Valotalive Year 2021 in review

While we are welcoming the year 2022, I’d like to highlight some events from the year 2021. 

Valotalive is growing globally and has customers from the USA to New Zealand. Based on our experience we can say that digital signage plays an increasingly important part in employee communication and engagement around the world. We are talking about corporate communication and employee engagement, production facility communication and health and safety. 

Executive teams and business line managers are looking into the opportunities of repurposing content and data from business systems to digital signage displays to drive employee engagement and data transparency.
