The Nicon Hilton Hotel in Abuja, the capital of Nigeria, has installed the Novicom electronic sign system.
In the reception area and the lobby, visitors are met by large information screens with information about the day's meeting activities and wayfinding pictograms, which guide guests in the right direction. This is a much needed function, as the whole conference department is spread across several buildings.
Between the reception area and the meeting rooms, guests encounter smaller screens with directions confirming they are on the right path.
The Novicom system is designed so that the screens in the reception area provide an overview of the meeting rooms, while the smaller 15” screens at each meeting room show who has booked the room and for how long. The Novicom system automatically performs this function so the right information is displayed at the right place and time.
The Novicom system is web-based and can be controlled by a PC with internet or intranet access. As a result users can operate the program and control the screens both from their place of work or from home.
