switch digital signage software...Hang on just a second, we will get there.  First, tell me you read that in your best Jeff Foxworthy voice, because we did.  

Ok, now we can move onto the good stuff.  Do you currently have a digital signage software system?  Or have you looked into digital signage but maybe were turned off for one of the following reasons?  There are over 300 different softwares available, so it can be a difficult choice.  

So how do I know it's time to switch?  And why do we recommend and provide Signagelive when we are changing out customer's digital signage software?

You Might Need A Digital Signage Software Switch If...

lower cost digital signage.jpg...you settled for a "cheaper" digital signage system in the past because they were so expensive when you purchased.  Good news, Signagelive boasts that costs of deploying and managing a digital signage network has been reduced by 50% over the years.  Due to Cloud based services, and System on Chip hardware, it is not nearly as expensive as it was years ago.  

Now is the time to let go of cheap, and update with an affordable digital signage software that offers all the support and advice required to make a successful switch.  

...you are getting overwhelmed with the multiple modules needed to purchase and setup before content can even be displayed.  Are you lost among servers, modules, layouts, licenses, requirements, add-ons and bolt ons?  Signagelive took all of the servers, modules, and features and put them on the Cloud.  All you need to have now is a web browser and a media player.  They take care of the network, software, and support.  

This is called ease of use.  Now you can focus on your message to your audience. 

throwing away money...you have to shell out additional monies when you need support and/or software updates.  Signagelive includes 100% support including live chat, as well as, all software updates for the life of your purchased software license.  

Avoid the ugly game of additional costs or even your digital signage not working.  When it's all included, you have nothing to worry about. 

...you are using a rebranded or expensive PC to playback your digital signage content.  Admittedly PC's have lost some of their bulk and have come down in price, however Signagelive is committed to providing customers with the widest support for digital signage playback technology available.  

If a ChromeOS device, SMIL device or Smart Signage Display (among others) can do the same job for a reduced cost, doesn't that make sense?  The move from PC supported players, to non-PC or no-PC players is becoming more prevalent.  

...you are frustrated with creating or sourcing your content.  Great content is important to Signagelive and because of this, here are a few of the key features they include so that content doesn't have to be the source of frustration.  

  • Easy to use "drag and drop" Layout Designer to create multi-zone templates with playlist zones, ticker feeds, and widgets; or use the existing templates and upload your own images.  The options are endless. signagelive layout design
