Touchscreen Monitors Are Naturally Intuitive for Interactive Applications
TAGS: Business Collaboration | Collaborative Learning | Digital Signage | Digital Wayfinding | Interactive Display
Of course, we love touchscreens. We spend a good part of our day on them on smartphones and tablets. And touchscreens are seemingly also invading our car infotainment systems too because we are so used to using them in other contexts. Just about everyone has something with a touchscreen – a smartphone, tablet, or other devices, and in many school districts in Texas, kids are getting iPads and tablets as early as the third grade. Even for older people not well-steeped in technology, a well-designed touch interface can be easy to figure out.
In the past, we've discussed the benefits of touchscreen monitors and interfaces for business collaboration. While there are clear benefits for business applications, there are other interactive applications where you want the user to have zero learning curve.
This month, we’d like to recap why touchscreen monitors are excellent for interactive applications in Dallas and some different solutions where you can employ them.
Use Digital Displays for Effective Communication

Keeping a workforce engaged, happy, and productive is perhaps the most critical challenge in business. Many companies say that their best assets are their people, and in reality, it does come down to that. Any company in any industry with unhappy and unmotivated personnel is going to underperform, no matter how strong its other assets are.
Of course, it takes many things to keep employees engaged. Providing meaningful work, realistic objectives, a suitable physical environment, pay, benefits, recognition, and a host of other factors all play into motivation. Effective communication, as it is in so many endeavors, is also a critical factor.
Creating A Menu Is Easier Than You Think

We have discussed before the benefits of menu boards for different types of restaurants. Digital technology offers obvious advantages over paper and regular signage, as it’s much easier to update quickly and to integrate digital information with other systems in your restaurant.
But you might be thinking that you have to learn some complicated new tools for this new digital menu board technology. Don’t you have enough to worry about running your fast-casual concept in Frisco’s Legacy West Hall? Do not fear, just as when the original personal computer came out in the 1980’s and revolutionized business, easy to use software solutions quickly emerged that regular people could use. The spreadsheet comes to mind, and we’re reasonably sure you use that software to analyze your business metrics. Similarly, specific software solutions have evolved for digital signage like menu boards that make creating a menu at a taco concept at Frisco’s Star almost as easy as using a smartphone app.

The Modern Way to Navigate Anywhere

Have you ever driven into the University of Texas at Dallas, parked, and had no idea how to get to a building? Have you ever gotten frustrated looking for the restaurant at Richardson’s City Line where you were supposed to meet your friend for lunch 10 minutes ago?
While we have our smartphones with mapping apps to help us navigate to places, navigating at large places – like college campuses, retail malls and shopping centers, and airports, stadiums and entertainment venues – is often not that easy. But there is technology today that can change all that. Rather than just using static signage, today’s commercial audio video systems let venues simplify navigation – making it interactive, engaging, and offering commercial possibilities too.
This new technology is called Digital Wayfinding. It’s really applications that put together a variety of available tech to make navigation easier – touchscreen displays, video, audio, and Internet-connected software – to augment or supplant simple paper maps and confusing signage.
Let’s explore some of the benefits of applying digital wayfinding applications to commercial audio-video systems here in Richardson.
