Cloud-Based Digital Signage vs USB Update Digital Menu Board

With an increase in the number of businesses out there, there is a need to give yours a cutting edge, and that is why everyone is taking advantage of the latest technology and investing vigorously in it. From hospitals to restaurants, everyone has jumped on the digital trend that came with the massive explosion of computers coupled with business psychologist’s findings that people are more appealed to by pictures than mere words. Hence, the focus changed from the average LED signage that displays business name and services offered to the more professional and elitist digital menu board.

With its ability to convey High Definition Videos, text and even pictures, the digital menu board became an instant hit with small and medium scale businesses that hope to bring customers in based on the strength of visual appeal. The digital menu board can also be used to pass relevant information across to customers which include a change in closing or opening time, a sales discount or promotion, an unavailable stock or a recently available stock.

Meanwhile, digital menu boards are more than just advertising tools; they could become the very soul of your business. With all the good this technology can do for your business, it possesses one unique disadvantage only. Contents on the digital menu board can only be updated via USB technology, and not only is this method slightly old-school, it requires you to stay on site every single moment your content needs a change or an update. Hence, you will need to finish up your designs or edit your videos and then save the files to a USB flash which you then take to the digital menu board to upload. This process can be nerve-wracking, and that is why we have decided to save you that stress.

What if you can have all of your designs in one place without having to worry about the USB stick running out of space or making the daily round of trips to the digital menu board just to update content?  Yes, that dream is possible. With the latest Cloud-based digital signage technology, you need not worry about anything. All of your videos, text and pictures are stored in one secured location, and you can access them from wherever you are and broadcast to your digital signage board, doesn’t that sound like fun? I’m sure it does.

Let’s take a quick look at why you should upgrade to a cloud-based Digital signage system.


Running a small restaurant owner and being a chef can be tedious at times, how about when you bring in the daily jog across the streets to upload content on the Digital board? Now that’s outright tiresome. A cloud-based signage system saves you that time you need to do extra chores, and with your tablet with you, it does not matter where you were when the content was uploaded. Whether it was while you were pushing your cart around the shopping mall floor or while you were waiting in the queue to see the doctor, it does not matter, all that matter is that your contents were uploaded and customers can see it.

Do you run a chain of restaurants or retail stores in different areas offering slightly different services or selling various items, you need not worry about making frantic calls to a worker in that branch to change the message on the digital board, you can do that yourself wherever you are. You can also decide to schedule posts for a particular time in a specific location, and at that particular time, the content finds their way to the board. No hassles, no delay, now that is what I define as time-saving. 

Keep things Private

Are you worried about an employee getting snatched by a close competitor, or you are scared some advertising strategies may be pilfered off your USB flash drive? With a cloud-based digital signage system, you need have no fear. You can keep everything private, and in a secured location.
