Carousel Digital Signage is offering a free package to frontline COVID-19 responders to help facilities communicate important messages in waiting areas, walkways and other public-facing spaces. The offer extends to healthcare facilities as well as essential businesses in operation.
“As crowded hospitals, pop-up healthcare/ICU tents, test sites, and other COVID-19 focused organisations interact with an influx of patients, family and community members, digital signage will make visitors feel welcomed, connected, and informed as they navigate their way through unfamiliar surroundings,” said JJ Parker, CEO of Carousel Digital Signage. “We want to help our frontline organizations provide accurate, up-to-date information and messaging without unneeded costs and technical concerns.”
Carousel Digital Signage is providing a three-month subscription of Carousel Cloud, a SaaS-cloud-based CMS, along with ‘Frontline Responder’ templates to create and deliver emergency messages unique to each facility. Carousel Digital Signage will also provide creative and technical support services, with insight on using existing infrastructure and consumer devices with Carousel Cloud software. That includes leveraging traditional TV screens and Apple TV devices, which Carousel Cloud automatically configures as media players once connected.

Carousel will also provide a specialised training course that focuses on key software features and capabilities, ensuring that that time-constrained service providers can quickly implement digital signage. Training includes an overview of Carousel’s alerting capability, which can update all signage displays instantaneously as situations change. Trainees will also learn how to use Carousel software and manage digital signage content from onsite and remote locations.
“Because COVID-19 service providers have more important things to focus on, we designed training materials and set-up procedures to get from ‘zero to signage’ with the least amount of time commitment,” Parker added. “Once Carousel is configured, facilities can add displays in the indoor and outdoor areas where they most need to communicate.”
In addition to hospitals and healthcare facilities, Carousel Digital Signage is offering the package to essential government facilities and businesses, including grocery stores, pharmacies, take-out restaurants and manufacturing businesses with critical supply chains to manage. Organisations and those that work or communicate with them can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
