Phunware, Inc. (NASDAQ: PHUN) has been selected by CIO Applications as one of the Top 10 Indoor Positioning Solution Providers for 2019 in its September issue.
The tech magazine said the list was compiled by a team of highly experienced industry experts, chief information officers (CIO), chief technology officers (CTO), along with its editorial team, who assessed firms in the Indoor Positioning Solutions space to short-list the companies.
Phunware’s hardware-agnostic, Multiscreen as a Service (MaaS) platform can take location data from a wide range of device types, networks and sensors, including GPS (Global Positioning Solutions), Wi-Fi access points, physical and virtual Bluetooth (BLE) beacons, accelerometers, compasses and now even cutting-edge smart lighting.

In a statement, Randall Crowder, Phunware’s chief operating officer commented: “Context-aware, location-based marketing is the future of mobile engagement, because it enables brands to get the right message to the right consumer at the right time in the right place.”
“For example, our location technology allows brands to autonomously reward and compensate consumers with Phun utility tokens for any profitable behaviors that they perform in the real world,” he added.
Phunware’s revolutionary three-dimensional software fusion technology leads the industry in location accuracy, with precision down to 4 centimeters, in real-time, to enable everything from wayfinding to navigation location sharing to real-time location triggers and services – even for the visually, hearing and physically impaired.
Numerous patents for location technology
Luan Dang, Phunware’s co-founder and Chief Technology Officer pointed out: “We have received numerous patents for our location technology since inception in 2009.”
“Over the past decade, these patents have enabled us to accurately locate mobile devices both indoors and outdoors, onshore and offshore, on the ground and in the air, with virtually no latency, in real-time, to deliver flawless user and 1:1 user interaction experiences on mobile.”
Phunware’s MaaS Location Based Services Software (LBS) Development Kits (SDKs) can be seamlessly integrated into any iOS or Android mobile application portfolios for brands and their mobile audiences in order to provide feature-rich, interactive maps and triggers for real-time indoor positioning, navigation, wayfinding, engagement, loyalty and monetization.
Thanks to its advanced caching, technology fusion and machine learning software, the MaaS LBS SDK in-app navigation experience on mobile continues uninterrupted even if application users lose their Wi-Fi or network connectivity.
