—no technical expertise is required.

WiNG 5 Access Points
Our comprehensive portfolio of access points provides high performance secure wireless networking plus locationing—presence, zone and position.

The MPact Advantage

MPact provides three tiers of locationing for customer engagement – presence, zone, and position. With this advanced locationing capability, you will know who is in the facility, where they are, how long they are in certain areas, and what type of products or services they're shopping for to provide a personalized journey that elevates the experience.

MPact has class-leading reliability no matter what the network environment. Whether it's Wi-Fi locationing, with Zebra Technologies' scalable Wi-Fi portfolio powered by the WiNG 5 network, or it's the micro-locationing enabled by Bluetooth® Smart technology beacons, you get extremely accurate locationing capability.

Cost Effective
With a unified platform that delivers both Wi-Fi locationing and Bluetooth® Smart based microlocationing to engage customers at the right time and the right place, MPact delivers a cost effective solution.
