Inside Out: Digital Signing

How Your Company Can Help with the Digital Signing Evolution.

Companies like TechLink can do many different types of functions for your business when it comes to digital signing. The systems that TechLink offer can run the gamut from helping to design, managing, execution, and follow-up after the project is in place. No matter how successful Techlink is, no matter how much planning and implementation they can offer, it is your company that can make or break the effort. Think of it as the inside out aspect of digital signing.

Each new product rollout relies on the information and access to it. You want your staff t be able to answer questions from customers and be able to speak with authority about how important the product or service will be to the end user. You give them tools, training, and often some enthusiastic speech about how this is the ‘future of the company’. I have one question: how is that approach working for you? Honestly?

If you are being honest, it probably is working with the acceptable limits of just okay. While companies like TechLink, the premiere digital sign installer in North America can help in almost every step of the way, no matter where the sign or screen is being installed, they cannot create advocates for the rollout without your help.

Here’s what you need to do.

How to make your TechLink project prosper: involve your staff

Talk up the project among supervisory staff first. Involving this group in some of the initial rollout meetings between you and companies like TechLink can help give them a certain amount of confidence that the new initiative will not be simply ‘sprung’ on them at completion. In this sort of inclusive type situation, they may have suggestions that could increase the overall return on your investment.

Talk up the progress of the project. In this phase, you want your supervisory staff know that the information you have is in front of their questions about the project’s progress. This will give them a sense that their input and participation is important. This will also help with the introduction of the signing to the real world. If your supervisors are well-respected among their group, they should have no problem generating the necessary enthusiasm among their direct charges.

This in-advance information, even if it is only piecemeal will create a feeling of inclusion and if it does not, you will have some valuable information on how they will eventually present it to customers. This will let you get ahead of the problem and address any issues. Of course, your project manager at TechLink can often help as well.

Talk about why you made this decision. A digital sign rollout will provide you with several ROI options. If it is supposed to act as information center, giving your customers knowledge for future purchases, then you will need to explain to your employees how you want the nurturing to take place, when, and how. If the signing is designed to get the customer to spend directly, such as with hotel kiosks or QSR applications, train your people on how to make the interface seem integral to the success of the company. If your supervisors have done a good job evangelacizing the program, the rollout should not be a shock. Rather it should be greatly anticipated.

Listen to the people – and the customers. In advance of any rollout, not all information is known. You have the best intentions of increasing the human value in the process of the rollout but may have missed a detail or two along the way. TechLink can iron out the details, work with your people, and complete the project in a timely manner. But some things will remain unknown until the digital signing is actually in place. Listen. And when you hear something, react. TechLink can help with those changes of direction.


Your Outdoor Digital Sign Initiative

How to Make Your Digital Signs Pop!

How many CEOs watching the Portland Trailblazers looked at the huge gossamer-like screens hanging the Moda Center and wondered whether they could use them for their business? If you have never witnessed an Blazer introduction, particularly when they are in a red hot playoff atmosphere, four large see-through screens are unfurled and when the lights go down, logos, and players are portrayed in building high glory. It is just as awesome to behold at home as it is doubly fun to witness in the arena.

There is a challenge when we witness digital signing of this nature. It is unique and compelling. But is it effective in garnering new customers? Is the chance that your signing will create an interactivity spurred on by the increased use of smartphones and tablets enough to garner additional sales? NEC’s Director of Sales – Vertical Solutions, Richard Ventura, and NEC’s National Manager for Solutions Sales and Operations, Michael Ferrer believes it is. He recently suggested, “Always remember that the requirements of a project are what will drive its uniqueness.”

What is 3G/4G LTE Deployment?
3G/4G LTE (long term evolution) offers your business connectivity with a focus on a quantifiable profit projection. When TechLink deploys your project in conjunction with the contractor you hire, we understand that success depends on consistent revenue, customer satisfaction, and in many instances, business productivity. Any erosion in the ability of a company’s connectivity to service these revenue sources will have a direct impact on your profits.

3G/4G LTE deployment provides state-of-the-art wireless connectivity that meets or exceeds current industry standards. Because TechLink professionals, from project managers to field technicians understand these demands, system loads are monitored and tested to ensure maximum abilities are met and built with future connectivity expansion in mind.

How does 3G/4G LTE Deployment work?
3G, or third generation connectivity offers quick and efficient internet and is the most widely used system. 4G, or fourth generation is considered the fastest connectivity currently available. LTE is the scalable future of connectivity. TechLink understands that every project is different and the connectivity can vary from location to location. 4G cellular is still be constructed and is not as widely available as 3G systems. Each of these system connections comes with a different cost.

When TechLink builds a deployment plan, the system is built to be efficient and as fast as possible yet scalable for future generation availability. This requires expert technicians to not only maintain the current systems but build on those systems in a cost-effective way. Working directly with your contractor, TechLink can match, if not exceed your current expectations and system requirements.

What does this sort of deployment project entail?
Your TechLink deployment will include a clear mapping of the site. The RF site surveys conducted by the project manager will determine numerous factors including custom and external antenna installation requirements, projected energy needs, how your current WiFi systems work, and determining the need for wireless point-to-point applications. Any potential problems are identified in advance of the deployment to ensure there are no roadblocks during system implementation.

TechLink will also continue to monitor the system throughout the process for potential problems to ensure connectivity expectations are met. Our management, measurement, and reporting can all be monitored throughout the project using our customer portal.

TechLink understands the financial costs of each of these systems and works to find the right solution. Building each system to be scalable and often working with shared organized networks (SON), TechLink can improve and upgrade connectivity over time.

TechLink is hired by your contractor because of our expertise. Outsourcing satellite installation projects makes sense for a number of reasons. A business should be able to reach customers anywhere at anytime. In many instances, this means reaching beyond urban centers to more rural or ex-urban locations. To do this, a business must escape the confines of ground-based broadband. Terrestrial broadband has distinct limitations and while adequate for big city applications, most businesses find vast, untapped customer bases well-beyond those boundaries.

What is digital signage?

ProjectorDigital signage is used both in-house and as a form of advertising that has no equal. It can be used in a variety of ways that will reach employees and customers with customized messages that target a specific demographic. It can be used to give your employees up-to-date information about projects and meetings or simply to tell them what the cafeteria is serving.
