Pros: Overall this is a good product and has many uses for digital signage. It is very easy to use and is installed locally on the desktop; but, the access is provided by their servers.

Cons: It is SaaS based and has a month/yearly fee.
Can be quite costly and has a limited amount of templates to choose from

Overall: It provided digital signage to our frontline workers and showed them what was going on.

Comments: Overall it does the job we were looking for it to do. It just seems like it takes a little longer than you think it would.

It would be nice if you could build the content right in the system to display on the digital screens, but you are required to create the content yourself in an outside program (we use PowerPoint) save it and upload it into the system to get it to display on the screen.

There are options for how long you want to display the content and it's really useful to not have to remember to go back into the system once you want to take something down. The system will expire the content for you.

Comments: We use the Marlin Edge system to display relevant information to our workforce, including company announcements, new hire introductions, safety topics, and business performance. The system does a nice job of adding in additional info, such as current events and weather forecasts.
