AOpen OpenService – Solving Digital Signage hassles3 min read
OpenService, your end-to-end digital signage solution:
OpenService, an alliance of hardware, software and content creation partners, is seeking to tackle the challenges and hassles of digital signage deployments. Most small and medium sized businesses that are deploying digital signage these days do not really know what they are getting into beyond the obvious capital expenditure of buying a display, a media player and a software package. Many deployments of digital signage solutions often revert to displays being used to show the weather channel or a news channel, without any brand messaging or digital signage-specific content. After a while the business that spent a ton of money on their digital signage deployments just gave up on trying keeping fresh, relevant content playing on the displays.
“Basically what we’re trying to do is take that pain away from the customer,” said Vernon Slack, Director of Business Development for AOpen America. “The reality is that most people don’t really understand what they have to deal with to get a digital signage solution in place and keep it maintained and running. What we’re saying is we’ll outsource that for you, we’ll do it for you.“
“The bigger issues for people installing digital signage have nothing to do with the capital expenditure,” said Slack. “Eighty percent of the total costs of ownership on those devices really are the operational costs, which are maintaining the system and the content creation.”
Now end-users can think of digital signage like they would a new smart phone. They can just pay a monthly fee and use it, without worrying about how it works. Instead of shopping around for all the components necessary for a comprehensive and full-spectrum digital signage solution and new digital signage, end-users can go to one provider and get everything in one place.
