Find the package to fit your needs

CMX is not a single product but a set of solutions. They all provide location data. And they all give you insight into your customers’ behavior while delivering information to them. Our packages offer varying levels of complexity.


An ideal entry point, a "good" deployment detects the presence of a mobile device.


Add the value of location. A "better" deployment not only detects a mobile device in an indoor space but also tells you where it is.


The gold standard for indoor location, a "best" deployment delivers high accuracy and a near real-time refresh rate.
