Our Location services are more than lat/long, they’re tools for translating addresses and geolocations, for building fences, and tracking movements, all with superior battery performance.


All the location tools you need – in one place

The Onymos Location Feature contains a suite of functions for managing location information and offers significantly expanded support for geofences and notifications.

Power optimized

We’re innovating solutions to the overall battery drain issues related to geolocation services.

More geofences than iOS or Android

Location allows for more than the 25 and 99 geofences that iOS and Android operating systems have as limitations, respectively. In fact, with Onymos Location, the number of geofences you can build is functionally limitless.

Zoom in, zoom out

Capture geodata like “country” and “state” or get granular — all the way down to street addresses.

Geo, but simple

We built Location to be the ultimate drop-in geolocation services feature for startups and enterprises. It comes with everything you need to leverage geodata for even the most complex use cases.

Everything you need to manage location

The simplest, fastest way to manage location and geofences.

Match the look

Front-end configuration via standard HTML/CSS ensures all Onymos Features fit seamlessly into your existing project.

Full stack

Unlike plugins or code snippets, each Onymos component is full stack, from the user interface to the cloud layer.

No looking back

Onymos supports the Feature at every stage. Updates are as simple as rebuilding with our newest object release.
