LVAA embraces beacons for Open Studio Weekend

The Louisville Visual Art Association integrated elistik beacons into their 2017 Open Studio Weekend. Over the weekend of November 4th, the LVAA had over 60 beacons spread throughout Louisville, Kentucky inside of galleries.

As people made the way around the city they were able to checkin to galleries and received welcome notifications on their phone as they approached. This created a more engaging digital experience and also gave galleries the opportunity to extend their reach from outside their location and pull users in.

Since many studio locations were located in residential areas, having the beacon broadcasting also made it easier to identify which buildings were hosting a gallery. This type of event covers many miles and has a very wide footprint, so any and all efforts to expand the signal and reach becomes incredible valuable.

We look forward to seeing how we can utilize elistik beacons at studios throughout the year and create engaging content for customers to give feedback and hopefully experience and appreciate local art. Thank you to all who attended this years Open Studio Weekend and we look forward to being a part of your experience in 2018!

The ability to export your data and more…

1.0.4 Release

We are happy to be rolling out our 1.0.4 release of our iOS application. With our previous release of 1.0.3 we added a new intro tutorial to try and help our new users better understand how the application works and explain some of the benefits. 1.0.4 has several improvements and bug fixes, but one of the main enhancements that we added to this release is the ability to export your data from the system. Now when you host an event, run a promotion, or distribute a survey, our pro users will be able to tap the ‘history’ button and see more information on these previous broadcasts. This will be incredibly beneficial to users who want to then import data directly into their CRM or other reporting tools.

We hope you enjoy 1.0.4 and we are looking forward to some great things ahead! We anticipate 1.0.4 to be available as an update 10/30/17 or sooner.
