Fastsigns gears up to offer Chrome-powered digital signage

09 Mar 2016

Fastsigns is adding digital signage offerings powered by Chrome after the sign and visual communications franchisor joined the Google for Work partner program.

Fastsigns, which operates in nine countries worldwide including Australia where its centers operate as Signwave, says Chrome devices allow advertising and information to display on digital screens and help companies drive engagement, promote products, assits in wayfinding and more.

The company says will offer Chromebit and Chromebox devices from Asus.

 “As a Google for Work Partner, Fastsigns is excited to offer Chromebit and Chromebox devices from ASUS – another industry leader – as we help customers of all sizes, across all industries, communicate with their audiences using the power of digital signage,” says Catherine Monson, Fastsigns International chief executive.

“We look forward to incorporating Chrome-powered digital signage solutions into our product mix,” Monson adds.

Fastsigns says the Chromebox and Chromebit devices, which are both powered by Google’s Chrome operating system, ‘are reliable, secure and easy to manage platforms to run digital signage’.
