Pros: It's easy to use and update daily. I use the software to show the day's schedule in the building I work in, along with upcoming programs and classes that our department is offering to the public. The display is always fresh and looks great. Whenever a small problem has arisen in the past, it was dealt with quickly and efficiently by the reach staff. I was really able to customize the display to exactly what I want and I'm very happy with the product.

Cons: The fact that each display has to have its own license can make it expensive for smaller departments like ours. Our Recreation Facility is not overly large, but would benefit from having a second, smaller display in an area other than our main display. The fact that the displays have to be completely the same if they are wired to the same computer, or have a separate license for different displays can be prohibitive.

Overall: It gives our Recreation Center a way to visually present data and information to the public without always having to interact with them. We display upcoming programs and events, along with the time, weather, and the day's building schedule. It's a great visual reminder to the staff and participants alike of all the things going on in the department.

I had originally gone with a different digital signage company, but went with REACH and love it.

Pros: It looks very professional and matches our schools colors and logos perfectly. The social media tie ins are also very nice. The YouTube plugin feature is also so simple it's almost idiot proof. I also love that the entire area can be customized to your liking. The Alert system is also very cool for snow days and delays. The parents really like that one. I also like being able to upload PDF files straight to the signs. We get a lot of clothing order forms that are in PDF, so I just toss those up on the signs and we're good to go.

Cons: The scheduling part is a little bit difficult to work with. We have Rschools and it seems to pull a little bit odd, but that may just be me needing to reach out to Customer support representative a little more. It's easy to get it synced up, but it shows (Home) after every event. Not sure why that is.
Another thing I've found a little odd is that it is sometimes hard to troubleshoot what is on the screen and what you are seeing when you do a preview. For example, if our FB is not working correctly the display will show all black but the preview will still show the content properly.

Overall: Better communication about what our students are currently working on in the building. We put everything on the signs from band concerts, quilting projects, sporting events, parent teacher conferences, lunch menus. Anything that goes on, we put it onto the signs so that when community members and family members are in the building they can get a pretty accurate and recent picture about what's going on at our school.

I really like working with the REACH program and it's support help.

Pros: The software is very easy to learn and the support from the team is wonderful. Training went smooth and was easy to follow. The potential this program has is endless. There is such a wide variety to the stock images available that I am able to make any announcement style I would like. Another aspect that I like about the REACH program is the ability to "work ahead" on items that you would like broadcasted. What I mean by that is the option to set start and finish timelines. I am able to work ahead on different events two or three months ahead of time and then just set the broadcast date and not worry about it. There are many useful options that are attached with this program I however just named a few.

Cons: One thing that can be a bit frustrating is the way Windows updates do not sync with my end of the program. Here is an example of when happens...Windows has an update and when they do my monitor will go down. There is a big blue ribbon across the screen that lets you know you must perform a reboot. Well I am not able to reboot that in house. I have to make a ticket for tech support at REACH to do. Now with that being said the support at REACH responds right away and it doesn't take more than an hour to get things back up and running. The communication on their end is great I know exactly when they get the message and when they fix the issue. So that helps make it a bit less frustrating.

Using the Reach platform has really stepped up our facility look.

Pros: We primarily use the Reach Software for our facility schedule. We also have it connected to our Social Media feeds (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram). I love the capability of also adding flyers but we do not take advantage of this enough. Several of my colleagues in neighboring towns have been impressed and are considering adding this to their facilities.

Cons: Although it has happened often, we have had the system stop displaying our data from time to time. When consulting with Reach Service, it seems like it was an issue with RecTrac (Vermont Systems), however when speaking with Vermont Systems they made it seem like a Reach issue. The issues have been rectified but was difficult going back and forth between Reach and Vermont Systems.

Overall: Ease of use. Nice look. I neglected to select a few boxes in the last page - I also am an administrator and user of the software, in addition to helping pick out the prodcut.

REACH Media helps us keep the residents in our community informed about exciting upcoming events.

Pros: REACH Media is an easy to use web-based software that I can access from any place with an internet connection via my phone or computer. The initial training was informative and easy to follow. I love that I can create my announcement slides in the web portal or use any other program I choose and simply upload the image. REACH regularly releases intuitive updates that make the process easier and easier. So now, when I accidentally make my slide the wrong size, I can easily resize it to fit without distortion. I no longer forget to go all the way through the publishing dialogue to set start and end dates and times. The last few updates have given me tools that I didn't even realize I wanted. Thank you!

Cons: I work in an office 20 miles away from the location of our REACH Media devices. Occasionally a box goes offline and it's a little tough to troubleshoot from across town. (On at least one occasion it was not the fault of the program, but an issue with the internet connection at our property. I had to back out of the program and troubleshoot those issues independently.) I wonder though, for other times when there's a Caching issue and my new slide doesn't load, if I could gain remote access to take corrective action. I have corrected these caching issues a few times, but was able to be on-site to do so. I must point out though, that I haven't had this come up in a while!

Overall: REACH Media helps us communicate with the residents in our community by sharing information about upcoming events, announcing important community information or emergency information, and making sure everyone can see our schedule whenever they like, by simply stepping off of the elevator! It helps us communicate and look good doing it.

Having the REACH display in our store really helps us display information and it is very easy to use

Pros: -It's very easy to use
-I can schedule announcements to display and expire, which is amazing for planning things ahead of time

Cons: -Currently, the social media feed (Instagram and Facebook) shows very small compared to the size of our display.
-Tweets show without pictures
-The time stamp for our social media feed shows incorrectly.
-I have brought this up to our rep already, but there's another department that submits their announcements to our screen and our message gets lost. We didn't get a straight answer on why it's happening or a solution. I wish there was an approval procedure before another department can submit their announcements.

Reach is very accommodating and helpful. Their CMS is extremely user friendly!

Pros: CMS GUI is very intuitive for the most part. Love the dashboard and being able to quickly view status of all players, both in our HQ and throughout the state. Their software is reliable and consistent. Support staff is very helpful.

Cons: If I have to think of things that I don't like about the software, it would only be a chance to improve the consistency of weather feeds, although your software is probably pulling from a third-party so this doesn't reflect much on REACH. The only thing I can think to improve their product would be to implement the App for content management. I have downloaded it, however it appears it is still in production.

Overall: Being able to quickly communicate to staff or members throughout the state. Staff being informed of local events also helps improve employee engagement.

Pros: REACH has done an incredible job of furthering our ability to "reach" our customer base to a level we did not imagine was feasible for us. Not only did they do this well, but quickly, simply, affordably and with wonderful customer service and human interaction. I have been nothing but impressed with their quality of service and committment to their clients.

Cons: I do not have any critiques on any of the services provided to us by REACH. In fact we look to further involve ourselves with the company down the road.

Overall: Increased impact range, ease of communication with clients, quality of service.

It just isn't very user friendly (for me, I'm old) :-0

Pros: it gets the job done. It's colorful. I can work on it from any computer. I can have as many screens as I want.

Cons: That you can't change fonts color and size within the same text box. You can only make one screen alerted at a time. I would like a few at a time. All the screens don't have the same thing at the same time. (I have 5). I can't get the scroll option how I want it. Photos don't always move front to back. I'd like to be able to have a faded photo in the back of my text box. When you move to the edit box it messes up the location of the text (it makes it lower and won't move it to the top of the text box) I absolutely can't use this function.

Overall: Getting the word out. I make announcements and send newsletters but that doesn't seem quite enough :-)

After a full year using the product, we are still extremely pleased.

Pros: We are very impressed with the stability of the platform, after 13 months on the platform we have had 1 issue that was resolved by the excellent support staff within 30 minutes.
We constantly get positive comments from visitors, and customers on how much the digital sign adds to the decor of the lobby.

Cons: The only thing we would like to see added are some end user template customization tools for quick color changes, etc. This is a minor nit pick, as the design group is most responsive to change requests.

Overall: The Reach solution has allowed us to interact with our customers, and visitors in a way that was previously to expensive. We are able to showcase our products and services in real-time, and customize the display to fit specific customer visits which always impresses.

In general, the REACH system has been great to use, and is fairly easy to learn.

Pros: The front end looks great on the screens! Being able to add text effects really attracts the eye. I like that it comes with a stock photo gallery, and being able to do a a quick preview of the announcements scroll is great. In general, the Announcements are easiest to work with, and the Schedule is more clunky.

Cons: The limited fonts. Please add more fonts, or ideally, the ability to upload Google fonts. We have a main font in our branding (Muli) but I can't use it on the system unless I add it to the image ahead of time, which negates the great text effects. Would also love if the Schedule was drag and drop, or some other way to add new schedule items. Sometimes, I need to insert one in an existing list and since it doesn't have a way to add a time (so it would self-order by time, not just date) I have to create a new item at the bottom and move every one down by hand.

We looked at a lot of scheduling software packages, but this one has been perfect for what we needed

Pros: The feature that I like the most is that it allows you to display different images and videos while also displaying the main schedule. Our team enjoys having the weather and traffic displayed on the screen when they get here in the mornings.

Cons: The thing that I least like about the software is that it does not allow you to store a record of your schedule for longer than a week. We change the schedule daily, so our work-around is to save a pdf image of the schedule each day so that we have a record of our daily schedule.

Overall: This software has really upgraded the way we do scheduling. We used to fill out our daily schedule on paper, but now we are much more streamlined and our team enjoys the added features of seeing images, videos, weather and traffic in the mornings.

Pros: This platform allows us to showcase our offerings. We use it to show our videos of our programs in the lobby area. We also use to inform our constituents our schedule and offerings. It helps us to be more green as we do not need to print out as many flyers. We have also increased the number of current participants that may not know other offerings we have and now

Cons: We are not able to connect it to our current software. We have to manually create the feeds through the REACH Program. It would be easier if it was able to work together.

Many compliments from employees and guests about the design and versatility.

Pros: There is so much more you can do with this program than what we have attempted. We frequently have guests from outside the country, so maximizing their time at our company is essential. While on breaks, the tv screens provide a chance for our guests to watch a brief overview of our product, read live social media updates, and see how we have highlighted their visit with a warm welcome. Company updates for employees are easily shared as everyone enters the building.

Cons: While this program is incredibly user-friendly and fun to use, being technically inept can create a speed bump. (So, this is not a software problem, this is a "me" problem) I am intimidated by some of the options and am hesitant to try to learn. Your customer service folks have always been extremely helpful, kind, and patient. There is no hesitation on my part to ask for help ~ they truly are wonderful!

We have had nothing but positive experiences with the announcement screen and customer support.

Pros: It is user-friendly and makes it easy to create announcements with high visual impact. I love having easy access to stock photos and also having the option to easily upload my own photos.

Cons: The new template is slightly more difficult to use than the old one, but that may just be because I am not used to it yet. The more user-friendly, the better!

Overall: Our patrons love viewing the announcements . Since the announcements are so graphically pleasing, it is easy to grab the attention of passersby and to drive home our message effectively and easily.

Pros: I love that the software is web-based and I can update it from anywhere. Also, Reach is compatible with our registration software, which in turn, is less work for me. The customer service is amazing. They are quick to respond when I reach out and occasionally proactively check-in with me. When we give tours of our facility, one of the first compliments we receive are about the digital screens and schedules.

Cons: The cost of the software is somewhat expensive considering we have to pay a maintenance fee annually; however, in the end it's worth it. Reach helps our patrons find what they are looking for on our website and in the facility.

Pros: It is really easy to use. They just completed an update and made it even more functional, increasing the possibilities. I love using this because it makes it so easy for our Digital reader boards and info we want to pass onto our guests.

Overall: It is a visually pleasing way to display what it going on in our hotel.

Pros: Easy to manage. Less troublesome with layouts and fantastic array of fonts, although we would like more added.

Cons: We run into stagnant periods where our finished layouts wouldn't load.
While working on a layout, the software kicks us out after only after a couple of minutes. We would like to have it open for an extended period of time, as we multitask often and this would be beneficial.

Overall: We have garnered a huge following from not only our internal departments, but from the community as well. We have several monitors set up at different sites, so we are able to capture an array of people who view this software. We are able to advertise and inform others in a different form other than just mass email or FaceBook.

To date, we are using Reach Media to project calendar events and school announcements.

Pros: Ease of use - it's customizable, and the options to project varying media types allow for choice. We use it for announcements and scrolling calendar events such as sports and clubs. Because we live in a visual society, having the ability to use images to reinforce important points, is vital to our communication.

Cons: At times, there are glitches in the projection. Having said this, the glitches could be related to some of our equipment.

But, whenever we have a problem, the support team is very quick at responding and fixing the problem!

Pros: Ease of use and convenience. I can access our TV's from anywhere in the world and teaching new staff the software is a breeze. As our Marketing Department is only myself and one part-time staff, the ability to "set it and forget" allows me to program a lot of our ads and event details during our slow time and saves extra work during our busy times.

Cons: That you can't set one ad to run at several different times. For example, one week on, one week off, one week on. You need to create separate announcements for each run time.

Overall: The software has allowed us to create revenue streams by offering ads space on our TV's. As well, other TV's on campus are known to malfunction and are often displaying error messages, where as our REACH system rarely falters. This has allowed us to be the leaders on campus in the area of digital marketing.

Cons: There are no Cons. I could brag about the wonderful technical support offered. They rate number one in my book for valuable customer support services. They respond quickly and are efficient in resolving any issues that may arise.

Overall: The library patrons are made aware of current and coming library events. This allows them to schedule their time to join the workshops, story times, etc.. (This keeps them coming back!)

The training and service I received was great!

Pros: It is very easy to use and has a variety of things that one can use for the facility. The ability to design everything you need for the facility is the best part of the service.

Cons: Scheduling for programs could be a bit easier, but still a great service. The easier option for scheduling is when linking to a gmail calendar, it is much simpler than the scheduling that is offered.

Pros: Easy to use. Great customer support. Enjoy all the different features and functions with being able to use videos/social media and the quality of the announcement slides.

Cons: Have only had a few glitches with getting the program started at first. Would like to see a change in the saved pictures so that you could save them all and then rearrange them into categories.

Overall: Very easy to use and gets our announcements and class schedule out to all of our staff and clients at the studio. Love the versatility with videos vs still shots on the screen. Love that it can be programmed very quickly to get new or special announcements up onto the screen in just a few minutes. This is such an improvement over the power point slides that we were using for all of our studio announcements.

Cons: I would like to be able to set a different end time on the last day of an announcement without having to create a separate/different announcement for it.

Overall: The Elliott Student Union at UCM uses this software to promote its programs, services, and events. We have other digital signage, but this one is noticed most often. This software helps us reduce paper waste and eliminates clutter while allowing us to showcase a considerable amount of information all in one place.

Pros: Being able to fully customize the design and layout is a great boon. It gives us a lot of flexibility to update the screen to communicate to our customers changes in the business.

Cons: Truly modifying the screen, especially the base layout, requires a lot of low level knowledge of CSS. It would be a much better custom user experience to have more granular control over things such as shadowing, alignment (per column), color, etc. through a UI rather than having to code the CSS directly. As a former web developer I have at least a cursory knowledge and am able to do this with some minimal guidance from the support team, but no one else at this company would even begin to be able to those things without a more complete granular UI experience.

Overall: It allows us to show a variety of videos, images, and pricing to our customers and makes our brand seem more modern.

Pros: We were evaluating digital signage products and our main concern was ease of use and training. The REACH product was very easy to learn and use. The team provided me a short training session and I was off and running in editing our template. Also, their online training videos are short and provide the information needed to make changes to our template. I showed my peer the product and he was able to learn it quickly and make changes to our site.

Another great service they provide is support for their computers that run the REACH digital signage software. Everything is configured and all we have to do is connect it and mount it behind the television.

Cons: We have been testing and trialing the REACH digital software and becoming familiar with the product the past few months. I would like to see an improvement in the color schemes, so they appear more rich in color rather than bright and flat.

REACH's team is great, and the system is easy to implement and use.

Pros: Their designer worked with us to design a custom template for us that was easy to update. We asked for some design elements that took some trial and error to implement and they were not only willing to try new things, but great to work with throughout the process. Price is very affordable for what we get and user interface is very simple. Their team is great and always willing to help! Our few support requests have been handled quickly and smoothly. They keep

Cons: Editing within their announcement editor can be tricky. I find it easier to design in PowerPoint or Adobe Creative Suite and import in most announcements, which works great. We wish there was a way to embed the live screen feed onto our company's intranet, but there is not currently an option for this.

Cons: nothing. It's just what I wanted. I have no complaints and if there were any, the awesome customer service team would fix them with pace and urgency anyway.

Overall: Exposure, information and knowledge for my team and our guests walking through the door. I can stream videos, change content easily and keep the waiting room entertained while they wait !

Pros: I really enjoy the flexibility of being able to make on the fly changes to our internal signage. Working with support has given me confidence in knowing that issues will be resolved in a timely manner. The development team is a lot of fun to work with and extremely understanding and sensitive to our needs. This is an all around great product and I would definitely recommend this service to a friend/colleague.

Cons: If I have to list one, then I have to pick on the CMS as it relates to announcements/file storage. I have a relatively exponential learning curve for software but I can't seem to quickly grasp the concept of manipulating files within announcements and how they all link to devices.
Again, I am nitpicking because I'm sure that if I just watched your training resources (another Pro), I'd be fine.

Overall: Cost savings, centralization of content management, lightweight operability and hassle free service and support.

I've only dealt with changes of format and have always had good experiences.

Pros: REACH has given us a platform to "reach" our members and guests through our facilities unused televisions. It is relatively easy to set up once you get through the basics. I am still learning the CMS, but all in all, it does what we want and looks great!

Cons: The scheduling feature can be monotonous, it would be nice to see that simplified if you are not importing a calendar from an outside source. I would like to see more randomness for some aspects of the system, Ie: we sell advertisements to outside companies to help pay for the system, and would be nice to say I would like 4 ads within each hour of these days, where now you have to specifically schedule the time of each ad for each day.

Overall: We are able to put out YMCA's information out to members and guests more succinctly, and with a more polished look than a powerpoint slideshow video that we were using before. Real time updates to programs and events are also very helpful!

Pros: I like the web based functionality so that the marketing materials can be edited from any PC or Laptop. The hardware installation was very easy to install and is compact. The presentation and images are of high quality. Having a "template" set up by your experts was extremely helpful. Again, your sales and customer service representatives have done a fantastic job! I've already recommended Reach to my technology group that works with other banks and other industries.

Cons: I would like to learn how to design and create my own templates so that we could change the format once in a a while. Otherwise, we love the product and have nothing but good things to say about it.

Overall: Professional Marketing, Ability to Advertise our Interest Rates and Account Products, Notify the Community of Upcoming Community Events, Stock Ticker Feed, Inform Clients of the Weather, and the Ability to Upload YouTube videos for Client Education.

Pros: The ease of use is probably the best feature. After a quick webinar training, we were able to get our system running in just a few hours. The GUI is very intuitive, and it's really easy to upload PowerPoint slides. We've found that for what we wanted to do, the software is more than capable of delivering.

Cons: There isn't much to dislike, really. There is a bit of sticking when playing videos as an announcement - the videos will freeze for a second every now and then. The same seems to occur with our scrolling daily schedule - it will momentarily pause now and then, and doesn't look too fluid at times. Minor issue, though.

Overall: It made our entryway appear much more professional and modern. It has also helped us with advertising and disseminating information to our community members. Furthermore, it's allowed us to direct visitors without a physical body at our front desk.

Comments: The Reach signage is essential to our 465,000 sq/ft multi-sport event complex to inform members/customers of our myriad of programming and activities to locate rooms, events, and schedules showing its flexibility for our Rinks, multi-config Fields, tennis courts, adventure center, batting cages, drop-ins all over the facility: aquatics, gymnastics, basketball, tennis courts, rinks, field and events. Importantly it especially interfaces with Maximum Solutions' Max Galaxy software which schedules our Fields and Rinks especially all our Leagues was crucial in extending Max Galaxy for us. Tech Support and Design staff are excellent to work with and customized the boards to our needs as I can make a change, and they fulfill it usually in an hour or never longer than the next day. The latest update has improved it's reliability from previous version that it's hardly ever gone down. The announcements look really good as our Marketing/Design department can create our own promo/info graphics, upload it, setup the schedule of when and how long it will run and let it be has been easy to use and looks really good allowing us to control it all including video/YouTube. From a cost standpoint the pricing has been adjusted to allow Max Galaxy integration which saves us in the long run! Can't get better than that.

I use Reach almost every day to manage the materials that we have displaying on our screens.

Overall: We have had similar products in the past for our in house messaging and Reach is by far a superior product for our needs. It is so easy to use that we let every department be in control of their own messaging so the work load doesn't fall on just one person. I also love being able to layout an announcement in another software program that I am more skilled with and drop it right in the Reach program. Plus, the entire Reach team has been great from the word go with cordial and prompt responses to every email or call!

The REACH system has been very valuable to our college, students, and the community!

Pros: Easy to upload and change out the content and the built-in tutorials are really helpful. We use it for several departments and it's a fantastic way to get the most important information to our guests in their rooms, restaurants, coffee bars...so many different locations around the resort 24 hrs a day/7 days a week.

Cons: Trying to format our content into the templates provided. We usually have to have a custom template created and this can be a little costly.

Overall: The ability to make the changes to the information with ease, anytime we need to. The uploading of excel files really saved a lot of time for our conference service coordinator.

REACH is an awesome company to work with. I reccommend them to everyone.

Pros: Yukon College is absolutely loving our newly installed REACH signage system we have received numerous positive comments from students, staff and visitors on how dynamic and engaging it is. As administrators, we are also thrilled with how simple and intuitive the content management system interface is this makes it a LOT easier for us to train our other staff on adding/changing content. One of the very best things about REACH, though, is the customer service commitment, the attention to detail, response times in the event of issues and overall sense of value placed on the customer is priceless. We are now using REACH as an example of what we are looking for when we attempt to engage other service providers!

I've been using this software for close to 2 years.

Pros: I like the ease of adding announcements and scheduling changes the most. I also like the ability to incorporate content that I create in other apps and post to my signage through this software.

Cons: The only downside I see currently is we don't have the ability to interchange our backgrounds. We do have various backgrounds but some change for seasons or holidays would be fun.

Overall: Easy to use.

Pros: REACH Media works with their clients to create unique specific interface that reflects our school. It is easy to use; it can be formatted to fit our purpose and reflect our school.

Cons: There is a learning curve involved. We have 5 screens/monitors. There is no unique naming system for each monitor to use when needing to isolate problems.

Overall: Continuously updated announcements. Local control over content.

Pros: This software is able to be customized to fit the need of the organization. The staff is able to change major designs in a quick manner. As a user, it is a simple, cloud-based database that is updated in real time. As a parks and recreation department, we are able to show off our daily schedule, upcoming events, and special announcements on an easy-to-read screen with a thematic background. It is simple to teach and easy to become familiar with.

Cons: There is not much that I do not like about this software. There have been a few glitches and system errors since we have began using the product. However, the staff was quick to assist in fixing these issues in order to get us up and running again.

Fantastic experience. Team was well equipped to take care of us going in to this blindly.

Pros: Ease of use. We were able to pick up the general flow of info pretty simply. Once I had a grasp of it, editing size of rows, columns, and text was a breeze. Sometimes we will have 4-5 items on a section of our menu, other times up to 8-10. Resizing and adjusting on the fly is now second nature. Helps in the odd event we have to 86 an item or discount product to move it out at the end of an event.

Cons: Keeping the time and weather forecast accurate. That being said, that was the only issue I've ever had with the software, and it was related to Windows 10 updates not wanting to cooperate with the Quantum players. It has since been resolved, and is no longer an issue.

Overall: Time and money savings.

Great way to engage and communicate with employees across our site.

Cons: Would appreciate more integration capabilities with outside software applications. I think the toolset is still maturing but is pretty adequate for our digital signage needs. Obviously the key is to find a balance between software integration options and ease of user interface to take advantage of those options.

Comments: With 1,500 students and a 315,000 square foot building, REACH Digital Media will be one of the best methods we have found to convey information while celebrating our school community. We are in the initial stages of this project, however, we are already receiving favorable reviews from our stakeholders.

When the project is complete, we will have three content streams located on ten monitors throughout our school. Each monitor will display date, time, current weather, scrolling announcements, ticker, twitter feed, daily announcements, and our Staley TV broadcasts. In addition, our digital signage will reach beyond our school walls via our website. http://www.nkcschools.org/page.cfm?p=1516 currently has the scrolling announcements on the front page with the ticker soon to follow.

We couldn't have asked for better customer service and support. Their responsiveness has been top of the line. Updating the digital signage is quick and easy without duplication of effort. Tyler Storm, Brian Rose and the entire team at REACH receive our highest recommendation.

Very user friendly, didn't take long to learn all the features. I also love how I can schedule announcements ahead of time and also schedule the ending date. The program also offers a great variety of stock photos

Cons: There has only been one time that the signage in the lobby said it was "updating" and I couldn't get it to actually update. I had to turn the little computer off and restart it. Other than that, I have no other issues.

Overall: Easy to use and easy to load announcements on our lobby TV
