School District of Philadelphia Uses Digital Signage to Promote Get Healthy Philly

Horizon Software International, the leader in K-12 food service technology, announces the successful implementation of 100 digital signs throughout the School District of Philadelphia's K-12 school cafeterias.
"The successful implementation of SourceBoards throughout the School District of Philadelphia is a major milestone for the partnership between Horizon Software and Touchtown". The SourceBoard solution will allow schools within the district to better communicate with students and faculty through digital signs placed in front of meal lines. The ease of communication will translate to reduced costs and increased efficiency for the schools. In addition, the digital signs will assist with promoting various initiatives important to the school district. Horizon partnered with Touchtown, Inc. (www.touchtown.us) to offer this digital communication medium that allows schools to easily broadcast nutritional information, menus, organization news, activity announcements, videos and more to HDTVs strategically placed throughout their facilities. SourceBoards in the School District of Philadelphia engage students not only in understanding the nutritional values of the foods they are eating, but also in helping them make more informed decisions on their food choices.
