Congratulations to one of this blog’s loyal sponsors – inLighten – which has been cited as among the ‘Best of the Best’ Hot Products for 2015 by Religious Product News.
If that’s a head-scratcher for you, bear in mind that there are 1,000s and 1,000s of houses of worship out there, across many faiths, and a lot of them are or will be using digital signage to communicate with their communities. The magazine reaches about 40,000 heads of congregations.
“As churches and synagogues, service organizations and other non-profit entities began to understand the power of digital signage to improve communication, build community and enhance outreach, they were often frustrated because the digital signage products available to them either placed too great a burden on their budget or were too simplistic and limiting,” says inLighten CEO Dan Snyder. “We saw an opportunity to address both concerns with our Apollo system, and the eagerness with which our product has been adopted by a significant number of churches has been very gratifying.”
The Buffalo-area company markets a digital signage CMS and an ultra-compact, solid-state Android media player, and has a pile of back-end tools for content creation, scheduling, distribution and network management through the platform it calls Apollo.
“We are very appreciative of the recognition we’ve received from Religious Product News and are committed to supporting our Apollo digital signage system with the same level of professional support that we provide for our iGIVE Digital Donation Kiosks and the other products currently being used by our church clients,” says Snyder.
