Using a TV as a Digital Signage or KPI Dashboard

November 15, 2020

A Signage Dashboard is a tool used to display business metrics in real-time in the office. Over time, signage dashboards have evolved from whiteboards to monitors. Monitors display key performance indicators or KPI making it possible for the employees to visualize their performance and targets at all times. Moreover, digital dashboards can be used to give space directions, to make important announcements, view the weather, and so much more.

The use of dashboards can improve your business as it provides a clear view of its KPIs while providing employees with a better understanding of their performance. Here are three reasons for your company to start using a signage dashboard:

Transparency 

When employees, management, and executives see the same metrics, the whole company can work based on the same targets and goals. Having a signage dashboard is also an excellent way to celebrate accomplishments and to see the impact of smaller achievements on the bigger picture.

Real-time Business Decisions 

Digital dashboards are transforming how businesses work. As signage dashboards allow teams to track their performance almost in real-time, you do not have to wait for the end of the month to take action on relevant matters. Also, your team will likely save precious time on reports and meetings to discuss outcomes.

Metrics-driven Decisions 

The entire organization is exposed to up to date data on a daily basis and can see the results of their work and effort. Digital dashboards keep teams focused on key metrics and enhance data-driving decision making.

How to Turn Your TV Into a Digital Dashboard

Now that you have a better understanding of what a digital signage board is and its benefits for your company. Let’s talk about how to turn your TV into digital signage.

Getting into digital signage does not need to be extremely expensive; you may use any newish TV with an HDMI port or a computer screen and a nice wall mount to support it. The TV needs to be able to connect with a digital signage player or a PC running a signage application.

If you are considering buying a new TV, there are two important questions you need to ask yourself: what content are you going to show, and where is your signage going to be?

If you are going to create content in 4K and you want to futureproof your purchase, you might want to invest in an Ultra HD/4K TV. Its resolution is four times higher than a full HD (3840 x 2160). Otherwise, you could consider a Full HD (1920 x 1080) screen. It is good to keep in mind that not all TV screens are made equal. For example, if you are going to display signs in portrait, you should look for a TV with a thin frame that is the same width all around. Depending on where you want to place your TV: you can choose the type of wall mount that best adapts to your needs.

If you already decided that you want to have a digital signage dashboard; but are not too excited about using a TV, you might want to consider investing in a professional display. Their principal advantage of using a professional display is that they are made to operate up to 24h a day.

Whether you want to use a TV or a professional display as a digital signage dashboard, USx Mount has the right wall mount for you.
