Discover Siemens Now: New App for Products
Partners of Siemens can now use a virtual, interactive map to learn about the company’s products and solutions.
The program, called Siemens Explorer, is available for Web browsers, as an iPad app, and as an application for PCs or laptops. It introduces important technologies that help improve our infrastructure, and therefore also our daily lives — including wind power plants, smart grids, water treatment systems, or solutions for healthcare. The Siemens Explorer is intended for customers, investors, journalists, employees and job applicants, schoolchildren, university students, and the general public.
The home page of the Siemens Explorer shows a bird’s-eye view of a map with the topics energy, mobility, industrial production, water, healthcare, buildings and lighting, and financing. There are about 430 subject fields and 47 films that provide further information to users, who can click through more than 25 of the latest Siemens projects around the world and get an overview of each topic and detailed information. There are explanations of things like smart grids and electric cars, and films that deal with subjects including a wind power project in New Zealand and the world’s most efficient gas turbine in Irsching in Bavaria.
What’s more, the Siemens Explorer offers guided tours for special topics. There is currently a tour of “Sustainable City Solutions” that shows selected information and films about sustainability. Users can also put these guided tours together themselves and show them in the framework of presentations for customers or city councils, for example. The Siemens Explorer is also suitable for press events, road shows, job fairs, or employee training.
The iPad app has already been downloaded more than 2,500 times under its previous name, Virtual Siemens City. It is one of the winners of the Annual Multimedia Award 2012, which has been honoring the best design in German multimedia productions for more than 15 years. The renamed app, Siemens Explorer, will be kept up-to-date at all times. It is currently available in English and German. Special versions are being prepared for China, Brazil, and the U.S.
