Communicating with staff in a dispatch environment can be difficult as warehouse staff typically have limited or no access to company emails. A solution that solves this issue is digital signage technology, which provides employers with the tools to communicate to a large staff audience at a cost-effective price.
Digital signage delivers many other advantages to an employer in addition to mass scale display and economic pricing. For example, digital signage is a solution that can overcome language, cultural and educational barriers by placing an emphasis on the multimedia formats such as videos and images in the display content.
In fact, the old adage by Fred R. Barnard in 1927, that ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ has never been more accurate than in digital signage in the 21st century and has proven so successful in the dispatch area that employers use it for conveying key internal data in addition to external information.
Recognising the need for a simple solution that highlights imagery over text, UK manufacturer Sedao Digital Signage developed an easy to use platform that has design templates highlighting imagery zones. Such templates are used for:
Safety – displaying posters and videos of safety procedures to minimise risk of injury or accidents in the workplace.
Morale – promoting comradery and teamwork through staff recognition, introductions (new staff) and KPI achievements improves staff morale.
Training – screening training videos to expand staff knowledge of activities.
Opportunities – notifying staff of new opportunities to promote employ from within culture.
External - live traffic reports which assist dispatch drivers on routes.
Emergency – instant messaging for fire drills, evacuation practices etc.
With so many positive uses, our corporate digital signage solutions offer the ideal technology to improve communications within the dispatch environment.
