Indoor Wayfinding Solutions
What is Indoor Wayfinding, Interactive Indoor Maps?
Indoor wayfinding solutions brings all the known benefits of outdoor navigation indoors. It provides users with a digital navigation tool, which helps them find their way around large indoor spaces using only their smartphones.
Traditionally, organisations would use maps or information desks when they needed directions inside a building but with interactive indoor maps, indoor wayfinding has become digital.
How does indoor wayfinding work?

When checking in, a map to the visitor’s meeting room, along with directions, is displayed on the Vgreet screen. A visitor can also choose to have the map and directions sent to their smart device.
During their visit, visitors can also use Vgreet’s Indoor Wayfinding Solution to locate areas of interest such as toilets, restaurant and exit points.
