StrandVision Introduces No Charge Digital Signage Override Feature for Employee Training and Communication

Technimark is first to implement automated hourly training sessions broadcast to employees in break rooms using StrandVision Digital Signage Software…

MENOMONIE, Wis.– May 21, 2013 – StrandVision Digital Signage has introduced a new free electronic signage feature that enables its customers to automatically override the normal digital signage feed in order to provide regularly scheduled or ad hoc training, host employee meetings and offer special communications. The option is an enhancement to the traditional emergency message override that replaces normal digital signage content in seconds. The administrator configures the selection on StrandVision’s Content Management System (CMS) – scheduling training for days or even weeks ahead.

The training override schedule is designed to help StrandVision customers fully leverage their digital signage systems. They can use their employee communication signage infrastructure to deliver any of StrandVision’s two dozen digital signage content templates including photos, text, PowerPoint-based slide presentations (with or without audio, depending on their installation), and even video presentations.

StrandVision’s Digital Signage network is ideal for large, multi-location companies that need to efficiently distribute standardized training or corporate-wide messages to employees. This new feature makes it easy to automatically add certification training, test preparation, breaking company news, as well as special broadcasts during benefits enrollment periods.

The override feature can be scheduled hourly, daily, weekly, or in any number of other configurations, and has similar flexibility to automatically end and return to the normal digital signage broadcast. Its “set it and forget it” approach makes it easy to reach all employees on all shifts in all locations with a single, timely, consistent message. The override feature can also be manually activated or deactivated as needed until the next scheduled change.

Technimark

Technimark, an international manufacturer based in Asheboro, N.C., was the first to implement this new feature. It is using StrandVision Digital Signage to deliver PowerPoint-based training modules directly to employees in break rooms 24/7. The training modules are scheduled to automatically override the standard digital signage content on the hour, every hour, for 15 minutes. The training modules supplement training and eliminate the additional wage cost for extended shift training meetings.

“We developed this capability specifically for Technimark but soon realized its potential for all of our customers,” said Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. “We’re now making this available to everyone as a free digital signage option selectable on our StrandVision portal. As with all of our new features, I’m sure our customers will come up with other creative ways to use the training override that’s unique to their situations.”
