Make information about your location mobile with viaPlace's customization capabilities. Store any information you want, from store hours to historical details, and target when you want that information to appear on the user's phone. You could show details on the closest flower shop when a user searches for "flowers," or display historical information about a building as your users walk by. Involve social media to create a mobile conversation—save and share user comments about that great pizza place down the street. Make your location interactive through customizing in real time with viaPlace.
viaPlace keeps a centralized registry of basic data for every point in the viaPlace system. That way, as users reach a specific point of interest, we can quickly provide them with initial details, and then direct them to a localized database for more information. The centralized registry allows us to provide "channels" of information, similar to TV programming, to which users can subscribe. This feature helps streamline and customize applications built with viaPlace.
viaPlace can turn your physical location into an interactive, digital experience. You can link locations together in a customized map, and provide rich content to immerse your users in your location. Create multimedia tours, or guide users through a haunted walking tour, complete with spooky sound effects. Help your location be memorable by creating a hi-tech experience with viaPlace.
Using customized mapping technology, viaPlace can display an interactive map on your mobile device. Much like other mapping systems, users can pan, zoom, and explore. But that's not all. With viaPlace, users can view their current locations, and the surrounding points of interest. You can use default maps, or provide your own hyper-local maps. Show where the recycling bins are at the green-themed event, or where to get nachos at the game. Malls, stadiums, airports—any location can customize a map with viaPoint.
Not only does viaPlace tell users more about where they are, right now, it also lets them know what's nearby. If your user gets hungry, they can use their application to show nearby restaurants, in the order of closest to farthest. Then, they can view details and get directions. The "nearby" listing capabilities of viaPlace keep users interested in your location, through helping them know where to go next.
Preferences and Filtering
Let your users experience your location the way they want to. viaPlace lets users search for and filter locations based on their own preferences and categories. viaPlace will include comprehensive metadata to make searches effective and specific so your users get what they want without having to sort through the rest.

Why have an application if no one knows it's there? viaPlace can provide a training course on marketing your application so you can get the word out. viaPlace can also provide customized service to generate traffic to your application.
