Building your own Wayfinding System:
How Wayfinding Pro enables subscribers to design interactive wayfinding systems for web, kiosk and mobile
The Benefits of Interactive Wayfinding
Implementing a wayfinding system has many benefits in addition to assisting visitors with navigation. Interactive wayfinding systems not only provide building to building and department to department directions, but also a multitude of extended features. The wayfinding app is capable of providing an alert system and alternate directions in the event of an emergency. Staff directories and event calendars are also available for integration. The software is ADA compliant and can provide directions specifically for the handicapped. Integrating the QR code generator enables users to access the mobile app and view directions on the go.
Interactive wayfinding has been proven more effective than static signage. While signage can be a somewhat useful tool in wayfinding, it typically leaves visitors still confused and seeking staff assistance. Static signage typically requires an investment that is more than double what interactive wayfinding costs.
Building a wayfinding app with Wayfinding Pro
WFP is a software development tool that enables subscribers to build and design their own interactive wayfinding apps. With Wayfinding Pro, users are able to select an interface layout from a series of options and upload their maps and floor plans for plotting. WFP makes designing a web, kiosk or mobile wayfinding program simple. Line directions are applied to maps using the software development kit, which are then accompanied by auto generated text directions. Wayfinding Pro is the perfect tool not only for web programmers and developers, but everyone else too!
Why should I use Wayfinding Pro to build my app?
Interactive Wayfinding takes traditional wayfinding a step further and provides visitors with access to maps, step by step directions and directories. Wayfinding Pro gives its subscribers the ability to easily develop their wayfinding projects for a fraction of what typical wayfinding development costs. WFP was developed to serve the needs of normal, every day people. Those that may not have a programming back ground or thousands to invest in wayfinding software.
