Abstract: Abstract The availability and the growing number of shopping centers in Ethiopia, particularly in Addis Ababa helped many customers get access to the goods and services they want. These shopping centers host quite many shops, offices, entertainment places and other facilities that would make most customers interested to visit them. However, the possibility of easily locating a particular facility in the shopping centers may be a challenging task. Currently, most shopping centers use signs, boards, and advertisement screens fixed in one place to provide information regarding the shopping center. However, these information provision mechanisms are not enough to allow users access relevant information while moving through the shopping center. Considering the fact that most mobile devices are Bluetooth enabled, a Bluetooth Enabled Information Provision System can be put as a solution to facilitate access to information within the shopping centers. Hence, in this project a Bluetooth enabled information provision system is developed to help users to access information regarding shopping center facilities using their mobile phone. Therefore, the system is organized in to three components namely: the desktop application, Bluetooth server, and administrator subsystems. The desktop application provides a mechanism to communicate with the database server and handles user’s data requests. The Bluetooth server is responsible for handling the Bluetooth communication between the mobile device and the server. Moreover, the administration subsystem is used to manage the registration, edition and deletion of the information regarding the shopping
