Digital signage has become popular over the years as a form of interactive marketing strategy, and has replaced the traditional paper-based brochures, flyers, and menu cards. Google has been active in this digital signage arena for the past two years. The company has dedicated efforts to design digital signage technology for business development, product, and channel management.
Chrome Sign Builder is one such result of these efforts, and has been designed by Google as a digital signage utility to allow users to create schedules and make your content visible across multiple chrome devices managed on the network. Google Chrome Sign Builder has been in the market for some time, but it is an amazing low cost digital signage solution for small businesses and schools which make more use of the Chrome Sign Builder utility.
The Google Chrome Sign Builder app is free and can be downloaded from the Chrome Web Store. You can use any chrome device and a big display screen to create board messages, edit content and display important information for users and customers using the Chrome Sign Builder application. In schools, Google Chrome Digital Signage is typically used for school notices, cafeteria menus and important announcements about classes or schedule changes.
Chrome Sign Builder is easy to use, and can be used to display web content such as graphical images, YouTube videos, and playlists or Google presentations which can be edited by anyone who can access or permission to make changes to those presentations. For low cost solutions, it is better to work with a small or less costly display. The 65 inch TV screen is good for large rooms and can be seen from a distance. It is not very expensive and good for a small to medium sized business.
Another option is to use Chromebit instead of Chomebox as a display for Google Chrome Digital Signage. Chromebit is less expensive and works well for schools or similar organizations who have a limited budget for such implementations. One thing to keep in mind is to never have a blank screen when using digital signage as it creates a negative user experience. Chrome Digital Signage offers you the option to create a default sign or message that can be displayed when no other content is scheduled for that time.
The Chrome Digital Signage application is controlled through an Admin panel. It also has a schedule app which created a text file with the schedule and resources that you define, and then uploads it through the admin panel to push it to the Chromebox or the device that you have connected. It is quick and easy to install, and can be customized without much effort.
Google Chrome Sign Builder also lets you preview the content that you have created before uploading and displaying it to the intended users. You can also use the admin console to add the devices that are part of your organization, and provide access only to users who are allowed to change the schedule or displayed content.
