Professional Services are an integral part of what a good Commercial A/V Integrator does. Professional Services like design and engineering and project management represent our biggest value to our customers and are a natural result of our commitment to continuing education and insights gained through experience. We are honored to sell and integrate with world class products from the highest quality manufacturers, but at the end of the day, people hire us not because of what we sell, they hire us for what we know and how we bring value to every project through or professional services.
So how does a company end user, network operator or integrator choose the best digital signage software/content management software solution for their application or business model? One thing for sure, there is no one software package that is a fit for every application. Candidly there are clearly many solutions that will work for almost every application or business but there are many that will not work and there in lies the challenge. Where do you even start? Why not just buy one that seems to do most of the things you want to do and hope everything will work out? Should you just do a Google search and pick the package that has done the best job of appearing in the organic search or paid position at the top of the page?
Don’t feel bad if you did actually do one of the above because most long term digital signage projects have had to change digital signage software at least once, most two or even three times. Sometimes it even included significant hardware changes as well. So you ask the question, does it have to be like that? Do I have to assume that I will likely have a false start and have to change packages after I figure this out?
MMS knows what questions must be asked. We have experience and insight on at least 100 digital signage software solutions. We have strong cooperative relationships with many experts in the industry (USAV Group and World Class Consultants like Lyle Bunn) that add to our experience when brought into a project. MMS as a professional service to you, your organization or team, can be contracted to help you navigate the vast waters of digital signage solutions, help you to comprehensively ask all the right questions, define a clear scope of work for your digital signage software and then make recommendations and even provide that expert level demonstration. This can be done completely independent of the deployment of the project in a pure consultative professional service.
So consider the value proposition of engaging MMS to help you navigate and secure the right digital signage software/content management solution for your project. Let us help you skip the pitfalls of choosing the wrong software and get your project started on the right foot.

Keeping content relative and timely are the foundation of a successful digital signage network or project. However as you and your organization focus on developing and committing that content to a playlist, one should always make sure that your content supports or complies with your content guidelines. Content guidelines certainly include branding and approved colors and fonts, but it has to go so much further than that to protect your long term interest and success. Content guidelines must embrace the specifics of what is acceptable and allowable as content on your network. It has to provide structure to your organization as they commit content to your screen and it must be in writing. Failure to do so will bring liability exposure to your digital signage network or project that could have long term impact on your network or project. Reality is the failure to have in place well written content guidelines could force your digital signage network or project to carry and support content that is unacceptable and devastating to your investment.
MMS can be contracted to work with your team to avoid this challenge. We can as a stand alone project help you put to paper, guidelines for content that will protect your investment and support uniformity and avoid unexpected liabilities.

With flexibility comes complexity at least when it comes to large audio visual projects. Today organizations are faced with the challenge of supporting both today’s most current technology and legacy equipment of that same technology. So our systems have to provide great flexibility and with that flexibility comes complexity in the form of lots and lots of options. While providing these options are just what all of us in the professional audio visual systems integration business do, what many do not do is compliment competency with the ability to communicate clearly how to embrace and utilize the delivered solution.
MMS understands and embraces professional training to support every single project.
