Hello and welcome to this Blog Post edition of #Ask Susie. In this week’s post, we’re going to look at how you can become a Digital Signage Guru with Contribute Signage, Software.
Become a Digital Signage Guru
Hi, I’m Susie. I’m not a graphic designer or a computer programmer, but with Contribute Signage, I can create, deploy and manage all my digital signs. My colleagues think I’m amazing, but I’ll let you into a secret, it is so easy to do with Contribute Signage, anyone can do it.
First, I created an account and with just a few clicks, I was into the editor creating my first layout. There were helpful explainer videos every step of the way to help me out. I uploaded some images, a short video, added the weather and a social media feed and I was ready to publish my layout.
I downloaded and installed the App on to the computer I wanted to use for the signage, connected it to my control panel by entering the unique ID and pressed send on the layout. It was so easy to do. Now, I can manage all of my digital signs from anywhere, just by logging into the site.
If I can do it, so can you! You can even try the software free for 15 days. Go on, give it a go, and you can become a Digital Signage Guru like me!

About Contribute Signage
Digital Signage creation should not be complicated.
YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE TO BE A GRAPHIC DESIGNER TO BE ABLE TO CREATE GOOD LOOKING DIGITAL SIGNAGE
Our approach to digital signage is that you should not have to be a graphic designer in order to create good looking yet functional layouts. You also should not have to outsource this task to a 3rd party company which costs you money. You should be able to manage, create and update your own digital signage layouts whenever you like, from any browser. Contribute Signage allows you to do just that.
With Contribute Digital signage we have created a super simple drag and drop, WYSIWIG editor that allows you to import from the media gallery your own images and videos, add clocks, and other widgets like a Twitter feed and the latest weather. All of this is done right inside a browser from any connected device.
We offer a 15-day free trial. You so not need any credit card information and it is totally unlimited. We will help you with creating a layout and Susie will be there every step of the way. Why not try it now – head over to Contribute Signage,
Deploying and Managing Your Devices & Signage
SEE THE DEVICE’S LOCATION, GROUP PLAYERS, SEE WHICH ARE ONLINE, OFFLINE AND WHICH OS IS BEING USED – ALL FROM THE WEB CONTROL PANEL, ANYWHERE, ANYTIME ON ANY WEB-ENABLED DEVICE.
In order to add a device to your control panel, firstly, you need to download and install our Playback App. Once installed, the App will give you a unique registration code. Assign the location of the device and enter the registration code in your web control panel and your playback device will be connected to your account. You can see the status of the device from your control panel as well as its location on google maps. This makes managing multiple locations from the same web control panel simple and easy.
You are able to organize your playback devices into folders. You are also able to group your devices so that you can have all your reception areas playing the same “reception” layout channel etc. Being App based means that we can convert any of your existing screens into a playback device, simply by installing the App onto that device, or a hardware dongle such ass a Windows or Android stick.
Create, Deploy, & Manage
We know that Digital Signage needs to be simple. Install our App on your device. Connect your device to your TV or Monitor. Add the device to your online web portal and you are good to go! Create, deploy and manage your signage from any device, anywhere.
