People with a disability constitute a significant group of consumers. However, shopping centres may miss out on engaging these customers and providing an enjoyable shopping experience because of a lack of accessible indoor wayfinding and signage.
One of the biggest concerns when thinking about upgrading your building with digital maps or an accessible navigation system is, ‘How much time and involvement do I need from my team to get this up and running?
In this post we’re going to bust the myth that innovative technology – like digital mapping and navigation – must mean complicated, expensive and time consuming installations, and explain why a BindiMaps installation is done in less than 24 hours even for a large and complex space like a hospital or university.
We’re excited to be partnering with Sydney Disability Expo’2022, to provide digital navigation services during the program.
Disability expo is Australia’s largest program that brings the disabled community together in a face-to-face environment, and we’re beyond thrilled to have the expo Bindimapped. – This means 100% accessibility!
We are incredibly proud that BindiMaps and our co-founders have been recognised on The Australian Top 100 Innovators List!
The list celebrates and highlights future-focused leaders and companies that put Australia on the map as an innovative nation and we’re beyond thrilled to be one of them!

Shopping centres are increasingly becoming larger and more complex.

When I look at different wayfinding and navigation systems for people with vision impairment, one thing that stands out to me is the number of systems that require their users to “look around” and find a thing that holds the directions. That is, in order to use the system, the first thing you need to […]
One thing that makes BindiMaps so powerful for our users with vision impairment is the years we have spent developing our Navigation Language Framework (NLF)- the rules and systems we use for issuing spoken directions to users.
Creating truly accessible hospitals needs to go beyond adding tactiles and braille signage. Digital wayfinding is inclusive, empowering and inexpensive.

JR manages all the BindiMaps supported locations in Australia, including setting them up and maintaining them.
This means he is often out at shopping centres, office buildings or hospitals getting the spaces ready for the BindiMaps navigation system to do its thing.
