Providing information is an important aspect of the service industry. Keeping customers up to date with the latest news and information about the service prevents dissatisfaction and complaints.
Nowhere is this more obvious than in the transport industry, when delays and cancellations of service can affect people’s days, making them late for work, meetings and appointments.
It’s no surprise then that the transport industry were one of the earliest implementers of information screens, using it to display news of impending cancellations and delays.
Using screens for this purpose has many advantages for providing information. Firstly, networking screens together can relay information across entire stations or depots at the same time. Secondly, modern technology enables uploading of information almost instantly, and in real time, keeping customers informed with up to the minute messages.
The transport sector isn’t the only industry that can receive benefits from using information screens and with falling cost of LCDs and plasma displays, more and more businesses and organizations are using them to disseminate important information.
Information Screens in Education
Many schools, colleges and universities are implanting information screens as a form of communication. These digital signage displays make the traditional noticeboard redundant and enables communication across large campuses.
In recent years, since several high profile campus shootings in America, more and more education establishments are using outdoor screens to enable warning and emergency messaging too.
Information Screens in Finance
In an industry where millions can be gained or lost in a matter of moments, the finance sector deploys information screens to allow customers to keep abreast of changing share prices and other information. From banks to trading houses, the real time advantages of using information screens enable people to keep abreast of the latest financial news.
Information Screens in Leisure
Theme parks, zoos, aquariums and museums utilize information screens in a number of ways. From providing pricing and queue times, to educating visitors about the attractions, information screens provide an ideal way to ensure visitors are kept happy and informed.
Information Screens in Worship
Even churches, mosques, synagogues and temples are utilizing screens as a form of communicating with parishioners. With religious centers at the heart of many communities, providing all sorts of facilities alongside worship, from childcare to community education, informing the community is an essential aspect to the modern house of worship.
