Why Invest In i-Wayfinding?

Our customers can choose to integrate i-Wayfinding with their interactive hospital check-in kiosks presenting a digital map to patients after they have completed their check-in or use standalone interactive information kiosks located at key locations to display digital maps.

And for Hospitals that have invested in an Intelligent WiFi solution, patients can access an interactive wayfinding map from their smartphones that will lead them to their destination with no fuss. This is particularly beneficial for improving the patient experience and providing clear directions in large hospitals or outpatient clinics.

Wayfinding also significantly reduces time spent by hospital staff repeating directions to patients on a frequent basis, allowing for more value-added tasks to be completed.

How Does i-Wayfinding Work?

The first step in creating your own i-Wayfinding experience is to produce high-quality maps of your buildings layout and to transform floor plans into visually pleasing digital maps.

These exceptional maps can be displayed online, on information kiosks/screens, and can also be accessed on your mobile phone for an enhanced navigation experience for your visitors.

i-Wayfinding utilises hybrid technology including BLE beacons, WiFi access points and geomagnetic positioning to accurately track a visitor’s location indoors via a ‘blue dot’.

By utilizing the built-in magnetometer and other smartphone sensors, we can use the magnetic field inside buildings to pinpoint and track visitors within 3 – 5 feet.

This hybrid technology approach results in the requirement of less hardware, thereby reducing the initial and ongoing costs, making i-Wayfinding a very cost-effective, reliable and sustainable proposition for all organistations that are looking to benefit from a wayfinding solution.
