The administration can also use digital signage to remind students of any music recitals or athletic activities that might be coming up with automated listings to help drive attendance.

3. Retail Businesses

Event listings are an excellent tool for retailers to inform potential customers of any upcoming summer sales. Managers can use this feature to promote individual products and summer exclusive sales.

If there are any local restaurants in the area that want to display their menus, then retail managers have an excellent opportunity to partner with these local businesses and display their menu.

Retail locations can increase their employee communication using digital signage by using it to highlight staff performance achievements. Managers can give summer shout outs to employees who meet sales goals and use it as a tool to incentivize the entire sales team.

Digital signage can have many benefits in areas that might surprise business owners. 7-Eleven convenience stores saw a 30% increase in coffee sales in Denmark after locations stated using digital signage.
