Enplug, a leading cloud-based digital signage software provider, today announced new apps that make it easier than ever for businesses and organizations to use their digital signage networks to mark holidays and other special events. The new Countdown App enables organizations to count down to or count up from date-related milestones, while the Holidays App automates the process of celebrating holidays in the workplace. Both apps are available today for free on Enplug’s App Market.
“Whether used for internal employee communications or for customer-facing marketing purposes, digital signage is a powerful visual tool,” said Nanxi Liu, CEO of Enplug. “Our new Apps help users elevate their digital signage networks even further by giving them an easy, intuitive way to build excitement around holidays and other significant events.”
Countdown timers are an effective way to build employee and customer engagement – whether counting down to a future event, or counting up from a past event. Prominently displaying these timers is a great way to build interest, generate excitement or create a sense of urgency for deadlines, events and other milestones.
Using timers on prominently located screens helps increase participation and inspire engagement around important events. Whether motivating individuals in the final days of a fundraising drive, keeping important employee deadlines top-of-mind, building anticipation for product releases or counting down to the first day of a new school semester, a countdown clock is a powerful visual reminder of the immediacy of your message.
Users can choose from dozens of professionally designed templates, with layout options in both portrait and landscape screen orientation. Template colors, fonts and images can all be customized to ensure brand consistency across the entire signage network, and queuing up a tailored list of milestones is as simple as uploading a spreadsheet of dates with custom triggers to ensure that updates are made automatically.
You’ll never miss another holiday with Enplug’s new Holidays App. An extensive library of artfully designed templates for more than 30 commonly celebrated holidays makes it easy to “set and forget” a full calendar of holidays, creating custom triggers to ensure holiday content displays on time, every time. Pre-defined color palettes, imagery and messages ensure the appropriate mood is created for each holiday, with the ability to further customize various elements to suit corporate branding and HR guidelines.
Featuring holidays in the workplace or in a customer-facing business is an important opportunity to build a shared sense of celebration to increase employee satisfaction and even incite customers to shop more generously. But scheduling holiday content can be challenging, especially when a particular holiday falls on a weekend or on a company holiday. Enplug’s new Holidays App empowers HR managers and marketers to take full advantage of these seasonal events, with the peace of mind that all holidays will be celebrated as intended for maximum impact.
Celebrating holidays in retail settings can be especially effective. Each December as shoppers are inundated with stimuli vying for their attention, static signage is easily lost in the holiday shuffle, and digital signage is one of the few ways to grab and keep customers’ attention. Enplug’s new Holidays App enables retailers to take full advantage of the digital medium, using eye-catching dynamic signage to put shoppers in the holiday mood, creating a sense of urgency to drive additional sales.
