Frequently Asked Questions
First, start with the end in mind. Think holistically about the entire campus and all who visit it. What is your main objective? Do you want to increase engagement with staff and clients? Increase brand awareness? Help visitors navigate your facility via wayfinding signage? Pinpoint your goal(s), then consider:
- Experience – How your employees and customers interact with your solution is important. We will help you create a hardware/software combination that engages your audience.
- Scalability – Do you have multiple locations or multiple areas within your building to consider? Do you plan to expand? You will want to choose a content management system that can scale to your needs.
- Support – For the most seamless experience, choose a company that offers end-to-end support, from design through programming, integration and post-installation training and support. At Bluum Technology, this starts with a consultation—identifying your objective and recommending the solution that best fits your needs.
- Budget – Budget for the initial project and plan ahead for hardware/software updates. The average hardware lifecycle is five years, but that’s increasing with newer technology. You may want lease your hardware using a Technology-as-a-Service (TaaS) plan. Also, invest in a “content champion” to keep content fresh and current on any digital signage you deploy.
- Timeline – Be realistic on your timeline, especially on complex, large-scale campus projects. Putting together a thoughtful solution that’s tailored to your needs takes time, as does software development and hardware deployment.
- Team – Put together a well-rounded project team. It may include IT staff, content administrators, HR leaders, users, facilities managers or other stakeholders. We collaborate with your team to ensure the hardware/software in your campus solution delivers the best experience for your audience.
The best way to accomplish this is to design the space for the intended purpose. If a room is meant to support remote participants, having the proper furniture incorporated in the proper orientation to the display and camera will make the face-to-face interaction happen naturally. Utilizing the correct types of microphones and speaker placement for the space will ensure that all can be heard. Don’t overlook the importance of having a quality solution at the remote end as well. Proper microphones and audio playback are just as important there. Bluum Technology will help you incorporate the right solution so that you and your team can focus on the work you do, not on the technology.
There are hundreds of content management systems (CMS) to choose from. We will help you determine which one best suits your needs. Some CMS automatically update and display information pulled from other sources such as calendar feeds, sales dashboards or emergency alert notification systems. Many CMS provide templates and content libraries that can be used for fast, efficient updates. In addition to finding the right solution for you, we’ll ensure your team is trained to update information with confidence. Our in-house creative team can also design content for your displays that are on-brand and help you achieve your goals.
There are two components to keep in mind: physical security and network (software) security. If your site requires physical security you can take measures to secure servers, media players, displays and other equipment to prevent theft. Network security is a priority for every deployment. Our team can provide you with solutions that support your secure environment. We work with software partners that offer on-premises, off-premises and cloud-based solutions to keep your hardware and network safe.
