Zenreach is a software program that helps businesses grow through a targeted marketing system. The first step to Zenreach is setting up its Wi-Fi. Customers in your store will connect to the Wi-Fi, and then Zenreach will take over to market towards them, based on their personal demographics.

PROS: ZenReach is an easy-to-use, high-tech tool that makes it very easy to collect customer emails. Zenreach allows third-party integrations which are a great help to your digital marketing efforts.

CONS: There's not a lot of customization available when designing emails and they often don't translate well to a cell phone screen. It doesn’t provide customers auto-follow ups, and you have to rely on third-party integrations for integrating loyalty or offer sharing.

Purple WiFi, also known as simply Purple, is a UK-based company that provides enterprise WiFi solutions for venues of all sizes while collecting key demographic and location data.

PROS: Customers must sign-in via their chosen social network website such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, or by completing a form. In doing so you’re able to capture the details of your customers and, with their permission, promote your business to all their online friends.

CONS: While it provides a lot of functionality, it doesn’t have the most intuitive user interface. Although it offers scalable solutions, it's a bit pricey from the start which makes it more convenient for big enterprises compared to small, local businesses.
