Testimonial

“The Locatify UWB indoor positioning complements the interactive, immersive, full-sensory experience of the Newt’s ‘Story of Gardening’. Being prompted by the tablet as one enters a different room or walks up to an exhibit gives a true sense of connectedness with the space and the exhibits.”

– Arthur Cole, Head of Programmes for the Visitor Attraction
