What Makes Digital Signage Better than Traditional Signage?

One of the technology solutions that Experience Audio Video offers is digital signage. This high-tech approach to signage has been gaining quite a lot of ground in the last few years. But is it really worth the investment?

You may be skeptical of digital signage. After all, people say it can get expensive, and technology failures can be embarrassing. What makes it worth investing in? What makes digital signage better than traditional signage?

In a word, it’s more dynamic. Allow us to elaborate.

Dynamic Engagement: Digital Signage Is Brighter

Digital signage is far brighter than traditional signage. Brightness grabs attention, and isn’t attention the point of your signage in the first place?

When you want to grab people’s attention, bright, light-emitting digital signage is a great choice.

Dynamic Messaging: Digital Signage Is Easy to Change

Second, digital signage can be easily customized and changed in the moment. In this way it’s exceptionally dynamic.

If your signage needs change, even briefly, you can easily reconfigure digital signage to display the message of the hour. With traditional signage, changing your message takes some serious work. You have to order new signs from a vendor and wait weeks for them to arrive. Or you end up scrawling something on printer paper and taping it to the sign— not exactly elegant or professional.

Dynamic Animation: Digital Signage Moves

Lastly, digital signage is an improvement over traditional signage in that your signage can come to life. Take advantage of the fact that digital signage is video-capable. Create animated flourishes for your signs if you have the capability. Or at least experiment with basic animations and transitions in your favorite presenter software.

Lobby Looking Tired? Refresh It with Digital Signage

The lobby of your healthcare facility is vitally important. It’s the first thing people see when they arrive. It tells patients a great deal about you, and it sets the tone for what they should expect throughout their visit.

Far too often, though, healthcare facilities underinvest in their lobbies. Perhaps the thinking is this: lobbies don’t generally make money by themselves, and they don’t provide a ton of functionality for your staff.

Given how crucial your lobby is to the patient experience, though, you can’t afford to let it go. You need to keep it looking fresh.

If your lobby is looking tired, one extremely easy way to refresh your look is with digital signage. The team at Experience Audio Video has helped numerous clients do just this already, and we can help you, too. Here’s what you need to know.

Digital Signage Injects a Modern Feel Without Blowing the Budget

First, quality digital signage injects a modern feel wherever it gets installed. And it doesn’t have to be an overwhelmingly expensive upgrade.

Remodeling your entire lobby with a sleek, modern aesthetic may be well outside your budget right now. But have you seen the price of TVs these days? Large 4K displays are shockingly cheap compared to just a couple years ago. Adding digital signage can be a very cost effective way to modernize the look and feel of your lobby.

Digital Signage Allows for Customized Messaging

Second, digital signage allows you to easily customize the messaging in your lobby. Your logo and brand messaging get top billing, of course, but consider the possibilities. VIP clients coming for a visit? Give them a customized welcome (even incorporating their logo) using your digital signage. New branding initiative or ad campaign? Display elements from your campaign on a rotating basis using your digital displays.

The possibilities for engaging, dynamic display content are nearly endless when you deploy digital signage in your lobby. Contact us today for a customized quote for your space.

 


How Will Digital Signage Improve Your Healthcare Office?

There’s no one answer to improving the productivity and accessibility of your Healthcare office, given no two employees or patients are the same. 

But by using digital signage in the office, you’re taking a big step forward to making efficiency and comfort a core value of the workplace.

At its simplest, digital signage allows you to take content and send it out to your displays. You’re able to manage what content gets seen, and even control variables like when it gets seen.

Allowing for this level of instant customization means presenting information to anyone who enters your office in a way that makes sense to them. And when people feel like they’re being understood, they’re far more likely to enjoy the experience they have at your office.

So what can digital signage do for your healthcare office?

Put Visitors At Ease

When seated in your waiting room, patients probably don’t want to read a month-old People magazine, but they do want to see the information that is relevant to them. From streaming top news headlines to giving them factual data on your office and its success, digital signage allows you to help reduce the stress of waiting to be seen.

Reduce Burdens On Employees

Your employees should be able to focus on clients, not worry about giving directions or explaining basic facts. When you have digital signage installed, visitors can learn this information on their own, which frees up your staff to provide meaningful connections.

Cut Down Wait Times

Digital signage can also be hugely helpful in reducing wait times on the back end of your business. As soon as someone checks in, their name can be displayed to employees who can act faster on gathering necessary materials or data. A more personal experience can be delivered as there is no need for in-betweens to relay information via phone or in person.

What Content Should Your Healthcare Digital Signage Display?

Healthcare spaces can significantly benefit from using digital displays, as these help direct patients to the right places, and can be a welcome distraction when sitting in your waiting room.

But what you display on these digital screens matters, which is why it’s crucial to have a balance of content, from directional help for visitors to updates that your employees need to know.

These are some easy-to-implement content ideas to use for your healthcare space’s digital displays.

Information About Your Business

For displays that your visitors see, necessary information about your business can be helpful with navigating your space. But you can also show different content to your employees, like your most recent patient retention rate.

Social Media Updates

When you feed social media updates and mentions to your digital displays, you’re sure to be sharing content relevant to what you do. Not to mention, you won’t have to come up with any new content as your feed will continuously be updated when you post.

But having social media updates as part of your digital display also has other benefits:

  • Your team members will have a direct way of seeing any feedback and patient responses; and
  • Your patients will see what people are saying about you in real time.

News

Having relevant breaking information shared with patients and employees helps keep people up to date on what is happening in the world, and can reduce the perception of waiting time.

Schedules

For employees, having meeting or patient room bookings laid out on a shared screen means an easy way of identifying available spaces. Plus, they will always know about team meetings and events, even if they forgot to write them down.

4 Reasons You Should Be Using Digital Signage In Your Healthcare Office

One of the critical concepts embraced in modern offices is to design spaces that reflect your overall corporate culture. For healthcare spaces, this means engaging patients and employees in open communication, and developing a quick way to disseminate information throughout your office. When everyone is up-to-date and on the same page, things will run smoother overall.

To easily facilitate this kind of openness in a healthcare facility, digital signage works seamlessly to enhance your overall space’s look while ensuring that information is always shared timely. These four reasons should be more than enough to convince you that a digital signage setup will help boost your facility’s success.

  1. Embrace Transparency

Millennials are looking for workplaces that are more transparent with decision-making at all levels. When you have digital signage in your healthcare office, you can share relevant information with all employees immediately. Plus, if you are open to employee feedback, sharing ways that they can get in touch with you to discuss ideas is easier when everyone can look at a screen to see that’s an option.

  1. Your Team Feels Important

When you share information with everyone on your team through digital signage, they’ll feel more important, knowing that you care enough to keep them in the loop. You’ll also have the ability to specially recognize employees who hit certain milestones, as well as celebrate things like birthdays.

  1. You’ll Help Everyone Stay on Target

Your employees will be able to see actual progress made when you display metrics on your digital display screens. That means accomplishments will be easier to note, and employees will stay motivated to complete the job.

  1. You Can Connect Employees with The Public

Does your company have an active social media presence? By streaming content directly to your digital devices, your employees will be able to get involved in the action, but will also be able to see real-time feedback from patients. That means a better experience can always be developed for everyone who steps foot in your space.
