In today’s ever-growing, ever-changing, and increasingly fast-paced professional world, it goes without saying that the internal communication of information can oftentimes become lost. The days of office spaces using traditional paper or cardboard signs to welcome visitors, pin important notices and company bulletins, and even use as directions in the convoluted labyrinthine halls of corporate buildings are long gone.
Rather than relying on these outdated methods, the implementation of digital signage has been on the rise in recent years across many contemporary office spaces the world over. When both implemented properly and placed around office spaces strategically, digital signage has been shown to provide an engaging and interactive way for office workers and visitors alike to instantly access vital company information while also boosting productivity, collaboration, and even brand identity.
As a result, it’s no surprise that an increasing number of companies have begun to utilize and integrate digital signage into their office spaces. One company that has helped information technology (IT) professionals and business leaders alike implement digital signage is Mvix (pronounced “em-vicks”), a full-service B2B digital signage SaaS company that specializes in producing large flat-panel display screen signs, digital LED billboards, and smart signage video walls for organizations looking for solutions to create engaging and interactive communication solutions in real-time.
Founded in 2005, Mvix is headquartered in Sterling, Virginia—a region located within the Washington D.C. metro area—with support operations in California and an R&D team located in India. Their signs leverage text, images, videos, and a wide range of dynamically updatable content for real-time internal communication between office employees, managers, and company leadership.
Because digital signage is able to help foster collaboration and drive engagement among employees in virtually any office space, the benefits to end-users of the technology don’t stop at simply communicating key messaging in real-time. Along with the ability to post, change, and share data-driven content such as weather and news updates or even a company’s posts to social media, implementing digital signage in the workplace also provides a way for organizations to improve upon their internal company culture and boost overall morale.
For instance, signage software can be placed within break rooms or other areas of the office to display inspirational or motivational quotes, company videos, and promote new initiatives for employees. Similarly, signage software placed in lobbies, bathrooms, or warehouses can alert employees to upcoming events, planned maintenance reminders and safety measures, or changes to internal health insurance plans.
In today’s hyper-digital world, strategically placed digital signage can offer a means of communicating two crucial aspects of business operations to employees: the “what” and the “why.” Even though employees do not always need to be kept updated with the entire list of intricacies of their employer’s internal workings, being able to alert all employees across the entire organization at the same time and in the same way is extremely important in keeping employees alert and aware as to what is happening in their office environment (and their company as a whole) and why those events, changes, updates, and more are happening to begin with.
Another key benefit of digital signage software in the workplace is its ability to save time and resources. Instead of having to print out dozens of physical copies of the same announcement and place them throughout the office, employees can now consume that same message in a faster and more cost-effective way. Because digital signage doesn’t rely on physical assets for communication, its implementation is simultaneously more efficient and sustainable for employees and employers alike.
What sets Mvix aside as a true disruptor, compared to other B2B and SaaS digital signage companies in their industry, is that they are currently the only digital signage company that provides a cloud-software solution at a one-time cost option for their clients. For example, Mvix customers can purchase a $299 player with cloud software and no ongoing fees or subscriptions. This is in stark contrast to many other digital signage companies which can charge clients upwards of $10-$30 per player, per month as subscription fees for their software.
In this way, Mvix has established itself as one of the most affordable and comprehensive enterprise-grade digital signage solutions on the market today. With the inclusion of content integrations for various apps and platforms, the ability to support hundreds of screens with no limit on the number of users or amount of cloud storage per account, as well as an incredibly responsive post-sales support program, it’s no wonder that Mvix has grown to become one of the leading producers of smart digital signage software in the world today.
