Location Based Services
Bring your venue to life
Light Up On-Premise Experiences
Phunware’s location based services offers a comprehensive set of tools that enables you to use your customer’s location to provide memorable engagement during their visit.
Seamlessly guide your app users from outdoors to indoors powered by dynamic points of interest (POIs), customizable map elements and Landmark Based Routing with intuitive, natural language. The latest Google and Apple map technologies and design patterns are used to provide a familiar experience with both wayfinding or real-time blue dot positioning.
Real-Time “Blue Dot” Indoor Positioning
Add Phunware’s Blue Dot SDK to your app for rich maps with real-time indoor positioning. The iOS- and Android-compatible solutions pinpoint a device’s location to real-world latitude, longitude and floor level. Thanks to advanced caching, the Phunware in-app navigation experience continues uninterrupted if users lose Wi-Fi connectivity.
Web Wayfinding and Digital Signage
Access the same mobile maps and turn-by-turn directions on a desktop browser. Help visitors find their way around your facility from home or when they arrive and allow them to print and share navigation instructions.
Integrate with digital signage products such as the Scala S player to display a touch-friendly interface for navigation instructions.
Phunware Location Experience Kit
The kit includes everything you need to set up a real-time blue dot experience in a trial area. Upon successful setup completion, you will be able to view your location (blue dot) on the map, navigate between all points of interest configured, share your location with another user, and access your map and static routing directions on the web.
Pushing the Limits of Location Tech
Developers can leverage a GPS signal to enable outdoor-to-indoor navigation. For example: walking from a parking lot to a facility where Wi-Fi or beacons might not be present.
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Beacons
Phunware’s indoor location solution provides 3-10 foot accuracy and updates a user’s position more than once per second. We work with facilities throughout the implementation process, including beacon provisioning, site survey, installation and calibration.
Phunware is integrated with Cisco’s Connected Mobile Experience (CMX) solution and our customers can leverage Cisco infrastructure to provide indoor positioning.
Take advantage of Mist Intelligent Wireless Cloud (IWC) and deploy Phunware wayfinding resources integrated with virtual Bluetooth beacons (vBLE).
