4 Tips & Tools for “Stay Safe” Communications on Your Digital Directory

Author TouchSource

Tools for Safety Communications This Summer

The Big Restart has begun. Most of us are deep into execution of re-opening offices, spaces, retail centers and more. As we work to welcome everyone back into public spaces, there’s a scramble to provide public health and safety messaging among other operational re-opening plans. To help you communicate well, we’ve assembled the latest:

  • messaging from the CDC on cleaning spaces
  • guidance on cleaning digital displays and directories
  • news on contactless digital solution
  • free digital safety posters that you can use on your directories

Keeping Things Clean

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has important information on the current situation including recommended cleaning procedures for re-opening. 

1. Reopening Guidance for Cleaning and Disinfecting Public Spaces, Workplaces, Businesses, Schools, and Homes

The CDC is the best source for current guidance on keeping surfaces and spaces clean. Information is regularly updated, so we recommend checking the site frequently. In addition to having cleaning procedures in place, you’ll want to tell visitors and tenants about them. People are comforted to know that you’ve got their health at the top of your agenda. So, be sure to communicate public health messages and notices on what you’re doing. An easy way to do that is to add messaging into your TouchSource display. See below for 7 Stay Safe This Summer posters that you can load into your directory.

2. Keeping Your Digital Building Directories Clean and Disinfected

One of our most popular blogs shares information on how to keep your touch screens clean. Special care must be taken to protect your displays—e.g. never directly spray any screen with a cleaning solution. Only use recommended cleaning solutions and products. Here are the cleaning tips and products we recommend for your TouchSource directory and signage.

Go Contactless 

3. Deliver relevant and interactive information to visitors’ mobile devices

We see significant interest in contactless delivery of information as people return to work, play and daily life. As buildings re-open, new measures are needed to communicate regular information—directories, maps, amenities and marketing. Now, everyone also needs to communicate about safety, space density and public health notices.

That’s why TouchSource introduced a new Contactless Suite of solutions for the new normal including: contactless visitor management, shift management solutions for production facilities, social distancing workspace schedule boards, live video remote monitoring of lobbies and spaces from your directory, camera-based density analytics for social distance monitoring, contactless messaging boards, and contactless retail solutions. Learn how we can help you with contactless and interactive messaging, directories and maps that scan to a mobile device.

4. How TouchSource Customers Can Communicate Safety Notices

Deliver enhanced safety and employee services for new workplace and public space norms at the click of a button. Start with architecturally finished digital signage platforms that complement your lobby or public space while being highly visible from a distance. Display mandatory public health and safety information throughout your building on your digital signage. Publish messages in multiple languages and at whatever frequency you choose—daily, weekly or any interval. Better yet, capture compliance acknowledgment via visitor and tenant mobile devices. Update messages easily to keep in compliance by logging into the TouchSource customer portal and self-managing new content updates.

To get you started, we’re releasing new Stay Safe this Summer posters that you can display on your TouchSource directory. Current customers can log into the TouchSource Customer Portal and upload these posters via the Image Upload functionality available for the Slideshow capability in your account. You can download the whole series with this Zip file, or copy the images below to your laptop. Have your own posters and messages to display? Great! Use the Image Upload functionality to keep the messaging on your display current. If you need to add Slideshow capability to your static directory or want us to manage your content for you, call us for options.

We hope these help you re-open safely. Let us know if we can assist you in any way.
