How to Choose the Best CMS for Your E-paper Project

Visionect, 16 May 2024

Today’s popular signage solutions are power hungry, leaving a footprint on your electricity bill and the environment. What’s more, they’re not built to last. In fact, the average lifespan for an LCD used for digital signage is approximately 5-6 years before you have to replace it.

Visionect Place & Play low-power displays offer an alternative to LCD and LED technology that’s sustainable and long lasting. What’s more, these displays can be easily mounted anywhere without wiring or cabling, offering exceptional versatility.

To streamline your signage process, our Visionect Content Management System (CMS) offers a centralized platform to effortlessly create, manage, and publish content across all your indoor digital signage.

Knowing Your Project Needs

Visionect software is offered in three licensing tiers: Signage, Cloud, and Essential. Before going into the bells and whistles of our software models, let’s break down your needs by asking three housekeeping questions:

  • Are you prepared to manage your own infrastructure?
  • Do you already have a CMS in place for your current digital signage setup?
  • Are you planning on creating and scheduling your own content?
How to choose between the Signage, Cloud, or Essential plan?

After answering these few questions, you’ll be ready to explore the features of each of Visionect’s CMS licensing models to solidify your decision.
