Industry Weapon Leaves No Content Behind on K-12 Campuses

Digital Signage Provides Communication Solution for Schools

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwired - August 20, 2014) - Industry Weapon, experts in simplifying and advancing the applications of digital signage, offers a communication solution for K-12 campuses, mitigating areas where campuses lack fast, effective message broadcasting.

With Industry Weapon's solution, schools create campaigns to communicate dynamic content to a larger audience than any previous form of messaging. From announcements to fun facts, students and faculty alike are more inclined to watch and retain information from the digital signs. Campuses can integrate directory and wayfinding applications for new students and visitors that need directions around the campus. Closed circuit television content can be transmitted onto the screens as well to broadcast live sports and school events.

"Our solution greatly remedies communication issues by allowing administrators to transmit content quickly and efficiently across the entire district. From safety announcements that alert the district in emergency situations, to content approval processes that allow students to create messages under supervision, we've designed numerous applications with K-12 purposes in mind."
- David Wible, CEO, Industry Weapon

K-12 institutions do not have their own Clery Act, which requires all colleges and universities to disclose information about crimes committed on or near campuses, Industry Weapon goes a step further for K-12 clients by providing the Alert Integration. This integration connects with software such as E2Campus, Simplex Grinnell, and Blackboard for immediate emergency messaging notifications. In the event of a safety breach, inclimate weather, fire, etc., the digital signage displays an emergency warning until the emergency has passed.

The digital media company also responds to the importance of test scores. For test-takers, digital signage enhances the standardized testing process by regularly providing them with simple preparation tips, broadcasting reminders of important test dates and times, and showcasing practice questions to familiarize students with the content. By creating campaigns that run during test days, students who are not being tested are informed of when to stay quiet in the hallways.

"Our digital signage, provided by Industry Weapon, has changed the face of communication across our campus. Students know best how to capture the attention of their peers, so having them create the messages insures the message will be watched. Whether the message is about an upcoming dance, fund raiser, or sporting event we are certain to get the word out because of our signage."
- Mark Clark,
English/Social Studies Teacher, Rialto Unified School District

Industry Weapon wants to aid in employing effective learning by providing a solution any district can implement. Situational content is able to be displayed on appropriate signs so gymnasium messaging does not have to be the same as cafeteria messaging. K-12 institutions require a special level of communication that can reach children and adults. Visual learning provided by digital signage is the answer.
