Digital Signs Put Business Information to Work
I happened to notice the announcement of an upcoming Gartner presentation at the Data+ Conference in September, Gartner is a technology research company that reports on business issues. Anyway, the catchy headline is that Gartner estimates that only 1% of businesses data is currently being analyzed. In keeping with my “Hammer” blog posting this past Monday it got me to thinking about how digital signage can address not the analytics part but the information distribution part of the equation especially for manufacturers. StrandVision systems have been used to show safety statistics (days without reportable accidents), production statistics by department and other business metrics to employees so that they can see the results of their work and get on board with quality, safety and production goals. Digital signage also can have a role in actual operations. Our digital signage displays have been installed on loading dock to show truck arrival, wait times and dispatch information giving lots of information on shipment progress – think of an airline schedule board on steroids. Once again, the potential for digital signage is limited only by the imagination.
