Info-Point delivers your information to your visitors' mobile devices

Info-Point connects to all smartphones and tablets PCs

What does it do?

Info-Point enables you to provide digital visitor information at any locality. Nearby users can browse your Info-Point using any smartphone, or any web-browsing device. The user connects to the Info-Point Wi-Fi 'hot spot' and navigates your information with their browser – just as if they were browsing the public web. As the owner, you upload your information direct to the Info-Point unit, this is also done via its Wi-Fi connection, using its easy content management interface with your laptop or tablet.

Info-Point uses similar power to an energy-saving light bulb. It gives your visitors a 24/7 web-browsing experience - without the web.

Who is using it?

Major historic and natural heritage organisations such as the National Trust, National Trust for Scotland, Cadw, RSPB, and Canal and River Trust as well as high-profile visitor attractions such as the Tower of London (Historic Royal Palaces). At the other end of the scale, small independent and volunteer-led museums and visitor centres, such as Coombe Mill, and Ryhope Steam Pumping Station. Professional interpreters are major players in developing innovative content for the info-Point platform and recommending it for appropriate projects - see our list of Partners. We are always more than happy to provide references and testimonials that are relevant to your project.

What is the visitor experience?

You use your signs and leaflets to alert visitors to the Info-Point facility. The visitor connects to a Wi-Fi hot-spot called 'Info-Point' (there is no password unless you choose to restrict access). It's the same as they would do at home or at an internet cafe.

Having connected to the Wi-Fi, the user opens their browser, which is directed to your home page. From there they can interact with whatever content you have uploaded. They are only able to access what is on the Info-Point unit that they are connected to. They can't browse the wider internet or open emails etc.

Once the user moves out of range, the Info-Point content will no longer be available to them, although any content you have made downloadable can be saved on their device for use later, such as leaflets, maps or outdoor trails.

How does it work?

An Info-Point is a completely self-contained unit. It generates a 'local web' - a kind of private internet that works the same way as the public internet, but is separate from it. It requires only electrical power, which can be provided by solar or battery. It does not need the Internet, or Wi-Fi, or mobile phone signal - nothing. This means that it is completely secure and self-sufficient and has no ongoing charges, for you or your users. A unit will serve visitors up to 150 metres away, and multiple units can be distributed to form an extended network or used as local information hot-spots.
The use of standard web technology means that, unlike native apps that are restricted to a specific type of phone, Info-Point is compatible across all web-browsing devices - now and in the future. It comes with an easy to use content authoring system, so you don't need web expertise. You simply upload your images, documents, videos etc. and type in what written information you want displayed as titles, descriptions, and navigation buttons. Info-Point will take care of the layout and formatting, and even re-size your images to fit. If you have web design and programming skills you can do lots more, including build your own style of web site and interactive web apps.
