Foursquare provides real-time event triggering based upon your users’ location in the physical world, allowing you to harness our powerful geotargeting capabilities to send those events to other services via Segment.
Visit Detection - Identify when a user has entered and stopped at a specific venue, category, or chain.
Geofence Events - Tell when a device’s GPS has entered, exited, or remained within a place for a certain amount of time (dwell).
Home and Work Detection - Determine the user’s home and work location after 3-7 days of SDK usage.
User States - Interact with your users based on their current state: home/work, travel, or commute.
Build location-aware features using the most advanced foreground and background location detection so you can understand, engage and retain your users with contextual content in real-time.
Increase User Engagement Using Location Context: Send targeted notifications to users when they’re at or near one of 60 million commercial points-of-interest (POIs) around the globe. Deliver proximity-based alerts when customers enter or exit a geofence, and drive engagement at the highest moment of impact like along a user’s daily commute.
Create Smart, Location-Based Audience Segments: Understand user preferences by knowing what categories and chains your customers like to visit over time. Access pre-built customer profiles, strengthened by descriptive venue attributes such as venue category, ratings, and price, for more intelligent targeting.
Installing Pilgrim SDK's integration with Segment will automatically pipe your Pilgrim event data (like visit arrivals and departures) into your Segment account so that you can send it to other destinations. All you need to do is add the Integration in your Foursquare Developer Console's Pilgrim SDK Integrations page. No need to update your iOS or Android applications with anything from Segment.
