Now More Than Ever, Digital Signage is a Critical Platform for Sharing Health and Safety Information
April 2, 2020 – Los Angeles, CA – Enplug, a leading cloud-based digital signage software provider, is making new content and resources available to help its customers navigate challenges faced by employers and employees in response to COVID-19. The corporate world changed almost overnight as non-essential businesses transitioned rapidly to a distributed, work-from-home personnel model, while businesses in healthcare, grocery, pharmacy, manufacturing and other essential industries adapted to new hygiene and distancing requirements in the workplace. Enplug’s digital signage platform is instrumental in both scenarios, managing remote workforces and stepping up internal communications within essential businesses.
“A company’s AV infrastructure can and should play a pivotal role in crisis management,” said Enplug CEO Nanxi Liu. “When it became clear that COVID-19 would disrupt business as usual for our customers, we moved quickly to generate easily deployable content to ease the burden on organizations as they manage through these challenging times.”
To help employers manage through these rapid workplace transitions, Enplug responded with powerful tools to help businesses and other institutions navigate this new workplace reality. Following are COVID-19 resources currently available to Enplug’s customers:
- Enplug’s new COVID-19 Awareness App contains a library of free COVID-19 poster templates employers can broadcast on existing TV screens and monitors in the workplace. This new informational signage addresses proper hand washing, disposable glove use, hygiene etiquette, symptom advice, and two signs teaching proper workplace disinfecting techniques. Content can be delivered in portrait or landscape orientation, with priority scheduling to ensure COVID-19 messaging overrides default local content to keep customers aware and safe.
- The Enplug Browser Web Player with Shareable Content URLs streamlines sharing information across geographically distributed teams. Emailing a unique URL to employees enables them to automatically display content full-screen on any laptop, desktop or mobile device, with the option of split-screen viewing in certain desktop configurations. Employees can either bookmark the link, or simply keep the email handy to reference the URL when needed.
- Last week Enplug published a blog post highlighting key elements of a successful coronavirus communications plan, highlighting how a successful internal communications strategy is essential for employees to understand what to expect from company leadership, and how they can stay safe and informed.
The COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, with companies doing their best to interpret and implement guidance from federal, state and local health authorities. Now more than ever, digital signage plays a critical role in maintaining a clean and healthy workplace. The ability to remotely deploy important safety updates to an entire network of displays ensures these updates reach employees instantly for swift compliance and preserving employee health.
Virtual collaboration is surging as non-essential businesses quickly adapt to a remote workforce model. Usage of Zoom has spiked following recent work-from-home mandates, and usage of Enplug’s Zoom App – which streamlines the process of broadcasting live events and presentations to multiple screens – has risen in parallel.
Enplug’s Emergency Alert App has also been an important tool for users to quickly broadcast emergency information. Recent integration with the Alertus Mass Notification System enables Enplug’s customers in higher education, K-12, industrial, corporate, healthcare, government and military sectors to instantly deliver visual alerts to quickly notify viewers and keep them safe. This functionality is particularly useful when health authorities broadcast updates to shelter-in-place orders and other important public health mandates.
The COVID-19 situation remains fluid and Enplug is committed to empowering businesses with easy-to-use tools to quickly disseminate important safety information.
