Grip chooses Mapwize

Mapwize announces a new collaboration with Grip. Our mapping and wayfinding solution is now embedded in Grip’s Event Solution and proposed to their customers as a premium component. The digital map is linked to the matchmaking app which maximizes visitors & exhibitors experience during the show. Users can locate exhibitors’ booths, meeting areas and other on-site amenities to make the most out of the event

“We are very excited to partner up with Mapwize and its powerful mapping technology. With over 60% of the scheduled meetings on Grip happening at the exhibitors’ booths, it was a top priority for us to simplify the visitors’ journey and help them find these exhibitors on time. Mapwize helps us achieve exactly that for our clients and their attendees: a better user experience driving an even higher Return on Time.” comments Tim Groot, CEO at Grip.

Mapwize back from Web Summit

Mapwize provided the official map of Web Summit 2019 in Lisbon, the major technology conference that brought together more than 70,000 attendees. The digital map, directly embedded into the official event app, indicated the exact location of thousands of exhibitors, stages, lounges and catering stands in a 150,000 m2 total exhibition area.

For this edition, Web Summit integrated Mapwize’s offline feature for both iOS and Android so the map would load instantly and could be used even with no internet connection. As most startups only exhibit 1 day at Web Summit, a different map was available for each day. This was made possible using the “universes” feature which allows to create multiple views of the same building.

Mapwize has received many positive feedbacks from hundreds of users, stating it saves them a lot of time finding their way around the site. On the booth, the team spoke with visitors from all over Europe and even from Brazil and Japan. The show was definitely a great success!

Mapwize SDK 3.0 now available

A New major version of the Mapwize SDKs for iOS, Android and JS is now available. The entire engine has been redesigned to largely improve performances. You can expect faster loading times, lower memory footprint and better caching to decrease bandwidth usage. 

This release will also make developers happy as it is much simpler to work with. We’ve learned from all the feedback we got and removed all major pain points. The documentation has also been largely improved and the methods across all platforms are much more consistent.

The SDKs still come in 2 flavors. Mapwize UI (open source on Github), the fastest way to integrate a fully functional indoor navigation component with all the required user interface but also Mapwize Core SDKs which only contain the map view and API and allow to develop a more advanced integration.
