“Traveling can be an overwhelming and stressful experience, but navigating the airport doesn’t have to be,” said Jon Croy, co-founder and CMO of Point Inside. “Whether you are trying to find your gate, somewhere to eat before you depart, or the rideshare pick-up area, Point Inside’s airport maps help you know where you’re going every time.”
Point Inside’s updated map collection allows passengers to leverage point to point wayfinding with estimated travel times for their desired destination within the airport. Additionally, they can easily locate and determine routes to shops, restaurants and in-airport stores they are looking for during their time at the airport. The updated version of the map collection has a new, updated look and feel. All maps contain the latest information including current airport layouts, shops, restaurants and services. Furthermore, application developers are easily able to integrate third party data services such as: TSA wait times, flight information, rideshare services and parking availability providers.
“TripCase users find airport maps highly valuable as part of their trip experience,” said Vance Weintraub, Senior Product Manager at Sabre/TripCase. “Point Inside’s new airport maps make it even easier for travelers to search and find what they need while in the airport: the maps display shops and restaurants, plus departure gates, baggage claim carousels, ticketing desks, lounges, and other services. As a product manager, I’m most excited about Point Inside’s hosted maps. The initial integration only took a few hours and we’re done. Point Inside makes sure our map features are always state-of-the art without further integration work from our team.”
Point Inside’s new Flyer app featuring the maps is also available on iTunes, Google and Web. Developers looking to incorporate Point Inside’s already-existing map collection into their website or applications can request access to the Point Inside SDK.
