StrandVision Digital Signage Enhances Customer-Facing Front-of-House Capabilities with Events Scheduling Displays

StrandVision adds a new free digital signage software reader board feature that directly imports schedules from proprietary and commercial events management and sales software to display event lists on digital media players on the StrandVision digital signage network.

Menomonie, Wis. February 26, 2013


StrandVision Digital Signage today announced the ability to incorporate events scheduling information directly into its digital signage software. The new feature works with most events management software products including Delphi and can be customized to support proprietary and in-house developed meeting and event scheduling and sales systems.

The events scheduling integration is attractive to hotels and convention centers, restaurants and function halls, and even houses of worship and schools. It was initially developed for the proprietary sales application for one of the top ten global hotel chains. As part of the implementation process, StrandVision worked directly with the customer's IT staff to develop and to receive certification for the interface that the digital signage cloud servers use to access the information in real time.

The StrandVision events scheduling digital signage software is easy to use. Once the interface is developed, StrandVision subscribers simply select the reader board capability on the StrandVision Content Management System (CMS) dashboard to have the events information displayed on their digital media players in a variety of formats showing all events for the day or only those that occur in the future or are currently in session.

The scheduling information can be added to other promotional or informational digital signage content mixes or drive room-specific displays. With the split-screen capability of the Streaming Video package, events can be displayed at all times while other business marketing material appears in other regions of the digital signage player screens. The StrandVision interface cuts down on administrative time required to post meeting information on multiple systems and also increases accuracy and timeliness.

"StrandVision Digital Signage can import room and events schedules from most events management software packages," said Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. "We have global customers that are using the capability for both back-of-house employee communication and front-of-house customer-facing business marketing and room notices."
