6 Screen Airport Digital Signage Kiosk for Passengers and Advertisers

Real Time Data Integration for Flight Information System Display – Easy Addition to Airport Digital Signage

Airport Digital Signage Kiosk Display with Chrome ManagementDigital signage was an important part of the recent Airport remodel. A 6 monitor double sided kiosk was positioned in the middle of the arrival lobby and a 3 monitor video wall on the front of the information desk were envisioned in the architectural plans. For the airport digital signage information kiosk, the management team wanted each of the airport digital signage displays to show different content. They wanted one monitor to show commercials for paid advertisers managed by Clear Channel, another monitor to show airport information and the last monitor to display the Flight Information (FIDS) or real time data integration.

Arreya Digital Signage Service makes the different content and video wall integration easy. The FIDS information or real time data feed required some custom development by the Arreya technical team. The addition of a simple slideshow changes the digital signage content between flight arrivals, departures and the flight maps.

Multiple Digital Signage Content Under One Management System

To run multiple channels of different content at different locations, the airport chose the single platform, Arreya Digital Signage Service. The Arreya channel system allows each monitor to be a different channel, but with the convenience of management under one Airport account. All the content and the displays are remotely managed through the cloud. The addition of the Google Chromebox with Chrome Enterprise Management to each display allows remote management and locks the devices into a single app kiosk mode. This ensures the Arreya airport content is the only URL. No one can access or change the designated URL set up by the airport and if the internet connection is lost, the content is cached on the Chromebox for uninterrupted viewing.

Many Uses to Go Digital In Hospital

Healthcare and hospitals are implementing hospital digital signage for marketing, information, digital donor walls and wayfinding than ever before. Streamlined communication with visitors, patients and employees saves time, money and frustration for hospital marketing teams and human resources Hospital digital signage informationdepartments.

8 Places to Use Hospital Digital Signage:

1. Hallways and Waiting Rooms – This is the best place to reach a broad crowd with upcoming events that are open to the public, honors earned by hospital staff members and departments, healthy living advice, and even weather forecasts and road conditions.

2. Cafeterias – Post menu boards in several locations in the cafeteria and maybe even just outside its door makes it easy for those browsing the menu to for customers to stand away from the serving line while they are still pondering what they crave.

3. Patient Rooms – Create a channel for patients to access on the television set that is already in patient rooms. It can display daily or weekly meal choices, special entertainment or opportunities for patients and their families, weather forecasts, and information about what patients can do to make their stay more enjoyable.

4. Donor Recognition WallsDigital donor walls and kiosks are a great way to create a fluid, easily updated and attractive list of donors, tell donor stories and recognize the work and dedication that has gone into capital campaigns, ongoing donations and specific projects. They can stand alone, or be part of a larger, more artistic donor recognition wall.hospital digital signage in cafeteria

5. Lobbies, Elevators and Stairways – Digital wayfinding can be interactive or static. It is easily updated when directions change, doctors or departments move, or building additions are built.

6. Breakrooms – Keep employees updated on upcoming event, policy changes, continuing education opportunities and hospital recognitions. Post birthdays and work anniversaries, and even the employee of the month.

7. History Displays and Hospital Museums – Older hospitals have a rich history in providing care for their communities. Share the history in an interactive display, or a slideshow of building projects, doctors who have served and made a difference, and breakthroughs that were made because of your staff through the years.

8. Healthcare Clinics and Pharmacies – Hospitals often have community clinics and acute care facilities for walkin patients and preventative care. Share upcoming health classes, wellness tips and staff information with patients as they wait.

Digital Signage Becoming Mainstream Hospital Communication

Digital signage will soon be mainstream in hospitals of all sizes, but when you are planning implementation consider rolling it out in phases. Learn how it works, what you can do with it and how you can get the most out of it. Then add more display channels or devices as the budget and staff availability to manage more displays allows.

Your hospital may not have use for digital signage in all of these places described, but more and more hospitals are implementing digital signage for 3 to 4 of these uses. Digital signage is not just for huge hospitals anymore. Arreya Digital Signage Suite has made it easy and affordable for even the smallest hospitals to have professional looking hospital digital signage.

Hospital Uses Digital Signage with Arreya to Celebrate the Gift of Life 

Hospital digital donor wall created for organ transplant center. Telling the story of both living and deceased donors in a easy to update digital display.

The Challenge: Telling the Stories of Donors

UnityPoint – Iowa Methodist Hospital was looking for a way to celebrate the lives of organ, eye and tissue donors.

They had been hanging poster boards with photos and stories, but those just got tattered on the walls and had to be recreated.

Keeping track of all of the information on hardcopies became cumbersome as more and more people saved lives through the donor program at UnityPoint – Iowa Methodist.

They wanted an attractive display that could be easily updated by staff members, and was interactive enough to draw people’s attention.

Solution:

Creating a Digital Work of Art

Other UnityPoint hospitals that Iowa Methodist is a part of had are using Arreya Digital Signage Suite, and thought it would work well for the project at Iowa Methodist.

According to Cristina Nelson, Marketing and Public Relations for the hospital, there were no other digital signage companies considered, because of the ease-of-use that marketing departments from other hospitals had experienced. Cristina had never done graphics or layout and design, aside from the occasional Microsoft Word project. Within the Arreya Creative Studio, she created a beautiful interactive donor recognition display that tells the stories of those who have left a legacy by saving others.

The Arreya digital signage display is surrounded by a physical donor wall designed and fabricated by a third party.

“We are very happy with the [Arreya] system. It has been easy to update and create attractive displays.”

Digital Signage:

Easy Software as a Service – Great Service

Cristina said that once she got into the program and worked in it, the platform was very easy to use. Being new at design programs, she did require some extra help getting started, and said “the customer service was beyond great.”

In the beginning, she and some team members had a tutorial session and it was a little overwhelming. After a second one-on-one session screensharing with Arreya tech, Josh Steinke, she was feeling more confident. Cristina feels that she would have been better prepared for the training session if she would have taken advantage of the FREE 30-day trial.

“Josh was my Godsend. Every time I had a question or had a problem, he would walk me through it, or just make a change that fixed it.” She loaded 60-70 donor story pages into Arreya, and then they needed a back button at the last minute. Josh helped her get it done in time for her opening.

At-a-glance

Arreya was implemented in the Iowa Methodist Hospital located in downtown Des Moines, IA on a 42-acre campus. The hospital employs nearly 4,000 people and has 370 staffed beds. Among its services is a state-of-the-art kidney donation and transplant program.

UnityPoint – Iowa Methodist Hospital, located in downtown Des Moines, Iowa was looking for a better way to share donor stories from their transplant program.  By implementing Arreya Digital Signage Suite, they are able to remotely deploy and update donor stories directly to their 55” monitor. The hospital’s marketing and public relations professional, Cristina Nelson, used Arreya’s built in editor to create all the content on-time to meet their hard deadline for unveiling the transformation display.

Chrome Digital Signage Appeals to the Digital Native Employee

Chrome Digital Signage Appeals to the Digital Native Employee

Strategic Employee Communications

Digital natives have grown up with a small screen in their hand and a big-screen on the wall of almost every room in their house. It only makes sense that digital natives in the workplace will look to the digital signage for employee communications too.

There are many digital ways to get the word out to team members, but if the message is in multiple locations where employees work, take breaks, and walk to and from conference rooms, they are sure to get the message.

With Arreya Digital Signage Suite, you can put the information on office digital signage and at their fingertips with a shareable link. Whether you want to share information with people at your office locations, or those working at home or doing contracting work for your company, it’s easier than ever to keep everyone informed without filling their inbox with unread emails.

Improve Employee Communication Strategies

Create a Customer-Centric Team – Put up testimonials about team members or services that and make your employees proud to work for a company that cares about the work they do. Give employees something to strive for when they are helping customers too.

Acknowledge Good Deeds Internally – A great work environment is about everybody working together. Let managers and employees submit “happy notes” when a team member helps them out or goes above and beyond to resolve an issue.

Post Reminders About Special Events – Don’t let bad communication be the reason your employees miss important meetings, employee appreciation events or training opportunities. Add the information to digital signage that they can check in the office or at home.

Show Production Stats and Sales Goals – Give the whole team something to strive for and let them know when they hit production or sales goals. Call out the employees that had the highest numbers if it applies.

Screen Placement Matters in Employee Communications

Break rooms and company cafeterias are prime real estate for digital signage if you want your employees to take the time to read and discuss. In those places, you have a captive audience, and they will likely be looking at your signage, or down at their phones while they are there. The microwave will take 2 minutes to pop popcorn. That is plenty of time for your employees to read the most important information.

In the cafeteria, your employees will sit in their groups and discuss upcoming training opportunities, job openings that would be a great promotion, or what impacted a good or bad production day.

Each department may have its own information and statistics, so you may want different displays in production than you have in IT or administration areas of your building. All of the displays can reiterate the company wide messaging.

Hallways are a great place to put digital signage for employees to check back on. If your building is large and you frequently hire new people to your team, wayfinding signage is a great resource to add on touchscreens as well.

Digital signage will step up your employee communications, and get the right information to the right people. If you need help with digital signage hardware, and an easy-to-use software platform, contact Arreya today at 319-294-6671.
