Top 5 tips for once you’ve recieved your digital signage
1) Don’t mount your screens too high – Make sure you think carefully about the angle and location of your screen before you mount it. The text may be pointless if it isn’t visible. Of course, if you choose interactive signage, you will need to take into account the height of customers so that they can take full advantage. One of our engineers will be sure to help you mount your screen to its optimum position.
2) Don’t clutter your design – We know it can be exciting when you see how much a lot of digital signage can achieve, from images and videos, to audio and RSS feeds, but don’t let this tempt you to use it all. If you clutter the design, your message will not get across and remember being informative is the key application of digital signage. If you are struggling to design your content, we can offer training or design it for you.
3) Try and keep your content recent – Many companies create their digital signage and then leave it replaying for months on end. By then, the messages will either be irrelevant to the audience, or will be ignored due to its repetition. Try and schedule content so that it switches between a couple of designs throughout the day and make sure events or dates on the calendar are updated. Again, scheduling is something we can train you on in house.
4) Keep your software up to date – Keep your content management fresh so that you can avoid lagging or other problems with the content visuals. A lot of software has automatic updates but our engineers will be able to answer any queries about this prior to installation.
5) Think before using audio – we all know how annoying it can be hearing the same message over and over again, so make sure your content isn’t on too much of a loop. Obviously, audio can be very successful in areas such as cafeterias or reception areas but avoid installing near workers trying to concentrate.
You may think these are pretty obvious pointers but you would be surprised how many people misunderstand digital signage as a tool. As mentioned here, we can offer in house training to an individual or group who will be using the software and creating content. We suggest having more than one person trained so that cover can be put into place and content can remain fresh.
