- Centralized production and distribution of content
- Highly-configurable Departments & Users section gives the IT department full control of assigning specific access privileges.
- Web-based management console allows remote access from any location with web access.

Digital displays offer a cost-effective solution for disseminating information in order to raise awareness and increase participation in schools’ events and fundraisers. Rich media delivered on a digital display grabs attention like no static print banner or a blackboard can. By enhancing the way viewers experience information gathering, digital signage becomes an effective tool of persuasion.
