Digital Signage

Create an engaging notification channel for your employees


Digital signage is a dynamic communication tool that uses digital displays, such as LED or LCD screens, to convey information, advertisements, and interactive content to a targeted audience, such as your employees. With the ability to remotely manage and update content in real time, it replaces traditional static signs and posters, offering versatility in displaying text, images, videos, live data feeds, and more.
Digital signage is widely used in various settings, including retail stores, corporate offices, and public spaces, enhancing engagement and delivering relevant information efficiently.

With MangoApps Digital Signage you can display recent company posts, alerts, and recognitions on any screen in your workplace. MangoApps Digital Signage continually cycles through the 50 most recent company posts, non-expired alerts, and/or recognitions to active users. ​Once enabled you can add your API Key and the system will generate a URL that you can enter in to your digital signage platform to display the selected content.

External Integration

This section provides a step-by-step guide to help you seamlessly integrate your digital signage with various external services like ScreenCloud, AppSpace, Look, NoviSign, and more. For the purpose of example, we will be using ScreenCloud.

Step 1: Sign Up or Log In to the External Service

Access the external service's website or application. If you're a new user, sign up for an account. If you already have an account, simply log in.

Step 2: Ensure Your Digital Kiosk is Running with the Application

Make sure your digital kiosk (e.g., Service Desk, laptop/desktop, iPad, Android Television, etc.) has the external service application installed.
For instance, if you are using ScreenCloud, ensure that the ScreenCloud application is installed on the device you intend to use.

Step 3: Start with "Add New Screen" Action

In the external service application, begin by adding your first screen or display.
Follow the on-screen instructions and complete the setup. This may include authorizing the application on your smart Android Television or kiosk iPad device. If required, follow the authorization process on your device as prompted by the external service application.

Step 4: Add the "Digital Signage" URL

Once your external service account and digital kiosk are set up and authorized, navigate to the "Links" or a similar section within the service's interface.
Locate the option to add a new "Digital Signage" URL.

Step 5: Display Your Content

After adding the "Digital Signage" URL, your configured content such as posts, alerts, announcements, rewards, and recognitions will start displaying on your smart television or kiosk.
Congratulations! You have successfully integrated your digital signage with an external service. Repeat these steps for each additional service or application you wish to integrate with your digital signage setup. This integration will allow you to showcase dynamic content and maximize the impact of your digital signage across various platforms.
