Wondersign's Frequently Asked Questions
Below is a list of the most frequently asked questions about Wondersign. Please don't hesitate to contact us if your question is not answered here.
What is Digital Signage?
Digital Signage describes the use of electronic displays to quickly and directly communicate with an audience (e.g. customers or employees). A message (text, image, video, animation) is dynamically published on all screens in a network no matter where in the world they are located, giving clients the most flexible "billboard" yet.
How can Digital Signage help my business?
According to several recent studies, Digital Signage ranks second in audience recall compared to TV. A whopping 62% of customers specifically remembered seeing the ads. A Nielsen study shows that the use of Digital-out-of-Home (DooH) media in retail environments results in an increase of sales of up to 33%.
Digital Signage is used for Upselling, Branding, Information, Wayfinding, and Atmosphere at the POS (Point of Sale), POD (Point of Decision), Point of Wait (POW) and POI (Point of Information). The goal is to generate impulses and improve the overall customer/audience experience.

Can I monitor my digital signage network on my iPhone or iPad?
Yes. Wondersign has a device manager app (Wondersign device manager) that is available in the App Store. Wondersign device manager shows all devices linked to your account and displays whether they are online or offline. New screens can be added to your account using your iPhone and you can set tags, remotely control audio, change country, city and time zone info, and delete devices.
Will I be alerted if a screen gets disconnected from the internet or loses power?
Yes. Wondersign allows multiple email addresses to be associated with each player. An automated email will be generated to those addresses should a device lose connection to the internet. However, the player won't go dark as the media content is stored locally on the device. The player keeps displaying content from the last update until the internet connection has been restored.

Does Wondersign provide news feeds from different media outlets?
Wondersign offers the ability to integrate XML or RSS feeds from anywhere on the web. However it is the client’s obligation to make sure that no copyright is infringed by integrating a feed into their Digital Signage presentation.
We advise our clients to use their digital signs to showcase their own products and services. In a retail environment the average customer’s attention span is an average of 8 seconds. By showing news or weather information, you may be wasting very precious time and you might want to show your own messaging instead.
