BKON Platform on Laptop front facing

Built for enterprise-level marketers, but simple enough for anyone to use.

Our platform is useful for more than content and beacon fleet management. It gives you improved control, better performance visibility and enriched consumer experiences in Physical Web browsers or your own Physical Web enabled apps.

Control

Instantly and remotely control the message, creative, and context for any brand Physical Web beacon. One at a time or for thousands in bulk.

Designed as a complete end-to-end proximity marketing platform and built for enterprise scale, our platform helps you simultaneously manage beacon, QR, and NFC deployments; fleet management; metrics; API control; and context management. This gives you the greatest possible control of digital interactions people have with your Physical Web touchpoints. The best part: You control it all remotely with a single platform.

Compatibility

While our beacons and QR codes are pre-configured for the Physical Web and preprogrammed with a unique shorter that is compatible with our platform, third-party Eddystone-URL beacons, QR codes, and NFC tags can also be configured and managed with our platform.

Platform Compatibility

Our platform is fully compatible with third-party beacon hardware, NFC tags, and QR codes, as long as they’re configured for Physical Web use as Eddystone-URL.

Of course, it is worth noting that our beacons are shipped configured for Eddystone-URL, and preprogrammed with a unique shorter that is compatible with our platform. You do not have to pair with or configure the beacon, just type the laser-engraved ID into the platform and add your own destination URL. That’s it. Now you can control it remotely, from anywhere in the world. 

For third-party beacon, QR and NFC compatibility, simply add one of our unique TouchPoint IDs to your device and enter your desired destination URL in the platform. Simple redirects are free, while our platform offers advanced functions such as microsite hosting, metrics, an API, and device controls for a low monthly service fee. Contact us to learn about compatibility for your specific brand and volume pricing.
