SPREO’s mapping and location platform brings a newfound level of innovation and leadership to an emerging industry. SPREO’s cloud-based system facilitates map management, mobile engagement via proximity triggers, user and asset visualization on maps, wayfinding and more. SPREO is proud to be selected as a Cool Vendor in the September 2018 report, Cool Vendors in Location Services for Wayfinding, by Gartner, Inc.

SPREO’s innovative approach to indoor maps is the merging of location intelligence with Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). SPREO makes it possible to build an indoor location application that includes a chat bot. Using voice or text input, users can ask for directions, search for a point of interest, or even say something more specific such as:

"I need a conference in building 200 that fits 7 for tomorrow at 2 p.m."
"I would like to find all infusion pumps on the second floor."
"What are the cafeteria's lunch specials for Tuesday?"
"Take me to room 314."

An application built with SPREO’s platform will provide matching results gathered from multiple map data layers and integrated scheduling and asset tracking systems.

SPREO partners with software and solution providers across markets to easily integrate SPREO’s solution into any and every setting involving large and complex corporate and industrial campus environments.
