What is the best Gimbal alternative?
Radar is the leading geofencing platform, with a focus on privacy, scalability, accuracy, developer experience, and support. We help enterprises like T-Mobile, American Eagle Outfitters, Zappos, and Cars.com increase engagement and improve operations, powering impactful location-based experiences for over 100 million end users.
Unlike Gimbal, Radar is the leader in developer experience, with open-source SDKs and flexible tracking options. Radar is easy to integrate, with thousands of developers using our SDKs and self-service offering. We offer dozens of battle-tested integrations with tools like Airship, Braze, mParticle, Segment, Branch, Amplitude, Salesforce, and Olo. Radar is also enterprise-ready, with SOC 2 type II certification, GDPR and CCPA compliance, custom data retention, advanced access controls, and more.

What our customers are saying
We needed a geofencing partner that could power both best-in-class in-store and curbside functionality, and Radar was the obvious choice given their privacy and developer-first approach.
The onboarding support provided by Radar was best-in-class. They were not only very helpful in advising our team on how to integrate Radar into our legacy stack, but also thoughtful about how we can see increased value in our future, cloud-based environment.
