Digital bulletin boards, also known as digital signage, are an invaluable tool to keep everyone at the office or school abreast of the news. Whether it’s the staff informing students that the gymnasium showers won’t be working during the week because plumbers will be on-site or a fellow worker announcing a meetup, bulletin boards are the answer.
Also, a bulletin board helps workplace guests visiting a building for the first time. Visitors get general information about the building and fresh news about company activities.
Bulletin boards have evolved over the years. Physical push-pin mounted boards cluttered with sticky notes, poster, or flyers are giving way to digital bulletin boards. This begs the question...
While you may be convinced about the power and purpose of workplace bulletin boards, you might wonder whether to go for the traditional version or the contemporary board. Here’s why digital bulletin boards are better than traditional cork bulletin boards:
When you post important information or announcements on a digital company bulletin board, your message gets published instantly. You don’t have to hand over your info to an assistant or department first and wait for it to be published later. In the corporate world, timely publication is crucial to improve internal communication with tight deadlines.
You can publish your bulletin board message using your phone or tablet without moving from your desk to go and physically post your information. No going up the stairs. No time wasted looking for the relevant person. No waiting in line. A digital notice board is an excellent way to reach workers and employees quickly and efficiently.
Old-school paper bulletin boards can be messy and confusing. Finding the relevant message under a mish-mash of torn and smudged papers can be a nightmare. It’s easy to miss important messages. Not so with modern digital bulletin boards. All workplace messages are clear, well-organized for all to see with a quick glance.
Let’s admit it. Handwriting can be hard to read. As a result, people struggle to understand the message in front of them. Digital fonts are bold, clear, and easy to read. No need for your target audience to squint their eyes anymore to read notices on your workplace board.
Finally, digital bulletin boards are stylish and aesthetically pleasing. You can experiment with fonts, graphics, and colors until you get the perfect (and professional) look you are after in your workplace.
