Going green with digital signage

So today is Earth Day. Some people might opt for purchasing a new Hybrid vehicle, or switch their wardrobe to organic clothing, buy an organic cotton mattress with Egyptian cotton to match, and decide to have Swiss cheese on a bed of whole grain artisan bread at tonight's dinner. The good news is that, this is not the only way to for you to do your bit. There are simpler methods, with the benefit being nothing less than for the future itself, your children, your business and of course your pocket!
If you're in the office, take a look around you right now; the heating and air conditioning systems, the vast amounts of paper in the printing area alone, the tower of Styrofoam cups in the kitchen and cafeteria, all the lights above you that are switched on in broad daylight, it's safe to say that your work environment is consuming enough amounts of energy.

The pulp and paper industry is the fifth largest consumer of energy worldwide, and most materials like some printer cartridges are not biodegradable. This can only mean that our precious surrounding ecosystem is deteriorating and today is as a good a time as any to consciously identify that digital signage solutions not only help in the ongoing effort to reverse the effects of 150 years of rapid industrialization, but are, needless to say, cheaper over time than traditional print mediums when communicating with a large, diverse target audience.

With print costs rising steadily each year, due to increased paper, printing and transportation costs, never mind the manufacturing of transparent plastic film and specialized inks required to print backlit signs, switching to digital signage solves the question of costs, waste and proper disposal before it's even raised; making digital signage the greener choice.*

One of our products; digital posters, offers an alternative to traditional posters. It allows for a LCD screen to play a single piece of content without the screen been spilt into various segments. This works great for a poster or Menu board type layout or where a single very important customer or product message is required. You as the client get to change content as frequently as necessary without having to deal with issues like the printing of posters and distribution across the country.

Our digital signage serves a range of industries, from banking, retail, airports, corporate environments, factories, mines or wherever you would like really. It serves a range of purposes too, from managing queues, creating a crisis communication platform, training (through video on demand) customer self-service in the form of kiosks.

Furthermore to modest but real ecological benefits, changing to dynamic digital signage solutions presents more ways to reach more people at a lower cost per person. Now is that not change you can take to the bank?
