Wayfinding is not a simple task in any new construction or remodelling job. The initial planning phase involves making the construction drawings and building permits, the legal documentation and all the required documents ready for any prospective clients who might want to know the subject matter involved. Once these preparatory stages are completed, you will have to think about the actual project and the costs that go with it. This article looks at how much it costs to use Kiosk display systems and how to plan it so that the initial outlay is as low as possible.
As part of the planning stage, it is worth thinking about the cost of Kiosk displays. You need to consider how many of them will be needed and how much they will cost. The number of displays you require will depend on how wide and long the roads, walkways, parks etc around your premises are. Even if your site has a single entrance, it is worth considering whether you can fit a Kiosk display somewhere there. It may be more economical to put the whole showroom on one level, as this makes it easier to view all the goods and services on one screen.
The next question then becomes how much Kiosk advertising is going to cost. Advertising is usually the most expensive part of a business promotion campaign and in many cases it is the first thing that catches the eye of visitors to a new site. While this is true, it is important not to forget the secondary costs involved with good quality signage. These include the posting of posters, pamphlets, brochures and postcards in various places, not forgetting the costs of the lighting and heating that will be necessary. If you make a great investment in good quality signs then they can last a long time, helping to reduce the costs of Kiosk wayfinding.
Planning can be limited by the space available for Kiosk route mapping. It is possible that you may only have room for a few signs, or none at all depending on the total area. Where the route goes, should also be carefully planned out, as too small an area will mean too few choices and too many routes. You might want to try a trial run on a small route to see how it works, before investing in a big project like this. This is not something that you want to rush into though, so if you are planning on adding a new Kiosk onto an existing one, then take your time and make sure that the current signage route is suitable.
Of course cost is one of the most important considerations when deciding on the cost of Kiosk route signage. There are a number of different methods for getting route information onto a Kiosk, and you should be aware of what is being offered before you go ahead. You could use full colour static graphics, 3D images, static logos and photographs, or a combination of any of these techniques. Think about how you want to present your offers and how different elements will work to maximize the impact that they have.
The cost of Kiosk wayfinding can also be affected by the location of where you intend to place your Kiosk. If you are looking to promote a company at a location where there is little foot traffic then the cost of Kiosk signs and banners will be lower. The same principle applies if you are looking to promote your business in an area where there are high street foot traffic but not a lot of foot traffic, as your Kiosk signage will need to be slightly more expensive.
