StrandVision – Employee/Safety Communications for Aircraft Services Company
A company that provides repair and maintenance services for commercial aircraft wanted a way to communicate both events and safety information to employees on three shifts. It sought a system that would always be up to date, easy to maintain and interesting to employees. It discovered that StrandVision Digital Signage filled the bill and offered a number of administrative features that made running the signage even easier and versatile than expected. Searching the Internet, the Systems Support Analyst came upon StrandVision. It fit the bill perfectly. It had minimal equipment requirements, no licensing fees, low subscription costs, worked on the company’s existing Ethernet network and was easy to administer. The Systems Support Analyst quickly created a test digital sign using StrandVision’s free demo capability, showed it to the General Manager and others and, within two weeks, had the system up and running.
