Using smartphones and the mobile Internet, your customers have embraced a connected lifestyle. Whether you are in retail, hospitality, transportation, healthcare, education, or government, Cisco Connected Mobile Experiences (CMX) lets you tap into this lifestyle now. Provide your customers with a highly personalized mobile experience that builds loyalty and boosts customer satisfaction.
A Different Kind of Solution
Built upon Cisco Unified Access infrastructure, CMX is a platform for business innovation that includes:
- Cisco Mobility Services Engine, Cisco wireless access points, and Cisco wireless controllers
Detect presence of mobile devices, transparently connect to Wi-Fi, and locate mobile devices to deliver location-based services.
- An open Mobility Services Representational State Transfer (REST) API
Easily integrate location and contextual attributes into relevant customer applications.
- Cisco and ecosystem partner applications
Deliver location-aware guest access, device-based services, browser-based services, mobile apps, online and onsite analytics, social analytics, and ads and offers.
The Power of Analytics
CMX helps organizations increase efficiencies by better understanding customer behavior with onsite, online, and social analytics.
Onsite location analytics uses CMX to detect presence, locate, and track all Wi-Fi devices. It then aggregates and enhances the data to gain insight into the visitor interaction with the venue. The analytics engine classifies and groups the data based on defined criteria to provide information such as dwell times, crowding index, and traffic paths.
Online analytics equip organizations with the top websites that customers are visiting while in the venue, and the percentage of visitors who have taken advantage of online banner campaigns. Online analytics can help organizations better understand aggregate trends of websites such as online reviews, competitor offers, and social media chatter. The data helps customers combat show rooming and deliver a more relevant mobile experience.
Social analytics, including the Cisco CMX for Facebook Wi-Fi solution, deliver social media demographic information of customers who have checked in to the venue from their mobile device. With this information, organizations can gather aggregate trends such as age, gender, or city of origin.
The intelligence from CMX Analytics helps you provide the most rewarding experience for you and your customers. Get more from your wireless network with Cisco CMX.
