Mapwize and AppScho unveil partnership to provide best-in-class application for modern university campuses

Lille, FRANCE – January 23rd, 2020. Today, Mapwize, the leading indoor mapping CMS solution, and AppScho, the French leading provider of customized mobile applications for students and higher education institutions, announce their partnership for a unique on-campus experience.

The integration enables all types of institutions - business and engineering schools and universities - to provide their students, staff, and visitors with an optimal campus experience via a customized white-labelled mobile application.

Thanks to the combination of Mapwize's mapping technology and AppScho’s higher education mobile app solution, the overall branding of universities and the everyday lives of students, teacher-researchers, staff, guests, and visitors coming for events or conferences have been improved. Not only can students and visitors manage their whole student experience directly from their smartphones, but they can also locate their precise position on campus, search for any location of interest such as classrooms or conference rooms and automatically generate the most appropriate route. The app also offers those services for people with reduced mobility to make sure everyone can benefit from this innovation.

The multilingual mobile application, available on both Android and iOS devices, has already been successfully deployed at the Ecole Polytechnique and the CentraleSupélec universities.

The Mapwize-AppScho solution is now available to any university campus willing to provide in-app navigation.

Mapwize CEO Mederic Morel said: “AppScho is the perfect extension to our interactive mapping solution, allowing us to provide a complete navigation experience within a single mobile application. The app also features cafeteria menus, personal lesson plans for students, and grades.”

AppScho CEO Victor Wacrenier said: “Our partnership with Mapwize is a step forward in the development of our mobile apps. This interactive new feature will help students to easily explore campuses and is an absolute must-have for any modern and connected institution."
