Hans Hendrik Starkopf

Their software is top notch!

2017-10-30

Pros

Very intuitive to use software, and what I liked the most is that the customer support at PlaySignage was very fast to respond to my technical questions.

Cons

I wish there were more social network integrations, such as Linkedin and Instagram, hopefully some day.

Henri Piiroja

Easy way of turning any TV into a digital signage solution.

2017-10-04

Less time spent on changing content on screens.

Pros

Unlike other digital signage solutions I've tried, the editor enables combining multiple text/video/image elements on a single slide.

Cons

I found creating touch interfaces too difficult - while it's possible, there is a learning curve to it.

Mihkel Stint

Pretty much everything we needed to manage my displays

2017-11-06

Saves us quite a bit of money and time.

Pros

Our company has a lot of screens across the city and we can run bigger and smaller campaigns depending on the client's needs.

Cons

Was surprised to find it supporting so many languages, including Estonian (which is only spoken by 1 million people), but the UI is still partially English in a few places.

Excellent for small business thinking of testing out digital signage.

2017-05-17

Pros

It allows me to just concentrate on getting the campaign up and running.

Cons

Second - allowing websites to be displayed is awesome, but adding some functionality to it (e.g displaying stuff behind login wall) would make it more useful (like displaying analytics)

Hi Yeshuwanth, thanks for the great review - We love happy customers :)

Regarding your mention on the "stuff behind login wall". When adding a website you can add a Javascript (Might need someone to do it for you). This way you should be able to display content that requires a login.

After trying many others singage "solutions" I finally found this PERFECT software service.

2018-04-24

I completely solved the management of the screens in my highschool.

Pros

Easy management and edition.

Cons

I only had a problem with one screen that didn't update contents but I reinstalled it and the problem was solved (I guess there was a wifi connection issue, nothing to do with the software).

Intuitive to use and does what it promises!

2017-09-04

Pros

The UI is quite clean and not cluttered and quite intuitive to use, at least for me.

Cons

So far haven't found any major issues with the product. The UI responsiveness on Firefox was a bit slow, but worked very quickly on Chrome.

Review for Play. Digital Signae

2017-03-22

This product is easing my everyday tasking - i think that should be an aim for every new software development. Easy, simple to use, beautiful to look!

Pros

It's simple to use - that is most important to me, i do not have time to deal with difficult things.

Cons

Well, the desing is not perfectly my cup of tea but i guess that is a matter of taste!

Fantastic, streamlined digital signage solution

2017-10-17

Pros

Super easy to use and setup (in comparison to MANY other products in this space) with all the key features you'd need to setup and use a digital signage product.

Cons

- Would love to see an iOS app version for both managing your content and using as a signage display

Very clean, easy to use product with a fantastic customer support team.

2018-03-26

Able to show logos and metrics on our internal screens across the business, ability to finetune playlist schedule (ie. Only company logo after hours) Remotely able to update screens across different locations without ever needing to leave my desk.

Pros

Very easy to use, super intuitive, regular updates with new features - I find myself renewed with excitement for this company and product when something new gets added.

Cons

What I have found in my time using playsignage is that the team are usually willing and able to bend over backwards to fulfil the demand in a decent amount of time - features that were missing are now implemented because they listen.

User friendly signage software

2017-02-09

I like how you get just dive into making content and publishing it to your screens - kinda expected it to be harder.

Pros

Definitely the editor - haven't found altenative software that has that.

Cons

I'm missing some advanced enterprise features but I got in contact with them and they said that they have them planned.

I found the editor to very easy to use and offer much customization - such as adding multiple images/videos on a slide, just as easy as creating a powerpoint presentation

Pros

Initial setup is very easy, they offer one free screen

Cons

Only one free screen

Parents are kept informed of upcoming events

Pros

The software is easy to use, not a lot of extra options to get in the way.

I wish there was a way to archive a slide for later use instead of just removing it.

Excelent software

2017-03-22

What i miss is a clock and date that can be shown, in the slides, and also you can set a start date for every slite but not an end date, if you could implemen that so you can set a start and stop date per slide, would be nice.

We used PlaySignage to create interactive touch menu for our visitors on an Android tablet.

2017-11-08

Pros

I was surprised to learn that we can create touch enabled digital signage interaction workflows without any programming

Cons

There was initial learning curve to creating the navigation layout, I think it could be simplified even more, but unfortunately I can't propose a more concrete recommendation.
