Hello,

Is there a way to modify or delete the "Powered by DigitalSignage.com" when launching Studio for the first time ?



Once the client has logged in at least one time, this does not appear anymore, but for the first connection it's always there...

Thanks

White labelling is a key point for many - the lack of COMPLETE white labelling has held us back for some jobs.

Would a simple fix be just have a separate build of the software without the logo that reseller customers could be directed to?

There are some markets we would love to pitch in to where ANY hint that we were 'selling' 'free' software would get us booted out the door there and then, without getting any chance to explain our value add - so it is important!

But the "powered by" does not expose us to your clients.
And which Logo are you referring to? We don't have MediaSignage anywhere ...

An image logo only will not expose us and our logo is made very generic.

please advice.

Hello

Don't be kidding Admin ! :-)

We are not really speaking about the "logo", but as a reseller, the fact that we are communicating on "Powered by DigitalSignage.com" is the same as comitting commercial suicide in most cases...

I have already had the chance to share this issue with a few people at MediaSignage, but it seems nobody really understands this issue in your company. Too bad because this schizophrenic attitude of MediaSignage will, eventually, create very delicate situations for resellers : you cannot White Label AND sell to final clients AT THE SAME TIME.

In France we would say that you want the butter and the money from selling the butter : it is just not possible ! :-)

Have a nice day

Hi

What about when you click on your logo, does it take user to your website?

I think the first Connection you are referring to is if the client has the address of digital signage.com to install software....( i just did an install of software from media signage.com and it did just that, after my login  it did not show that)my clients will only ever have the link I installed on my website to install software which does have my powered by (my company logo) or it shows only "media signage"......

 it shows only "media signage"......

So having sold a  multi thousand dollar hardware / software / content deal into a chain of xyz stores / locations, the first thing they see, first time out  is the NON generic term 'media signage' which if you google gives you the first result "The world's most popular FREE Digital Signage platform". Superb. Really professional.

We LOVE your system, but if you want our dollar we need to KEEP  *** OUR *** customers. It needs to be 100% non traceable white label!

I will have to agree with Admin on this. If your clients use the site that you set up by following the instructions on White labeling, only your info will show. If you do not set it up, then of course their info will show. I just did a fresh install and nowhere did it mention Media Signage or Digital Signage. The only area where the logo does show up is in the actual install for the player. Admin, if you could please mention this to the devs, maybe replace the logo with a generic logo like the studio does. Also, it couldn't hurt to name the application something more generic than SignagePlayer or SignageStudio. You all have done such a great job in branding, that even those somewhat generic names get you placed on Google's top 10. Just a thought.

Thanks for the feedback, the only issue with the Logo at install is that it is bound to a certificate for Adobe AIR signed by Thawe and it's a big challenge to re certify a new AIR app.
That's the only reason we didn't change that logo (which is kind of generic anyways), everywhere else we changed everything so MS is not referenced.

I've lost some customers who found MediaSignage on google. They learned everything with my support, and then left us to use free solution for you. That's not good. I uncertainty about the sustainability of this business.

In case you are using mediandroid solution then you are in bigger soup. If you want to update the player in front of the customer you will have to go the playstore and update (even if the auto update has been given) and the playstore shows digital signage is free and mediasignage mail id :)

Oh dear. Surely (admin) this can somehow be fixed? Real auto updates - no need to visit some consumer app store?
