NEW! Automatic filtering – more accurate reporting for Presence Analytics

We’ve created a new filtering feature for Presence Analytics so you can get the most comprehensive overview of your customers. It identifies employees’ devices, as well as fixed devices (such as printers and other network equipment) and automatically filters them out. That way, these black listed devices are not represented in the KPIs displayed on the Volare platform. For complete control, MAC addresses can be manually added and removed from the black list.

NEW! Custom Reports – understanding Venue performance and optimizing best practices

Custom Reports is a powerful new tool that allows for side-by-side comparison of various venues. This new tool makes it easy to see how different venues’ KPIs match up against one another, displaying which Venues perform best and in what areas. Custom Reports also allows you to group Venues together, so you can compare different regions as well. This is crucial to drawing overall performance data if you want to understand why one venue outperforms another. Figuring out what the best practices are can help improve operations and generate more business for you. You can even export these reports into CSV files for easy offline analysis. (more info)

NEW! Promotional Communications Policy customization – branding taken to the next step
