Enable visitors to get where they need to be

Visitors get lost frequently in large, complex venues. Our “blue dot” technology creates interactive routes for visitors and staff when on-site to ensure they get where they need to be, turn by turn and on time, via the most efficient route. Visitors can also preview digital maps on our web-based solution to pre-plan their routes.

Navigate from off-site to a specific room in your venue

Google Maps is the most popular smartphone app ever, with more than a billion users per month. Our wayfinding solution integrates with popular navigation apps like Google Maps so you can start your journey to a specific room from any location. We're also integrated with popular lift-share apps, like Lyft and Uber to navigate to your campus, then once your users reach your building, they'll switch back to your app and be directed to their destination.

Increase staff productivity and efficiency

Lost visitors in large complex venues ask staff for help in navigating around, meaning staff are constantly getting interrupted from their work to assist them. This creates a lot of wasted staff time, with interruptions taking up to 10 minutes. With digital wayfinding, visitors will have an outlined turn-by-turn route around the facility, reducing the need for staff help. With fewer interruptions, staff are more efficient and satisfied with their work.

Average staff interruption for directions is 10 minutes
Reduce wasted staff time by allowing people to self-navigate
Visitors have an accurate turn-by-turn map instead of asking staff

VCU Health Case Study

VCU Health implemented Purple’s digital wayfinding solution to assist patients in navigating their medical center.

Wayfinding involves guiding people from one location to another using traditional maps, signs, and landmarks. Digital wayfinding enhances this process by utilizing technology such as smartphones and interactive kiosks, providing dynamic maps and step-by-step directions.

Real-Time Location Services (RTLS) are advanced technologies used to track assets, people, or equipment in real-time within a defined area, enhancing operational efficiency and asset management in various industries.

The blue dots on your navigation indicate your real-time location on a map, enabling effective navigation using GPS technology. This helpful feature is commonly found in navigation apps and maps for easy wayfinding.

RTLS stands for Real-Time Location Services.

A wayfinding system is a collection of visual cues, signs, and digital elements such as interactive displays and mobile apps, designed to guide people through a specific environment efficiently.

Digital wayfinding is a technology-driven navigation system that uses interactive maps, touchscreens, and mobile apps to assist people in finding their way in complex indoor and outdoor spaces.
