Demonstrating Prowl from the Terminal
After installing the Prowlbox in your store, you can easily see what your customers are listening to, in real time. We are using Citus so we can give you a database designed for multi-tenancy. This data gives you a wide range of actionable insights. For example, a sales associate at a fashion outlet might suggest certain clothing based on what a customer is listening to. You can even run a simple terminal command "prowl" and it will run in the background for you as long as you'd like, or you can make Prowl a Cron (a scheduled task).
You can currently use the Prowl API if you have one of our boxes, it does require the JSON
libraries, but to implement our analytic technology into other ventures, it's fairly simple to run our API, we will provide you sample code below on how to implement the Prowl API. One of the issues we are having at Prowl is parsing information even if the RSS does not update, we are trying to fix this where Prowl only parses data when RSS gets updated, not just parsing acting like a Cron job (repeatedly making RSS calls) when infact, the RSS has not been updated at all. This is wasting bandwidth, resources, and time. I'm currently working on a fix as we speak. In the example below we are using Ruby to ping our API.
require 'route53', '~> 0.3.2'
prowl_resty = Prowl.new
Infinite storage of analytics
Go back as far as you want, we log everything and make sure it's safe and maintained. Using Amazon S3 with Route 53, you can be assured you have infinite storage and a sense of safety of your analytics, CSV files, and more.
Explore the music being played by your patrons in your cafe, bar, restaurant, or really any other place of business you can think of from anywhere using our technology in real time. There's various ways our box captures this data, point of purchase, Wi-Fi and bluetooth enabled mobile devices, guest Wi-Fi connected devices, third-party API applications, weather systems and more.
Our technology uses existing infrastructure (such as routers, or any WLAN infrastructure from major providers) to make installation and activation a quick and easy, plug-and-play experience. The Prowlbox is easy to use and cost efficient.
This comprehensive and highly versatile platform easily integrates with a number of store data sources that will impact shopping behavior. It gives retailers the ability to identify opportunities for growth, execute change, and measure success.
