New Tech Developments in Wayfinding Signs

by Susan Bogen on January 14, 2016

Wayfinding signs are everywhere — hotels, grocery stores, office buildings, school and college buildings, hospitals, and everything in between. Wayfinding signs are the best way to help visitors find their way in new surroundings. They also help the regulars find new locations and new additions to the business.

Whether assisting hotel guests find their rooms or the pool, to locating the condiments or chips in aisle 12 at the grocery store, to showing the way to the bathroom or break room at an office building, wayfinding signs take the guesswork out of where to go.

Typically, Signarama designs these wayfinding signs with the help of a commercial interior designer to ensure the consistent look of the signage throughout the building.

For those people who want the latest and greatest in wayfinding technology, digital signs are the new wave of the future. These state of the art signs are digital, changeable, and completely flexible to fit in with a business’ needs.

Rather than creating a whole new sign whenever there are minor changes in the building, digital signage can just be changed with a few keystrokes. New menu items, board room names, or special events can all be changed on a digital wayfinding sign.

These digital signs are great for business owners who expect a lot of changes in the future. And while they may cost more upfront, they can save a lot of money in the long run, by avoiding repeated wayfinding sign changes. And if the digital sign is portable, it can recoup the initial cost by offering more flexibility than a fixed, traditional wayfinding sign.
