The information columns can be laminated with customized films to the customer's specification. dimedis also supports its customers with editorial-administration and content-creation services.
Bosch Experience Zone
The Bosch Experience Zone is an innovative shop-in-shop project for DIY superstores. Its main objective is to create a brand island in which the customers receive information and inspiration and are able to try out products in a practice-oriented environment. The Bosch Experience Zone adopts a holistic approach and integrates interactive digital signage into modern shopfitting. As an eye-catcher in the Experience Zone, the terminal boosts customer loyalty and encourages customers to make purchases and interact using a touchscreen. Besides providing value-added in the form of information, the terminal also moves the Bosch products to the forefront of the customers' interest. With 23 languages available, the user interface can be used flexibly around the world, the information gathered can be printed out and taken away, and information can be transmitted to a smartphone using the QR code. Besides having a sophisticated search function, it can also be used to create favorites lists and to scan products directly at the information terminal.

Wayfinding on the dimedis booth
As yet another highlight, dimedis will be presenting kompas wayfinding on an interactive column like those used at the Abu Dhabi Mall or the NeuerMarkt shopping mall in Germany. On the dimedis booth, visitors to viscom will be able to try out the wayfinding solution for trade fairs and shopping malls for themselves.
kompas wayfinding is an intuitive and intelligent wayfinding system. The interaction with kompas wayfinding takes place via a touchscreen. kompas wayfinding documents all the users' actions and search requests anonymously and thus serves as a permanent survey tool. The heart of this system is the intuitive LogoCloud:
