Back to school with wayfinder

September 22, 2022

More and more schools are using wayfinder kiosks. Besides building plans and directories, touch screens are useful for providing information and promoting upcoming events. They are a good way to show lesson plans, contact data and transportation schedules.

Have you ever got lost in school? You might remember your first day in college and looking for your classroom. Besides dealing with natural first day stress and anxiety, you now have to look for the right room and worry that you will be late for class.

If you don’t remember this, then maybe you have been to an university building for a seminar or a conference, looking for the right room. You don’t have the time to wonder around and first thing you do is look for a building plan.

With wayfinding software it is much easier. You will see the upcoming seminar on the screen and with just one click, you will get directed to the right room in the right building. No more searching and wondering around.

Last year we finished setting up wayfinding solution for Haapsalu Vocational Education Center. They have a lot of students who are taking distance learning courses. As students drive to school 1 or 2 times a month. They are very happy to see wayfinding screen with a timetable.

It is possible to access these maps either through on-site kiosks, mobile apps or through a website. A mobile app would be a good choice as it can provide indoor positioning. This is excellent, as exhibitions are usually on such huge premises and quite crowded. Also, it is possible to integrate the mobile app or kiosk with various functions to assist with the overall organizing of the event. For instance, printing accreditation cards and coupons at the kiosk or giving people updates on weather and transport through the mobile app. The usage statistics can provide the organizers with helpful figures to make adjustments for the future.
