The most cost effective, easy to start, digital signage service for funeral homes The web forever changed how people consume, share, discover and connect around content. And Digital Signage based on software as a service benefits from all the same things we love about the web. You no longer have to worry about servers or complicated network maintenance, no expansive hardware to buy and best of all, your software is always up-to-date running the latest features and enhancements.
So what is the cloud? How do you get there? "Cloud Hosting" has been creating quite a buzz around these days. You might be hearing the phrase for the first time but the technology is not something new. Cloud hosting benefits the users from various angles. It’s scalability and cost efficient are the commonly known advantages. Digital Signage and cloud computing is a marriage made in heaven; With cloud computing you can let us do all the technical work while you focus on your business.
Cloud 101 – Take a quick course Watch the quick intro to cloud computing as explained by Tim and Michael at GoGrid. And as you will see in this intro video, Cloud computing is already here. When you use services like Gmail, NetFlix or Salesforce, you are essentially already taking advantage of the cloud; without having to worry about what’s happening in the background. So why not use the same model for Digital Signage? That’s the idea!
Cost? Why spend for what you don’t need Cost is another huge plus if you need a lot of processing power. Cloud hosting companies charge their users based on the quantity of computing power consumed. It’s like your electricity and water supply bills – it’s pay-per-use thus gone are the days where you need to reserve massive server powers to avoid website crash from sudden traffic surge. With FuneralScreen you can focus on managing screens and signage players while we maintain the server farms; thus reducing a significant expense from your overall operating cost.
Come up into our cloud When you open a new account on the FuneralScreen® platform, our management system will automatically associate your account with the server that’s geographically closest to you. This means faster downloads and a more responsive work flow for both you and your audience. It’s just another way the cloud is working for you.
It just keeps going and going… Our SignagePlayer Desktop version caches all the content locally. So even if a server is being worked on, your screen will never go down and the complete transition will be transparent to your audience. When the server is brought back up, the SignagePlayer will automatically reach to the cloud and check for new updates which you may have submitted while the server was maintained.
The good, the bad, and the not so bad In real-estate it’s all about location, in the cloud it’s all about security. Securing the cloud is fundamental to its success. It is a core component in the FuneralScreen® digital signage network. Information is safely and securely stored and accessed through an authorized process called public / private key encryption. Cloud computing is a good alternative to a private hosted server, and while there are bad people out there, keeping your data in the cloud safe and secure is our #1 job.
Ready to fly into the cloud? So now you know. Cloud computing is already here. More companies are transitioning into the cloud because it makes economic sense. Let us maintain the infrastructure while you can focus on content creation and management. Any more questions? So let’s get startedSo let’s get started
