Client Profile

Navjivan Trust is a renowned publication house which was founded by the great Mahatma Gandhi in the year 1929. They have published 800 titles in multiple languages based on the Gandhism with a motive to keep the principles of Gandhi alive. Apart from publication, they also manage a museum to preserve and display Gandhi’s writings, photographs, paintings and voice-records.

Business Scenario

The Museum that Navjivan Trust runs is visited by around 7,00,000 visitors from across the world. The museum preserves and displays various content related to Gandhi’s life such as his Personal relics, letters (Originals and Photostats) and books related to his life and teachings. There are four sites in the museum called “Nandini”, “Vinoba Kutir”, “Upasana Mandir” and “Magan Niwas”. The Museum has various picture galleries like “My Life is My Message”, “Gandhi in Ahmedabad” and “Life-size oil painting”.

Client wanted to enhance the experience of visitors and encourage the Gandhian learning amongst the youth of this generation. But with such large premise and high number of footfall, doing justice to each and every visitor was a big challenge. Also, communicating the on-going activities like seminars, audio tours, educational events was a challenging task. With such scenario, they approached Cygnet to develop a technology that fulfilled their following requirements,

  • To educate the visitors with relevant information about every single artifact in the museum premise
  • To notify the visitors about the on-going activities across various premises
  • To guide visitors about the near-by events and exhibitions
  • Enable in-house navigation
