Solu is a simple web application meant for making it easy to find colleagues, meeting rooms and other resources in an office. It has a self service model without any authentication or permission checks, where anyone can find and update any resource's information.

The name "Solu" comes from "Self-service Office Locator and Updater". It is also a word in the Finnish language and means "cell" (biology).
