The 4 companies combine their technologies & expertise to deliver a French-made best-in-class innovative mobile solution that will improve the experience of the 40,000 daily expected visitors on the 200,000sqm site of Le Bourget.
Paris (France), November 30, 2015 – Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, Cardiweb, a innovative e-business & mobile solution provider, Pole Star, the pioneer and leader of indoor mobile location solutions, and Visioglobe, the European leader in 3D interactive mapping solutions, are delivering the official mobile application of the Paris Climate Change Conference (COP21), held in Le Bourget (France) from 30 November to 11 December, 2015.
Powered by Schneider Electric, the Official COP21 App is a multi-platform mobile application (Android and iOS) that combines useful services for the 40,000 daily expected visitors to digitally transform their COP21 experience. The App not only enables attendees to access the official agenda, bookmark favorites, follow Twitter feeds and look for practical information but it also provides the best possible routes to, from and within Le Bourget site, by any transportation mode and based on areas of interest (exhibitors, conferences, demos, etc.) Finally, thanks to the related Official COP21 Meet-Me Application, delegates also have the opportunity to share their real time position with pre-selected contacts thus optimizing networking during the conference.
This best-in-class mobile solution is the result of the successful collaboration of four French tech companies: Schneider Electric, Cardiweb, Pole Star and Visioglobe. Passionate about innovation, their teams shared their expertise and combined their technologies to create & design the application in less than three months. Schneider Electric, official partner of the COP21, provided its Workplace Efficiency platform, an IoT-enabled digital tool which gathers data from connected systems, devices, sensors, and occupants for centralized work environment management. Pole Star thanks to a deep knowledge and broad field experience of large events and exhibitions brought its NAO Campus® technology, an easy-to-implement, flexible and reliable indoor location solution. Visioglobe used its VisioMove technology to provide useful, easy and fast navigation, and its VisioMapEditor to allow users to create maps that are intuitive, clear and aesthetic. Finally, by integrating data and tools, CARDIWEB developed the iOS and Android applications tuned to the needs of every participant of the COP21.
This comprehensive and innovative application demonstrates how digital technologies can unlock added value in intelligent space & building management. Leveraging on this successful experience, Schneider Electric, Cardiweb, Pole Star and Visioglobe are working together on large connected building projects to transform life and enrich usage for owners, operators and occupants.
