Texas-based mobile app company Phunware is integrating its multiscreen-as-a-service (MaaS) with Signify subsidiary Cooper Lighting’s Trellix, a smart spaces application for commercial buildings.

Headquartered in Peachtree City, Georgia, Cooper Lighting provides professional lighting, lighting controls and connected lighting for indoor and outdoor use under numerous North American brand names such as Corelite, Halo, McGraw-Edison and Metalux. Trellix is an application designed to improve commercial building efficiency and occupant experience by more efficiently aggregating data provided by WaveLinx connected lighting systems and delivering actionable insights.

“Improving commercial building efficiency and occupant experience is a top priority of our customers,” said Eric Jerger, vice president at Cooper Lighting. “We can help solve these problems by providing proficient data from our lighting systems to leading mobile software providers like Phunware who in turn provide actionable insights. Industry collaboration is a core tenet of our vision to solve our customer’s highest valued challenges by leveraging the extraordinary power of intelligent lighting. We look forward to advancing our customers’ experience together with Phunware.”

Phunware’s mobile portfolio provides access to all of the features and capabilities of MaaS, including contactless digital access, room-booking, occupancy management, directories, check-in instructions, screenings, feedback tools, news, notifications and analytics as well as seamless access to third-party vendors.

“We are thrilled to integrate our platform with Trellix and offer one of the most advanced platforms available today that is designed to better manage any smart space,” said Randall Crowder, COO of Phunware. “MaaS is designed to better engage people on mobile, so the data provided by Trellix will help us ensure this engagement is meaningful, targeted and contextual.”

MaaS is a cloud platform for mobile that provides the products, data and services to engage, manage and monetise their mobile applications globally. Phunware’s software development kits include location-based services, mobile engagement, content management, messaging, advertising, loyalty schemes and analytics as well as a mobile application framework of pre-integrated iOS and Android software modules for building in-house or channel-based mobile applications.
