Whilst our (more) regularly updated list of top 30 Digital Signage vendors is the post that gets read 100′s times a day (and vendors on it are always happy to tell us that they receive leads, RFPs and web traffic from) we do like to filter that 30 down into a top #DSTop10 once a year.
BroadSign have, once again, impressed us mightily over the past 12 months (even with their Chapter 11 moment) and have retained top spot for the second year in a row.
The full #DSTop10, in order (with last year’s position in parentheses), is as follows: -
- BroadSign (1)
- SignageLive (=5)
- ComQi (formerly EnQii and last year’s #2)
- Real Digital Media (new entrant)
- STRATACACHE (4)
- Scala (3)
- WireSpring (7)
- Omnivex (=5)
- Four Winds Interactive (new entrant)
- YCD Multimedia (9)
Out (through no fault of their own) are last year’s number eight, i.e. C-nario who were acquired by YCD Multimedia of course and last year’s number ten, i.e. Dynamax.
The annual list is intended as an objective, arm’s-length analysis of the strengths and overall offer of companies providing software, hardware and related services to clients running digital screen networks.
Several variables affect the selection of top vendors, including: global presence; management team; financial stability; track record; product roadmap and development team size; breadth of solution; customer service; and the sophistication of the technology options.
