Flight information is essential in the hospitality and airport industries and Noventri has made digital flight information a simple solution with the Noventri Eco-Flight Board. The Eco-Flight Board is a digital signage flight information board that provides guests and travelers with updates of departure times, delays and cancellations with no required interaction for users or viewers.
Noventri Eco-Flight Board is a highly stable information board and is not a PC-based system. It is made up of an HD flat-screen with the new Noventri Eco-Series SF-200 digital signage player mounted to the back and requires only an Internet connection to provide dynamic updates of airport flight information. Eco-Flight Boards are used in airports in an array of boards to show current flight information for various
Flight cancellations and delays may seem like an inconvenience, but guests and hotels both benefit by knowing about them in advance with Eco-Flight Boards. Guests can book additional nights at the hotel once they realize their flight has been cancelled or take in a meal at the hotel restaurant if flights are delayed, thus avoiding wait time at the airport. While hotels benefit from knowing cancellation and delays in advance because they can schedule extra rotations of shuttle service for stranded travelers and they can ramp up staff for sudden weather changes and cancellations.
Optional features for the Eco-Flight Board include:
- Available Branding – so that the Eco-Flight Board reflects the look and feel of the hotel.
- Installation Services – although installation is simply hanging a screen and connecting it to the Internet, Noventri will do all the work for you, if needed.
- Local Weather – providing added information for viewers.
- In-Room Channel – a convenience for guests to check flight statuses without leaving the room.
- Three-Year Extended Warranty
“Having flight information at their fingertips for hotel guests provides a great opportunity for hotels,” says David Linetsky, President of Noventri. “This allows guests to reschedule flights and wait out delays without leaving the hotel.”

In this edition of Noventri Classroom, we will take a look at using digital signage in a manufacturing environment.
When it comes to manufacturing, it is very important to have good communication with the work force. This can present a challenge at times making sure that they get the information that they need. It might be safety initiatives, HR announcements, or more importantly, production metrics and quotas. So how can you make sure this information gets to them?
In talking to different manufacturers, here are some things that they have tried. One is email. That would seem like a great way to get in touch with everybody. But the problem is you have no way to ensure that everyone has read the email, and secondly, not all those in the work force have access to email. One manufacturer told me up to forty percent of his work force did not have email access. So certainly, that is not very effective in trying to get your message out.
Another thing that is being used is information boards or bulletin boards. The problem with this is that it requires actually printing out information and you have manually tack it up to the board. And again, there is no way to ensure that everybody reads it. You also leave yourself open to the graffiti artist of the factory or some other type of tampering. At times, those boards can get cluttered and look unattractive.
This is where digital signage comes to the rescue. Well designed content placed on strategically located screens is a great way to get the attention of your work force. Also, you are able to manage your content from a remote location. That way you do not have to physically go out to each area and post new information. You can control that all from a central hub.
One of the many benefits of Noventri Digital Signage is the ability to tie in to existing database or spreadsheet. This allows you to have information updated automatically on your digital signage. Perhaps you would like to display updated metrics and production goals. You can do that without having to open up the content creation software. It can be handled automatically through your database.
Modern manufacturing is designed to be as automated as possible, and we feel that the same should be true of your digital signage. That way, you do not have to spend time managing your communications, but rather, they do the work for you.

In part 3 of our series on moving food in a QSR environment, we are going to take a closer look at dayparting. Most QSR’s have breakfast items, lunch items, maybe even dinner items. It is important for these to be displayed at the appropriate times on the menu boards. This way the customers know which items they have to choose from.
So how do you change your menu boards?
Well, in the past we have seen individuals use the “remove and replace method.” This is where the entire menu slick is taken down and a new one is put up in its place. They even have magnetic ones where you can have menu items printed out on magnetic strips. You have to peel off the old item and then you’re able to stick the new strip up. You have to get it lined up just right, and do the same with your price changes.
What I saw recently, which I thought was kind of interesting, I guess you would call it a game show menu board. They actually had photos of menu items on a cube. Whenever they needed to change the item, an employee would have to manually spin the cube around to have the new item’s picture shown to the customers.
With these menu systems, you have to rely on an employee manually changing out the menu boards. They have to take time out of their other activities that they are engaged in. Maybe there are even customers in line and they just have to wait until the menu board gets switched over. Also, you have the added expense of potential wear and tear and replacement of those items as they’re continually handled and manipulated to reflect your changes.
For years, that was our only option when it came to dayparting on menu boards. Now, thankfully, we have digital menu boards. With Noventri Digital Signage you are able to schedule out your dayparting as far in advance as you would like.
So let’s say every day you know that at ten thirty you are going to switch over from your breakfast menu to your lunch menu. You can schedule that in to change automatically. Perhaps there are certain promotions that are going to happen every week, maybe you have a Tuesday seniors day, or perhaps fish on Friday. Any of these things can be programmed in advance so that way you don not have to worry about changing your menu boards. It will happen automatically.
For even more automated control, you can tie in your existing POS systems inventory database with Noventri Digital Signage. For instance, perhaps you’re running out of roast beef. It could automatically remove that item from off your menu boards and replace it with something else you would like to promote. This way your customers stay well informed and you do not have to take time out of your schedule to manually change your menu boards.
For your establishment to be profitable, it is obvious that you need to have a good dayparting strategy. With Noventri Digital Signage you are able to implement that strategy automatically. You do not have to worry about manually changing out your boards, but it can take place behind the scenes so that you can get back to making good food and taking care of your customers.
