Austin, Texas [April 9, 2020] (ORIGINAL: BUSINESS WIRE) – Phunware, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHUN) (the “Company”), a fully-integrated enterprise cloud platform for mobile that provides products, solutions, data and services for brands worldwide, announced today that it has added a global multinational customer for its mobile corporate campus solution.
Phunware’s Multiscreen-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform helps employers manage their campus services with an employee and visitor-friendly, native, mobile-first application portfolio on Apple iOS and Google Android. MaaS enables feature-rich mobile application solutions for employers to not only increase employee productivity and satisfaction, but also to provide visitors with an enhanced brand experience while onsite, including automated arrival and reception check-ins, location tracing, broadcast, geofence and beacon-based messaging and personnel and staff engagement by name, position and department.
This new global multinational customer intends to leverage MaaS to manage its room bookings, enable positioning, wayfinding and navigation throughout its facilities, enable location sharing amongst its employees, partners and customers and extend its other building services via mobile integration and activation. Platform integrations with existing third-party solutions will also support additional services, including parking management, food ordering, asset tracking, interactive directories, fitness access, security and user feedback, all of which can help drive utilization of onsite services by making them more easily accessible and consumable on mobile.
“We are very excited to continue winning new business with large multinational companies even while business, markets and life remain materially disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Alan S. Knitowski, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Phunware. “These endorsements of MaaS in such complex, multinational corporate campus environments define the core value in scale and reach that our software and infrastructure provides on mobile for mission critical digital transformation initiatives. Importantly, they also establish a strong foundation for future customer wins as traditional demand begins normalizing again over time and business gets back to work.”
A key competitive market differentiator for employers with MaaS is the ability to deliver a fully-integrated corporate campus experience on mobile that leverages Phunware’s patented Location Based Services (LBS) software and beacon management solution. These native, mobile-first capabilities deliver proximity, sub one-second real-time blue dot indoor positioning, navigation and wayfinding functionality across any campus or facility while simplifying and streamlining the underlying beacon deployment and management for both the facility staff and administrators alike.
The MaaS corporate campus solution for mobile is not only ADA compliant, addressing the needs of anyone who is visually impaired, hearing impaired or wheelchair bound, but also provides seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor environments with advanced battery management across GPS, wi-fi and beacons. Phunware’s MaaS LBS functionality can even help corporations handle real-time emergency response and critical event scenarios on mobile by contacting and dynamically routing employees and visitors to safety, while simultaneously guiding first responders to an identified threat or emergency requiring immediate attention and precise action.
