Location Based Services

Phunware’s Location Based Services offers a comprehensive set of tools that enable brands to better engage with their users based on location. We play a unique role in the ecosystem of location hardware technology providers, software providers, and point solutions like map editors and push notification providers. Phunware seamlessly integrates all these technologies with the ultimate goal of providing elevated user experience. The Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform ingests and fuses location data from on-site hardware and renders it as user-friendly maps and routes. Administrators are able to easily manage the map and other app content in the cloud-based portal.
