"Very powerful and customizable"

What do you like best?

Metadata-driven smart playlists help create region- and context-specific playlists in different locations without having to program playlists individually. Setting expiry dates on content also ensures we never have expired product on display.

Also, the Designer suite makes our still images as content more engaging by adding subtle motion and text overlays.

What do you dislike?

The annual maintenance agreements for the different components add up. Getting a quote for a new system has multiple convoluted licenses and line items.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want complete ownership over your system and don't want to go the SaaS route for your signage, Scala checks pretty much every box in terms of capability and resilience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our signage system went from DVD player, to an open-source signage platform to Scala, which gave us a much lower-maintenance, more professional and flexible signage platform. Having realtime reports on the status of the players and logs make it easy to ensure uptime.

What do you like best?

The easability and simpllicity of the user interface design is very clean and sleek. It is easy to navigate and the labeling of fields is very logical.

It does take a while to initially load our content each time. I would recommend add a multi-layered file and folder deletion function.

"SCALA Digital Signage"

What do you like best?

SCALA is a great content management system for our digital signage platform. It allows for tiered permission levels as well as ease of scheduling content. It also has many advanced features which allows your to provide highly customizable and integrated digital content to customers.

What do you dislike?

The back end of SCALA is a little clunky to navigate. I think it could have a more modern look. I also think SCALA is a little hard to use if you have no software background due to the disorganized backend.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great product. I would recommend doing some research before starting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using SCALA to push digital content to various screens around the university.
