Here is a brief list of few things that can be done to use the signage display in the best possible way:
1. Place them in the lobby area of your hotel

1. You can be an exclusive hardware provider
This would be a worthwhile earning opportunity. You can supply the hardware to not only your clients in the hospitality sector but also other industries too.
A wise decision would be to offer hardware of every kind of brand instead of just going for a particular brand. A lot of clients might prefer to have certain specific brands only and this could lead you to a loss of a big earning opportunity.
Different kinds of hardware that work as signage are tablets, monitors, Smart TVs and commercial TVs.
With time and experience, you might be able to offer a more consultative approach towards what kind of hardware to go with and what works best as per the content needs of the clients.
2. You can be an exclusive software provider
This could be one of the most important services that can take you to places. Many hospitality organizations that employ an end number of digital screens would always look for a reliable software partner that can fulfil all their needs.

5. You can also earn from the support services
Support services like installation, hiring support staff to answer queries of hospitality customers or services that you can give in case of hardware defects can as well help you earn.
We advise you to club this with the hardware support that you give. Many times, businesses tend to earn more from their support services as opposed to the primary service that they give.
Along with this, you can also add project management services. Take on all the content management needs on several projects from your clients at big hotels, resorts and restaurants so their time and resources are saved. You become a reliable business partner for all their signage management needs.

This is again a very lucrative way to start earning some good revenue. A lot of new restaurants or hotels need consultants who can take care of all their needs.
