The Role of LED Signage Inside the Office (part 2)

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

In the previous blog post, we tackled employee evaluation and its role in business management. In that post we listed the factors that cause inefficiency of employees and proved how unlikely things such as a LED sign can help manage them.

As promised, here are the ways to handle the situations we listed:

On job security

Try to explain to the employee the company’s current state and where it’s headed. Tell him how vital his role is in the company, and that a little patience is important however big or small the company is.

On personal issues

They say your personal life should never get in the way of work. This is even harder if the employee is in trouble with a family member who works in the same office as he does. Really, there is not much you can do than tell him about the consequences of neglecting work. Of course you may tell him to talk to his loyal workmates for support.

On office politics

Office politics is something that can be resolved if you sit down and talk. As the boss, it is important for you to be on top of everything. For this, LED sign technology may also come into play. Using electronic signage, you can make the most out of your staff meetings as it encourages active participation.

On having no sense of priority

Make the employee rediscover his priorities by asking him what and who he works for. Tell him that the company will help him if he helps himself.

On having an illness

Allow the employee to take a leave of absence – it’s the obvious and sensible thing to do.

On using old-fashioned office equipment

If the budget allows, then by all means purchase the needed equipment. Otherwise, tell the employees to stretch their skills a little bit and make the most of what you have. Perhaps you can offer incentives to get them going.

In one of the future blog posts we’ll show you the reasons how staff meetings are more productive with LED signs. For more of its uses, please keep to our website.

 

 

 

Installing LED Signs for a Safer Community

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

As streets become less and less safe for American families, the authorities are doing everything in their power to try to overturn the situation. In tracking down criminals, for example, they have already employed the use of digital signage.

Security is one of the prime benefits of outdoor signs, and they are widely used by the authorities to notify the public about dangerous people. This has been the case for as long as anyone can remember. But, with the advent of LED technology, the police are presented a more effective way to disseminate much-needed information.

An LED sign can show a much larger version of a criminal’s photo and if placed in a highly visible area, will certainly reach more people. Along with it, you can still post mimeographed or computer-printed versions of the photo everywhere for better results. Another good thing about the LED safety sign is it can display contact numbers. Let people know what number to call in case anyone spots the suspect in their neighborhood. You may also key in different emergency numbers.

In Bradford County, Florida, cops post huge signs around the community or directly outside the houses of convicted child molesters and sexual predators in order to alarm the people. Imagine how even more effective their project will be if they employ LED signs in places frequented by people. Whether or not the suspect is still in the area, outdoor LED signs will surely help in the manhunt or provide leads to the arrest. The best thing about them?  LED displays involve the entire community.

By using LED signs you can also inform people about how certain criminals work. This way people will be more vigilant. Educating people about their typical methods of operation will likewise push criminal minds to think twice. A well-informed, watchful, and united community will make any criminal abandon an evil plan, that’s a fact.

Truly, digital signage is an effective visual communication device, the kind that every community needs to have. In case you haven’t figured out, criminals have no place in your neighborhood.

 

 

The Truth About LED Light Bulbs

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

LED light bulbs are slowly becoming the bulb of choice not just in businesses but also in households. They are slowly replacing incandescent bulbs, and only for good reasons.

There is a huge disparity in life expectancy between traditional light bulbs and LED light bulbs. Depending on the energy level used, a LED bulb can last for up to 100,000 hours while typical incandescent light bulbs can only afford around 2,000 hours. Be forewarned, though: it is important to control the usage of your LED bulbs because it tends to get dimmer over time, so the actual lifespan isn’t exactly what is advertised. Still, the switch to LED bulbs is a great idea.

Here are a few tips on how to maximize the use of LED light bulbs, whether they are used at home  or in businesses via digital displays. LED signs can last even longer, which is why it is such a great investment especially for your business.

Maintain control

You have to understand that although they are energy efficient, by the time they reach the limit of their lifespan, they will have dimmed beyond use. Be reminded that you don’t leave your LED bulb open when not in use. This may not be possible for a LED signage utilized for business since sometimes it must be open for 24 hours straight. At home, though, be sure you turn it off when you are done with work. Otherwise, you are just decreasing its lifespan.

Allow for some cooling time

LED bulbs significantly lower heat output, so you must allow the LED light bulb some cooling time. Heat in LED reduces the lifespan of a LED sign. Before turning it on again, be sure that it has undergone a considerable amount of down time.

Avoid turning them on/off frequently

This is much like what your mom would say about the refrigerator. Frequently turning it on and off certainly will affect its lifespan, much like recurrently opening and closing the refrigerator. Really, common sense will tell that this isn’t smart practice.

Whether for home or for business, LED is the way to go. For the many reasons why LED technology is the smart choice and why it is here to stay, kindly visit our website.

Also, having your sales people visible will assure potential customers of topnotch customer service, so they won’t hesitate on coming in. You want to create an ambience that will make the customers feel comfortable while engaging in a different shopping experience.

Arrange and rearrange

There are times when you need to rearrange the layout of your store, either to keep up with changes, or simply to give it an entirely different mood. Or, you may want to do this in other situations like when you experience a decrease in sales and need something to perk things up.

Ask friends what they think of your store’s layout. Be open for suggestions. Perhaps you can also ask long-time customers. Are they comfortable shopping around?

See, not much to it! All you need is an acceptance that visual merchandising is a modern art form, therefore it needs a little bit of creativity. That said, who needs a visual merchandiser?

Put your Company’s Name in the Sky Today!

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Proper advertisement is one of the many pillars on which a successful business is balanced. If you own a business, surely you are aware that paying for television ad space or a spot in a magazine can run a pretty penny. Obviously, as you are attempting to reach the eyes and ears of as many people as possible. An often overlooked option, however, are the massive signs hovering high above major highways known as billboards. Many business owners fear that these outdoor LED signs might be too expensive for their profit return, but a new style of billboard may change your opinion.

Outdoor digital billboards sound like something from a futuristic science fiction movie, but they may already be in your city or town. Like traditional billboards, they are stationed on large posts near highways, displaying a company’s logo and message. However, instead of using a stagnant, painted image to gather attention, they use LED lightning to display the image further and clearly in the middle of the night. Also, the improved technology also allows for multiple messages to be programmed into the same sign, meaning multiple images can be displayed in the same location. This procedure can sometimes also be used to create animated signs with greater fluidity and simplicity than previous incarnations.

If you’re searching for an effective way to catch the attention of a large audience, an outdoor digital billboard might be just what you need! Best of all, maintenance is simple and requires a minimal amount of technical knowledge to operate. The shining image of your company could be placed above the streets for all to see, what greater form of advertisement could you ask for?
Have you ever seen a digital billboard while driving? Are you the proud owner of one, and if so how has it improved your business?

Brighten Up your Restaurant with LED Signs

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

Do you own a restaurant, diner, or other eating establishment? If so, you are probably already aware of the fact that attracting attention via visual means is one of the most integral methods of drawing business into your store. Without much concern, I’m willing to bet you probably have some large, brightly lit LED sign outside of your establishment with the name proudly glowing by the side of the highway. While this is in no way a poor marketing or advertising method, have you ever considered what exactly goes into your sign? It might be more important than you think, and worth the consideration for one of the most cost effective methods of advertisement for your business.

Most lit signs are traditionally brought to life with either neon or a tungsten light bulb. These methods have been used for generations and they get the job done well enough, but have an infamous history of breaking down. How many times have you driven across town and noticed faded or dimmed letters in the signs of major companies, leading an oft comical renaming of the venue? Neon and tungsten bulbs can be difficult and pricey to replace; generally a hassle to anyone who has had to work with them. The big question, in that case, is if there is an alternative.

LED business sign, or signs that use LED lights in place of older varieties, are a new solution to this concern. They burn longer, use less energy, and are simple to replace. Most signs are made of multiple bulbs that can be replaced cheaply and quickly. Also, many signs come with a programmable feature, allowing you to alter what the sign does or says as frequently as you like.

Does your business use an LED sign? If so, have you seen an increase in customers? How about a decrease in maintenance costs?
