4 Ways Digital Signage Makes Your Factory Run Like A Well-Oiled Machine

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Getting everyone informed in an office setting is already a tough job. Now think about what an impossible task it is to keep everybody on the same page in industrial plants with hundreds or even thousands of employees, who do not have access to a computer. Shooting a quick e-mail is obviously not an option, so what is? Digital Signage. Large screens in factory halls do not only convey important information to large groups of workers at the same time, they can also improve motivation, increase safety and boost productivity. 

Here are 4 ways digital signage can be used in industrial facilities: 

1.   KPIs near production lines

Large screens that show actual- and target figures to your workforce work incredibly well to drive production at your plant. Display output like up to the minute production information, actual production figures and comparisons against a target or a previous period, and motivate your staff to meet their goals without keeping them from their work.


2.   Gamification

Nobody likes to lose a game. That’s why more and more industry leaders are turning to gamification to motivate their staff and raise production figures. By introducing game elements, like scoreboards, in the workplace, a natural urge to win takes over, making workers want to perform even better. Digital signage in industrial facilities help keep your staff’s eyes on the prize by displaying game announcements and scores throughout your facility.


3.   Employee of the month

Employee incentives, like employee of the month, can generate healthy competition between individuals or teams within a company. If the incentive is compelling enough, it can make everyone work harder. Keep everyone engaged by broadcasting incentive outcomes or announcements on large screens within your organization.


4.   Days without incidents

Keeping track of how many days your facility has gone without an injury using digital signage screens can serve two purposes. These large safety scoreboards can inform employees of how many days your business has run injury-free and they can promote safety. On top of that, digital signage screens are perfectly suited for break rooms or near time clocks, ensuring that everyone will see them.
