Frequently Asked Questions

About our Products and Services

General

Yes, free updates for a major version are included. If we upgrade to another major version we will offer a discount to existing customers.

We sell our products for a low, one-time fee. This means we need to sell bulk in order to have a profitable business. For update guarantees we'd have to change our pricing model to a subscription based business model. So, we can only promise support and bugfixes. Other than that the market decides what the market wants, if sales go well, updates will follow.

Yes, all products and versions can be branded with your own logo and name.

The code is unencrypted and you're free to modify.

We're interested in projects starting around 10K EUR. Small projects usually cost more time than they generate profit. It takes a lot of time to develop and maintain software like this. A seemingly simple issue may take weeks of full time work. Define requirements, design, develop, test, improve, deploy. The bigger a project gets, the more time it takes to test for conflicts and backward compatibility.

This obviously depends on your skills. The code is clearly written, but there's no full code documentation explaining every feature and function. While you're free to modify it, we don't support that or spend time documenting every step we take. Most customers have no technical knowledge and are helped more with new features instead of development documentation.

Pulse Platform

Yes, the Pulse Platform works with every Bluetooth device that supports the iBeacon protocol.

Yes, you can create as many apps as you want with the same endpoint. Users and resellers can use one generic app, or have their own.

There are local push notifications for scenario triggers. For example, when someone enters a geo-fence or encounters an iBeacon. If you want push notifications which can be sent at any time, you will have to this integrate yourself.

In order to understand this question, you need to know how Eddystones work.

An Eddystone beacon has three modes (https://developers.google.com/beacons/get-started):

  1. UID mode which enables you to attach data to a beacon through the Google platform. Instead of storing data in your app, it's stored in the Google cloud.
  2. EID mode, same as UID but better security so you can control who can can use the beacon, https://developers.google.com/beacons/eddystone-eid.
  3. URL mode which broadcasts a url. And since you can broadcast any url, you can create a landing page or mobile site and broadcast its url with an Eddystone.

URL Eddystones require no app and can be configured like this: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1JDZKg1VLiDfUWoMZqvSO2gO33pFs9XfMqkVBK2ej0_Y/edit.

But in order to support UID/EID Eddystones, you need a use case for which it makes sense to use those beacons. And currently there is no such feature in the platform.

Resellers can have their own domain where users can register. They can sell subscriptions for the same price as the master account. There's no option for resellers to manage their own pricing, but with Avangate you can give them an affiliate share. Resellers only see their own users. The system owner can see all users, also users from resellers.

Mobile Platform

No, it is a Mobile Site Builder in the first place. There is an experimental PhoneGap API connection, but it can't be trusted and is only included for companies who have the knowledge to elaborate on it. If you're looking for an App Builder, this project is not for you.

Push notifications require a native app. Since it's a Mobile Site Builder, there is no possibility to send push notifications.
