Overview

 

PROXIMA SMS is the unique SMS-based Proximity Marketing service of MarketlinkPH . Unlike our web-based BRANDED SMS text blast service that requires a database of numbers, PROXIMA SMS will live detect mobile users within its reach and send SMS with your Company Name or Brand Name as Sender ID. Our Engineers go on site to conduct the job for you.

 

Uses

 

Because PROXIMA SMS is location specific, it presents many opportunities in various Industry Verticals

Real Estate - The Developer can target Residents near the site to appeal to those who wish to upgrade. If the Property is ideal for Investors, the Developer can aim the message to areas where people matching the Investor Profile are working or residing.

Events - MICE/ Events Organizers can drive people to the event to increase its value to Exhibitors and Sponsors. An Exhibitor in a large Hall can drive people to their Booth.

Malls - Malls can broadcast the Sale Event to target communities. Mall Tenants can drive people to their store during special Sale Events..

Consumer Brands - Brand Managers use can enhance Product launches and Brand Awareness and drive traffic to their Store

 

For a 3-hour period, PROXIMA SMS can reach anywhere from 6,000 to 20,000 depending on the density. Density is influenced by choice of area, day of the week, events, special ocassions.

Reaching a high number may not be what is important to you as much as reaching the right market. For example, if you are promoting high end properties, you would want the job conducted in high end areas and they are certainly low density. If you are pushing a mass based product, you can target densely populated areas.

Demo

 

We prefer that all preliminary discussions can be done by phone, email or actual visit for Meeting purposes (no equipment). We can provide References.

 

Demos are intended solely to finalize the Purchase Order. We apologize but we simply cannot Demo for "Future Reference" or to prove the technology and satisfy curiosity because doing the demo takes as much machine time, staff time and effort as doing the actual job. We are also are not inclined to be casually lugging around sensitive, very high-value assets.

 

Other factors:

Budget
Having stated our reference rate above, we expect that the fee is generally acceptable and that there is no serious cost issue. You can email your requirements ahead of time and we can give a ballpark figure ahead of time. There is no deep discounting.

Time frame

Location

Intended frequency of use

Company reputation

Participation of Decision Makers
We expect the presence of the Decision Makers so that a Purchase Order can be processed immediately upon successful demo.

 

Exception:

The only exception to the Demo policy is if the requesting party is Government. We service requests from Government provided that the demo will be conducted in NCR, or if outside NCR, that the costs involved in the demo will be shouldered. PROXIMA SMS device itself can be sold only to Government entities for use for public service announcements, emergency alerts, search and rescue, and more - this is vital to government agencies performing functions vital to national security or safety like National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC). PROXIMA SMS SRP is P 10M, comprised of P 8.8M Hardware, and P 1.2M for Support.

Technology

 

PROXIMA SMS is NOT BlueTooth Proximity Marketing. PROXIMA SMS is GSM/ SMS. That means it is universal and is able to reach target mobiles, UNLIKE BlueTooth that needs to be turned on.

 

The video below shows PROXIMA SMS in action - you will notice its high detection rate and throughput of 2 to 3 SMS per second.

We cannot fully disclose the Technology as we want to protect our Intellectual Property. Generally speaking though, all mobile devices since 1997 are compliant with GSM 03.41 which defines the Short Message Service - Cell Broadcast (SMS-CB) and all mobile devices send out "beacons" that can be read to determine that it is nearby.

 

 

PROXIMA SMS sensitivity is adjustable from 50 meters to up to 1.5km. To cover a wider area, it can be moved around.

Legal

 

PROXIMA is covered by Intellectual Property Office Application No. : 42016503541 under EFPH201600000045511. IPO is located at World Finance Plaza Bldg., #28 Upper McKinley Road, McKinley Hill Town Center, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City 1634, Philippines

We are 100% FULLY COMPLIANT with all provisions of Republic Act 7925, also known as the Public Telecommunications Policy Act, RA 3846 or the Radio Control Law, Executive Order 546, and Memorandum Circular 9-8-1991 and Memorandum Order 01-02-2013. We DO NOT sell, purchase, import, possess or use cellular mobile repeaters and portable cellsites operating on 800 megahertz, 900 MHz 1800 MHz, and 2100. The laws mentioned cover the selling, purchase, import, possess or use cellular mobile repeaters and portable cellsites operating on 800 megahertz, 900 MHz 1800 MHz, and 2100. We are 100% compliant with RA 10175. Our process DOES NOT involve hacking of telecom network. There is NO SECURITY BREACH of any sort. OUR COMPANY DOES NOT OWN any kind of cellular mobile repeaters and portable cellsites.PROCESS DOES NOT INVOLVE HACKING of mobile phones. It DOES NOT in any way use the credits of the mobiles in the process because the process is peer-to-peer (handset-to-handset) - unlike the normal handset-to-network-to-handset which require the use of network resources. In fact, this process would work EVEN IF THERE ARE NO NETWORK PROVIDERS and NO SIGNAL in the area. Mobile Phones regardless of Operating System and year of manufacture have inherent, built-in command sets, including how it will react to specific command sets received through transmission similar to SMS-CB, in a similar way that special key presses on even old mobile phones trigger the device to extract and show information otherwise not visible via menus. Peer-to-Peer meshes under GSM protocols are widely researched - some projects like The Serval Mesh are well known. Under GSM protocol, even if you are not talking on your cell phone, your phone is constantly sending and receiving information over a pathway called a control channel, and this protocol comes with command sets. Beyond this, we are not obliged to fully disclose the technology as that is Intellectual Property.

We are also 100% compliant with RA 10173. PROXIMA SMS does not access any personally identifiable information.
