The current talk on LED display costs are still at the “it’s a little pricey” stage. But is it too expensive? The answer is No. Are you really weighing the pros and cons of this spectacular product? Have you been given all the information to make an informed decision? There are hard conversations that need to take place before you decide on digital display signage and technology.
What about my Budget?
First, let’s talk cost and budget. You’re right…It has to fall under a budget, but what is your budget for 6 to 10 years. Does your road map and budget conversations talk about replacement after the warranty? Scalability? Changing the content frequently but hardware rarely? Quite a few people get sticker shocked when they see an LED price tag. Let’s try to put those fears to rest in order to have you enjoy the creative artwork and message you can display with LED technology.
It’s creative. Think of LED as a canvas. Digital wall paper. Time to paint. In fact from some companies you can paint in any shape or size, flat or curved as well as custom configurations beyond your imagination. Here is a gallery of ideas from a great partner of Texadia Systems. http://www.nanolumens.com/led-display-installation-image-gallery/ . Take the time to explore the possibilities. Seeing is believing. Life is visual. Take advantage and dream. Create an environment to be remembered.
LED is Durable
Technology has come a long way over the years. Remember the days when we were afraid of our kids putting a peanut butter and jelly sandwich in the mouth of the VCR player. Products change so quickly we can barely keep up. What we should keep up with is, what products are becoming more durable? What is going to stand up over time like that old station wagon? LED has the indoor/outdoor resilience you want in your signage.
Easy to Install and Service
This is my favorite area to touch on. Not only is the installation easy and flexible for your environment, you don’t have to think or worry about service after the install. Have you ever had an LCD or Plasma display serviced? It is not a pleasant experience. LED is very easy to service. You can have spares in most cases. You should look for products that give you a few spares or have a “spare in the air” program you can easily and quickly get replaced. Many LED’s even pop out for service, it just takes a small tool or magnets to release. No need to feel like you are trapped by long service turn times or waiting on parts to get your signage working again. We can help you decide what products best fit your needs.
There is a reason why some LED manufacturers can warranty their products for multiple years and in some cases 6 years. They last. Low failure rate. Not many parts that need replaced and virtually no required maintenance. You don’t have to worry about overheating issues or run times. You could spend money buying two of your current solutions and the labor to replace and upgrade twice in that 5 to 6 years or just put in LED once and live with a no hassle solution. What a concept.
Leasing – It’s What’s for Dinner on the Budget Menu
Technology is talked about in every company whether it’s about IT infrastructure, AV technology or Collaboration Products like Video and Audio Conferencing. Technology renewal is a great conversation to have when discussing your internal budgets. In most cases there are other products integrated into the LED solution as well. Put the entire solution under one program knowing you have the comfort and ability to upgrade later down the road.
There is a great technology renewal option through our partner NanoLumens called ADVANTAGE. It is the next-generation technology renewal program that makes it possible for a business to finance an entire digital display strategy on a monthly basis rather than one giant payment, enabling you to easily add upgrades and additional assets to an existing contract. It is designed to help businesses gain a competitive advantage with the latest technology while protecting against obsolescence.
LED solutions are very affordable even if on the surface they appear the opposite. Let Texadia Systems help put together a technology road map building longevity, durability and ease of service into your digital solutions.
