Cloud4Wi Mobile SDK includes multiple modules that rely on different technologies and techniques to empower mobile apps with location services and connectivity.
In particular, there are two available modules: WiFi Module and Geo Module. This article describes the capabilities of the Geo Module. For details on the WiFi Module, read this article.
Note: the Mobile SDK - Geo module is available on qualified Cloud4Wi subscriptions only. Contact your sales rep for more details.
To learn how it works, explore our Developer Hub.
The Geo module is designed to work with Cloud4Wi Compass to extend the benefits of Compass to mobile app users. In particular, this module extends the Compass capabilities outside of the locations owned or controlled by the organization, and relies on smartphone's location services to track user location behaviors.
Upon express authorization of the user, the Geo SDK can collect background location (even when the app is closed). The Geo SDK collects data with high accuracy without impacting battery consumption. The SDK is available for both OS and has plugins for Cordova and React-native.
The Geo Module empowers Compass Contact Profiling and Moments capabilities.

The Mobile SDK - Geo Module requires an active Compass Subscription and the dedicated Mobile SDK Subscription.
Each Mobile User enabled via the SDK counts as a Contact in the Compass Subscription as soon as it generates a Location event. Users who do not accept the location services of the mobile operative system does not generate location events and are not accounted for as Contacts.
Clients can manage Contacts autonomously and remove any record that is not considered useful for their purposes. By deleting a record, the entire profile and history of visits and activity of the Contact are erased from the Cloud4Wi Account. Parametric data retention rules allow to automatically delete records after a specific period of inactivity. Contact our team for more details.
Each Mobile SDK - Geo Module Subscription includes up to 10,000 geofences. Contact the Cloud4wi Sales team if a larger number of geofences is required.
