Single platform for all corporate communications
It was vital that BAT SA was able to centrally control the system from an easy-to-use interface whilst also having a form of delegation control in place allowing the correct people to have the appropriate access to the right part of the system. This enables simple digital signage displays to be edited and changed, but no-one without proper technical knowledge or access permissions can make any significant alterations to the system.
With the Tripleplay solution, BAT SA has more dynamic end-point control, for example, being able to run live diagnostic reports so that any problems with any of the screens is identified immediately; this has resulted in virtually zero down-time, allowing the system to operate constantly and consistently.
Deon Mostert added, “Real time distribution of content was a key requirement for us. With Tripleplay’s Digital Signage & IPTV platform, we can display relevant information to staff and visitors; whether that is safety announcements, live video feeds or product information and updates on any screen, or group of screens, that is appropriate.”
BAT SA was keen to make sure that the content delivered was eye catching and that passers-by would want to take notice of the information. The fact that it could therefore push a range of content types in various formats to these endpoints was of paramount importance, and something the Tripleplay solution is perfectly suited.
