Our app. Your content.
The development and testing are already done. Wifarer is now available in the app stores. It’s ready for your museum - all you need to do is add your content.
Our app. Your brand.
Wifarer is branded for your museum. We incorporate your name and logo into our app’s skin, so your visitors view it as your app.
One app is all you need.
Wifarer is the only smartphone app that delivers positioning, navigation, location based content and venue analytics.
It is expected that over 1.8 billion smartphones will be sold worldwide in the next 5 years. By 2015, annual unit shipments of smartphones will be 850 million. The smartphone is the only interactive device people never leave home without.
Why not give your visitors a smartphone app to enhance their museum visit ?
Got WiFI? Get Wifarer.
All you need to get Wifarer for your museum is WiFi and a floor plan.
No hardware required.
Since Wifarer is a software only solution, you don’t need to purchase any expensive hardware. No screens, no servers, nothing.
Wifarer is the default app for indoor navigation in large, complex venues around the world. Wifarer automatically senses a user’s location and displays the map and content for the venue they are currently in, be it your museum, a gallery in London, an airport in Boston or a shopping center in Japan.
Make money ( if you want.)
Sell in-app advertising. Or not. You decide if you want Wifarer to generate a revenue stream.
Attract a younger demographic
Young people are never without their smartphones. Why not use a technology they love to help them connect to great art on their own terms?
Interactive maps. Useful content.
We work with you to create a unique interactive map for your museum, with location specific multimedia content for each gallery, exhibition, or object. You can also include information about events, exhibitions, and schedules.
With Wifarer, visitors never get lost. Wifarer’s proprietary technology works like a GPS by pinpointing a user’s location on the smartphone screen map; as visitors move, Wifarer updates their location automatically in real time.
Search. Find. Go.
Finding what you are looking for in a museum can be difficult. Visitors ask guards and consult maps and information booths. Wifarer helps visitors find what they are looking for, be it a specific object, a gallery, the washroom, or an espresso. Visitors search by location or category, and once they find their destination, tap the “ take me there" button to see a path on the map from where they are currently standing to where they want to go.
Speaks your language.
Make sure your international visitors get the same great experience as locals. Wifarer automatically takes the language of the visitor’s phone, offering maps and content in over 100 languages.
It’s a sad fact that visitors can access more information about museum objects in their own homes over the internet than they can in the galleries. Wifarer changes all that by turning the visitor’s smartphone into a navigable portal into the museum's knowledge base.
Wifarer senses where the visitor is and gives them the information and perspective they need to gain a deeper understanding of objects and artists, artistic traditions and cultural context.
Examples of enriched content includes artist interviews, texts and images, audio and video clips, video footage of artists at work, interactive games, music, visitor responses, documentary photographs, critical commentary and a wide range of other archival material.
Because Wifarer knows where visitors are located, it automatically serves content related to objects they are standing in front of. No more awkward keying in of numbers to get information.
Save money. Go green.
Save on paper, printing, and recycling costs by putting maps, guidebooks, and other information on Wifarer’s smartphone app. Isn’t it nice when being environmentally friendly saves you money?
Where the #!&&$%!! is the digital display?
With Wifarer on their smartphones, visitors don’t have to find a digital display or an information booth to find a gallery, an object, an espresso, or the washroom.
