Mobile Messaging Helps Stocksigns Stay Connected

Launched earlier this year, the latest scrolling LED signs from Messagemaker have demonstrated their versatility as a mobile messaging solution for parent company Stocksigns, one of the UK’s largest providers of safety signs. Providing a link between factory and office staff, the electronic signs are used to keep both office and factory staff up to date with the latest sales and product news, as well as relaying essential safety messages.

Since its introduction, the TwittLED range of rolling ticker displays has attracted a lot of interest from the market for its versatility and ease of use. Harnessing the functionality and speed of Twitter, the signs can be set to stream instant messages from a mobile phone or tablet with open access or run on a closed loop as an in-company messaging system.

For Stocksigns, the immediate messaging facility has proved a boon for keeping in touch with employees, with TwittLED signs installed in both factory floor and office areas. In the factory, the signs are used for a range of purposes, as Jo Godden of Stocksigns explains:

“The signs provide a quick way to keep factory staff up to date with progress on new production developments, for example during the testing phase of a new large format printer, we have recently introduced, and to alert staff on large projects and contract wins. Visible to anyone in the factory, the signs also allow us to relay important safety messages on activities in the area, such as any building works being carried out and upcoming fire alarm tests.”

A second sign in the sales office is set to receive Twitter feeds, relaying company news as it is posted and also direct news from events such as exhibitions. The TwittLED signs also allow Stocksigns to post news of big sales successes and top achievers.

Continues Jo: “Having the freedom to update messages remotely enables us to respond quickly and to keep in touch when we are out and about from the office. We have had the system in place since it was first developed and it’s been a great success.”
