NEW YORK (September 25, 2018) – Connexient is pleased to announce that Gartner, a global research and advisory firm, has named it a “Cool Vendor” in its September, 2018 report “Cool Vendors in Location Services for Wayfinding.” The report highlights interesting, new companies that are providing solutions for Digital Wayfinding and Location Services in large complex buildings and campuses.
Gartner Analyst, Tim Zimmerman advises Infrastructure & Operation leaders “should evaluate new and innovative technologies that don’t require any interaction with the enterprise infrastructure, while providing navigational guidance to anyone that needs to get to his or her destination. The ability to integrate different location services, provides infrastructure flexibility, and the hands-free implementation capabilities of managed services or expertise of professional service offerings makes it easier for organizations to deploy wayfinding solutions.”
“With over 50 hospital clients and 10 strategic partnerships, Connexient is driving innovation and ROI with digital wayfinding and enterprise indoor navigation services in healthcare,” said CEO and Co-founder, Mark Green. “Furthermore, our recent Series A funding from Riverside Capital enables us to scale our sales and support resources to continue growing in the healthcare space. Our strategic relationships with Pole Star, Mist, Sonitor and CenTrak allow MediNav to use a diverse set of location services infrastructure providers, ensuring that we are in alignment with our clients smart building & IOT technology strategies.”
“We are grateful to receive this recognition from Gartner” said Geoff Halstead, Connexient’s Chief Product Officer. “Our Navigator Edition v3 features the world’s most robust and intuitive turn-by-turn indoor navigation - with voice guidance, audio prompts, and off-route notification - that we have proven works at scale in very large and complex facilities and campuses. It is packed with cool features such as Parking Planner and My Car Saver, which solve the real world pain points of users - and ‘Meet Me’ - which makes meeting up with family and friends easy because either the user’s current location or a common destination can be shared.”
More than just a mobile application, the MediNav SDK enables indoor maps, navigation and location services to be integrated with enterprise Patient Experience applications, as well as other concierge services, such as parking applications to assure the closest parking spot to the client destination, or with valet services to have the car ready when the driver arrives.
