What is Digital Signage?

Digital signage consists of any form of electronic display that can be used to advertise, display information, menus and other content. Digital signage is centrally controlled via a content management system (CMS), allowing for the efficient distribution of content throughout as many or as few locations as you require. Digital signage is mainly seen within retailers and fast food restaurants who use it within shop windows or to draw attention to seasonal offers. However, it is also used by a variety of public sector institutions and corporate enterprises to provide internal communications and information for visitors.

Digital Signage FAQ's

How can digital signage be used?

Digital signage is mainly used as a means to attract attention and increase engagement levels. However, it can be used for so much more than that. Digital signage provides organisations with the power and flexibility to communicate key messages to a much wider audience, instantly. By using digital screens, you can reduce print costs, increase brand awareness and promote key marketing messages quickly and effectively. The industry sector will vary how digital signage is used, but we normally see it being used to provide product information and promotions, advertise and third-party advertising, display information such as menus, the weather, the news, product pricing and lastly as a means of entertainment.

When should I use digital signage?

Digital signage should ultimately be used if you’re looking to attract attention and increase stakeholder engagement. If you’re looking to modernise your environment, increase your revenue, or reduce your print costs and paper usage, then digital signage provides a perfect means to do this. Digital screens are a proven method that can get your product or messages noticed and in the long run future proof your business. 

What industry does digital signage work for?

Currently, we see digital signage mainly being used within the retail and hospitality sectors in the UK. However, we are starting to see banks adopt digital signage as a way to inform both customers and staff of any new products that are on the market and convey live data such as exchange rates. Digital signage doesn’t have to be limited to just banks, retail and hospitality outlets either, any corporate organisation can use digital screens as a way to advertise their products or inform internal staff of any useful employee information such as events, recognition, rota’s, KPI’s or training videos.
