Great product with even better support

The kiosk setup was easy and adding content to the backend was pretty smooth too. Our customers seem to really appreciate the interactivity and dynamic display.

Pros

Working for a unique business, it was very difficult to find a product versatile enough to meet all of our needs. HootBoard is not only easy to use but can be made to work for a variety of different use cases which was perfect for our team. We use the interactive kiosk and the TV screens, and both the front end and back end experiences were great.

Cons

Since HootBoard is a new company there are a few minor bugs in the software. But for every issue that we ran into the support team was available and ready to help us find a solution.

Reasons for Switching to HootBoard

We formerly used a WordPress site that functioned as a slideshow on our TV screens. The content was difficult to adjust and the screens weren't eye-catching enough.

Simple, elegant, powerful digital signage

We needed a better, faster way to share content across the org at multiple locations and in an engaging, creative way. HootBoard checks all those boxes and then some. Implementation was very easy, support is always timely, HootBoard listens to and acts upon feature/bug requests, and I have only positive things to say about them/the product. We've gone from our initial purchase of one kiosk to 6 displays and as long as they keep up with the stiff digital signage competition, this will only continue to grow. We also recommend this product to our clients that need a simple digital signage solution.

Pros

Being able to very quickly and easily upload just about any type of content to a distributed network of HootBoards, including touch capable and non touch displays, ensures we're constantly putting up new content. A low barrier to use/administer is essential to user uptake and appreciation.

Cons

Expensive hardware that's essentially off-the-shelf kiosks. But the software is what makes this product so that can be forgiven.

Conference Center Kiosk

Hootboard is very responsive to our requests and does their best to make everything right. We've had some pretty unique requests over the past year and they always respond willing and ready to help!

Pros

We love how easy Hootboard is to work with! If we ever have a request or suggestion they are on top of it! They do their best to accommodate our every request!

Cons

We wish it was easier to add our brochures, such as our Visitors Guide. That is the only thing we wish we could change!

Reasons for Choosing HootBoard

Hootboard was the better option for price and look of the kiosk.

Mary, Thanks for the review and we love to have you as part of the HootBoard community. As for the brochures like visitor guides, that might be already possible else we can discuss adding enhancements. Let's take that offline. - Satya

Great customer service!!! Easy to use platform for communicating with a wide audience.

Pros

User friendly for posting a myriad of events/items/announcements. Nice display of posts. Loved offering to members to contribute.

Cons

A few features had hiccups or took time to iron out - i.e. events disappearing after they occurred. Would love to know a character count so copy doesn't get cut off.

Big Kid Ipad

I would rate my experience as very good with the board, the techs, and support staff. They are always all helpful and quick to respond.

Pros

I like this software because it makes it simple to post resident events and deals in the local area that our residents can view as they get their mail and packages after work. This allows them to see what is going on in the area, building, and what we can offer them outside of just a typical apartment rental.

Cons

Sometimes there are functionality items that I would like to add, but it is only link based instead of open applications.
