Chrome Sign Builder seems to work best when only one or two resources are displayed. Rotating through multiple screens in slideshow format without a ready ability to advance and pause causes some problems. When scheduling five outdoor ranges and a clubhouse, individuals have to stand and watch as sometimes complex calendars scroll by focusing on specific data and time. On the other hand, when limited to one or two rouses, the system works well enough.

Rise Vision
The free version is great for small businesses or organizations with a couple displays and limited presentations. The paid version is excellent; giving you unlimited storage and a variety of templates to get you started. You can also set up "sub-companies" to let you and your users manage content for multiple locations.

Pros
Google
  • schedule YouTube videos and playlists
  • Use Chrome Sign Builder to display menus. For example, to show menus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, create 3 schedules. Each schedule has its own menu URL to display the menu content.
  • create a presentation using Google Slides and display it using Chrome Sign Builder.
  • When you publish the presentation, set it to start as soon as it loads and restart again after the last slide.

  • It was easy to organize into folders & rearrange the order of the digital signs in each folder.

Cons
Google
  • Would be good if there was a way if it could update live rather than needing to export the JSON file and upload it to the management console manually
  • Could be more visual based to make more complicated layouts easier rather than needing to use percentages.
  • Dated design compared to Google's latest UI upgrade

Support can be sparse, lengthy wait times, and sometimes not the most helpful solutions. If you really need assistance using it - contacting your VAR is a better bet than using Chrome Sign Builder support. We have also had frustrating cases where support will close tickets without a solution.

Alternatives Considered

Chrome Sign Builder is very strong and flexible on manipulation and the quality of signs management is an effective and an excellent forms management system which is very easy on deployment and management of all our project documents. The easy-on reports building through Chrome Sign Builder is also another big point and the dashboard is very easy to adapt.

I have never used another product like Rise Vision. For all of its faults though, I found Rise Vision easy to use & explain how to use. This is described in detail in nstructions which I wrote for the department that took over the task when my department was unfortunately closed.

  • May not be as approachable to a new user, but someone with technical experience should have no issues getting started quickly with the tool
