After all, the most glaring difference between the two types of services is the cost. Custom developers seemingly charge a lot, but their online counterparts can somehow just charge a small amount—albeit indefinitely. If the comparison ended there, discerning business managers would just sign up for the latest and coolest website online, pay a monthly fee, and [...]

The Corporate Communication Imperative

Quality communication is the quintessence of any thriving business or institution, and now with digital signage being utilized for corporate communications, managers can engage back-of-office employees while simultaneously welcoming visitors as they enter the front door—reaching each segment with unique messages, purposes, and locations. Think about this for a moment: A corporate facility or office park can be a campus-sized puzzle for visitors. Often, even getting timely messages out to employees scurrying about the office complex can be [...]
