SMARTERSIGN PLAYER
This consists of a computer (dedicated to controlling the display) with our SmarterSign Player software installed and connected to the Internet.

Inside of SmarterSign Manager, you will find that are five easy to understand sections of the application. Each of these sections can be accessed by clicking on the tabs at the top of the screen.

HOME
From the HOME tab, you’ll be able to create designs using one of our hundreds of customizable templates or from scratch.
PROGRAMS
The PROGRAMS section of the application will allow you to build your content or presentations using a What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) environment and a combination of drag-and-drop Media and Widgets. SmarterSign provides a rich and easy way to create engaging digital signage content.
SCHEDULES
Once you are done creating your PROGRAMS, you’ll need to get your content onto your screens.  The SCHEDULES tab will allow you to quickly schedule and publish your creations to your screen.
LIBRARY
The SmarterSign system includes a huge LIBRARY of built in design tools to help you get started. The library includes fully customizable, professionally designed templates for a wide range of communication needs. You will also find a library of design elements (MEDIA) to help bring your PROGRAMS to life.
MY ACCOUNT
Administrative control over all aspects of your SmarterSign account can be accessed from the MY ACCOUNT tab. This section of the application will allow you to access your account, create new users, access reporting and more (some features may not be available for your configuration or permissions).
