As we all adjust to new standards of gathering, digital signage has proven to be a vital solution to convey dynamic messaging. Prior to this pandemic, digital signage was often seen as a solution focused solely on the customer experience; now it’s become an integral part of operations, expanding its role to include the realms of safety procedures, traffic direction, customer ordering, and more. While many industries are shifting in response to the pandemic, one thing is clear: There has never been a better time to make digital signage a core component of your AV Services, and our team of experts is ready to help you make that happen.
These solutions can seem complex, but you’re not alone. Our Legrand | AV Digital Signage Team knows the ins-and-outs of the industry and are ready to help you meet your client's objectives and create the ideal digital signage solutions.
Prior to new guidelines for group gatherings, dvLED and retail/indoor implementations were highlighted as key digital signage growth areas. The shift in the way we interact with one another has promoted a shift in the digital signage market. Legrand | AV’s infrastructure portfolio of brands has allowed us to quickly react to the market’s overall changing needs, as well as the specific needs of your clients.
The onset of COVID-19 has shaken up the future of AV, however; digital signage has taken the main stage and will be a vital tool moving forward, particularly as people prepare to return to the workplace and school. Signage will be essential in communicating information such as: Changing entry guidelines and wait times, audience analytics, purposeful wayfinding, and solutions that integrate thermal sensors to ensure re-opening requirements are met and guests/employees’ safety and health are the top priorities.
Social Distancing is radically changing how many organizations are doing business; there is a definite increase in drive-through and curbside customer care/notification vs. inside on-premise. Indoor events are migrating to more outdoor installations to reduce contact risk.
In many cases, reducing face-to-face interactions requires a simplified customer experience where content is clear, concise, and easy to comprehend. The successful implementation of all hardware components, along with simplified messaging and enhanced and effective branding, can increase your return on these solution investments. Our Digital Signage Team is prepared to help you and your customer make that transition.
Digital signage has an important role to play in all of this, and beyond. An investment in digital signage will serve you well right now, providing peace of mind to your customers while ensuring health and safety guidelines are followed. But it will also serve you well in the long-term, as digital signage’s popularity will only increase over time, especially with so many new and immediate installation opportunities. While health and safety restrictions will eventually subside, digital signage will remain, becoming a standard for many industries. Investing wisely in digital signage for present day needs avoids playing catchup in the future.
