22Miles Launches Global Distribution Partnership With ecoPUK

Published: October 13, 2022

22Miles, experiential 3D wayfinding and digital signage technology provider, announced its exclusive global distribution partnership with ecoPUK, creator of the “Sustainably Smarter Signage” solution. The company asserts that amid growing customer demands for streamlined enterprise visual communications that prioritize both sustainability and employee experience, the partnership is both natural and timely.

In flexible workspaces, employees need the ability to reserve and locate rooms and hot desks, check into reserved spaces, incorporate remote collaborators into meetings, and access technical support quickly and easily.

While always-on digital room signage meets that need, it carries a significant cost. This is applicable in terms of both initial purchase price and energy usage over its three-to-five-year lifespan. ecoPUK thus offers a sustainable alternative to traditional room signage that can last up to a decade.

Manufactured from sustainable materials such as bamboo or recycled acrylic, ecoPUK have laser engraving with custom branding and a QR code. They also come with an NFC tag. When powered by the 22Miles content management system (CMS), these static panels enable instant access to dynamic experiences on personal mobile devices. With a simple tap or scan, users can access a browser-based or custom native app to:

  • Check room availability and resources.
  • Reserve a space.
  • Send meeting invitations to colleagues, including videoconferencing information for remote participants.
  • Automatically check in to a reserved space via SSO/AD integration.
  • Make tech support inquiries in real time.

The 22Miles CMS has an intuitive backend and user interface for easy updates and programming. It also features native integrations with Zoom, Teams, WebEx, Office 365, G Suite and Exchange.

Additionally, users can access the 22Miles industry-leading mobile 3D wayfinding solution to guide them to their reserved space. System administrators can also monitor space usage and instantly update content from the unified backend.

Commitment to Sustainability

“Many of our enterprise customers are passionately committed to reducing their carbon footprint,” says Tomer Mann, chief revenue officer for 22Miles. “At the same time, they’re facing the need to modernize the office for hybrid work. This partnership allows us to serve two needs that are otherwise in conflict.”

The partnership was inspired by a Fortune 500 client with a Net Zero Carbon Footprint commitment. This year, 22Miles and ecoPUK installed nearly 500 signs as a proof of concept. The customer swiftly ordered 250 more, expanding the project to encompass both U.S. and EU offices. It also came with the potential to incorporate another 6,000 across their global offices.

For this project, team deployed panels in both outside rooms for space reservations, and inside rooms for digital help guides, videos and instant help desk access. This continuously expanding project demonstrates that ecoPUK panels, powered by the 22Miles CMS, can provide a multifunctional digital experience alongside significant cost and energy savings.
