Digital Signage - What, Why, and How

Digital signage is a broad term that usually refers to technology utilised to display various content on electronic screens.

Our approach to Digital Signage is PinToMind: a user-friendly, web-based tool specifically designed to enhance the daily information flow in all kinds of businesses and organisations. Think of it as a digital bulletin board: an elegant yet easy way to manage and display current news, announcements, and other captivating content on wall-mounted screens.

In this article, discover seven sigificant advantages of Digital Signage, with a special focus on what we like to refer to as Digital Notice Boards or Information Screens:

1️⃣ Life is easier when everyone knows what’s going on

Whether it’s visitors waiting in the reception area or employees seeking information about today’s agenda - digital signage allows you to easily share a wide array of information, from the latest news and handy tips to important reminders.

Digital notice boards are adaptable to various settings and audiences. You’ll find that the possibilities are vast.

Additionally, with our mobile app, PinToMind Go, your audience can receive all updates directly on the device they check most frequently throughout the day.

As we often say, “Life is easier when everyone knows what’s going on” - wouldn’t you agree?

2️⃣ Capture attention

Screens naturally attract our gaze, making them exceptionally effective for communicating messages and disseminating crucial information.

Combining text with images is a particularly potent strategy for sharing information and messages on screens. Recognizing this, we provide direct access to thousands of royalty-free images from Unsplash for all your text and image posts.

Uploading your own images to your account’s library is also straightforward, allowing you to use or reuse them as needed.

Moreover, our extensive selection of large emojis and icons has become exceedingly popular for adding some colour (and fun), and not least for their ability to attract attention.

3️⃣ Create engagement and build community

Digital signage empowers you to not only share knowledge and information but also to nurture engagement and a sense of community.

For instance, information screens serve as ideal channels for sharing good news, celebrating birthdays, reminiscing about enjoyable communal events, or promoting the launch of a new product. Such posts contribute to enthusiasm and a positive atmosphere.

Additionally, consider the impact of countdowns on upcoming events and milestones. Our countdown feature boosts anticipation and engagement and is a popular post. Image with a digital bulletin board displaying a countdown post in a office landscape lunch area.


4️⃣ Information screens are stylish and functional

Information screens represent the modern, sleek, and functional evolution of traditional bulletin boards - ideal for receptions, meeting rooms, cafeterias, or any desired location.

Achieving a professional and stylish appearance for your screens is easy with our selection of ready-made themes and flexible layouts. Utilize them as is or tailor them to your preferences. Additionally, you have the option to upload and showcase your logo.

Design expertise isn’t necessary for content creation either. We offer a variety of ready-made templates for different types of posts, ensuring they always look great. It couldn’t be easier!

5️⃣ Always relevant and up-to-date

Might you be thinking, “Not another platform to update,” while envisioning the bulletin board cluttered with outdated notices, or the company blog that’s been dormant since last year?

We totally understand! That’s why we’re excited to share that one of the standout advantages of digital signage is its ease of updating.

A key reason for this is the preference for brevity in messages displayed on digital notice boards, which lessens the demand of time and effort for content creation.

With PinToMind, you’ll also have great options for Smart Scheduling for posts right at your fingertips, ensuring the display of only the most current and relevant information.

Moreover, our integrations with popular services such as Microsoft and Google Calendars, Power BI, SharePoint, Facebook, and Instagram allow PinToMind to automatically retrieve and showcase the latest content from these platforms.
