The hardware (mini-PC) that you purchase from them has not been the most reliable, often times needing physical interaction to reboot or reconnect to WiFi.

Great means to promote our classes that we offer and spotlighting our members.

Pros

All sites in one place. Interactive touch capability. Reach gives us a great price as a non-profit. Ease of developing and publishing a campaign that can be catered the specific audience at all times of the day.

Cons

Hard to say at this time but maybe the requirement of specific media player even though they offer it as a good price.

The ease of our transition. We phased out our old digital signage system and was up with Reach the same day without a single problem. Amazing customer service and always willing to assist at a moments notice.

Cons

I don't have anything that we like least about using the Reach software. The implementation was a breeze and couldn't have asked for better assistance launching the new system.

We were able to reach a broader spectrum of the public for our special events and classes due to the Reach Displays.

Pros

The ease of use and the customer service provided by Reach. Our scheduling software is archaic so the help they provided during initial set up was wonderful.

Cons

The hardest part about the software is creating flyers that are both engaging to the public and fit the total area provided for each display.

It gives our Recreation Center a way to visually present data and information to the public without always having to interact with them. We display upcoming programs and events, along with the time, weather, and the day's building schedule. It's a great visual reminder to the staff and participants alike of all the things going on in the department.

Pros

It's easy to use and update daily. I use the software to show the day's schedule in the building I work in, along with upcoming programs and classes that our department is offering to the public. The display is always fresh and looks great. Whenever a small problem has arisen in the past, it was dealt with quickly and efficiently by the reach staff. I was really able to customize the display to exactly what I want and I'm very happy with the product.

Cons

The fact that each display has to have its own license can make it expensive for smaller departments like ours. Our Recreation Facility is not overly large, but would benefit from having a second, smaller display in an area other than our main display. The fact that the displays have to be completely the same if they are wired to the same computer, or have a separate license for different displays can be prohibitive.

Pros

We were evaluating digital signage products and our main concern was ease of use and training. The REACH product was very easy to learn and use. The team provided me a short training session and I was off and running in editing our template. Also, their online training videos are short and provide the information needed to make changes to our template. I showed my peer the product and he was able to learn it quickly and make changes to our site.

Another great service they provide is support for their computers that run the REACH digital signage software. Everything is configured and all we have to do is connect it and mount it behind the television.

Cons

We have been testing and trialing the REACH digital software and becoming familiar with the product the past few months. I would like to see an improvement in the color schemes, so they appear more rich in color rather than bright and flat.

Pros

The software has some amazing capabilities! Features that I had hoped for were already a part of the package were there. I did ask for something new and sure enough the support team was able to complete my custom request easily and perfectly. I think their software is their secret weapon. Plus it is platform agnostic so I can make changes with any device.

Cons

It is not very user-intuitive. The nomenclature is difficult to learn which makes the product seem much more difficult than it really is.

Pros

REACH has done an incredible job of furthering our ability to "reach" our customer base to a level we did not imagine was feasible for us. Not only did they do this well, but quickly, simply, affordably and with wonderful customer service and human interaction. I have been nothing but impressed with their quality of service and committment to their clients.

Cons

I do not have any critiques on any of the services provided to us by REACH. In fact we look to further involve ourselves with the company down the road.

Pros

Easy to use, very intuitive. You have many options of how you want your display to look and very easy customization too.

Cons

I have only been using the software for about 9 months so far and thus far the only con I've experienced is making sure pictures are under the size limit. That's an easy fix though to get it down.

Real time interaction with our members.

Pros

The ability to customize the screens to our members. Our older members loved seeing themselves on "TV". We have some standard information on our tv's but love to showcase all of our members

Cons

Would like a more robust design feature for the announcements. When importing word or power point files you have to adjust them to the screen. If there were a similar design feature on the Reach software, would be easier to create professional looking slides.

It made our entryway appear much more professional and modern. It has also helped us with advertising and disseminating information to our community members. Furthermore, it's allowed us to direct visitors without a physical body at our front desk.

Pros

The ease of use is probably the best feature. After a quick webinar training, we were able to get our system running in just a few hours. The GUI is very intuitive, and it's really easy to upload PowerPoint slides. We've found that for what we wanted to do, the software is more than capable of delivering.

Cons

There isn't much to dislike, really. There is a bit of sticking when playing videos as an announcement - the videos will freeze for a second every now and then. The same seems to occur with our scrolling daily schedule - it will momentarily pause now and then, and doesn't look too fluid at times. Minor issue, though.

Continual support from Reach Media/

Pros

Ease of use - it's customizable, and the options to project varying media types allow for choice. We use it for announcements and scrolling calendar events such as sports and clubs. Because we live in a visual society, having the ability to use images to reinforce important points, is vital to our communication.

Cons

At times, there are glitches in the projection. Having said this, the glitches could be related to some of our equipment.

Transitioning to REACH was like night and day from our last provider. It's easy to use and customer service is great.

Pros

REACH allows us to schedule announcements on multiple screens at any time. I also love the social media integration that creates content for us by pulling in curated hashtags.

Cons

The in-system announcement creation is not great. It's much easier to create them in another platform. Sometimes the system times out when uploading large files (50+ slides).

It is exactly what we were looking for to utilize our digital signage.

Pros

I have tried out a bunch of different digital signage software and REACH media is the easiest to use by far and the fact that it looks very professional and has a lot of widgets you can add is great.

Cons

Honestly, so far I haven't noticed anything that I don't like but if there is something that I find that I feel can be improved I will be sure to advise.

The ability to manage the various systems, in various buildings, from any desk top is a great benefit. The ability to communicate with our membership using the digital bulletin boards is something we are very excited about and already seeing benefits from in our restaurant and golf course.

Pros

Really easy to use. Our members are engaged and find the calendar interface very helpful We're already planning to expand the number of boards in our community.

Cons

We're still learning, so we don't have any comment here. We did have some challenges, but REACH addressed them, so we're happy.

This software has really upgraded the way we do scheduling. We used to fill out our daily schedule on paper, but now we are much more streamlined and our team enjoys the added features of seeing images, videos, weather and traffic in the mornings.

Pros

The feature that I like the most is that it allows you to display different images and videos while also displaying the main schedule. Our team enjoys having the weather and traffic displayed on the screen when they get here in the mornings.

Cons

The thing that I least like about the software is that it does not allow you to store a record of your schedule for longer than a week. We change the schedule daily, so our work-around is to save a pdf image of the schedule each day so that we have a record of our daily schedule.
