It Might Cost You If You’re Not Careful
Shopping for digital signage software service becoming a nightmare? One minute you’re impressed with what the signage will do, and the next you are are discouraged by the price to manage all 25 of your displays. Digital signage pricing can look acceptable until you read the fine print and add up the extra costs. Arreya Digital Signage service has no hidden fees, no per device fees and no contract.
Beware the Digital Signage Pricing Traps
The Proprietary Hardware Pit
Many companies create digital signage players that are proprietary to their company and only works with their software. By the time you spend $200-$800 each player, and add a player to every screen that you have running content, the equipment cost to get started is prohibitive. If you can afford the hardware expense, when you get the screens running after such an investment, you just hope that everything works seamlessly, because you are already in too deep to switch companies, and can’t use the equipment for anything else.
Proprietary hardware is built to ensure that the software and the screen work together to show your display. If the hardware is outdated, and they upgrade software, you may have to replace your hardware to make sure the platform continues to work. Automatic software updates can cause your digital signage to stop working. In order to get your digital signage working again, you will need to access the proprietary hardware and update the firmware on the device before you can see your content again.
You don’t need a media player to make content for digital signage when you subscribe to Arreya Digital Signage Suite. The developers of Arreya Digital Signage Suite, flipped the development upside down to take the hardware out of the middle. You can use most screens or computer monitors, tablets and phones to show your Arreya content directly from your subscription. The addition of Google Chrome devices gives you the most powerful and reliable platform on the market. Your Arreya content is cached on the Chrome device, so if you lose your internet connection, your digital signage doesn’t go dark. Arreya works in full offline mode. Any hardware compatibility questions can be answered by the Arreya team.
Cost Per Screen vs. Arreya Channel Pricing
A cost per screen payment structure may be great if you have one digital signage display to show one presentation, but if you have 3 or more screens the costs can quickly get out of control. If your organization is relying on signage for communications, rather than building ROI, it may not make sense to pay per screen.
Arreya digital signage pricing model or channel pricing allows you to show your channel of content on unlimited number of devices, including tablets and phones. Much like your own personal television station, your content can now be delivered to a larger audience without additional fees. It also gives you a wider deliverable platform for multiple locations and multiple channel’s of content.
Lack of Tech Support Leaves You Hanging
If you are paying monthly fees for your signage, you want a great looking display that is reliable, and is easy to manage. If you need help troubleshooting your digital signage and the digital signage company you are using is unresponsive, you will spend a lot of time trying to fix what may be simple, or may need fixing at the software level. Arreya is developed by Arreya, no outsourcing or third party developers to try and communicate with. Arreya tech support is the best in the industry. Always available and free to every Arreya subscriber. They will always make sure your issues are solved, whether it is on our end, or making suggestions about what your own IT department may do to affect your display.
“Thank you very much for the outstanding support you have provided in helping me navigate Arreya. It’s a shame that customer service is lacking in most online businesses. You are a cut way above the rest!”
