Mapiq is a Dutch scale up and frontrunner in the development of smart building platforms. With headquarters in Delft, The Netherlands it creates a unified, cloud-based platform that helps optimize workspaces and activate the true potential of employees. Mapiq is a software platform that shows your office building in an interactive 3D map. Employees can use Mapiq to book rooms, find their way around the building, search for free workplaces, find their colleagues, and much more. It works like personalized Google for Smart Workplace. Facility managers and building owners can use data collected by Mapiq to make well thought out decisions about their office spaces.
“The workspace has become more open and dynamic than ever before. Being able to work anytime, anywhere, provides great flexibility. However, this way of working often decreases the amount of face-to-face contact in the office. Technology with its unique twist, brings people and teams back together,” said Sander Schutte, Founder & CEO of Mapiq.
Wipro will implement Mapiq into their of Internet of Lighting (IoL)TM - Smart Building Proposition. For Mapiq this partnership represents the global ambitions of the company. The agility and innovation from a Dutch scale-up and the experience and service from one of the most recognized technology companies is promising formula for a global roll-out. The first Smart building in India arising from this partnership is expected to go live before summer 2019.
