We all know that the cloud is a valuable asset in our everyday lives, but have you thought about how it can be used in digital signage solutions too?
Cloud-based digital signage is swiftly taking over costly and outdated on-premise platforms, because the hardware required for an on-premise solution is costly to install and even more of a hassle to maintain. You are bound to run into numerous technical issues and money headaches.
Digital signage platforms on the cloud are simply cheaper, easier to install and set up, and they are more intuitive to use. When you make the switch to a cloud-based digital signage solution, you will be able to manage and store content online and remotely control your network of displays with ease.
Once companies fully understand how this technology works and see how it can be utilized in their day-to-day workflows, they will ultimately see an improvement to their bottom line. If that’s not enough to convince you to make the switch to cloud-based digital signage, maybe the information below will help. We’ve listed just a few more benefits and key reasons to switch.
Simple Set Up and Use
The amount of time and money spent to set up on-premise digital signage is often a major pain point for businesses. They are especially difficult, time-consuming, costly, and disruptive to everyday operations at the setup stage.
On-premise digital signage also requires that you have in-house MDM technical expertise to handle any recurring maintenance or updates necessary for the databases that support your devices.
Now with cloud-based digital signage, organizations get their equipment up and running in almost no time at all, typically within the same day, and without having to rely on internal networks or servers. Cloud-based digital signage solutions ultimately make it simple and convenient to manage, store and update your content.
The servers and other equipment required for an on-premise digital signage solution can be costly, as well as the cost of electricity and storage space needed. It is also typically more expensive in the long run because they tend to require more setup and maintenance, which costs valuable time and resources.
Cloud-based signage is the more affordable option.
Not only do you save money by not needing to store and maintain an on-site server, but you also save money by not having to purchase any proprietary hardware. Cloud-based digital signage solutions require far less assistance and ultimately cost less to maintain.
Once you have purchased and are utilizing a cloud-based digital signage solution, any software updates are free and automatic, so your digital signage solutions are always up to date and improving.
Remote Management and Real Time Updates
A major con against on-site digital signage systems is that you also have to be on-site to operate and manage them. The ability to remotely control your network and real-time update your content is one of the biggest benefits of cloud-based digital signage solutions. Flexibility is key for businesses that want to keep their content consistent, fresh, and up-to-date at all times.
Cloud-based digital signage networks and remote management functionality make it possible to sign-in whenever and wherever you happen to be. You get simple and powerful proof of proper play, and you can even remotely configure some CMS applications.
With remote management capabilities you have an instant view of your devices. Remote screen view saves time and money, and ultimately reduces the number of touchpoints needed for digital signage deployment.
Time to Switch!
The days of on-premise digital signage solutions have come and gone. With cloud-based digital signage, everything from managing and storing content to remotely controlling your network will become super intuitive, convenient, and efficient.
