Researching ‘Digital Signage-driven’ social media

Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC), provider of smart science solutions™, uses 300 PC screens and 11 flat panel monitors to continuously keep employees up to date on the latest internal news and to inform visitors.

SRC has offices in three different cities. “It is great that content now extends to all three locations, but even better that it does not stop there; it also extends to the five to ten per cent of the employees that are travelling via VPN connection.

Challenge

Reach all employees with internal news. Being able to automatically publish the same message on social media such as Twitter and Facebook. Upgrading the emergency notification strategy to be able to reach the right people with the right information at the right time.

Solution

Netpresenter software is used to publish internal news on all 300 PC screens (as a screensaver) and on several TV screens. The same system is used to inform visitors via large TV screens.

Benefits

Staff and visitors can be instantly informed via PC and TV screens. The same software can be used to power social media, such as the SRC Twitter and Facebook accounts. When there is a safety alert, employees impacted by the issue can be instantly alerted. Key stakeholders who may be offsite during the incident can be notified at the same time.

‘Netpresenter has had a significant impact on our employees. The fact that employees who have a story are keen to get it published on Netpresenter, to me, means they value the tool tremendously.’
