  • Does Purple provide Hardware?

    Purple is primarily a software platform so we do not provide hardware

    In the case of WiFi you must have your own hardware and an existing network in order to deploy Purple

    For our Wayfinding solution we will provide beacons, but not digital signs, or kiosks

  • What happens if my licenses expire?

    You can monitor your current licensing by visiting the ‘Licensing Status’ area of the portal

    We will contact you in advance of any upcoming license expiry to check in and ensure there is no disruption to our service

    If you are using Presence and/or Location then it is vital your licensing remains in place and is not allowed to expire to prevent any data loss.

  • What type of licenses do I need?

    There are several different license types available, each with different fetaures.
