Why use a Digital Directory?

How often are you asked for directions to a room? In universities, K-12 schools, offices, and other large buildings it can be daily! The perfect solution to this problem? A big digital directory to point everyone in the right direction.

Digital Directories Easy to Use

They Are Easy To Use And To Keep Up To Date

Did a teacher in your school change classrooms? Do you have a new tenant in your office building? Updating your digital directory is easy. No more walking up and down 5 flights of stairs to add something to the bulletin board or change the letter board. Old fashioned directories require more effort, more time, and in some cases even a professional to update. Digital directories can be edited in seconds from your desktop or phone!

Digital Directory Share Photos

Share Photos, News, And Weather

Digital directories help keep your visitors entertained in waiting rooms, lobbies, and entrance ways. They help reduce the perceived waiting time and help keep people happy! Content such as photos from recent events, local weather forecasts, and top news are perfect options for directories in these areas of your building.

Welcome Visitors Staff

Welcome Visitors And Staff

Lobby and entrance way signage is a great solution for making visitors feel welcome. If you’re a school trying to project a caring and welcoming environment digital directories that welcome guests in your lobby can be the perfect solution. They’ll help parents feel comfortable dropping their kids off and make students feel welcome. If you’re a business or organization trying to create a professional and modern brand, a digital directory with a welcome sign can help your organization look technologically savvy and make guests or potential clients feel more comfortable doing business with you.

Time of Day Digital Signage

Tailor Messages Based On The Time Of Day

With a digital directory you can schedule your content to change with the time of day. You can show important announcements in the morning, news, social posts, or trivia at lunch, and weather when people are leaving to go home. Installing a digital directory in your building will give you the ability to always show the right message at the right time.

Wayfinding Digital Signage

Help Visitors And Staff Navigate

Quite possibly the most important parts of any building’s digital directory: the directions! Help your students find their classes, your clients find their office, your staff find their meeting rooms, and more. Eliminate the frustration people experience when they get lost in your building or are five minutes late for a meeting and confused about where to go.

Share Events and Announcements

Share Events and Announcements

A digital directory featuring events and announcements is the perfect addition to your elevator bay or elevators. Move your guests' eyes from the changing numbers in the elevator to important news and updates. Use your staffs’ daily elevator rides and captive gaze to share all the amazing things happening at your organization as well as your directory information.

What Do You Need To Get Started With Digital Directories?

Step 1

Pick a Template.

To create a beautiful digital directory for your building, you’ll need to first pick a Template from our website or from this page and then sign up for a free Rise Vision trial account.

Step 2

Plug in your Display.

You only need two physical items to set up a digital directory:

  1. A T.V. or digital display
  2. A digital signage media player

First, you’ll need to mount your T.V. or digital display in the location where you want your directory displayed. Generally, this would be in your lobby at eye level or higher up on the wall. Next, you’ll need to connect your digital signage media player to the T.V. or digital display. Media players are small in size and can be easily mounted to walls or placed in cabinets.

We recommend the Intel NUC Pentium Linux Media Player that’s pre-configured with Rise Vision digital signage software. It’s a great plug-in-play media player that reduces the difficulty of setting up your digital directory.
