How our wayfinding works
Oobeo wayfinding is incredibly easy to use and has a number of different configurations or integrations available. Here we will follow the most basic use cases. Our small file size means it works in even low connectivity environments, giving an advantage over app downloads or GPS solutions.
We use hospital landmarks, descriptions and photos to give patients the fastest way to find their destination with the easiest user experience available. Not only is it fully responsive and accessible but it is available in almost every language.
Directions sent via SMS on day of appointment
An optional way to start directions are via integration with an array of software products to automatically send directions to the visitors mobile phone on the day of their appointment or when they park using an integrated parking product.
Scan physical signage
The typical way to start a route, the visitor simply scans a QR code on physical signage in a car park, lobby or throughout the building that gives the user the ability to search for their destination.
Visitor follows turn-by-turn directions
Each step has a corresponding photograph, description and estimated time of travel and can be toggled for wheelchair accessible routes only.
Return route or leave feedback
Oobeo provides the user the ability to search the directory for a new destination, return their route back to where they started or to rate their journey and leave feedback for the route (which you can view or export in real-time).
Take mobility to the next level for a fraction of the cost
Every time a patient or visitor uses our navigation at a hospital, they are presented the opportunity to rate their experience and add comments. This feedback is related to every route in the platform and can be customized. Think how much staff time is taken up every day, delivering directions to visitors...this can be eliminated, delivering much needed additional hours to your clinical staff.
Our indoor wayfinding solution requires no hardware or access to wifi which results in no upfront costs or requirement for sign off from IT.
Our wayfinding works with any smartphone and has very minimal data requirements, which means it works effectively even in areas of low connectivity and has no need for WiFi or for the guest/patient to connect to the hospitals network.
All usage and feedback is anonymous, so you can implement and utilize without jeopardizing user data.
Works on any smartphone
Rather than exclude elderly or less technically savvy patients or helpers, our technology requires no special apps to download or expensive phones.
View most used start points, end points, routes and feedback in real time to maximize your way finding efficiency.
Assist guests no matter which language, with translations for almost every language possible to give everyone the best experience.
Finding the right department
For every patient appointment, finding the right department inside the hospital building on time is crucial. Being able to quickly identify the right one is where our meta tags come into play, perhaps doctors name, function or even a specific medical provider (they can even include their logo or identifier within the hospital directory.
Our quick link filters allow patients and visitors to quickly search for additional destinations such as ATM, nearest exit, restrooms or food drink locations.
Each of these features are driven to reduce patient and visitor stress or anxiety and allow them to focus on their treatments or loved ones.
All visits are tracked anonymously and can be viewed in your client dashboard, including most popular start points, destinations and routes. Realtime users can be seen at any time.
Your guests or patients have the ability to give feedback score on their route as well as an opportunity to leave a comment, potentially helping with HCAHPS scores or tenant satisfaction.
