Points of Interest Management
A Point of Interest (POI) is a specific location within the venue where a product or a service is available. With the CMX Dashboard user interface you can create various POIs highlighting specific zones.
The maps and location data for the campus, building, or floor are uploaded to the Prime Infrastructure and synchronized with the Location MSE. The CMX Dashboard displays these maps.
You can update the map in the CMX Dashboard by clicking Update Floor Maps in Points of Interest menu.
As an administrator, you can create zones inside a venue to use location specific messages, offers, and deals.
You can mark the specific area on the map that you want to make a point of interest in the CMX Dashboard UI.
