Gimbal and Micello Sign Strategic Partnership Agreement for Indoor Maps Integration
June 23, 2016
Micello and Gimbal today signed an agreement that will result in the integration of Micello indoor maps into Gimbal’s platform.
“Indoor maps and navigation is one of the most interesting and compelling use cases for beacons, and fills a void not met with traditional technologies,” said Jeff Russakow, President and CEO at Gimbal. “We are excited to partner with Micello to better enable venue owners to leverage our suite of best in-class proximity and location solutions to do just that, and create an opportunity for user experiences that bring unprecedented accuracy and convenience indoors.”
The integration will allow venue owners, like shopping malls, airports, stadiums, business campuses, hospitals, retailers and others to import Micello indoor maps into the Gimbal platform. Micello indoor maps will be used to track the location of deployed Gimbal Places (which include Bluetooth beacons) and to view real-time analytics in the context of the indoor map. Venue owners can also use their Gimbal deployment to enable real-time indoor navigation with Micello products.
“Micello and Gimbal have been collaborating for several years,” said Ankit Agarwal, CEO at Micello, “We’re excited to see the upcoming integration efforts and are convinced that indoor maps will be a powerful and important enabler for the Gimbal platform and ecosystem. Gimbal has great reach and is quickly becoming the platform of choice for our venue customers around the world.”
Interested venue owners should contact Micello to sign up for early access.
