Good signage improves passenger flow - that was the result of a study after installing our signage portals at the immigration queues of a British airport. There, we solved the wayfinding to the right queues depending on nationalities without creating congestion in front of the queues.

In addition, good signage also improves the quality of service for passengers and the duration of services when there is an explanation of the upcoming service process.

Depending on your specific situation, we offer different signage solutions, such as the Telescopic Signpost, Signage Portals and the Sign Frames.

Copenhagen Airport operates a fully automated queue at its security checkpoints, where sensors constantly measure the passenger flow. The sophisticated algorithm by our partner Qmetrix triggers our Smart Gates to balance passengers between sections of the queue or to reduce walkways when possible. At the exits, screens indicate the next available check point to the passengers.

This integrated Via Guide solution improves the service quality and dispenses the need for intervention by staff.

The return to usual passenger traffic will be a major challenge for airports.
Our NeXtrac partition wall system can flexibly and with minimal effort be used as a room system or as a separation of waiting or service areas. This allows physical distance as well as security and protection, while maintaining a view of the queue. The partition walls can be used in combination with our Beltrac belt posts, offering a complete solution.

The belt material of the Beltrac belt posts and our Wall Mounts can individually be printed with a logo, short information texts or even multi-coloured photo printing.

The continuous digitalisation does not stop with us, so that we have decided in our customers’ and partners’ interest to re-launch of our digital presentation. If you did not know us by now, we would like to briefly introduce our core competencies: we are the one-stop shop customer flow systems and have the highest possible range of solutions for every situation. Our solutions are not made for companies, but for people and are designed to create a better customer experience and to improve efficiency.

The growing number of electric vehicles present new challenges to car workshops and garages. When a defective electric car is brought into the workshop it must be temporarily blocked up until it’s confirmed that it is not energised. German car manufacturers rely on the Beltrac belt post which is provided to every authorised car workshop.

As a part of the bachelor thesis of Qais Yamani, student of the Hochschule Osnabrück and born in Jordan, Qais evaluates the storage optimisation and the optimisation of production flows at Via Guide GmbH. Experience shows that the close and trustful cooperation between #science and economy reveals enormous potentials and promotes the recruitment of talents from different backgrounds at the same time. 

Our virtual queuing solution for Lufthansa has been adapted to Lufthansa’s new corporate design. At the service centers in in Frankfurt and Munich, passengers register directly by scanning their boarding passes and receive their personal waiting number. A notification on the screen indicates, when it is their turn to show up at the counter. So they can wait without standing in line. Staff can order the queue in terms of available flights or booking class, so that the rebooking can be managed very efficient. Thank you to Sebastian Kaiser for the successful support of the project!

HelloBER – We congratulate BER - Berlin Brandenburg Airport very much to the opening of the new airport. We are very proud that our long year partnership which started in TXL and SXF continues in BER.
