Phunware Inc (NASDAQ:PHUN) announced Tuesday that Cisco Systems Inc (NASDAQ:CSCO) subsidiary Meraki now features the company’s multiscreen-as-a-service (MaaS) location-based services (LBS) app in its digital marketplace.
Cisco Meraki provides cloud-controlled WiFi, routing and security from a centralized dashboard, and the Meraki Marketplace is an exclusive catalog of apps from technology partners such as Phunware. Using the marketplace, customers can view, demo and play commercial solutions.
Phunware’s LBS app offers real-time blue dot indoor positioning, navigation and wayfinding across a campus or facility. The software is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), addressing the needs of anyone who is visually impaired, hearing impaired or who uses a wheelchair, and allows anyone to transition between indoor and outdoor environments.
Phunware’s app joining the Meraki Marketplace builds on a recently announced alliance with its channel partner Cisco.
“We recently announced a collaboration debut between Phunware and Cisco Webex called the On My Way mobile app portfolio for South by Southwest (SXSW) attendees in March in conjunction with the Cisco Innovation Hub at Capital Factory, where I’ll be discussing three-dimensional cognitive workspaces,” Phunware COO Randall Crowder said in a statement.
“The Meraki Marketplace will now provide Phunware an important channel to thousands of Cisco Meraki customers across more than 100 countries worldwide who need the very best LBS solutions for their network environments without the risk of deploying unproven technology.”
Other features of Phunware’s LBS app include:
- Indoor routing and navigation
- Off-route notifications
- Location sharing

- Simple real-time map management
- Additional real-time location services
