TrouDigital is an innovative start-up that provides cloud-based digital communication solutions to a number of industries including the healthcare, education, and corporate sectors.
Beginning operations in 2013 from an evolution in micro-computing and cloud-based software, TrouDigital provides a drag and drop digital signage solution to a large network of screens across the UK and abroad. Using TrouDigital’s solution, you can remotely schedule an array of content including, but not limited to, web applications, images, videos, RSS feeds and social media onto an individual screen or any screens within a given network.
Prior to TrouDigital’s launch, there were two main pain points within the digital signage industry; Firstly, digital signage was solely reserved for companies with large financial budgets. This meant that digital signage was too financially overbearing for smaller companies and businesses to deploy. The second major pain point was how primitive and difficult many digital signage solutions were to operate, with only IT technicians and specialists able to use the largely proprietary solutions. With this in mind, we aimed to deliver a digital signage solution that was both affordable and intuitive enough for those with no background in IT or software to use. To counter these issues, a streamlined, cloud-based digital signage solution that requires just a HDMI cable, Android PC, and a TV screen was developed.
TrouDigital’s solution is used in a variety of industries and in businesses of varying size. TrouDigital’s customer base varies from small primary schools to large universities, from local shops to global brands, and from remote veterinary practices to large hospital campuses.
As digital signage technology advances, so does TrouDigital’s software solution. Beyond simply displaying dynamic content on a digital screen, industry developments have seen the deployment of an array of new technologies in TrouDigital’s solution, such as video walls, interactive voice integration, and touch screen directories alongside wayfinding kiosks. One of these advancements in digital signage technology can be viewed here at Southampton Science Park. TrouDigital has installed its software on five digital wayfinding kiosks, integrating the location of businesses alongside meeting room availability, local bus timetables, and nearby food and drink establishments.
As we enter into the future and more businesses venture online, we recognise that our digital signage solution needs to remain at the forefront of our industry. In an effort to ensure that we are the preferred digital signage solution on the market, TrouDigital will continue to develop its software to meet any changes in the requirements of companies looking for a cloud-based solution.
