Phunware’s RAPID mobile solution for SMBs includes:
- Application Programming Interface (API) access to Phunware’s Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform.
- Phunware’s Mobile Engagement Software Development Kit (SDK) to enable broadcast, geofence and bluetooth low energy (BLE) proximity push notifications, alerts and messages.

- Phunware’s Content Management Engine to enable the configuration of dynamic content and content structures with over-the-air content publishing and updates.
