DIGITAL WAYFINDING SOLUTIONS

Conferences, meetings and corporate events may only last for a few hours,but during any function, clear and easy to read signage is always a must for your guests. Using Navaho’s MediaCAT Digital Signage Solution, information can be tailored to the event in a matter of seconds to display Wayfinding, welcome messages, hotel and venue facility information or event specific related details 

 

Wayfinding is a term used to describe the ways people orient themselves and navigate from place-to-place. We’ve all seen the traditional, static wayfinding signage – the signposts with multiple arrows pointing people in various directions or a map in a Shopping Centre entrance indicating, “YOU ARE HERE”. While these signs and devices may be effective in places like hospitals and university campuses, certain businesses need to provide more than just navigation cues.

By offering up-to-the-minute information on meeting locations and scheduling changes, digital wayfinding signs ensure that visitors can navigate a large hotel or conference centre,

for example with minimal stress. One of the main advantages of using digital signs and

displays for wayfinding purposes is that it uses both visual and auditory cues for navigation, and is thus multi-sensory and more engaging, and therefore more efficient in directing and guiding pedestrians, or even vehicular, traffic.
