Rise Vision Digital Signage Success Plan

Rise Vision digital signage success plan

Most schools struggle to communicate with students, staff, parents, and administrators. We have helped thousands of schools like yours solve this problem. We’ll step you through how to communicate better and get the maximum return on your digital signage.

Communicating with students, staff, parents, and administrators is hard. Everything competes for their attention and cutting through that noise is difficult. To get their attention you need amazing eye-catching content on your displays.

We’ve found that most schools don’t have the resources they need to create content that “wows”. And understandably so, schools are not in the business of digital design - but we are! We have an entire team of designers who focus on creating amazing content for schools.

Our library has hundreds of templates that you can pick from. The templates can easily be branded with your logo and colors to make them your own. And the best part, we add more every week!

You also need a canvas for these amazing designs and that’s where your displays come in... Displays are like real estate, it’s all about location, location, location! Deciding where to put your displays to best get your messages in front of everyone is critical. We’ve found the following locations present some of the best viewing opportunities.

Rise Vision Success Plan Checklist

Account Setup

Tip #2: if you don’t have an emergency alerts provider, our partner, PunchAlert offers free licenses to Rise Vision customers.

Display Setup

Tip #3: when you create your displays in each school's sub-company, name them using this standard: {district name} - {school name} - {location}. This will allow you to search all of your displays from your district parent company. You can refine your search to see all of the displays in your district, displays in a specific school, or displays in a specific location.

  • Use templates from our library to show amazing, eye-catching presentations on your displays
