Our Origins

Smart Signs Solutions is a spin-off of the Smart Surroundings research project conducted at the University of Twente. The organisation was founded in 2008 by Dr Maria Lijding with the aim of further marketing the concept of personal dynamic signage in larger buildings. From our offices at the Business & Sciencepark in Enschede, we work continuously on the further development of intelligent systems. We help you make smart and efficient buildings become a reality.


Smart Signs Solutions is a member of an international network of organisations that promote the practical application of technical innovations in Europe. In addition, we regularly cooperate with governments, leading companies and research institutes, as well as with user organisations.

Research in collaboration with

Intelligent information concepts

Smart Signs Solutions believes that people can experience hospitality and professionalism without this placing additional pressure on your staff. This can be achieved using ‘smart’ technologies. Our vision: to provide businesses and their staff with relevant, up-to-date information whenever and wherever they need it. All our concepts have been developed in co-creation with customers at all levels; from managers and ICT workers to flex workers, nurses and visitors. As a result, besides being smart, the concepts are also highly user friendly.

Insight and overview

Each concept provides a complete and innovative information system, consisting of various ‘smart’ components that cooperate perfectly. You and your staff will therefore have access to relevant up-to-date information whenever and wherever you need it. Visitors will be able to easily find their way to their appointment. Flex workers will be able to see where a suitable workplace is available as soon as they enter the building. The dashboard and our reports will provide your facility manager with insight into both historical and current occupancy rates of the various rooms. In short, Smart Signs Solutions creates insight and overview, opening the door to the further professionalisation of your organisation.

Smart Signs Solutions believes that people can experience hospitality and professionalism without this placing additional pressure on your staff. That is why we have developed an innovative, user-friendly concept: Smart Hospitality. This concept has been carefully tailored to meet the needs of organisations in large office buildings such as conference centres and healthcare institutions.

Also for temporary use

Monitoring is sometimes only required temporarily. For example, if you are attempting to save operating costs, temporary workplace monitoring can provide insight into actual occupancy rates of the available work space. Or, if operating at a temporary location, you want to register, inform and direct visitors. All our Smart concepts can be deployed temporarily.
