StrandVision Digital Signage fits world-class initiative with the most cost effective and efficient tool available…
Hillsboro, OH – StrandVision LLC today announced that Weastec, Inc - a division of Toyo Denso Co. Ltd. has deployed StrandVision Digital Signage through their intranet at its facility in Hillsboro, Ohio, as well as a satellite sales office in Dublin, Ohio. In addition to the operational, benefits and performance information that management posts several times per day, the StrandVision system automatically updates local weather and news, as well as an automotive industry news feed provided by StrandVision. The system also communicates emergency alerts if needed.
The installation consists of a 55” high definition LCD television display that is strategically mounted over the vending machines. This, in combination with the same content running on the company’s intranet, allows the entire organization to see up to the minute news of the world-class operation.
The system, administered by the Weastec I.T. department, replaces a time consuming process where topics were laboriously typed, copied, cut and placed into bulletin boards and acrylic table tent holders. Various associates have been given the authority to update the signage. For example, the HR associates work with the recreation, communication and safety committees to have them more directly involved with content updates. “In reviewing several company-wide employee surveys we noticed that communication always bubbled up to the top of what people wanted,” said David Fauber, Senior Manager Information Systems. “StrandVision digital signage helps us effectively communicate with our associates and it demonstrates Weastec’s commitment to the staff. It fit perfectly with our world class initiative that was both cost effective and the most efficient tool available”.
