How Leading Glass Manufacturer Ardagh Forged Efficient Communications With Digital Signage
Producing High Quality Glass Across The Planet
In 2018, the Ardagh Group acquired the services of TrouDigital to supply a centrally managed screen network across their sites in multiple locations and countries, with the main focus on enhancing internal communications.
The Ardagh Group spans multiple locations across the UK and the globe. As a result, Ardagh would need a solution that enabled the manufacturer to remotely update and control screens across multiple sites from one location.
Large screen networks across the globe
4K Android media players
Full visibility of real-time production KPIs
The Initial Goals
Before the Ardagh Group acquired the services of TrouDigital, they had multiple solutions in place. This meant the system wasn’t secure and content was impossible to centrally manage – a key requirement for the Ardagh group. Before the inception of TrouDigital software, there were some key goals.
The ability to centrally manage screens across various factory locations from one central dashboard
To increase the visibility of live production metrics and KPIs through the use of a live data dashboard
Enabling efficient content management, security and control through user-based management teams
To enhance communication between the company and non-desk workers through highly visible digital screens
The Digital Solution Implemented
To achieve the Ardagh Group’s vision of implementing a centrally managed screen solution TrouDigital introduced the following:
Created a teams-based solution that was secure, allowing Ardagh to centrally manage their screens
Increased the visibility of real-time production KPIs through live data integration
Enhanced internal communication between non-desk workers and the company through an engaging screen network
“We have been running our full complement of 13 media players since March 2020. The content has been uniformly COVID-19 focused, updated frequently, and highly visible at all locations throughout the factory. Of the 13 media players in use 5 also run production-spec slideshows updated daily.
The single-point update deployment is my favourite feature of the system. With our previous system, updates usually involved a visit to every noticeboard location. Within the functions themselves, we like the RSS live news feed strip the best.
As a testimonial for the system as a whole, we have been running TrouDigital media players for over a year now with no kit failures. On a customer service basis, both myself and Scott Hayes have from time to time brought you some queries and challenges which you have resolved without issue to our complete satisfaction.
We are very happy with the systems at present and look to better days when we can start utilising some of the cooler features. “
