Today we’re highlighting a family of three new templates. There is nothing stopping you from using any one of them independently but they’ve been designed to be used in sequence. You can think of these templates as providing a beginning, middle, and end to a narrative or story you’d like to tell. If you’re from a marketing background you’ll recognize how these templates lend themselves nicely to the age old advertising principles of Catch, Inform, and Action (or Activate).
Three new templates have been added to the free template library that comes standard with every ScreenScape subscription. These templates use the trendy style of flat design to convey a message that is simple yet professional. Along with this latest template release we have added a suite of illustrations to the ScreenScape-curated Asset Library. As stock illustrations, these files can be imported to your asset library and then used in any template. This is yet another example of how ScreenScape makes it easy for anyone to create high-quality digital signage content without breaking the bank and without working for hours on it.
The spread of Covid-19 across the world is causing havoc for retail businesses and for any institution that caters to the public. As a greener, more hygienic alternative to print, digital signage is helping those institutions that remain open to present vital health & safety information in a touchless manner that prevents the spread of disease. For those businesses that are disrupted it won’t be long before travel bans are lifted and people start returning to normal habits like eating out, going to the gym and shopping at retail. If you’re one of these businesses digital signage is a must have tool to reassure the public and kick-start your return to business in what is bound to be a new and modern and hyper health-conscious era. To help in that effort we are adding Covid-19-inspired templates that can be used to educate and inform your customers on the precautions that have been taken to ensure your facility is both clean and safe. These templates are entirely free to ScreenScape users. Check back often as we will be adding these templates to the template library periodically.
Our Google Sheets App is a powerful tool that connects a Google Sheet, as a data source, to a ScreenScape template which then formats and displays that data on a big screen. The Sheets app is powerful because it allows you to keep your digital signage up to date, even as the data in the underlying Sheet changes. Sheets is a pretty powerful tool in its own right and so by connecting your digital signage to a Google Sheet as a data source you can really supercharge your digital signage while automating the flow of data from an underlying data source to a large format display.
