ONELAN provides digital signage across the world. They enlisted the services of Humboldt to help deliver Reserva: an interactive meeting-room signage system. Providing a smooth user experience was essential, but the bigger challenge was to create a system that fully integrated with numerous third-party applications.
“Humboldt work with the third-party developers to fully understand the capabilities.”
Working from a proof-of-concept design, Humboldt played an important role to help develop an interactive booking system that fully integrates with Microsoft Exchange, Google Calendars and a bespoke calendaring system used by the education sector. Humboldt also played a crucial role in realising an android signage player suitable for android tablets. Additional functionality includes:
-Automatic update of cancellations
-Meeting extension or shortening
The Reserva project is ongoing, as Humboldt and ONELAN continue to work together to improve the system. The latest upgrade saw the introduction of a device on each sign that allows users to access the system with a smart card. By simply scanning their employee ID card, they can book, cancel or rearrange meetings outside the meeting room itself.
“Humboldt made our job very easy in terms of explaining our thoughts. It doesn’t have to be a detailed brief… they’ll just get on with it and understand exactly what we want.”
