Project Description

Internat King William´s College

The customer – King William I College

King William I College is part of the progressive Regional Educational Center for secondary vocational education operating in the middle of the Netherlands. With 6 locations including 2 big campus sites in the ‘s Hertogenbosch region, King William I College offers about 200 different educational programs to nearly 13,000 students. To serve that huge amount of students a total of about 1,500 people work at this leading educational institution.

Growth and expansion required dynamic wayfinding

Over the years the number of students and staff, courses and classrooms has increased enormously. It became a huge and time consuming challenge for King William I College to direct those thousands of students, personnel and visitors at the right moment to the right location with traditional static signs.

Nevertheless, making sure students and staff would get to the correct classrooms on time, without getting lost on the campus sites was of utmost importance. So they were looking to replace their outdated wayfinding signage with a contemporary solution that would guide everybody on the premises as fast and effective possible to their destination.

Total display communication for education

After profound research the college institution found out that digital signage would offer the solution they were looking for. They selected BIS, Dutch digital signage specialist, to deploy this great assignment. The software that drives this entire system is PADS digital signage software, developed by Net Display Systems.

With PADS, the department of Communication can easily manage the content on the displays for the multiple locations, college rooms and lecture halls. The corresponding dynamic wayfinding details, such as direction signs and symbols are also managed by the same solution.

The digital screens not only provide navigation information. They show all sorts of other useful information, beneficial to students and staff. BIS has created a multifunctional and dynamic digital information system, that also includes college announcements, local weather updates, traffic info and public transportation passenger information.

Guide and update thousands of students with PADS

With PADS4 digital signage software King William I College has a smart dynamic wayfinding solution that has more than exceeded their expectations. It’s fully automated, user-friendly and the people responsible for managing the system have remote access to all displays campus wide.
