Repeat Signage at Westholme School, Lancashire

Repeat Signage digital signage software displays student information at Westholme School

"The school was looking for an easy and engaging way to deliver information to students and get them more interested in current affairs and digital signage was the perfect solution.

We are very happy with the impact that the screens have had and the simple hardware and software set-up meant we were able to do everything in-house keeping the costs down.

We purchased all the necessary hardware and with a little help from our maintenance team we had the screens and cabling installed in the space of one afternoon. The school now has 3 digital signage screens covering our main reception and our school’s theatre.

"Repeat Signage enabled us to design screens that were flexible and easy to update. Due to Repeat Signage’s easy user interface staff required very little training and found that their current Microsoft Office skills were transferable to Repeat Signage. With Repeat Signage we can switch the screens from focusing on school notices during the day to advertising during the evening when the theatre is in use." David Marsden, ICT Network Manager Westholme School, Lancashire

Repeat Signage is flexible and easy to update digital signage software

"Repeat Signage enabled us to design screens that were flexible and easy to update.

Initially we used PowerPoint but this didn’t give us the flexibility we needed so we purchased Repeat Signage.

After initial design work by myself I’ve managed to pass all updates on to our receptionists. Staff that want messages displaying on the screens simply hand their requests into reception and the receptionists handle all the updates. Due to Repeat Signage’s easy user interface staff required very little training and found that their current Microsoft Office skills were transferable to Repeat Signage.

Our digital signage displays incorporate school notices, News Feeds, Weather Feeds and advertisements for up and coming school events. The screens are also very versatile so we can switch the screens from primarily focusing on School notices during the day to focusing advertising during the evening when the theatre is in use.

We are very happy with the impact that the screens have had and the simple software and hardware setup meant we were able to do everything in house keeping the costs down. Using Repeat Signage digital signage software has saved us hundreds if not thousands of pounds compared to paying for an outside company to install and provide content for our screens."
