Transforming indoor wayfinding
MapsPeople is a renowned provider in indoor wayfinding. MapsPeople’s wayfinding platform, MapsIndoors, is built on Google Maps and offers a seamless transition from outdoor to indoor navigation. The familiarity of Google Maps enables the user to maintain a consistent experience navigating from their doorstep to inside a venue.
The MapsIndoors Content Management System (CMS) interfaces with most indoor positioning devices, such as WIFI, Bluetooth beacons or positioning based on the Earth’s magnetic field. The CMS enables users to manage and utilise their location information services, such as push notifications, to notify the user of important updates or offers available within a certain proximity and improve the overall user experience. MapsPeople has built the CMS to integrate with existing mobile and desktop devices or serve as a stand alone platform.
Liveli is a partner of MapsPeople and can offer licensing and support to help utilise the indoor wayfinding platform.

Fans want to get to their seats as quickly as possible for kickoff. Customers can now stay in the Google Maps environment from their doorstep to their seat. The MapsIndoors platform offers insights into how fans move around the stadium which can be used to make informed decisions about where food and drink vendors and merchandise stalls are located. Customers can use the indoor map to find the closest stalls and navigate the nearest point of entry and exit is from their seat, to minimise their wait times.
Vendors can engage directly with fans using their mobiles in the stadium through location-based push notifications. The platform offers a means of leveraging the customers location to send push notifications to fans about special offers to boost food, beverage and merchandise sales.
Every university student and staff member has felt the pain of stumbling through unfamiliar buildings trying to find their classrooms for the semester or their exam venue. Our capability partners, NGIS have experience in building campus wayfinding solutions (link Murdoch) however, MapsIndoors offer an additional layer of support through their indoor navigation in the building. A digital wayfinding solution enables staff and students to seamlessly transition from campus wide to in-building navigation.
Universities can easily update the solution without programming experience and can stay proactive in helping students navigate security points, medical services and accessible entry points to improve their university experience.
Visitors can often feel confused or overwhelmed at conventions when trying to navigate through the maze of different booths. The MapsIndoors solution helps organisers optimise booth pricing based on high traffic areas. Booth exhibitors can then engage directly with visitors near their booths through location-based push notifications to send special offers or booth information.
Visitors can use the platform to customise their route through the convention floor easily. Planning their route prior to the conference saves the user time and improve their convention experience.
Travellers are often feeling stressed when waiting in long queues or discover a last minute gate change. The MapsIndoors platform helps airports alleviate these challenges by providing optimised routing to help travellers get to their gates quickly or send push notifications about gate changes.
When the stress of travelling is reduced, travellers can spend time browsing stores and dining. Airports are able to utilise passenger behaviour information to decide where to advertise, modify store rental pricing and improve the traveller’s overall airport experience.
Most people find visiting a hospital quite a daunting experience, and 9 times out of 10 end up having to ask a member of staff for directions. Feeling lost stresses patients and visitors and having to show people around takes away valuable time from hospital staff.
With MapsIndoors you can offer patients, visitors, and staff an in-app indoor wayfinding solution to improve their experience, and also help hospital management optimise the use of resources.
