Comparing IntuiFace to Traditional Digital Signage Platforms
There are differences between how IntuiFace and traditional digital signage platforms tackle interactive content creation, management distribution and measurement.
With increasing interest in the creation of interactive content for digital signage has come increasing interest in IntuiFace.
Traditional digital signage (TDS) platforms can address a range of capability from content creation and management to content distribution and measurement. IntuiFace does all of this but adds the ability to 1) create touch-first content - single or multi-touch plus things like gesture control - all 2) without requiring coding skills. This is on top of the ability to 3) collect in-the-field usage metrics and 4) dynamically connect the user interface to live back office systems, again without writing code. TDS vendors are likely limited to single touch, template-driven content requiring either expensive professional services for customization or extensive coding/HTML5 markup skills. IntuiFace uses HTML5 under the covers but requires no development skills.
