You’ve heard about indoor navigation and you realize it is exactly what you need. The next step? Knowing how much it will cost. At MapsPeople we don’t have fixed prices because our solutions are always customized to your needs, so what exactly determines the price of a MapsIndoors solution?
1. The Size of the Venue
The price of your MapsIndoors solution is based on the surface area of the building you are wanting to map. The larger the area, the lower the per (square) metre price.
2. Your Indoor Positioning Needs
We can provide you with an accurate indoor map, but if you are wanting the blue dot experience, heat maps with insights on people flow, or location-based marketing, you’ll need an Indoor Positioning System (IPS). We work with partners that provide the IPS technology which is then fed into your indoor navigation solution. The more accuracy you need, the stronger the IPS system is needed. This implies that your choice of IPS will have an impact on the price of the MapsIndoors solution.
For more information on positioning systems and what they can do for you, have a look at our blog “Indoor Positioning Systems - Complete Guide” and “Top 4 Advantages and Disadvantages of Indoor Positioning Systems”.
3. Additional Requirements
You can use our maps as they are, or they can easily be integrated with a great number of third-party systems. However, the needs of your particular solution may require us to develop new features, which will have an impact on the price of the final product. Our regional sales managers will be happy to discuss your needs with you to give you the best possible solution. From there, you can choose from three different packages:
Out of the box
Use the MapsIndoors app as it is. We’ll set up the look and feel parameters we can without further development. This is the perfect choice for you if you need an accurate and user-friendly indoor map without all the additions. Just use the MapsIndoors as it is.
Do it yourself
“Do it yourself” is our most popular package. A perfect match for you who want to integrate MapsIndoors in your own environment and apps. We'll provide initial startup support and you'll do the rest.
If you need specific features and customized development, “Enterprise” is the solution for you. We’ll engage in discussions and development of specific requirements and do the hard work for you.
So there you have it, a list of all of the elements that play a role in the cost of your indoor navigation solution. We are dedicated to making maps in a way that works best for you and your needs, and that means customizing each solution to the building and the company.
