When Users who have downloaded the LotSpot App are in the proximity of a Beacon, the LotSpot solution will activate to push the Product Content to Users’ mobile devices.  Users can then view the Product Content and interact with the Product Content by making notes and taking or uploading photos associated with the Beacon location information through the LotSpot App (the “Service”).
