For the web app, Purple will configure the web domain then share it with you for feedback. A round of edits is possible at this point, before the app is launched and advertised for use. Optional testing in the web app is possible.
As part of the Wayfinding mobile set up, Purple create a dedicated app that your visitors can use to navigate around your location.
If utilizing indoor pathfinding, Purple will develop and 'fingerprint' the Wayfinding solution before deploying your app. Fingerprinting involves using a digital floor plan of the building to collect geomagnetic data and identify walkable areas. Initial required edits can be made at this stage.
For the mobile app, there are three options:
1) You can choose to conduct additional testing for the mobile app.
2a) Purple handle the process for the Whitelabel solution.
2b) If integrating your own app, Purple provide the SDK.
If you're unsure of which step to take, ask your account manager or contact our support team using the chat functionality here.
The following is only applicable if Wayfinding is being set up as a Whitelabel solution by Purple. Purple will deploy the app and provide links to the working solution.
If you have any feedback, please pass this to the Purple team via the Google Sheets provided by our account manager.
