Streamlined design helps streamline office life
Simple and intuitive
The traditional office is a cornerstone of modern business. But that doesn’t mean it is without flaws. Everyday tasks such as booking rooms, finding rooms, and locating colleagues can be time-consuming, and sap energy that could otherwise be spent on more productive activities. The Nimway solution aims to solve these problems. A recent article in InMagazine, looks at the design of the Nimway app – one of several features of the Sony solution that make your day in the office easier to navigate.
Intuitiveness was a top priority for the Nimway design team. They wanted to create a solution that made sense from the start, without requiring training. And they wanted the app to be easily integrated into the users’ existing way of working. Following these principles, the Nimway app is indeed easy to understand. It combines a clean, economical design with limited colour palette and no unnecessary embellishments.
If step one was creating an app that users could easily understand, step two was to make Nimway fun. Unexpected design details are devised to appeal to the users’ playful side, such as ‘Nimbubbles’ which pop up automatically on the floor plans to guide users to their next meeting. Nimway Account Manager, Sakis Theodoridis explains, “Features like this are hard for people to imagine, but when we demonstrate the app in real life their eyes light up. It’s even cooler than they expect!”
