One Fits All- Smart Office

In this modern era, everyone needs a “map” for navigation. When you want to visit a new place, you will need an interactive street map. When you want to reach that specific booth, you will need that venue’s map. When you order food, you will also need a map to track your shippers.

Steerpath has a long history of building indoor positioning and wayfinding experiences for cross-platform use. As part of this solution, the map engine plays a pivotal role, and rather than building their own, Steerpath opted to leverage the Mapbox map engine as a foundation. This high-quality and flexible map engine has now for years been a key piece in Steerpath’s SDK.

What is Mapbox anyway?

Mapbox is the location data platform for mobile and web applications. With similar functionalities as Google Maps, Mapbox alleviates the stress of cost increase while allowing more freedom for customization. Mapbox’s service is used by GitHub, Pinterest, Foursquare, and other popular companies. In addition, the company values open-source roots, thus constantly encouraging talented developers to actively analyze and improve the codebase.

Project Highlights

  • Helped to create a cross-platform application that works across Android, iOS, and Web, incorporating existing SDK with React Native
  • Met the deadline in less than 3 months
  • Understood the urgent needs and requirements of the partner, thus helped to create a product that is not only cost-efficient but also long-term warrantied

The Challenge

In order to create a neat and properly functional app that works across all platforms like Twitter, it takes a great deal of time to finish and refine the final product. However, Steerpath needed the app in less than 3 months, and that was when Reactron Technologies jumped in.


Taking a step further from Steerpath’s initial plan for creating SmartSDK to homogenize the platform APIs, Reactron Technologies has helped to realize the approach of using React Native and build a universal app that is both cross-platform functional and sustainable. We worked alongside the in-house team from start to finish.

Why React Native?

• React Native can run on various platforms, including the Web. In fact, React Native for Web allows a single code base to be compiled to unlimited targets, consisting of Desktop Web, Desktop app with Electron, Mobile iOS, mobile iPad, macOS with Catalyst project, Android mobile, and even Android tablet.

• With its versatile function in cross-platform, React Native is the final piece to solve the puzzle of cost-cutting.

• Compared to Xamarin, Flutter, and Ionic, React Native has the most mature cross-platform backing support of Amazon, Facebook, and even Microsoft, indicating future-proof sustainability of the final product.


After careful consultation with Steerpath, together with an agile working process and expertise in React Native, Reactron Technologies helped to deliver a cross-platform app that runs smoothly on both iOS and Android, while it can also be a responsive web app on mobile and desktop. We were happy to help our partner accomplish their mission on time, and even more ecstatic to know that they were pleased with the result.

Steerpath and Reactron have managed to replicate the same functionality of the successful Twitter, and this is only the beginning of our other future success stories.
