VisGuide GUI

VisGuide GUI

VisGuide offers one of the best GUI (graphical user interface) worldwide - whether for conference room booking, advertising or a simple welcome screen. All connected screens are constantly supplied with new content.

If a new event is booked spontaneously, the monitor contents are updated automatically.

Software & Doorplates

Software & Doorplates

VisGuide software and the digital door signs - VisDoor are designed to show greetings as well as information in all possible languages, eg Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Arabic ...

VisDoor

VisDoor

In front of each conference room, digital door signs (VisDoor) are installed, which display the current meetings in a time-controlled manner. In addition, the visitors to the model VisDoor BusinessLine Already remotely informed by a light frame whether the room is free or occupied.

News ticker

The ticker module is a universal utility for all types of ticker applications today:

The ticker concept of VisGuide is probably unique. First, the user can choose to use the automatic display of an RSS feed (that is, pre-made content retrieved from a website) or to place a text message of their own as a ticker. All composed text messages are storable so that they can be reactivated and updated at any time. The possibility of using different pleadings is especially helpful for foreign guests: Russians, Chinese and Japanese can be addressed with the help of their own characters.

  • Colors for fonts and backgrounds are freely definable
  • Transparency for fonts and backgrounds
  • Special characters from foreign languages
  • Various pleadings (russian, japanese ...)
  • All entries can be stored and edited
  • RSS feed or individual text input

Flash messages

For urgent cases, in which messages must be displayed quickly and directly on the monitors, we offer the possibility to enter flash messages. These can be life-saving. Here are some examples:

  • FIRE - leave the building
  • SHOTS - include yourself
  • EARTHQUAKE - leave the building
  • Pausendeende - Please take your seats

Distribution of information

Direct control of the displays

Another security feature is the built-in control of the connected displays. This allows the operator to check from their workstation which image a specific monitor currently displays. In this case, REAL is sent an image of the current display via the data line.

Advertising

VisGuide is an excellent medium for the transmission of advertising messages, because on the one hand all kinds of advertising messages can be represented (from advertising films up to spontaneously written offers), on the other hand these messages can be shown time-oriented.

Target group-oriented advertising

Individual presentation format

Drinks and meals can be booked individually for each conference at the click of a mouse. The transmission to the catering takes place automatically by E-Mail. Changes to orders are automatically resent.

Special status of VIP rooms

Special status of VIP rooms

The inspection and booking of VIP rooms can only be done with special authorization. So discretion can be maintained. With a "general" authorization these premises are not accessible.

Connection to external programs

Connection via MS Outlook

Connection via Lotus Notes

In large organizations, it is common today for sales representatives and clerks to post their numerous appointments via external programs.
Thus, appointments, participating employees, external personnel and the premises are efficiently coordinated and booked via Microsoft Outlook (in connection with Exchange server) or via Lotus Notes. Blackberry bookings are also possible.

VisGuide optionally has Exchange and Domino as well as other interfaces to communicate with external programs.
At the same time, nothing changes in terms of the tried-and-tested way of working, as VisGuide independently takes over the bookings made from the Exchange server and asks the responsible employee for additional requests regarding catering, technical equipment and the design of the digital door signs from.

Accordingly, the data transfer and booking processing functions similarly with Lotus Notes and the Domino server.

Multi-Screen

With the multiscreen option, you are even freer in the design of your presentation on the information displays. Multiscreen allows you to present multiple simultaneous feeds on one monitor.

Thus, multimedia movies, video livestreams, tickers and static image content can be freely combined. Smooth playback is guaranteed in all windows.

Cafeteria / Restaurant

The presentation of the menus can be carried out flexibly and professionally with the help of VisGuide. Even several food distribution centers can be recorded simultaneously with individual menus.
