Data-driven Digital Signage using Calendars
Nowadays, there is a hidden battle taking place in every busy workspace – a battle for meeting space.
People forget to look at the calendar. It’s easy to assume an empty room as free while it’s actually booked. Interruptions and delays are commonplace. Anything that helps you organize and streamline your staff and clients’ daily activities could easily save you a ton of money.
Why digital signage?
Digital signage is a powerful tool for displaying calendar activities right when this information is needed. No questions asked.
From boardroom sessions and lectures to appointments at the doctor’s to concert showtimes.
A digital signage display that keeps track of your events and drives attendance to your establishment is, over time, worth its weight in gold. Regardless of the size and type of your organization.
It’s all about the widget.
A widget is a simple item that dynamically auto-updates to display live data. The widget is the ideal digital signage component for displaying concise up-to-date calendar information to audiences most concerned at a specific moment in time for maximum impact.
Elementi software features 250 widgets, a dozen of which are designed to work with your everyday calendar tool – be it Microsoft Outlook, Office 365, Google Calendar, or Facebook Events. Elementi widgets are available right from the start, included in your software package.
What’s more, Elementi widgets are a simple way to easily connect your calendar data to a digital signage display that anyone can manage: a dedicated technical person or an assistant. Simply updating the calendar you use on a daily basis will update the content displayed on the screen.
