Electronic Directories provide information about commercial buildings, shopping malls, hospitals, museums, campuses, and tourist attractions.
They feature directories of the tenants or services along with colorful graphics, videos, and web content. They can be configured to print maps, directions and coupons. Electronic directories can be used to help your "visitors" find related attractions in your area: hotels, restaurants, churches, theaters and other points of interest. In addition, they may be equipped with video clips, news, stock market reports, weather, and similar "channels" to entertain users in waiting rooms or lobbies.

The directories found in most buildings are hard to use and hard to maintain. Electronic directories simplify the job of organizing the list of tenants or services. You can easily create as many "indexes" as needed to help your visitors find what they're looking for. For example, an electronic directory in a shopping mall might have one of its indexes sorted alphabetically and another that groups all of the stores by category. And, since the data is stored in an electronic database, it is easy to add supplemental information (videos, narratives, etc.) and even provide a choice of languages to users.
