What is Finder

    Space booking, room status, and wayfinding is easier than ever with Finder

    Last updated: October 17th, 2019

      Finder is a space booking and wayfinding tool that helps employees easily connect with their workplace community. It combines an intuitive touch interface with a seamless at-a-glance view of the workplace, making it easy to book rooms and desks ad hoc, search for coworkers, and navigate via maps.

      How Finder works

      Finder works by configuring a view (map or list view) of a particular campus, building, or floor. For example, Finder can display the location and availability of meeting rooms on a particular floor.

      Finder key features

      The key feature of Finder is the ability to quickly provide information to an employee or visitor when visiting a space. By interacting with Finder using an optional touch-enabled digital signage display, people can:

      • Search for employees and their desk location across different floors
      • See the availability of meeting rooms across different floors
      • See the available of desks or work locations
      • Book a meeting room right from Finder

      Finder helps people quickly get acquainted with a particular location and assist with optimizing their time in the office space.

      Finder offers two types of views that can be used with a digital signage display:

      1. Map View
      2. List View
