Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NPC or Novartis) in conjunction with Scala Certified Partner Advanced AV implemented a digital sign network to connect the 15 buildings of the 200 acre Novartis campus in East Hanover, NJ. The network, running over the Novartis local IP infrastructure, informs employees of company news, employee events, and benefits.
The implementation of a digital signage network represented a significant cost reduction and provided Novartis with the ability to communicate with employees on a real-time basis. Upon implementation of the digital network, the cost of designing and printing signs was reduced by 90%. Additionally the cost of distributing and disposing of posters was eliminated.
The network provides a platform to develop customized message content relevant for a specific location and a specific audience, integrate corporate news and business issues and provide a real-time employee message board over the network. Feedback from employees and corporate management alike is overwhelmingly positive. Now, employees look forward to receiving the news of the day throughout the company.
