Cikala Srl is born in the wake of new technological trend of marketing. Its main object is to detect tastes, habits and position of users, following a logic of an extreme proximity localization for marketing, content sharing and social-media management.

Cikala’s founders , before the effective constitution of the company, created Cikala-Maps, an innovative platform which is able to localize users without the GPS and during the indoor use. With this platform it is possible to detect the localization of users with precision (<10 mt) and it improves both the proximity marketing and sharing strategies.

All Cikala’s projects are based on absolute localization (the position of a device within a certain area) and relative localization (the position of a device compared to others).

The basic idea beyond the project is that knowing the location of each router and each cell tower in a certain area it is possible to detect the correct position of users. Furthermore, Cikala-Maps technology permit localization of a device also if its Wi-Fi is not connected to a router and if its GPS is off.

 Main activities

Cikala’s team developed two products which use the proximity technology:

  • Cikala-Maps Services
  • Cikala-App

Cikala app

Cikala app is an application available on both Android and IOS stores that uses Cikala-Maps technology.
