08 Mar Top 5 Reasons to Invest in a Custom Community Channel
We’ve seen them in dentist offices, apartment buildings, subway stations, and hotels. In one single glance, we can check the weather, read the news, get updates on local events, and receive useful and important information. A dedicated TV Channel in your retirement community offers a wide range of benefits to both staff and residents and can save you time and money while helping residents stay connected to their community. Here are the top five reasons to invest in InTouchLink’s Interior Digital Signage:
#1: Build a Revenue Stream
Are you looking for new ways to increase your revenue stream? InTouchLink’s digital signage allows administrators to partner with local vendors and service providers to open up a whole new source of revenue. Dynamic advertising will be featured on the TV Channel for residents to casually browse. Partnering with local businesses that offer retirement community-related services can help residents stay in touch with the services they need.
#2: Customize Your Content
This is no ordinary TV Channel. Everything from branding to layout to the design can be easily formatted to help you design exactly how you want your channel to appear. InTouchLink’s unique platform is designed with seniors in mind. Our menus are bright and easy to read. Display your local weather, community calendars, events, activities, and more.
#3: Quickly Keep Residents Informed
No matter how many residents are living in the community, delivering news or updates can be a hassle. Intercoms are intrusive and loud, and paper communication or personal messengers are a waste of time and resources. InTouchLink’s TV Channels allows you to instantly inform your guests of updates and changes to the schedule on a constant basis so that you can ensure your message has been received by everyone in the community.
#4: Paperless Communication
Businesses all over the world are being lauded for their switch to paperless, greener business practices. Not only is the switch to paperless ethical, it will also keep your costs way down. Send out calendars, communication, newsletters, and more without printing a single sheet of paper. Eliminate the messy corkboards and replace all that clutter with a single information stream that is faster, cleaner, more efficient, and better for the environment.
#5: Reach Residents Wherever They Are
No matter where you are, you’ll always be able to stay in touch. Residents who are unable to leave their suites will still be able to engage with their community and have access to the outside world. From the comfort of their suite, residents can continue to partake in their daily activities and receive news and updates. Staying informed of what’s happening in the world around them allows residents to maintain constant communication and to feel included.
