Seamlessly navigate visitors around your venue
We can help with even the most complex of venues. The blue dot travels with your visitors, even if they're changing floors or buildings, so they're always ready for their next steps. Users don't even need a phone signal or WiFi due to our Bluetooth solution. And if your guests go off-route, we'll automatically reroute them to get them back on track.
Provide for those with accessibility needs
1 in 4 adults has an accessibility need. When navigating around your facility, our wayfinding provides options for those requiring alternative mobility-aid-friendly routes. Our user interface follows the WCAG 2.0AA guidelines for colors, contrast levels, fonts, and a responsive design for all device types and keyboard accessibility.
Increase staff efficiency with fewer disruptions
When visitors get lost, they interrupt staff to help them navigate their way around. With fewer distractions, staff are able to work more effectively, making them more organized, focused, and satisfied with their work.
Navigate from off-site to a specific room in your venue
More than a billion people per month use Google Maps; the most popular smartphone app ever. Our wayfinding solution integrates with Google Maps so you can start your journey to a room from any location. We're also integrated with popular lift-share apps, like Lyft and Uber. Once your users reach your building, they'll switch back to your app and direct them to their destination.
Maximize your wayfinding budget with our geomagnetic technology
Our geomagnetic technology means we'll use 85% less hardware than other wayfinding solutions. We use natural geomagnetic fluctuations, BLE beacons, and WiFi to pinpoint a user's location within feet.

GPS signals do not work well indoors due to obstruction from structures, however Purple’s combination of WiFi positioning, Bluetooth beacons, and the Earth’s magnetic core provides highly accurate indoor navigation.
Wayfinding is crucial as it enables people to navigate complex environments like airports and hospitals with ease, reducing stress and enhancing the overall experience. Effective wayfinding can lead to increased customer satisfaction and improved efficiency for businesses.
Indoor navigation utilizes technologies like Bluetooth beacons and WiFi positioning to provide guidance and location-based services within buildings where GPS signals are limited.
Wayfinding means using navigational cues and aids like signs and maps to help individuals find their way in a specific environment, whether through physical signage or digital tools like interactive maps.
Indoor navigation is the process of navigating within buildings and enclosed spaces using specialized technologies like mobile apps and interactive kiosks to assist people in finding their way.
