Source of information

You are probably familiar with the following situation: You go to a shopping center and look for a specific department. But you don’t know the place. In these moments digital screens will help you to find the shops you are looking for.

Many think of digital signage in shopping centers as static wayfinding signs but you can also communicate information interactively and in real-time (e. g. through searching functions and integrated language recognition). 

Digital signage also supports information exchange at the workplace, be it through the communication of working ways, changes, business news or fire safety instructions

 

 

Your advantages with digital signage as source of information:

  • User friendly communication of information
  • Modern company image
  • Transparent communication on the workplace
  • Customer loyalty

 

The customers of FRAMR already use digital signage successfully and benefit from these advantages. You’re welcome to take a look at our case studies to convince yourself of the versatile application possibilities.

Digital signage as an interactive communication medium

Regardless of the application, digital signage promises improved interaction with your target group. That makes your business more attractive and improves user experience. Furthermore you are given more creative implementation possibilities, for instance through sweepstakes or alike. Sebastian (marketing team FRAMR) describes his experiences with interactive digital signage elements as the following:

“When I visited a mall, that was about two months ago, there was an information terminal at the parfumerie. Through that, you could participate in a sweepstake and win a coupon which is worth 50 euros. The interesting thing about it: I probably would have not filled out a slip of paper but I participated through the digital way. That was primarily because of the appearance but also because of the progress bar when completing the single steps. I had the feeling that I completed something besides my participation. Digital signage is an eye catcher compared to a piece of paper and it improves the appearance. Businesses also appear more modern and it’s more fun to interact with them.”
