Our new DisplayIt!Xpress software was featured in the recent Digital Signage for Quick Service Restaurants special edition of Digital Signage Magazine. The article, as it appeared in this industry leading publication, follows:
Best Wave, developer of digital signage software solutions, has announced the latest release of DisplayIt!Xpress, with new artist-designed templates for Quick Service Restaurant menus. The latest in the DisplayIt! product line, DisplayIt!Xpress has been designed in response to demand for a more user-friendly digital signage solution. Businesses of any size, from local mom-and-pop shops to international brands, can develop, manage and update their signage content in-house, without the need for extensive marketing resources and IT support. Now including customizable menu templates, DisplayIt!Xpress meets the unique needs of the restaurant industry.
DisplayIt!Xpress makes it easy to create stunning digital
signage from a simple PowerPoint presentation. Features such
as timing, effects and animations are all preserved. The software
accommodates all standard content types including Flash,
HTML5, Excel spreadsheets and other media files. Without
relying on costly outside resources, users can develop slide shows,
video, animation, charts, and other digital assets using their preferred
content creation tools. Businesses can save time and money
by using existing content which is compatible with the software.
The latest release of DisplayIt!Xpress includes PowerPoint
templates professionally designed by graphic artists for the restaurant industry. The fully customizable templates support
both itemized lists and picture menus. Dynamic photo areas can
accommodate time-sensitive promotions and up-to-the-minute
menu changes. Restaurant owners can create and update menus
easily using familiar tools. The software also includes on-screen
widgets such as clocks, weather, calendar, and scrolling text for
news feeds, product specials and announcements.
DisplayIt!Xpress lets customers update content on-the-fly,
as often as needed, with no surcharges. Unlike competitors
who utilize a “software-as-a-service” model, Best Wave offers a
straightforward one-time product purchase with lifetime support.
Software licenses are available on a per-display basis, providing
small- and medium-sized businesses a low upfront cost and a scalable
solution that can grow to meet future demands.
The management console runs on any Windows-based PC.
Users update content via USB flash drives, local area networks,
Wi-Fi networks or cloud storage such as Google Drive. Utilizing
low-cost or free cloud storage services offers the ability to remotely
update content, with all the benefits of a worldwide “wide area
network.” A single management console can accommodate hundreds
of displays. The convenient “Find Display” feature automatically
detects compatible displays on a network.
Robust scheduling features allow for “day-parting,” so restaurant
owners can offer different promotions at any time of day, week or
month. Menu specials can be scheduled by date for holidays and special
events. Unique menus for every day of the week are easy to schedule,
and content can be scheduled months or even years in advance.
Best Wave offers a free thirty-day trial for evaluation.
