CMS digital signage. Three big letters that for those who just start their screen journey may seem quite intimidating. But don’t you worry, it’s a very easy concept to understand. And this article will give you an idea of what digital signage CMS system is and how to use it for the best results.

What CMS for digital signage stands for?

CMS is a Content Management System. Here you go, you’ve successfully deciphered the acronym. Does it help? Still, we’ve got a tech concept that has further clarification. Because if you’re looking to start showing awesome digital signage you need to know all the nuts and bolts of how it’s done. 

Going to the basics of digital signage, it’s important to understand that it should be treated as a tool. It’s a technology that enables businesses and organizations to show content through displays.

While it may sound quite easy and straightforward, the signage technology is a very complex one and can be used for both small businesses with up to 3 screens and large corporations with 1000+ displays. Today, this technology is one of the most popular tools for communication, engagement, and sales. Not only does it allow businesses and organizations to control everything that is shown on the screens, but it can also boost sales, cut your operating costs and nurture better trust (with customers and employees). 

Does it sound like something your business can make great use of? Well, it definitely does.

CMS and digital signage software

The magic doesn’t happen by itself. To enable digital signage, you should go through several steps of the deployment process. Some 15 years ago, you would need to go through a burdensome and time-consuming process of installation. The display technology back then was mostly provided by companies that obliged you to buy their equipment and follow the complex steps of deployment. Think cables, headaches, and constant communication with IT departments.

Now everything is different. Our solution, Kitcast, is cloud-based digital signage software. That means you don’t need to buy any equipment from us, there’s no hassle with the cables, and everything is controlled via an intuitive app. And that’s definitely a game-changer for those who don’t want to go through the IT hell and just look for an easy-to-use yet powerful solution. 

“Wait,” you may say, “but how is it related to the digital signage CMS?”. There’s a direct link. Kitcast is a digital signage software. You can look at it as a link between the screens and the content you’d like to show. But in order to get the content out, you’d need a special system that allows you to create and distribute it.

Now, that’s exactly what Kitcast CMS is for. When you log into the application, you have a User Dashboard. We’ve designed it to be as usable and as straightforward as possible. Once you’re there, you can use our state-of-the-art Content Management System.
