Increase Employee Engagement with Digital Signage
You are walking past a digital sign at your workplace and a QR code appears. You pause to pull out your phone, scan the code, and immediately you are transported to an immersive experience. Not just any experience, but one specifically designed to upskill you on a piece of equipment that recently received a major software upgrade. Through a series of swipes and taps, along with sounds effects and videos, you now have the confidence to navigate the new features to make your job just a little bit easier and more efficient.
What sounds like science fiction is how S3 Technologies leverages immersive experiences for our customers. In this case, a digital sign is a way to initiate a training opportunity with an employee, while in some cases, the training may be best administered with a video, virtual reality experience, or human-to-human interaction. S3’s mission, no matter the task, is to figure out the most effective and efficient way to engage employees and give them an educational (and entertaining) learning opportunity in the most accessible way possible.
As S3 continues to help value engineer solutions for our customers, we cannot help but get excited about the impact we are making on organizations across the world. From security and access control systems to launching immersive experiences from a digital sign, S3’s team of problem solvers and support experts is here to help guide you into unfamiliar territory. We believe that by embracing technology, our customers trust us to push the boundaries of what is possible to make our community and our world a better place.
