In the contemporary information-saturated world, there is a need for an easier, faster, and more social way to keep office workers updated and better aware of surrounding activities. Today's information management systems tend to consume time rather than simplify information sharing. The Vista system tries to solve this problem. It is designed to be used in places of social interaction where it displays information about professional activities happening in the department. In this paper, the origins of the project, the user-centered design process and iterative evaluation of the concept are described. The paper concludes with observations regarding the social acceptance of Vista and reflections on future research aspects. Vista is the result of a design project conducted in cooperation between the User-System Interaction postgraduate program at Eindhoven University of Technology, and the Research Group of Océ Technologies in the Netherlands.
