"We like the ease of use of the Peakboard Designer and the fact that LUA can still be used to create complex designs. The first-class support from Peakboard and the speed with which new functions can be implemented are outstanding."
Marc-Philip Stüttem, Head of IT at Joh. Clouth GmbH & Co. KG
The goal at Joh. Clouth was to make general information and key figures available where they are needed. Ideally, content should be easily captured on a digital "bulletin board" - as if walking by. Because one thing is certain: Timely and open internal communication increases productivity and thus actively contributes to the company's success.
The SolutionDuring his research, Marc-Phillip Stüttem, Head of IT at Joh. Clouth GmbH & Co. KG, came across the all-in-one solution Peakboard, which consists of software and hardware. After an initial successful test of the software, a trial version was requested in order to be able to test the screens directly in the individual departments. "Right from the start, we were impressed by the ease of use of the Peakboard Designer and that LUA can still be used to create complex designs," reports Mr. Stüttem. Therefore, the first designs and screens were created very quickly: "We first tried out different layouts to see what the Peakboard Designer is capable of. But after about a day we had the first screen ready for use according to our wishes. The fast response time and implementation of new functions by the Peakboard support were also excellent", explains Mr. Stüttem.
