Digital Signage Can Keep Non-Desk Workers Informed

According to the Harvard Business Review, employees who feel informed about current business initiatives and activities make for better and more loyal workers. More than 1/3rd US employees don’t understand why changes are happening in their company, which leads to a decrease in employee engagement.

People perform better when they know their work is valued and their efforts contribute to the overall success of the organization. From a management perspective, sharing information is a key part of establishing buy-in with your team, however, it isn’t always easy. Three out of Four employees are non-desk workers, and in manufacturing or logistics organizations, many employees do not have regular access to computers. This makes real-time communications an even greater challenge. However, implementing a digital signage solution can help bridge this gap.

Toshiba digital signage can be used across your facility to keep your non-desk employees on task and informed (85% OF THESE WORKERS feel the communication they receive on the job isn’t enough). On the warehouse floor, digital signage can be integrated with any number of back end systems to provide real-time information such as order status, daily quota information, supply chain updates, shipping and receiving data, as well as longer-term cumulative information and performance analytics.

In high-traffic common areas, such as entrances and break rooms, digital signage can deliver important business updates, HR communications, training classes, employee recognition, and even display approved social media feeds.

Not keeping all employees informed can end up costing a company a lot of money. In addition to the lack of engagement leading to lower productivity, the inability to relay new compliance regulations to staff can cost on average around $14.82 million annually.

Thankfully, digital signage solutions are easier than ever to implement, and modern content management systems make it simple to upload and publish your content to any location across your organization. So, if you are wondering how digital signage can impact your team, we’re here to help you get started. From site surveys to installation, to content development, our team can help keep your non-desk workforce stay productive and keep them informed about important company initiatives.

Three Ways Hospitality Businesses Can Elevate Their Customer Experience with Toshiba

As the hospitality industry continues to grow, so does the competition—and customer expectations. These days, customers have more choices and convenient ways to research those choices. Whether it’s finding the best slice of pizza or a boutique hotel with the friendliest staff, sorting and decision-making is easy with a few swipes on a mobile device.

Customers are turning to review sites in droves. With 96% considering reviews when booking a hotel and 94% being influenced by online restaurant reviews, it is critical for hospitality businesses to cultivate the customer experience to keep positive reviews coming.

With the right equipment, your staff can focus on the customer. Here are a few examples where IT selection directly impacts the customer experience:


Without this device functioning properly, you can’t take orders, customer wait times increase, and you risk losing business when customers voice their frustrations on social media and review sites.

Ease-of-use is just as critical as reliability. With a staff turnover rate of nearly 75%, hospitality workers are often young, seasonal and have limited training. Fortunately, the TOSHIBA HSP POINT-OF-SALE RECEIPT PRINTER SERIES is hospitality-grade, which means they are durable, efficient, easy-to-use and deliver high print quality.

The HSP Series was built specifically to meet the needs of the most demanding hospitality-based environments. The splash-resistant design is perfect for bar, kitchen, and outdoor environments. And, swapping out receipt paper during a busy rush is effortless because of top- and front-loading options that also include anti-jam technology.

In a world where every customer interaction is under the microscope with a domino-like effect, the Toshiba HSP Series ensures an optimal experience.


Interactive menus, ordering, and communication . . .  It’s no surprise to hospitality business owners that customers desire a personalized and efficient experience. Digital menu boards result in 10 times more customer eye contact than static menus. With TOSHIBA DIGITAL DISPLAYS, you can create tailored messaging that ties into your interactive menus.

Digital Signage for Churches

A house of worship is so much more than a building: It is a community bustling with ministry, youth activities, social clubs and so much more. Weekend services, no doubt, draw the largest congregation, but most campuses play host to activities and events throughout the week.

When you account for classroom study, prayer groups, music programs, intermural sports, senior clubs, just to name a few, many houses of worship are home to thousands of events each year. But with so many opportunities, it is almost impossible, even for frequent visitors, to comprehend the beehive of activity.

Growing and maintaining community involvement is a lot of work. To make it successful, a comprehensive communication plan is imperative—digital signage should be part of this plan.

Sure, digital signage is not the single answer to your communication strategy. Sunday announcements, websites, social media, and printed bulletins (by the way, Toshiba can help you here, too) all play a role. However, digital signage is certainly the most versatile tool available for spreading information across your campus. From large to small, digital signage can deliver messages to your guests at any point in their journey:

  • Large outdoor LED signage to greet passing motorists
  • Indoor LED or multi-panel video walls in larger public spaces to welcome guests and for tone setting
  • LCD panels to deliver messaging in any high traffic environment
  • Interactive touch screen kiosks to explore detailed information
  • Information boards placed outside of any room to display event details

Beyond the hardware, digital signage as a platform allows you to deliver beautifully designed content that can be changed at any time. It can be scheduled in advance or immediately on demand. So the video content you’ve created for “Aester Sunday” can planned weeks in advance, but correcting the typo to correctly read “Easter Sunday” can be done on the spot. No tearing down posters or reprinting.

As a platform to communicate to a mass audience, there is really no better choice. But what information should you communicate? The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. Here are a few ideas to start with:

Welcoming new members or staff to the congregation

  • Ministry news
  • Weekly prayer list
  • Sunday service schedule
  • Inspirational quotes
  • Daily event schedule
  • Upcoming special event promos
  • Video or photo highlights from previous events
  • Group or club opportunities
  • Social media

There is so much opportunity to boost the visitor experience and to keep the community engaged that the potential of digital signage cannot be overlooked. At Toshiba, we are happy to serve as your trusted digital signage advisor. From hardware to software, and from content creation to data integration, we are more than happy to help you each step along the way.
