SENEGAL. ViaDirect equips Sonatel HQ in Dakar

Paris – Dakar, June 3, 2019

 

It’s in Dakar, capital of the Republic of Senegal that, in partnership with local representative iPub Events, ViaDirect has set up its wayfinding solution for the first time in West Africa. 

Telecommunications provider affiliated to French company Orange since 1997 and leader in West Africa (30 Million customers / 1022 billion Francs CFA turnover in 2018 * ), the Sonatel Group started its activities in Senegal in 1985. Since then, Sonatel branched into Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, The Gambia, Mali and Sierra Leone.

The Sonatel building where ViaDirect implemented its wayfinding solution hosts nearly 800 collaborators from the 4500 based on the African continent.

Operational since Mai 2019 at the reception area of Sonatel head-office in Dakar, the ViaDirect/iPub Events wayfinding kiosk guides regular collaborators as well as occasional visitors towards individual desks and collective services. 

The 43’’ touch screen which displays the ViaDirect interactive wayfinding software is encased in a ViaDirect Marina type furniture. It has been produced locally by our partner iPub Events who also masterfully took care of the installation on-site and will provide the Sonatel kiosk maintenance. 

 

* 1,5 billion euros
