5. 3 ways digital signage can deliver improved communication at the workplace

If we are completely honest, we have to admit we regularly ignore or miss important emails. A study by The Radicati Group found that in 2015, the average employee sent and received 122 emails per day. The study also expected that number to increase to 126 emails by 2019. With so many emails flying back and forth, it's easy to see why that important email regarding a company get together or a change to the 401k can go unnoticed. Perhaps a better solution to this communication overload is to provide a more convenient source of information: digital signage. There are three key ways digital signage can boost communication in the workplace: convenience, interactivity and culture.

Cities around the globe are adopting smart technologies. New York City, for example, deployed LinkNYC kiosks, which offer Wi-Fi services and advertisements to residents. Services such as these aren't just boosting Wi-Fi, they are also delivering improved quality of life.

1. How to measure digital signage ROI

It is essential that you have a clear idea of what exactly you want your digital signage system to achieve. Is it to improve productivity? Increase event participation? Improve the guest experience? Boost online interactions? Your goal has to be relevant and measurable, and shouldn't be simply to give people information. Your objectives will determine both what you're going to show on digital signs and how you’re going to judge success, so they need to be well thought out.
