VITP mangement is proud to welcome Wifarer to VITP as our newest tenants! They have set up shop in one of our larger office spaces with the potential of building their own space in the Innov8 Hub in the future.

What does Wifarer do?

Wifarer builds indoor positioning apps for locations.   Their mobile software is powered by advanced indoor positioning and navigation technologies, and helps businesses connect with their customers in new ways. Their clients are hospitals, airports, museums, stadiums, shopping centers and universities, including such great venues as UBC, the Dallas Cwoboys Stadium, Vancouver International Airport, and the Royal BC Museum.  At the heart of their solution are their online tools, which make it simple to build and manage their apps. Their content management system allows clients to customize their app’s look and feel, add directories, and attach rich media to any indoor location.  Their analytics are breaking new ground, by combining traditional in-app search data with movement analytics to deliver extraordinary insights into customer behavior and venue use.

They are considered global leaders in indoor positioning technologies, with a robust portfolio of intellectual property related to indoor positioning and navigation.  Their research scientists are continuously refining algorithms and inventing the features that have established them as industry leaders. Early on, they mastered seamless indoor-outdoor navigation and refined their algorithms to ensure reliable floor transitions in multi-story locations. Their recent advances include improving indoor positioning accuracy even further with data from several different phone sensors, and pioneering exciting new machine-to-machine transactions.

Welcome to the Vancouver Island Technology Park Wifarer, we are excited to have you as part of the team! Read more about this exciting business here.
