New York, NY – A new ComQi toolset called OnSite lets digital signage network operators empower local offices and shops to easily update on-screen messaging, while still maintaining tight central office controls on approvals, scheduling and design.

Designed and developed from ground up to optimize the latest capabilities of cloud-based web services and HTML5-based presentations, ComQi’s OnSite enables staff in facilities like individual stores, branch offices, franchise locations, food service cafes, or local health clinics to go online and update their on-premise digital signage screens quickly and easily.

“OnSite was expressly designed to make it possible for people with little or no training on EnGage™, our core content management solution, to quickly and easily contribute to great-looking, timely content,” explains Stuart Armstrong, Group President of ComQi, one of the world’s most well-established and used digital signage content management platforms.

Local managers and front-counter staff for organizations can be assigned and permitted within OnSite to update specific template-driven content pieces on specific screens, doing things like changing text or replacing image files. Designs can be “locked down” by the central office so things like layouts, logos, color and font choices cannot be changed locally.

OnSite includes a full approvals process that notifies managers or network operators of newly updated messages that require review before they can go live.

“When we speak with brands about local messaging, whether that’s in retail, food services, health care or corporate, we hear how they all want to enable more messaging at the local level, without having to worry about things like brand continuity,” explains Josh Nagy, Director of Product Management. “We developed OnSite to specifically meet that need. Companies can get gorgeous templates designed that stay right on brand, control the frequency, timing and scheduling of content, and give local offices the ability to update them. When you have an approvals process in place, no one’s developing heartburn worrying about what’s getting on screens away from the main office.”

While designed for use by local offices, the back-end structural design of OnSite enables central managers to easily assign and schedule content across dozens, 100s or 1,000s of screens. Driven by a powerful database, the platform is malleable enough for specific offices and screens to be influenced by multiple groups and variables.

OnSite is a component of EnGage, ComQi’s flagship content management solution, which is used by major retail brands, corporate offices, health care and education facilities around the globe.

“Our platform has provided local messaging tools to customers for many years, and we’ve learned a lot by observing the evolving needs of the market and listening to our clients,” adds Armstrong. “We took all that, and built something that directly delivers on the needs we’ve seen from end-users.”
