There are three elements to digital signage; content, hardware and software. The content could be seen as the most important element as it is bright, engaging and attractive to viewers to get their attention. The content could be supported by audio to further grab attention and tell a story. The hardware element is the physical screen, mount or camera which allows the user to interact with the component and the software enables this through the internal infrastructure which manages the content that is shown through the hardware. At 2point0 Concepts, we are proud to provide these services and more to our clients to enable them to get the best out of their installations.
Digital Signage in Hospitality & Corporate Communications
The visitor experience is everything in the hotel industry. Hotels, restaurants, holiday resorts, and other establishments improve their reputation by providing an exceptional guest experience, and digital signage plays an important part in today’s tech-driven society. Presenting important information in a hotel establishment is best done by digital signage installations, as they can share a variety of information from check-in timings, welcome messages and emergency instructions in a fast and eye-catching way. As digital signage software improves, self check-ins are a great way to reduce waiting times in hospitality establishments as well as allow them to have more control over their bookings. This is clear as 55% of travellers communicated that they are more likely to book a hotel if it had self-check-in kiosks as opposed to the traditional check-in desks as they come across as more advanced, forward-thinking and luxurious.
Hospitality establishments, according to industry data, use digital signage to improve the guest experience in many key ways such as improving first impressions and adapting to accessibility and multilingual communication demands. As hotel guests form an opinion of an establishment in the first 10 minutes of arrival, digital signage delivers a great impression that can change guest perceptions in a positive way. The hotel industry has been transformed and elevated by digital self-check-in, pay and ordering kiosks, which speed up a variety of processes. Digital signage has aided hotel procedures and has adapted to the demands of different accessibility needs by providing different languages, easy access for disabilities and even security for check-out/check-in procedures. As hotel visitors come from all over the world, digital signage allows for multilingual communication on a new level as guests can do everything from check-in, check out, find local restaurants, call a taxi, browse event information, and more, in any language.
With corporate communications, companies want their employees to be productive and efficient during their working days. According to recent industry research, the use of internal communication platforms within the workplace increases employee productivity by 25% as digital screens provide information within the office to keep everyone informed and up to date. Providing a constant stream of internal communications within a workplace not only allows employees to be efficient but also allows them to give their opinions on tasks, workshops and events. Many Digital Signage installations allow users to click or press different selections on the screen, giving companies the options for adding polls, suggestion boxes and ‘happiness meters’ easily and interactively.
