The benefits of touchscreen directories

Switching to touchscreen directories has a number of benefits for your school. Perhaps one of the biggest draws is the ability to switch out information as it happens. Unlike traditional directories that often require designing, printing, and manually hanging new or updated information, digital building directories allow remote updates to one simple database, which can then be pushed to one or even multiple displays at any time with the click of a button. This comes in remarkably handy  for everything from staff or room changes, amended contact information, modification to upcoming events, or even just broadcasting the day’s important announcements.

Additional bonuses include:

  • Fully customizable screen design and content
  • Increased accessibility for students and staff with disabilities
  • Support for multiple languages
  • Faster access to necessary information
  • Reduced staffing needs
  • Privacy and security
  • Around-the-clock availability
