StrandVision introduced digital signage database capabilities at InfoComm The new free feature allows administrators to easily display information that normally resides in corporate databases, such as meeting notices, schedules, room assignments, birthdays and anniversaries, on StrandVision digital signs.
The StrandVision database interface enhances both communications effectiveness and viewer experience in virtually any venue with little staff effort, according to the company. For instance, health clubs, hotels, retirement communities and resorts can upload their activity schedules, room reservations and special events by exporting the information from their scheduling software to the StrandVision system.
An employee communications digital signage installation can use output from the human resources system to display and update anniversaries and birthdays, as well as employee events, safety performance and notices, newsletter content and benefits notices. Sales operations can use the system to recognize performance based on information from sales tracking databases.
“StrandVision digital signage is all about flexibility and efficiency – while keeping it simple to install, use and maintain,” remarked Mike Strand, StrandVision founder and CEO. “We’ve offered some basic database features in the past and, based on requests from our customers, we’ve developed this more robust application. Now, they can import information, schedule the data and control the way it is displayed.”
The administrator simply logs onto the StrandVision Web host and selects the database entry option from the menu. He/she enters the data or uploads the file to the StrandVision server, creates a database-enabled slide and adds it to the digital signage rotation for inclusion at the next refresh – within minutes. Each item can be selected separately or grouped as part of a scrolling or crawling text field on the page. Using StrandVision’s built-in slide scheduling capabilities, the administrator can also designate what information is shown when – automatically adding and removing events from the display as the times or dates move in and out of range.
The StrandVision digital signage system accepts data from Microsoft Access, Excel and Word, enterprise-level databases, including Oracle and SAP, as well as from Web applications, such as Salesforce.com and Web databases – any application that provides text-based delimited files can be used as a source.
