What to Consider When Selecting a Digital Signage Solution: 15 Questions to Guide Your Decision

When purchasing a digital signage solution, property and facilities managers must weigh several pros and cons to ensure they make an informed decision. Understanding these factors will significantly affect the utility and efficiency of the digital signage system, contributing to improved communication and engagement within the managed properties.

Below are fifteen questions you should ask yourself before selecting a digital signage solution.

1. What is the primary purpose of the digital sign?

Understanding the main objective of your signage, whether it’s for wayfinding, information dissemination, or enhancing visitor experience, helps in selecting the right features and functionalities. Clearly defining your goals ensures the system meets your needs and maximizes its effectiveness in your property.

For example, if your goal is wayfinding, look for features like interactive maps and real-time data updates. If your purpose is for displaying information—say, about a company’s ESG efforts—ensure the system supports various content formats and video capabilities.

2. Is having an easy-to-use content management system important?

A content management system (CMS) is a software application that allows users to create, manage, and modify digital content. A CMS provides a graphical user interface to design and schedule content, making it easier to keep the information displayed current and engaging.

If you don’t think you’ll have a dedicated signage technician on your team, you’ll want to choose a solution with a user-friendly CMS that allows for easy updates and scheduling, or find a vendor who will manage the content for you. A straightforward CMS enables property managers to keep the content relevant and engaging without needing extensive technical skills or significant time investment.

3. What types of content formats are supported?

Depending on your needs, be sure to check that the digital signage system supports various content formats like images, videos, and dynamic feeds. This versatility allows you to effectively display a wide range of information, keeping the audience engaged and informed with diverse and dynamic content.

4. How is the display quality?

High-resolution displays are essential for clear and impactful visuals. The quality of the display can affect how information is perceived and understood, so investing in high-quality screens ensures that messages are delivered effectively and attractively.

High-quality displays also communicate how well your building is maintained and whether you prioritize modern, professional standards.

5. Can the system be scaled easily?

Consider whether the digital signage solution can grow with your needs. Scalability is important for futureproofing your investment, allowing you to add more screens or upgrade functionalities without replacing the entire system.

6. What are the installation and maintenance requirements?

Evaluate the installation process and ongoing maintenance needs. A system that is easy to install and maintain reduces downtime and operational costs, ensuring a smooth and cost-effective implementation. Typical maintenance includes regular software updates, occasional hardware checks, and ensuring the displays remain clean and free from damage, which helps to prolong the lifespan and performance of your digital signage solution.

7. Does it offer remote management capabilities?

Remote management allows you to control and update the signage from anywhere, which is ideal for convenience and flexibility. This feature is particularly useful for property managers overseeing multiple locations or those who need to make real-time updates.

8. How reliable is the hardware and software?

Reliability cannot be overlooked if your goal is to avoid disruptions. Choose a system from a reputable provider known for durable hardware and reliable software. Just like buying a car, you get what you pay for. Don’t rely solely on price as the determining factor. Robust solutions minimize downtime and maintenance issues, ensuring consistent performance. Look for features such as remote diagnostics, automatic updates, and comprehensive warranties.

9. Are there analytics and reporting features?

Analytics and reporting features help track engagement and effectiveness. Access to data allows you to optimize content and measure the impact of your digital signage, providing valuable insights for continuous improvement.

Digital signage can serve more than just a communication tool; it can provide actionable data on viewer interactions, peak engagement times, and content performance. This can help you refine your messaging strategy and better meet the needs of your audience.

10. What kind of support and training is provided?

Support and training help property managers master their digital signage. Adequate support ensures any issues can be promptly addressed, while training helps your team effectively utilize the system’s features. Look for providers that offer onboarding sessions, detailed user manuals, and responsive customer service to help your team stay proficient and confident in managing the digital signage.

11. What is the total cost of ownership?

Consider all costs, including initial setup, ongoing maintenance, and potential upgrades. Understanding the total cost of ownership helps in budgeting and ensures the solution is cost-effective in the long term. Also, compare the cost over the lifetime of the system. For example, a screen that initially costs less but needs replacement in 3 years instead of lasting 8 years may appear more cost-effective initially but may not end up being so in the long run.

12. How secure is the digital signage system?

Security is vital to protect your content and system from unauthorized access. Without proper protection, your digital signage could be hacked, leading to unauthorized messages being displayed or sensitive information being compromised.

Ensure the solution has robust security measures to safeguard against potential threats and breaches. Look for features like encrypted data transmission, secure user authentication, and regular security updates.

13. Can the signage integrate with other systems?

Integration with other systems, such as emergency alerts or building management systems, enhances the functionality of your digital signage. Seamless integration can improve overall efficiency and responsiveness as well.

14. Is the signage customizable?

Customizability allows the signage to match your property’s branding and specific needs. A customizable solution ensures that the digital signage fits seamlessly into your environment and meets your unique requirements (including those of your tenants).

15. How environmentally friendly is the digital signage?

Consider the energy efficiency and environmental impact of the signage. Energy-efficient solutions can reduce operational costs and support your property’s sustainability goals. Look for displays that consume less power, have longer lifespans, and are made from eco-friendly materials. This not only helps lower your utility bills but also contributes to a greener environment and aligns with eco-conscious values and regulations.

Going Places – Prioritizing interactive digital signage in Schools, Colleges and Universities

It’s no surprise that today’s generation expects instantaneous access to information. Finding answers to questions was once time-consuming and involved research methodologies. Maybe you had to go to the library or bookstore—maybe you even had to handwrite a letter. Now, finding information takes little effort. With a few simple clicks, results appear on the screen.

Educational institutions have a tremendous amount of information to convey, and an audience with little time to spend reading it. Students, whether they’re in elementary school or doing graduate work at university, share a commonality. They are used to using their fingers to search for information using touchscreens, whether it’s their smartphone, laptops, or iPads.

It makes sense that the digital experience also extends into schools. With printing and paper costs becoming an increasingly analyzed budget line, streamlining communications is a valuable cost-savings tool. Using digital signage in schools is an eco-sustainable, effective solution to the many informational needs of those on campus.

Digital info hub enclosures

Offering much more than a simple directory, youRhere’s interactive information hubs are limitless knowledge banks. Whether helping newcomers navigate their way to faculties and classes, or sharing photos of former alumni, digital interactive hubs have a past, present and future in education systems.

Identifying the multi-layered needs of communication within educational institutions, youRhere has developed software features that provide flexible and affordable signage solutions for schools, colleges, and universities. Rotating messaging is displayed in an engaging format—everything happens in one space. Years of school photos can be digitized and celebrated in interactive displays, encouraging present-day students to engage with the school’s history, and digital signage is a clever way for schools to increase their brand awareness.

“If the school has been around for 50 years, you haven’t got room for that amount of class pictures,” explains Scot Martin, President and CEO of youRhere. “You can put up a touch screen that would allow someone interested in looking at a past class to find them quickly and easily on a single screen.”

Honouring alumni through multimedia photo displays is fantastic for sharing the wealth of graduation photos and historical information, without cluttering walls with aging photos. Awareness of benefactors and their historical influence on the school can also be raised in an engaging, visually appealing format.

“When alumni come back to visit, they are tremendously disappointed if they can’t find anything that helps them reminisce about the old days,” Martin says. “They’re delighted if they can pull up pictures of their team, their classmates, or their favourite teacher. All those things can be searched for and found quickly with interactive digital signage.”

Wayfinding technology allows students to easily locate classrooms, lecture halls, the nearest elevator, and the cafeteria. Students can access maps for the full campus, rather than just for the building they are in, allowing them to better understand the campus layout, including parking facilities. QR codes offer students the opportunity to scan the directions to their phone, ensuring they have consistent guidance even after they leave the digital signage space.

Those with visual impairments can access text to voice options with headphones. Standalone units are virtually height-adjustable, ensuring accessibility is no barrier for anyone in a wheelchair. There are few limitations with digital signage.

After class, live transit information displayed on the interactive hubs makes it easy for students to get home safely without waiting around outside for the next bus, which could be 20 minutes away. Updates on potentially hazardous weather conditions can be clearly displayed on interactive digital signage. In the event of an emergency, displaying critical instructions to students can assist with evacuation efforts. Conveying important health and safety reminders is a valuable use of digital screens in education settings. When you need to inform people quickly, digital signage complements your communication tools.

Over in the student union building, interactive hubs can promote textbook sales, fundraising activities, happy hour and lunch specials. For sports fans, excitement and hype are generated through displays of future game schedules or last night’s game highlights.

youRhere’s digital screens are updated remotely through a simple content management system (CMS). The system is so easy to use, updates can even be completed from a smartphone. youRhere will also provide editable templates, making your latest communication a breeze to convey.

While youRhere’s digital signage offers mega messaging possibilities, the cost is surprisingly small. Screens can be purchased outright or leased and paid for over a contracted period. To offset costs, advertising space can be sold to local businesses, or to advertise local events.

Interactive digital hubs provide a green, sustainable solution to educational communication requirements.

Enjoyable and efficient living: The difference digital signage brings to residential buildings

Digital Signage in Residential Buildings

Property managers are continually looking for new ways to connect with residents to deliver superior living experiences. With the evolving living landscape, rental communities must up the perks and amenities if they want to attract renters looking for long-term places to live, work and play. Investing in digital technology is an important strategy in achieving that goal.

With their seamless integration in a building’s design, digital signage solutions have become a popular choice for property management companies to offer a sense of luxury and convenience in residential spaces. When compared to traditional print signage, these interactive mediums better align with eco-friendly living standards as their energy-efficient nature aids in reducing a building’s environmental footprint.

Operating as sleek, high-resolution LED displays, they serve as dynamic hubs of information, gaining 400% more views than static displays, enabling efficient communication between building owners, managers, and residents.

The question now becomes, how should residential communities initiate the process of creating these captivating experiences using digital signage? It’s crucial to recognize that digital signage encompasses more than just the physical screen; it includes a variety of components that collectively provide exceptional experiences for tenants, such as:

  • Digital displays – For the purpose of creating captivating experiences, it’s essential to strategically position the sizable, high-definition displays in high-traffic zones within residential buildings, like the lobby and within elevators. This ensures optimal engagement with the audience during moments of waiting such as elevator rides, or leisure time in communal spaces.  
  • Content management systems – This system serves as a web-based tool for overseeing and scheduling messages to present on digital screens. Thanks to the adaptability and personalization offered by digital technology, property managers can log in and utilize the system to instantly include, modify, and distribute content that will appear on the residential building’s digital screens.
  • Emergency override system – An emergency override functions as an additional resource that facilitates the communication of alerts and the quick and effective guidance of residents to safety. It provides residents with a sense of security, giving building owners the ability to promptly inform them during emergency situations.
  • Resident portals – The integration of the content management system with a resident portal is essential for displaying vital building updates and resident-specific information. This includes unit-specific messages, package notifications, and other forms of communication that ensure residents are well-informed about the events and developments within their residential building.
  • Content – After successfully linking digital displays to your content management system and resident portal, the next step is to determine the content to be showcased. By accommodating local businesses with targeted advertisements and offering relevant building announcements for residents, digital signage transforms into a versatile communication medium, delivering information that is both pertinent and breaks from the confines of conventional mass media.

Improved residential living with Digital Signage

Digital signage in residential buildings is a valuable tool for enhancing the living experience. From communication to convenience and aesthetics, digital signage adds a layer of sophistication and functionality to modern living spaces. As technology continues to advance, digital signage will play an even more prominent role in shaping the residential buildings of the future, making everyday life more efficient, safe, and enjoyable for residents.

Seventy-three per cent of educational institutions deem digital signage to be crucial for the future of communication, cementing their place in the educational sector.  

Below, we explore the advantages utilizing effective wayfinding signage brings to college, university, or high school campuses and how it can create a more inviting and navigable environment for everyone. 

What is wayfinding? 

Wayfinding helps to guide people in a physical environment, increasing their understanding of the space while improving their experience. On school campuses, this helps to reduce the stress that often comes with navigating complex built environments, contributing to a sense of well-being, safety, and security. 

This form of navigational signage encourages a more confident self-orientation as students, staff, and guests manoeuvre the campus safely while familiarizing themselves with the environment.  

How wayfinding enhances the campus experience  

A comprehensive campus wayfinding system helps new and prospective students easily locate campus destinations, creating a less stressful and more enjoyable initial experience. It can be employed to: 

  • Promote inclusivity with directional signs and advantageously placed exterior signs guiding individuals with mobility challenges or visual impairments more efficiently throughout the campus. 
  • Foster a greater sense of safety and security on school sites with illuminating wayfinding signage to help guests locate safe pathways, parking lots, and buildings at all hours or during emergencies. 

Implementing an effective wayfinding strategy 

Establishing an effective management strategy with wayfinding requires careful planning and consideration of the various elements involved. Collaborating with facility managers, students, faculty, and staff helps to identify areas of needed improvement and discover potential solutions.  

For wayfinding signage to maintain its effectiveness and efficiency, it’s important to ensure these systems can easily adapt to changes on campus i.e., construction projects, new buildings, and campus expansions. Incorporating these practices creates a more enjoyable experience for the campus community while also improving safety and security. 

Creating a sense of community with wayfinding 

Wayfinding signage can create an engaging, welcoming environment that supports a sense of belonging and community on campus.

In response to the growing popularity of the online shopping experience, shopping malls have had to adapt to stay relevant. Among many public places, retail malls and centres are evolving to become an immersive experience as the market continues to show strength and signs of a rebound in foot traffic

Given the expansive and constantly changing landscape of shopping centres, the visitor experience is of utmost importance. Wayfinding signage has emerged as a key innovation transforming the operations of malls with a focus on improving the user experience for shoppers.

These interactive displays not only serve as a modern replacement for traditional mall directories but also offer numerous benefits that enhance the overall shopping experience.

A breakdown of retail wayfinding

Wayfinding signage refers to a set of signs and visual aids designed to assist individuals in navigating a physical environment, whether it be a building, campus, or urban area. In this case, retail wayfinding refers to the utilization of technology-based solutions aimed at providing guidance to both employees and customers within expansive environments such as shopping malls. With the usage of digital maps, interactive signage, and navigation systems, guests are provided with accurate directions to reduce confusion and enhance overall navigation efficiency.

Benefits of wayfinding signage

  • Improved customer experience

One of the primary benefits of wayfinding digital signage is its ability to enhance the overall customer experience within shopping malls. Customers can easily locate stores, services, restrooms, and other amenities with intuitive touchscreen interfaces. This convenience reduces frustration and stress associated with getting lost in a large mall, ultimately making shopping more enjoyable.

  • Real-time updates

Traditional paper directories are quickly becoming outdated, leaving customers searching for stores that have moved or closed. Wayfinding digital signage offers real-time updates, allowing mall management to easily modify information and maps, ensuring customers always have access to accurate and up-to-date information.

  • Increased customer engagement

Digital wayfinding signs offer more than just basic navigation. They can include interactive features like promotional videos, advertisements, and special offers. This increased engagement can captivate shoppers’ attention and encourage them to explore new stores or take advantage of exclusive deals, thereby boosting sales for tenants and increasing foot traffic within the mall.

  • Enhanced accessibility

Shopping malls should be accessible to everyone, including individuals with disabilities. Wayfinding digital signage can incorporate accessibility features, such as voice commands and adjustable font sizes, to ensure that all customers can navigate the mall independently.

Digital wayfinding signs can collect valuable data on customer behaviour and preferences. Mall management can analyze this data to gain insights into traffic patterns, popular shopping times, and customer preferences. These insights can inform decisions related to tenant placement, marketing strategies, and overall mall operations.

Evolving with the times

In an increasingly digital world, shopping malls must embrace technology to remain competitive and provide a superior shopping experience. Effective wayfinding signage is an important aspect of creating an efficient and enjoyable environment for customers and employees.
