The User Experience

Indoor pedestrian wayfinding presents different challenges than driving navigation. Photo landmarks are simply more effective and more intuitive for helping us find our way indoors or around campuses.

Scientifically Proven

Photo landmark navigation employs scientific wayfinding best practices and simple universal icons to make it intuitive for any demographic or language group.

Photos not Maps

Navigate by swiping from photo to photo. Combining what you see in the environment with simple schematic direction and easy-to-follow text-based instruction is more intuitive than abstracting your location and direction from the plan view of a map.

Visualization not Interpretation

People naturally use landmarks to generate mental maps of their surroundings and remember the navigational instruction set that ties them together.

Reduces Stress and Anxiety

Not only are hospitals notoriously difficult facilities to navigate, but we often visit the hospital under stressful conditions overwhelmed with negative emotions. Wayfinding is complicated in these circumstances and a very simple and reliable user experience is required.

Key Features

Unparalleled wayfinding performance, scalability, and reliability.

Affordable and Scalable

No beacons, hardware or network infrastructure upgrades are required. No need for constant internet connectivity.

Go-live in Weeks not Months

Eyedog Wayfinding-as-a-Service offers a streamlined implementation process. You give us your blueprints and we handle the rest.

Omni-channel Availability

Multiple deployment options including native iOS/Android and responsive web allow you to offer wayfinding broadly to all patients and visitors and personalized in the context of the patient journey such as embedded in appointment reminders.

Easy to Maintain and Extend

Eyedog's intelligent architecture makes updating pathways simple and immediate. Shutting down hallways or elevators, relocating points-of-interest, or accommodating building expansion is all part of our WaaS offering and can be carried out as quickly as your facility changes.

Scientific Research says…

Don’t take our word for it, take theirs.

Landmarks are ideal wayfinding tools for directing a person from A to B as they allow fast reasoning and efficient communication.

The use of landmarks is often linked with the quality of route instructions as they are related to the natural cognitive navigation process of humans.

One of the most important elements wayfinding best practices acknowledges, is that most orientation occurs via landmark for any building user.

Landmarks are better for indoor navigation

Many people have difficulties interpreting maps and other abstract visualizations of space. Research acknowledges that indoor maps are a compromised interface for people finding their way in complex environments.
