Digital building directories are an effective way to direct your visitors to their final destination when they visit your premises – designed well, they are an instantly welcoming tool for Building and Facility Managers to use as a virtual concierge for their building.
Building directories are moving rapidly from static displays requiring time-consuming manual updates to easy-to-update impactful digital building directories. Facility management teams are communicating with residents and tenants in real-time with eye-catching digital displays that are welcomed by tenants and impress investors alike.
New commercial building developments are expected to include current technologies, visitor management and visual communication throughout. Investors are looking at plans and designs of the building and expecting to see tech-savvy inclusions.
For commercial and mixed properties that are due for modernisation, static wayfinding directories requiring time-consuming updates and are often left unmaintained or not up to date with current information are being scrapped for good reason. They can be overlooked as a communication tool by management due to the time it takes to update and due to permanent residents, tenants and frequent visitors overlooking the static displays as they arrive to the premises each time. They have been overtaken by much more unique, interactive and intuitive digital wayfinding systems.
Moving to digital, eye-catching displays alleviates this problem for dated facilities and effectively adds a new way to communicate messages quickly throughout the building. As facilities freshen up the interiors or renovate and modernise, moving to a digital building directory can enhance the look of a space and give the building a new tech-savvy appearance to potential investors and new tenants. Making a move to digital can breathe new life into what was an outdated foyer while enhancing the communication between building and facility managers and visitors to your premises.
Building your new residential or commercial space with a digital building directory as part of the fit out will have your premises opening with the right tools on hand to create an impression right from the start.
