Location based services

Location based services is about more than just geolocational data — it lets you harness that data for real-world, real-time location intelligence.

services with DoiT

Customers want connected, real-time experiences. Increasingly, they rely on apps to help them find places, events, services and people – and those apps depend on location-based services (LBS) to integrate data from various resources to deliver customized and relevant services based on the user’s geographic location. 

Companies intent on catering to changing customer and market trends must understand their market environment. Wherever your customers conduct their business, you need to be on top of the real-world factors that guide their decisions so that you can develop a holistic view of your market and make targeted business decisions. 

DoiT understands what’s involved in harnessing LBS to deliver real business success while delighting customers and preserving their privacy. We can help you build powerful data platforms that provide near-real-time location data at scale, cutting your costs and enabling deeper investment in products that drive adoption and revenue.

Understanding location-based services

Whether you are looking for someone, somewhere or something, LBS technology drives the functionality of many mobile apps. It works by integrating data from satellite navigation systems, cellular networks and mobile devices to deliver services based on the geographical locations of users. Today’s cloud and SaaS-based  geolocational technology has evolved to provide complex solutions for implementing scalable, performant and resilient location-based service models and facilities.

As smartphone technology advances, dependency on location-based services has soared. Mobility, last-mile delivery, geofencing, in-store mapping, e-commerce checkout and location-based advertisements are all enabled by LBS, allowing businesses to provide relevant content and improve the user’s in-app experience.
