Meaning, enterprise digital signage is one of the most dynamic, customizable forms of marketing, and it is almost a guarantee that the message will be seen by the intended audience. Whether the message is focused on a limited-time offer or focused on showcasing product features and benefits or providing accompanying product information, your audience will at least “see” it, but how a business measures incremental sales can vary from business to business. Benefit No. 2: Digital Signage Reduces Operating Costs In a day where shoppers expect information virtually on-demand, many retail and service outlets are learning that static, printed signage simply doesn’t cut it anymore. Additionally, static printed signage can be quite costly to print, costly to hang, and for large organizations, it can be hard to guarantee that the printed sign was displayed correctly, let alone displayed at all. Add to this the potential danger and time it takes for store employees to climb up a ladder and change out printed placards, printed advertising continues to approach the sunset. Conversely, when a digital sign is deployed, it is only deployed once. From there, an individual sitting in a central office or company HQ can work with store operations and marketing teams to deploy, quickly and easily, near real-time messages across any number of digital signs. (That's the beauty of enterprise digital signage. Far reach. Single point of control.) Additionally, with a strong content management system in place, that same individual can access viewership reports and see what is playing currently or in the past without ever going to the store. Should a screen experience an issue, a store can work with that same individual to repair the issue quickly with a full view of digital signage player, program, schedule, and network status. Should the error be network-related, digital signage can continue to display content by accessing the content locally versus streaming it. Finally, with digital signage infrastructure continually simplifying, companies can run a world-class signage network using nothing more than a SmartTV and an Internet connection, thus reducing costs and complexity for businesses. And we're just getting started with benefits. Check back tomorrow for three more real world benefits of digital signage solutions.
