Toshiba Digital Signage Boosts Community Engagement at Florida Church
Toshiba’s Virtuoso interactive kiosks update the more than 10,000-member congregation and outlying Naples community about the church’s better than 5,000 annual events. The Toshiba interactive kiosks convey details about upcoming classes, events and concerts on Saint John’s 27-acre campus – which includes the Pulte Family Life Center and Claussen Center, as well as the church itself. The unit’s wayfinding capabilities help visitors arrive on time by pinpointing the exact location of a given event while providing the current location as a reference point.
“Saint John’s is very active within the greater Naples community, whether feeding those who are hungry, providing free rides to people in need, or supporting impactful area nonprofits,” said Saint John the Evangelist Catholic Church Business Manager Jean-Paul Boucher. “Moreover, we host thousands of events and concerts throughout the calendar year. While we offer a ton of positive programs, many went unnoticed. Toshiba’s interactive digital signage now enables us to successfully communicate these activities interactively and dynamically, which is leading to a noticeable uptick in community engagement and service.”
Beyond providing directional guidance and informing visitors about the latest goings-on at Saint John’s, Toshiba Virtuoso displays provide visitors with dining options by listing menu items and featured dishes at the Pulte Family Life Center café. Diners may also stay abreast of news and weather updates via Toshiba’s 65-inch digital signage. Virtuoso displays additionally provide visitors with a visual account of the church’s rebuilding after it was nearly destroyed by Hurricane Irma in 2017.
Copy Concepts, Inc., a 36-year Toshiba reseller partner, was instrumental in every element of the Saint John the Evangelist Catholic Church installation. The Fort Myers, Fla. company facilitated the agreement, oversees the technology integration and provides customer support.
“The Toshiba team is delighted to advance the awareness of Saint John the Evangelist Catholic Church’s many life-affirming programs, initiatives and events via our digital signage technology,” said Toshiba America Business Solutions Chief Marketing Executive Bill Melo. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration while extending Saint John’s community engagement.”
Toshiba’s digital signage installation at Saint John’s is nearing completion and is expected to be fully implemented by the end of 2019.
