The Aruba Meridian integration allows you to associate Aruba Meridian maps and placemarks with Chargifi venues and Spots, enabling users to easily find wireless charging facilities while encouraging them to avail themselves of additional facilities such as bars, cafes, restaurants, and office spaces.
The integration has the following features:
- Users can get turn-by-turn directions to the closest available wireless charging Spot.
- The status of your Spots (In Use, Available or Offline) is automatically updated in real-time on your Aruba Meridian placemarks.
- Placemarks are displayed on users’ mobile devices with the Spot status to complement your existing facilities.
To facilitate integrating Chargifi Spots with Aruba Meridian maps and placemarks, you’ll need to have the following:
- Aruba Meridian license
- Meridian Editor account
- Meridian customized map of your facilities
