Location means the physical place where your organization would like to deploy the beacons. This physical space can be an individual branch of chain stores, museum, stadiums, restaurants etc. One can create a new location through our web admin console.
Region means a particular area in the location under the organization. For example, in a retail store, if a beacon is placed near the dress aisle in a retail store, then that aisle is termed as region. To create a region, you need to first add the beacons to the platform and then create regions for a particular area.
