Digital Signage and Digital Beer Menu Hosting

Incorporating real time train information powered by live-departures.info. Free to use close to UK railway stations.

Digital Signage is everywhere these days. In cafes, bars and restaurants, technology is rapidly replacing traditional menus and chalk-boards as the easiest way to manage frequently changing information. This application is a 100% web based simple digital signage solution, optionally incorporating a live station departure board to keep your customers informed whilst enjoying your hospitality and waiting for their train. The application comprises an easy to use content management system that will even work great on your smartphone or tablet, and the front of house "Display Window" that requires nothing more than a modern web browser and permanent internet connection.

 


 

Each instance of the application - a "Board" is compiled of a sequence of pages, where each page is one of two currently supported types - "Signage" and "Beer Menu". All pages can be assigned a background image, and have editable "WYSIWYG" (What You See Is What You Get) header and footer areas. Signage pages also have an editable body area, aligned centrally on the page as in the following example wine list:

 


 

Associated with each instance of a Beer Menu page is an easy to manage database of line items, with items selected as "On Now" displayed on the live page. Whilst initialised for beer, all column headings and display settings (including hidden) are fully configurable making it suitable for all drink types (Cider, Gins etc.) or even food. You can also choose to have line numbers displayed for easy ordering as in the following example:
