Enhance Donor Recognition with Digital Donor Walls for Non Profits

Enhance Donor Recognition with Digital Donor Walls for Non Profits

Established non profit organizations such as the SPCA, United Way, YMCA, and the Red Cross do amazing work for their communities. But the work they do wouldn’t be possible without generous donations. Digital donor walls are the best tools for non profits to recognize donors. They are also excellent for encouraging new donations.

Modern and Cost Effective Donor Recognition

Digital donor walls are a modern, automated method of donor recognition.  They can be used to create digital signs that recognize donors, display photos and biographies, and provide thank you messages. Digital donor walls also allow non profit organizations to keep their donors updated with news and events, as well as updates on how donations are being used. This is something that was impossible or extremely difficult to do with traditional donor recognition methods.

Digital donor walls have a number of advantages over traditional paper-based acknowledgement methods.  They are low-maintenance, easy to set up, and require minimal upfront costs. They can be updated in real time, providing the most up-to-date information on donations and programs. In addition, digital donor walls are easily accessed by donors and potential new supporters on location, and content can even be accessed on their phones.

Improving Visibility

Digital donor walls for non profits increase visibility on location, but they can be visible from anywhere. While some digital signage softwares and donor recognition programs only display on one screen, Progressive Web Applications (PWAs) can display content anywhere. PWAs allow non profit organizations to recognize donors globally. Anyone with a stable internet connection and a modern web browser can view donor content.

Increasing Transparency

Digital donor walls also provide organizations with a platform to showcase stories from those they are helping. This can be extremely powerful in raising awareness and inspiring others to become involved with the organization’s mission.

By prominently displaying information on how donations are used, digital donor walls allow organizations to communicate directly with their supporters. As a result, digital donor walls increase overall transparency and accountability for non profits. Through this communication, donors can feel confident that their contributions are being used in the most effective and efficient manner. 

Strategic Donor Recognition

Finally, digital donor walls help to increase donations through targeted campaigns and fundraising events. Organizations use built in analytics to strategically schedule when to display their targeted campaigns and upcoming events.By engaging directly with current and prospective donors, with the right messaging at the right time, organizations can build relationships that can lead to more frequent,larger, or even new gifts. Digital donor walls allow for non profit organizations to strategically deploy campaigns, recognize donors for their generosity, and encourage new donations.

Improving Customer Experiences with Digital Signage

Improving Customer Experiences with Digital Signage

Everytime someone interacts with your business, you want them to have the best experience possible. You want to leave them feeling relieved and thankful that they chose to work with you. That’s why the customer experience needs to be as convenient and stress free as possible. There are simple tactics for improving customer experiences with digital signage.

The COVID 19 pandemic accelerated the need and desire to work or make purchases from home. Businesses have had to adapt to make themselves present digitally.  Digital signage has played a huge role in improving customer experiences. Making it more enjoyable to engage with a business whether in person, from home, or anywhere with an internet connection. 

Make Waiting Less Painful

wait time queue digital displayWe all have to wait in lines, and some of us can tolerate it better than others. As a business owner, whenever you have the opportunity to reduce wait time for your customers, you try your best to seize that opportunity. Digital signage can ease waiting. 

One great way to reduce wait times is to get customers the information they need without having to find someone to ask. Frequently asked questions (FAQ) pages are a great way to achieve this goal. You simply compile a list of common questions and answer them on your site. You can use digital signage software to display these answers along with directions, or any other information that might speed things up for you and your customers. Another way you can save time is by displaying current inventory with your signs. This gives customers the ability to see what’s available without having to physically check throughout the store. 

For many businesses, wait times are unavoidable, at least to some extent. While business owners and staff have already done everything they can to make processes as efficient as possible, customers will still need to be patient and wait their turns. Why not give them something interesting to look at while they wait? You can add YouTube videos to your displays, news, weather, and live feeds to your social media. The signs can be used to update customers on upcoming sales or events as well. This is an opportunity with a captive audience, so if possible, display something that can strengthen brand reputation. You can show testimonials, past projects, or just some information about your staff to make things more personal and relatable for the customer. 

Increase Customer Engagement

interactive digital kioskInteractive digital signs are an awesome way for customers to interact with businesses, and there are so many different ways to use them. Customers can use touchscreens to navigate through a timeline or a slideshow about company history and values. This is a great method to tell customers your story. It allows them to connect with your brand on a much deeper level. You can display Twitter feeds and customers can see what they tweet using your hashtag,  and you can allow them to post reviews from their phone right to your signs in real time.

Digital signage software can also be used to place orders, or hold a customer’s place in line. They can tap the screen to check in, and see an estimated amount of time remaining before it’s their turn. All of these are great options for building value with your customers. These tools are great for managing customer expectations, and they give customers increased control over their experiences. 

Intuitive Wayfinding

digital signage kiosk wayfinding arreyaBeing lost is the worst, and many customers will prefer not to find someone to ask where to go. Businesses are using digital signage software to solve this problem, saving customers time, but also saving their employees from constantly directing traffic. Signs can be used to display maps and hours of operation, and when using touchscreen displays, customers can tap on the map to see where they need to go. They can navigate through the maps provided to different buildings or floors, and the maps can be updated as needed. Updates can be pushed out instantaneously, and it’s easy to make the changes. CLICK HERE for more information on how digital signage can be used for wayfinding.

Keeping Everyone Safe

alerts digital signage arreyaIt’s so critical for businesses to have a plan in place to keep everyone safe, especially in the event of an emergency. Of course every business is required to have fire alarms and illuminated exit signs, but some of them have complicated buildings that can be hard to navigate.

Digital signage software can eliminate confusion with clear displays on how to get out of the building, or where to go if there is impending dangerous weather or a security breach. The signs can be used to display weather forecasts and breaking news as well, so if something dangerous happens nearby, everyone can be made aware as soon as possible. 

Rebirth of QR Codes

qr code digital signage software

There is a time and place for business cards and brochures, but a lot of customers end up throwing them away as soon as they walk out the door, even if the information is pertinent. Using QR codes allows businesses to share exactly what they want with customers without adding another business card to their overfilled wallets.

Many restaurants have adopted the usage of QR codes instead of paper menus because of the COVID 19 pandemic. This was done to reduce the spread of germs primarily, but it also made things a lot more convenient. Customers simply scan the QR code and get the menu, url, image, video, or whatever content they need right on their phone, no paper needed. Updates are made to menus or other content as needed with no additional cost or waste.  LEARN MORE about the impact QR codes are having on commerce globally.

A Vital Part of Business

It’s vital that businesses focus on what their customers are experiencing and what pain points exist. If possible, we want to remove or mitigate those pain points. Digital signage software can save time and headaches, like displaying live inventory, showing customer’s their place in line, and providing them with QR codes so they can get information they need on their own devices.

Digital signage can be used to build brand awareness and entertain customers while they wait. These are all great tools for businesses that want to increase engagement and make the customer experience more enjoyable, convenient, and interactive.

9 Reasons to Upgrade to Digital Signage

9 Reasons to Upgrade to Digital Signage

Upgrade to Digital Signage with Digital Signage Kiosks

For years digital signage has been a growing force in advertising, branding, and digital communications. Every industry is upgrading to intuitive digital displays; government, healthcare, education, retail, and more. The benefits of digital signage lead to improved visitor experiences through prompting users to take action. These actions could include learning about events, providing information, and many other options. Also these displays provide unified branding and many use cases for industries that adopt it.

One of the biggest pain points that is stopping people from upgrading to digital signage is resisting change. The resistant for change comes from both sides of a company. Business owners fear that customers will not understand newer technology, and that it will lead to a decrease in sales. Moreover, owners themselves fear moving to a new system, when their current system is working.

The digital signage industry is expected to grow into a $45.30 billion market by 2030. The demand for signage is growing, and as demands increases, the products improve. Digital signage has already become faster, more secure, and easier to learn than ever. In addition, these digital signs increase sales with more views, improve customer satisfaction, and even have touch and touch-free options. Owners no longer have to worry about customers understanding or engaging with a technology, as they are surrounded by digital screens everyday.

Digital signage can do so much to improve on outdated methods of advertising, branding, and communications. Just because something is currently working, does not meant that is cannot be improved on. The smart decision is to embrace this digital option rather than resist it. Get ahead of the curve by learning about the benefits of making the upgrade to digital signage from outdated methods and technologies.

 

1. Upgrade to Interact with Audiences

For years companies have struggled creating a useful and meaningful customer experience. While posters, flyers, and welcome desks can provide some interaction, they often take a lot of time, money, and resources to maintain. Likewise, posters and flyers are extremely passive, and lead to a lack of customer engagement and education. Often these forms of communication are lost on walls full of other advertising, leading to an overall muddled experience. Welcome desks also come with their fair share of problems; bad first impressions, time consuming processes, and a lack of visitor independence.

Free up your staff to work elsewhere besides waiting at a desk or spending time on physical advertising that may not be noticed. Digital signage allows visitors to get where they need to, check-in, learn about your organization, and read about company values on their own. It also provides an option to access maps and information on their phones, rather than having an employee spend time walking them through processes.

Digital signage is a professional method of displaying information. Link to different menus, display time and weather, include instructions, all in one place and without losing anything in the clutter. Displays have a 400% higher rate of being seen and engaged with, which alone makes the upgrade to digital signage worth it.

 

2. Upgrade to Target Specific Audiences with Scheduling

Not only does digital signage prompt visitors to interact, but it also delivers catered messages to visitors at different times of day. Currently many companies put up posters, flyers, and other temporary signage to try to engage with users. This often leads to a wall full of unprofessional advertising and announcements that never truly reach the end user. Moreover this method does not have a targeted customer experience, meaning every customer has the same user journey.

In contrast some companies have switched to putting advertisements on a TV for information to scroll through. While these displays might be more engaging, they still do not lead to a meaningful user experience. Maintaining these displays can also be a hassle, as many lack the option for remote management. Both current options waste time, money, and resources and do not get the correct message to the right person.

                 OLD                                          NEW

Target Audience and Scheduling        Target Audience with Scheduling on Digital Signage

With digital signage, content can easily be updated, and multiple presentations can be created. This means that content can be scheduled to play on displays at different times of the day, week, month, or year. Unlike their paper counterparts, this allows you to target specific audiences, leading to a better return on investment. Maintaining digital signage content is also quite easy. Updates can be easily made, and schedules can be put together months in advance. No more constant working on designing, printing, and hanging up one-off paper advertising. Simply create the content, and push it live to screens everywhere for your audience for immediate engagement.

 

3. Upgrade to Update Content Quickly

Posters, flyers, and brochures are beginning to largely be a promotional tool of the past. These temporary methods are clumsily pasted on a wall or crammed on a bulletin board where their messages will be lost. Not only is this not professional, but it is a large waste of resources and time. People constantly spend time creating new simple paper signage for events, promotions, health notices, and more.

Once designs are haphazardly put together, they all need to be printed, with whatever resources are available. Finally, every poster or flier needs to be manually hung up and taken down at each location where the announcement is needed. With content being created by a variety of people and departments, brand cohesion is often completely missing. This leads to a lot of time being put into messages that are hardly noticed and often left up past their time of relevance.

                   OLD                                             NEW

Update Content Quickly       

With digital signage it is easy to update content instantly from anywhere that has internet. Simply make the changes to your content or add a new batch of content, and then push it live. This is done without the need to visit individual locations to take down and hang up signage. No more missing the window to display time sensitive content, when updates are done with the push of a button. Additionally, making new digital content does not require any added time or money to be fed into printing and material costs. Digital signage is friendlier to the environment, and friendlier to your company’s budget.

 

4. Upgrade to Easily Promote Sales or Demo Products

Companies rely on newspaper ads, website ads, coupons, and in-store signage to inform visitors about products and upcoming sales. Sharing a demonstration of your products or services can be difficult to manage in limited space with limited resources. Unless in a cooking store, a live demonstration is often not an option, and website and paper ads cannot fill this gap. Paper signage also lacks an inviting format, often not being assertive enough, or too distracting. While these methods can be effective, they should not be the only source for visitors to interact with your organization.

                 OLD                                          NEW

Demo Products and Services       

Digital signage provides a way to bring showcases into stores rather than just having them at events or trade shows. Provide extra product information, display product showcase videos on screens, or even embed live demos. This makes explaining complex items or services simple, and gives customers an inviting learning experience. Doing this leads to higher engagement and understanding, making someone more likely to move forward with your product.

Signage software makes it is simple to create and distribute content across screens in one or many locations. Create professional sale content for customers, no more flimsy paper signage necessary. As mentioned before, easily switch digital content when new sales or promotions arrive with scheduling to cut down on paper waste.

 

5. Upgrade to Add Amazing Integrations

Many appliances are needed to show time, date, send alerts, display news feeds, and more. Having this many devices can make it difficult to maintain a productive work flow or a consistently branded environment. Ensuring that all devices are up to date and ready for customers or staff to use becomes tedious and time consuming.

Add Amazing Integrations        Add Amazing Integrations with Digital Signage

An ever growing amount of intuitive integrations and dynamic widgets make digital signage the perfect tool to replace these outdated devices. Easily add simple widgets like weather, time and date, countdowns, news feeds, QR codes, and slideshows for informative content. Alternatively add complex integrations like websites, metrics, donor lists, Google Apps, Twitter feeds, and other options for a higher level of usage.

 

6. Upgrade to Access Unlimited Use Cases

Devices such as clocks and weather radios, and promotional material such as flyers and posters often only have one use. This leads to a cluttered work atmosphere, full of devices that take time to manage and keep up to date. For example, chalkboard or manual marquee signage are a slow and cumbersome method of executing menus. Printed office directories are temporary as constant staff and room changes are made, and because of this are usually out of date. Finally cork bulletin boards are a cluttered way to display messages and often announcements are lost in the shuffle. These many different physical options and so many more need to be managed daily to truly be effective.

                     OLD                                                 NEW

        Unlimited Use Cases of Digital Signage

In the previous section, the many integrations provided with using digital signage were mentioned. These widgets and integrations make digital signage a tool that can be molded to fit any need and use case. Use digital signage in healthcare settings, government agencies, schools, retail locations, corporate offices, and other areas. Likewise digital screens can display an unlimited number of these use cases all at once.

Digital signage can include digital menus that are easily updatable from any internet connected device. Moreover menus no longer have to remain simple for ease; with digital signage custom designs are easy to make. Easily create and update office directories and clearly display them in areas with high foot traffic to give visitors current information. Lastly, display updates in one place and even give messages their own slides so they will be seen and heard. The use cases for digital signage are truly endless, and only limited by your own ideas. Here is a list we made of 50 ways to use digital signage in your business to spark some more of those ideas.

 

7. Upgrade to Create Digital Directories and Wayfinding

Physical wayfinding and directories are critical for helping visitors navigate through buildings. Despite this, they are cluttered and confusing to guests, sometimes causing more harm than good. Also these types of signage cannot be easily updated when workers and locations are added. This leads to a constant flow of new signage being ordered and created, spending lots of time and money.

While welcome desks help fill that missing step for helping visitors, they can be costly to maintain due to labor costs. Furthermore these desks require stationed workers for full efficacy, preventing them from working on other tasks around the building.

Touchscreen digital signage allows for the usage of digital wayfinding and directories on screens throughout facilities. This creates a comprehensive navigation system that can be easily updated when offices or personnel change. Guests can easily access interactive digital signage and use it to locate people, departments, and locations in the building. Digital displays pair perfectly with physical wayfinding signs by adding an extra level of direction and affirmation. These displays also free up staff who would be directing traffic. This in turn reduces social interactions which is especially important in today’s COVID-19 world.

To go one step further, QR codes, beacon technology, and Progressive Web Apps allow visitors to view maps and directories on their phones. This means that companies can share directories with guests before their visit for clarity on parking, entrances, and a more streamlined wayfinding process.

8. Upgrade for Digital Donor Recognition

Aluminum and zinc donor plaques are a thoughtful way to recognize donors, but lack the ability to be updated. Over time these plaques begin to take up a significant amount of wall space, and look outdated. Plaques lack an actionable statement for collecting future donations as well. The displays are heavy, difficult to mount, and do not truly give donors with the recognition they deserve.

                   OLD                                          NEW

Digital Donor Recognition        Donor Recognition with Digital Signage

Donor recognition with digital signage provides solutions for these problems as well leads the way for improving donor recognition. Unlike donor plaques, digital screens can display future donation opportunities, share donor stories, and promote what donations are used for. As these screens are interactive they lead to an increased visitor engagement helping encourage more donations. Digital integrations such as Google Sheets or List-Eez make showing full donor lists clean and easy. This allows for more frequent updates to be made from anywhere helping donors know that their donations are truly valued.

Displaying content on digital signage allows for content to be shared in more than one location, giving donors the recognition they deserve. Beautiful donor wall displays can be partnered with digital signage to provide an elevated branding opportunity and donor experience. All this reduces the wall space being taken up with plaques and saves money from being funneled into these cumbersome projects.

 

9. Upgrade for Unified Branding and Digital Communications

Creating posters, fliers, and even physical signage can lead to disjointed branding within companies. If your company is lucky, one team might put together all marketing materials for your location. If your company is not lucky, random members create wayfinding and posters in varying styles, leading to a lack of brand cohesion. Display boards are littered with designs, and company branding guides fall by the wayside in favor of thrown together promotional materials. This disjointed branding leads to a muddled and confusing customer experience. It is important to create a cohesive brand so customers feel heard, understand your company, and become repeat customers.

Key Benefits of Using Digital Signage In Hospitals

hospital digital signage planClear communications are the key to positive patient experiences in hospitals and healthcare practices. Immediate welcoming visual experiences are the first impression for a patient and promote a positive environment and the organization’s brand identity.  Hospital digital signage simplifies the experience.

The real challenge is – how does a hospital quickly and effectively communicate to people who arrive already feeling anxious? In today’s tech savvy world, the best way to communicate real-time information is on displays.

Digital signage and interactive displays can do a lot for improving patient experiences.  Here are some applications and benefits of hospital digital signage:

1. Digital Wayfinding – Visually Guiding Patients

Modern hospitals can be hard to navigate, especially when a patient is arriving. Despite the best efforts to lead patients simply upon arrival, patients getting lost in a hospital can cost the organization over $220,000 a year in added labor costs. Not to mention the negative patient experience.

Far from the old clipboards at the end of a patient bed, patient bedside digital signage has revolutionized patient care. It focuses patient information into real-time updates for staff. In recent years, hospitals have placed greater emphasis on patient-centered care and shared decision-making, thus improving the patient experience and reducing readmissions.

hospital patient room tv channelHospitals can adapt one of the TV channels into a patient portal. It gives every room a personal portal with care team info, vital signs and appointments.

Content can include movies, exercise classes, information or livestream events. Engaging residents with content that keeps them active and mentally stimulated.

3. Digital Waiting Room – Reducing Waiting Room Anxiety

Waiting is not something anyone wants to do, but when you are not feeling well, time becomes more critical. Digital signage in waiting rooms can reduce the anxiety of waiting. Announcing wait times or where a patient is in surgery helps reduce the stress on waiting family members. It also removes the extra burden on staff to keep family members informed of progress. hospital waiting room digital signage information

Check-in kiosks have become a part of most modern healthcare clinics. It removes many of the direct contacts with staff, which is significant during COVID-19 pandemic, and gets the patient to care quicker.

Additionally, clinic or hospital marketing information can connect visitors to the other services and outreach that the practices provide. Promoting the foundation and branding of each facility. While it’s not a replacement for one-to-one conversations with caregivers, well-prepared on-screen content can cover common questions and allow doctor-patient visits to get to the specifics more quickly.

4. Information Signage – Communications in Real-time

The most common form of hospital digital signage is the informational displays. Typically located in entrances and public spaces, digital signage easily engages patients and visitors with events, safety announcements and wellness awareness tips.

Healthcare digital signage was an effective and safe solution. With Google Translate, Any language can be translated instantly for barrier-free visitor communications for everyone.

5. Digital Donor Recognition – Celebrate Donors and Raise Funds

In a time when fundraising dollars are being spread across so many non-profits, it’s important that hospitals reach beyond the traditional local donors. Hospitals can expand their donor outreach with digital donor walls. Through the Arreya PWA widget, digital content can be shared with potential donors who never visit the hospital. Beyond the monitor on a wall, Arreya content channels can be viewed on tablets and phones anywhere.
