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.

Very good option to get up and running quickly without needing to invest a lot in training time for users. Less appropriate if you need to adjust your playlist content frequently throughout a day or week

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.

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

  • Scheduling dates content should be active- must manually add and remove from playlists
  • More apps ! Like a new hire welcome that automatically reads a CVS file.

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.

Return on Investment
Google
  • As this is a free tool we save money on purchasing an alternative solution
  • Displaying pertinent signage through the building streamlines operations and provides the right data to those who need it
  • May not be as approachable to a new user, but someone with technical experience should have no issues getting started quickly with the tool

  • increasing productivity
  • pushing infomation and news to employees easly without inturpting their progress
  • of course it's an additional cost to the company however we had to make the purchase because its a win win deal as the return deserves the cost
  • maybe it reduced our face to face meetings a little bit and that was improtant but we managed to compensate that by arranging meetings to interact with each other when its available
