For property managers, communicating with residents represents a substantial part of the job. Bulletins may be a weekly or even daily occurrence in large, active buildings or neighborhoods. Despite advancements in technology, property managers still tend to use paper notices to provide updates to residents. But plastering up notices inside a building’s lobby and its elevators or in a neighborhood’s clubhouse is time-intensive, costly, and a hindrance to keep up with.

An interactive digital information hub in the main lobby of a condominium or the clubhouse of an apartment complex allows anyone entering or exiting that building to be updated on matters directly affecting their community. It also helps to achieve a modern aesthetic.

“If you have a condominium with a grand entrance, installing a state-of-the-art digital screen makes a statement consistent with the desired building image,” said Scot Martin, President and CEO of youRhere, in a Remi Network article. “Digital signage is an efficient way of reaching your condominium resident base — of changing or updating notices with a few keystrokes on a laptop or smartphone.”

So, what kind of information can these digital hubs relay?

Visitor Information

Digital signage can provide helpful insights for first-time visitors and potential new buyers. A display of photos advertising the amenities, local businesses, and community events can give them a peek into their prospective community.

Phone numbers for the management office, superintendent, and key personnel can be stored in the digital hub, along with safety information such as emergency contacts and essential defibrillator locations.

Construction Notices

In condominiums and apartment complexes, the most common type of communication that tends to occur revolves around alerting residents to upcoming construction. Need to let everyone know that there’s a water outage? Are you renovating amenities? Planning a fire inspection? Even if the work needs to be rescheduled, residents can find out the most current information through digital signage that can be quickly updated.

Special Events

Easily inform your residents of the next annual general meeting (or any other meeting) through digital signage updates. Let them know where and when before receiving their Notice of Meeting package. Digital hubs are also a great way to inform your community about upcoming social events!

Additionally, you can help your residents get where they need to go with the help of technology. For those residing in walkable cities, consider a digital signage option that provides real-time transit information so residents can jump on the next bus, subway, or train. And one that includes weather updates, so they don’t have to wait outside in the cold or rain! Those located in the downtown of major cities often choose to display schedules of major sporting or concert events, too. If your building has any fun events or even Pet of the Month postings, these can all be broadcast onto a digital signage display efficiently.

Conclusion

In closing, communicating with residents represents a significant portion of the job for property managers. Instead of paper notices plastered inside lobbies and elevators, many are opting for a more modern solution with digital signage. Not only can digital signage give visitors a glimpse into their prospective community, but it can also provide updates on construction notices and special events for current residents.
