Edinburgh-based Partner, Abound Design, faced a challenge to produce a variety of interpretive materials including an audio tour app within a modest budget. The client was Jordans Quaker Meeting House in Buckinghamshire, which Abound Director Russel Eggleton describes as 'the Quaker Westminster Abbey' due to its association with famous names from the movement, such as Penn.
They saw Info-Point as the answer to this latter requirement, due to its low cost, universal accessibility, and the fact that they could easily add more tours at a later date and the client could author additional content themselves.
Due to the size and layout of the building they opted for a 'Master' unit on the ground floor plus an Access Point or 'slave' in a window on the upper floor to extend the coverage throughout the building and outside.
Russell developed a bespoke navigation structure with support from the Info-Point Technical Director Paul Palmer and produced user-friendly signage and guidance for visitors, so that even the less techno-savvy are encouraged to use the multi-media guide from the start.
