Introducing Pulsate

Pulsate is a mobile-first personalized customer engagement platform that will allow BankGloucester to send push notifications, in-app, and location-driven notifications for everything from announcements, special events, special offers and new products and services.

Starting on Tuesday, March 26, BankGloucester customers will be prompted to update their BG Mobile App. Business banking customers will download the same update but are not able to receive Pulsate communications. After updating, users will be asked to grant location access the next time they open the app. If the customer chooses not to grant location access at this time, they will be able to access the app normally, but will not receive Pulsate communications. See below for device specific instructions.

The initial prompt provides a brief explanation on how the BG Mobile App will use location data. Allowing access will opt users into push notifications and location-based offers automatically.

After clicking next on the prior screen, the app will be request location data access. When the user clicks “Allow While Using App” the App will get foreground location and temporary background location permissions.

When the App tries to access background location in the future the system will automatically display a new popup requesting access location data in the background. By granting this permission, the app will be able to notify customers of Pulsate communications even when the BG Mobile App is not open.
