The Indoor Mapping Specialist
Jibestream is an indoor mapping specialist company and it develops the most robust and scalable indoor mapping engine in the world. The mapping engine is able to power and create an entire experience that becomes not just a more efficient route, but also a contextual, intersection of proximity and place with data and workflow.
When you navigate through a large public space, for example a US Veterans Affairs Hospital, using Jibestream’s solution, the app enhances both the patient experience and workflows for the hospital. From telling you where the closest parking lot is to your entrance, to checking you in. As you walk through the corridors and hallways, location aware technologies will detect where you are and provide you with step by step directions from leaving your car, to checking in to going to a lab or meeting with a nurse, to guiding you to the waiting room. The company’s technology guides you through what’s coming up and what’s happening. It’s about the process and making things easier and more efficient, it is not just the route; it is about improving the experience for the patient.
