Business model

We sell whitelabel mobile & touchscreen applications to enterprise customers (hospitals, airports, shopping malls, college campuses).

We resell hardware to enterprise customers to run our touchscreen software.

We sell API access to our indoor map content to software developers.

We sell advertising space on our applications.

Competitive advantage

Cross-platform map API can be use by applications on high-visibility 50-inch touchscreens, as well as web and mobile devices.

Open-source content strategy enables us to scale our indoor map database more quickly than proprietary competitors.

Multiple revenue streams allow us to scale smoothly, while moving to capture revenue higher up the value chain.
