friendlyway Digital Signage Platform

NEXT.apps Overview

NEXT.apps — One of the key strengths of the NEXT Platform is its extensibility for individual business-cases and workflows. NEXT.apps is a growing collection of interactive workflows to be carried out at the point-of-service – for indoor navigation, visitor management, shopping assistance and more.


WayFinder app is a seamless extension of the NEXT.sense platform. It displays visual maps for interactive navigation and POI-search for users in buildings, shopping centers and tourist areas.

The WayFinder app brings the following capabilities out-of-the-box

  1. Create Interactive Maps
    Assign to your touch-enabled end-point devices visual, scalable maps both for indoor and outdoor navigation. An SWG-file can be used as the basis for the map layout.
  2. Define Points-of-Interest
    Define for your map any number of Points-of-interests and signs. You can create or update descriptions, categories, tags of your POIs at any time by uploading an Excel-file with predefined structure.
  3. Deliver your Maps to Devices
    Distribute your interactive map to your end-point devices at any time, just in the same way like you do with playlists and interactive content. You can also use schedule, sensors-based or programmatic triggers for displaying your maps on specific devices at specific moment.
  4. Your Users will always find a way!
    The users can browse a directory of POIs, or just use touch or input text search to find their targets, based on name or tags. They can also view additional information on each target, and the WayFinder will display visualized route and directions to it.


eReceptionist App is seamless extension of the NEXT Platform. It allows complete automation of the visitor check-in process at the eKiosk, and provides additional visitor management features within NEXT web application.

The eReceptionst comes with the following features out-of-the-box

  1. Send invitations from Outlook
    Your employees can generate invitations from Outlook to external visitors, extended by a numeric pin or QR Code. The visitor can use this code for his identification at the eReceptionist-Kiosk in the reception area.

  4. Notification, Calling to the Host
    After completing the check-in process, the Visitor can call or send a message to his host right from the eReceptionist Kiosk.
  5. Further Visitor Management Features
    The Visitor Management extension of the NEXT Platform includes additional features and reports that enable human receptionists to track the status and stats on checked-in visitors, check-outs, enable/disable visitor RFID-cards remotely and further options.
