Frequently Asked Questions about G-Digital products

What are the benefits of digital signage?

Digital signage is a natural choice for reaching large audiences. It’s better than email, printed posters, and bulletin boards because you can deliver breaking news in real-time, change what’s on the screen throughout the day, show multiple things on a screen at once and save money by eliminating design, printing, and distribution costs.

Why should we use digital signage?

Traditional advertising is becoming less and less effective. Digital signage captures the attention of current and potential customers and provides them with valuable, engaging content. This enables you to effectively communicate with them. Digital signage is flexible, easy to use and more cost-effective in the long term.
