It isn’t always an easy decision to go digital with your signage. The initial cost might be high for your business, or maybe you just aren’t sure it’s right for you. When evaluating your options, and weighing the pros and cons of various signage solutions, there are a few things you should look for. A good manufacturer and distributor should offer:

 

Technical Support

Figuring out how to successfully set up and manage your signage is crucial to achieving its full potential. This may come more naturally to some people than others, but your sign should always come with some form of troubleshooting and/or technical support.

Content Creation Services

As well as knowing how your sign and software works, it’s also crucial to have well-designed and planned content displayed on the sign. Some people choose to manage their advertising campaigns on their own, creating their own branded content. Others choose to let their sign distributor or manufacturer run the campaigns for them, allowing the business owner to focus on other necessary tasks. Whatever you feel is right for you, it’s always important to have the content support option in case you find yourself in over your head.

Warranties

We all know that with new technology, sometimes things just don’t work the way they are supposed to. The best manufacturers take careful precautions to build their signage with high-quality parts that help ensure the best experience possible, but sometimes parts just fail. In these cases, it’s important to have a warranty to address any issues that may come up, either right away or a few years down the road. Time can take a toll on electronics, especially when exposed to weather. For these reasons, make sure to pick a signage solution that offers at least a multiple-year-long comprehensive warranty. An even better signage solution will offer you on-site parts replacement!

Severe Weather/Vandalism Protection

Forces of nature or the actions of others cannot be predicted or stopped. Because of this, many companies offer their customers some type of lighting and vandalism protection that adds to your already-held insurance. This support usually comes in the form of reimbursement towards your insurance deductible.
