ViaDirect equips the Covéa offices

Can you install 100% digital and interactive signage in offices? It’s the choice of Covéa, the number one French mutual insurance group, for its Parisian head office.

The multitouch kiosks installation is a revolution in workspaces because it informs and guides co-workers and visitors. It is a strong trend among property and facility managers.

With 100 places equipped and a skillful R&D, ViaDirect worked closely with Covea to offer an innovative solution that meets the multiple needs of modern office buildings.   

  • Safety through wayfinding to relevant services and equipment
  • The integration with information systems (meeting rooms, restaurant information, concierge service, transportation, …)
  • Multichannel offering the same services with centralized management on kiosks, web, and smartphone
  • Internal communication through image/text/video playback
  • Contextual signage such as displaying information for visitors, floor service, and events, …

In April 2015, the 7 renovated “Tivoli” buildings will welcome 800 people in 20 000m². The 39 “Lémurien” kiosks installed are divided between 48’’ and 22’’ screens that are found at all levels and in key service areas.
