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.

Susan Eshleman, VP of Product, American Eagle Outfitters

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.
