If you want to create an elaborate, multi-leveled kiosk for your organization, Four Winds Interactive Content Manager Desktop can definitely do that for you. Just know going in that it's not the easiest to operate, and definitely devote time to training. Definitely have a couple of people go through this training, so it's not just one person in your organization that can operate Four Winds.

Large organizations can really take advantage of their ability to create playlists, schedules, and zones for digital signs. So if you have a lot of digital content you want to display across many screens it is really well suited. Even small organizations, like us, can really benefit! Their pricing plans are flexible and they're willing to work with you to strike a deal. Whether that means extending a contact out longer than usual or dropping some features you don't necessarily need, their sales team is great.

Pros
Four Winds Interactive
  • The FWi platform handles very complex or unique situations better than other signage solutions. They support every standard type of data and web service, and through a supplemental Integration Framework product they can support almost anything out there... or things that aren't even out there yet.
  • Their support and assistance has gotten very good over the years; I'd say it is now excellent. Their team of sign builders and engineers have advanced knowledge of the product and how it can be used; you won't get a "did you try restarting it?" when dealing with them.

  • Providing excellent online tutorials and demos - you can also for more help whenever you need it!
  • Hardware flexibility: you can run their software from almost any standalone device. We chose Asus ChromeBoxes.

Cons
Four Winds Interactive
  • When working with a large installation the amount of mouse clicking and dragging and setting of settings and make your hand a bit sore but the modular component setup of this software demands a lot of settings.
  • As a custom software designer myself I would like to see more group effective operations so I could effect a change at a property level instead of an individual player level.
  • Upgrading to a new version of the software I have left to the experts at FWI because it is rather complex. They state they are working on better ways to perform large upgrades.

  • One major flaw can be the installation of their software on various applications. The documentation they had was good but didn't always work, at least in our case on Google Chromeboxes but they helped to resolve any issues.
  • Support case creation to resolution time span occasionally can take longer than we'd like.

Alternatives Considered
Four Winds Interactive
Simply put, FWi outperforms just about any other software solution by being more adaptable and more reliable, while being competitively priced for its class (top shelf). It's not as cheap as using "free" signage software that's in the cloud, or built into display screens (LG), but if you plan on doing more than running slides and you plan on doing it in multiple locations and screens, this is the platform to do it on - especially if your venues and needs vary across the network.

We actually didn't test very many other signage companies, we really liked Xhibit and the pricing fit our budget for what we needed! We left Rise Vision because the software felt old and clunky and the functionality just wasn't there. We wanted to upgrade, not just pay more money for an added software package on top of something we already we're in love with.
