What is a digital reader board?

Digital reader boards help you communicate your message to your audience. Reader boards are the perfect solution to share relevant and timely information with guests and visitors to your hotel, convention center, resort, ski hill, or airport. A digital reader board allows you to share information such as the weather, top news, events, amenities, special offers, and more. A digital reader board will modernize your lobby and improve the guest experience throughout your hotel.


Why use a digital reader board?

There are a number of benefits to a digital reader board such as showcasing services, local attractions, and informing and delighting guests. Digital reader boards help get your message in front of guests who might not have looked at the brochures in the room, opened your emails, or flipped through the binder. Digital reader boards are big, bright and hard to miss. The combination of these benefits provides a significant improvement to the guest experience which can increase your guest satisfaction survey (GSS) score as well as increase cross-selling and upgrades.

Guide Visitors And Guests To Their Destination

Wayfinding is a common need in large hospitality businesses like ski resorts and hotels. A digital reader board can include maps, simple directional signage, directories and more. Most young guests prefer to self-serve now, and a digital reader board can help you meet that preference. Give your guests the ability to self-serve directions by taking a quick look at a screen in your lobby.
