It is just simple to use.

5.0 3 years ago

Pros:

Easy of access, dependability and updating

Cons:

It would be nice to auto update playlists by adding a folder so that anything in the content folder is automatically added to the playlist, but that may not apply to all people.

Comments: it has all been good- easy to use user experience and dashboard
great customers service as well

Pros:

easy to use and good customer service great user interface on desktop and mobile

Cons:

the only issue i have experienced is when a device goes offline but usually that just requires recycling the power on the Screenly device ... does not happen often overall it has all been good

Beautiful screens, not-so-beautiful features

3.0 3 years ago

Pros:

The screens and resolution were beautiful on this product. Additionally, we were able to deploy hundreds of custom assets and playlists in a matter of hours.

Cons:

We were siloed in to only using raspberry pi units and there were no transitions between graphics. When we changed the infrastructure of our wifi systems, the support documentation was zero help. We instead had to flash each of our 20+ units manually and reconfigure each on the new wifi. There should be an option built in to the ScreenlyOS image on the raspberry pi to modify wifi configs.

Works but costs for voluntary sector

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: Support is good but occasionally a little slow. We actually went back to screenly after using the free Kiosk.show for a while as budget is our issue. This product is not in your list to select from in the next item of the survey. It's been very good but not being updated now.

Pros:

Saves time, remote editing, plays nice with Google slides.

Cons:

Cost for voluntary organisation is high.

Comments: Excellent

Pros:

Really easy to use very functional. The fact that you can time and queue the digital elements is fantastic. The turnaround time from when the media is sent to when it actually plays is very impressive. We are very happy with our partnership with Screenly. The customer service is excellent with a "can do" attitude to solving any operational issues.

Cons:

There is nothing that I dislike and at the cost it is better than anything other platform we have used on the market.
