What 3 Words
You may well have already crossed paths with what3words – if you have the app and are already using it for wayfinding or have read the headlines about how the emergency services are navigating in times of crisis, you’ll appreciate the game-changing mapping qualities of this incredible, but super-simple technology.
In short, what3words is an effortless way of communicating location via a unique three-word address that is assigned to a 3m square anywhere across the globe. People are using its wayfinding mastery to get to places of interest and meetups, tents at festivals and even guide mountain rescue teams during emergencies. By way of an example, gold.worked.slim will bring you straight to the front door here at Signbox – and that’s something a Google search and, for many destinations, a postcode can’t even do accurately.
But there is considerably more to what3words than sharing coordinates – and the good news for the business community is that it’s likely to improve your operational efficiency, enhance your customers’ experience and their journey to you to boot. Regardless of your industry, if your business utilises e-commerce, logistics, travel, meetings and wayfinding, what3words is likely to save you time with pinpoint precision, money and see your customer retention and reward rocket.
When it comes to implementing a wayfinding signage strategy, what3words looks set to revolutionise how your workforce, customers and visitors travel to you and navigate your business environment. For students on vast university campuses, visitors to sports stadia, large commercial sites and to businesses set in rural locations that don’t conform to traditional address systems, wayfinding signage just got seriously exciting.
Interior signage systems, external signage systems and bespoke wayfinding systems now have exponential value when it comes to directing your visitors. Signbox has devised a totally customised wayfinding solution composed of sustainable bamboo, satin-etched silicate glass and an NFC tag and which incorporates your own three-word address.
