Favendo – an RTLS company since 2014

Starting in 2014 – just one year after Apple introduced the iBeacon magic – Favendo develops and markets indoor positioning solutions like wayfinding and asset tracking services for corporate customers.

The company specializes in indoor positioning and mobile tracking and navigation solutions. Long-standing customers include SAP, FRAPORT, Hammerson plc and MSC Cruises. Favendo solutions are used and distributed by Trilux and Phoenix Contact. Favendo created the RTLS Location Engine and indoor location application platform Commander and also uses input from partner companies such as Abeeway and Quuppa.

In the beginning we asked ourselves how to transfer the added value from eCommerce to stationary retail. The primary challenge was how to implement the product search, as known from Ebay, Amazon & Co., in stationary retail. This quickly developed into a fascination for searching, finding and tracking of goods and people in the real world at all.

Today, our professional products are designed to help our clients find and locate things, people and places. We enable app users to do this search on their mobile phones and we enable organizations to find what they are looking for as efficiently as possible. We provide our clients with information on where to find what they are looking for and how to get there.

Our success is based on our international team members’ skills, creativity and engagement. A competent staffed advisory council and huge market experience are providing support in strategic decision-making.

Favendo is also a proud partner of the Omlox Initiative. Omlox is the market’s answer to the challenges every company is currently facing: increasing efficiency by merging the digital and real worlds. Positioning and localization technologies play a particularly important role in this process. As the first global IoT standard, Omlox represents a quantum leap in terms of the optimal digitization strategy. With the new standard, different localization technologies such as Bluetooth, ultra-broadband, RFID or GPS can be linked together. The focus here is on the networked factory. More about Omlox.
