Digital Signage Solution
Cynthia Spencer Hospice provides specialist palliative care services for South Northamptonshire. They offer specialist physical, psychological, social and spiritual care to those with life limiting illnesses with a focus on quality of life and respecting the uniqueness of each person.
The requirement was for a Digital Signage Solution to be installed in three Primary areas across the site to relay information to Visitors.
The Hospice needed a system that could effectively relay information to Visitors and Staff and also to publicise Fundraising events as the facility is heavily dependent on donations to meet running costs.
Adaptive IT's Solution
After initial site survey and consultation with key stakeholders optimum positioning of the displays was agreed in the three areas required in the Coffee Shop, Reception and Day Hospice.
The functionality and usage requirements were also discussed at length to find the best fit available between the customer expectations and systems available.
The award-winning BrightSign Digital Signage system was selected for both its excellence in providing a cutting edge signage platform and its ease of use and management by end users. Content could be updated by staff from a remote position in their office quickly and immediately allowing them to devote more time to their other duties. Custom content such as BBC News 24 RSS feeds, video, weather reports and NHS messages could be pulled together to create a very dynamic and visually impressive end result.
The signage system was teamed with 43″ Commercial grade LED screens from Phillips. With stylish design, slim bezel and Full HD quality, these gave the perfect way to showcase the content with the assurance and peace of mind of a commercial performance.
All works were installed in a live environment and any disruption was kept to an absolute minimum. Adaptive have a great pedigree in performing intrusive works in this manner, especially in a Healthcare environment.
The staff have been left with confidence as to how they will be able to manage the system going forward and to make any modifications to the content as required. Our Technical staff are always on hand via telephone or email to help field any queries however big or small and to manage the warranties of the installed hardware.
Yet again it has been great working with the team at Cynthia Spencer and Northamptonshire Healthcare Foundation Trust to deliver a project that is not only aesthetically pleasing to visitors and residents but is of great benefit to them and the Hospice.
