How Can Indoor Navigation Maps Help Businesses Attract More Customers

Missing the flight is not an option as you stand to lose multi-million dollar sales opportunity. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a navigation map of the airport on your phone that tells you precisely where the departure gate of your flight is located and the fastest route to get there?
