Since 2017 SPACE Platform has been organising one of the largest unorganised datasets: malls, shops, products and services.

With the platform launching this week, you will now be able to search products, shops, places, brands and shopping malls and get personal recommendations.

The technology is not limited to shopping centres, people can also search for public drinking fountains, benches to sit or the accessible facilities available.

Using a combination of hardware and software, SPACE is radically changing and improving how people experience physical places. While also offering solutions for operators of large commercial buildings and local governments to understand their visitors better and make fact-based decisions, rather than estimates on how people use their spaces.
