April 23, 2018

We’ve had a busy start to 2018, adding another directory to our line-up and showcasing our software at three of the top trade-shows in our industry. We’ve gained valuable learnings from talking to end-users and partners about current wayfinding needs in the market. These learnings along with those we gain from our current customers, continues to help us evolve the Mappedin Platform. As always, we welcome any feedback that could further improve your reading experience.

NEW! Mappedin Print

Mappedin Print enables properties to maintain accurate wayfinding experiences across both digital and static kiosks. Our print exporter tool within the Mappedin CMS makes changes to structural, tenant, and aesthetics simple.
