Every signage need is different, they understand that.

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: Pixel perfect content delivered to my users. The ability to use their development for custom solutions. And of course, happy clients.
The interface is easy once you understand the basics or logic. Don't let the interface throw you off. The people of this company are development powerhouses. They have the best support and are always listening to interface changes. The technology is solid -too solid.

Pros:

They have their own creative team that constantly tests new technology with emerging ways of creating and delivering content. By joining forces, they are quickly able to adapt to just any change in content. They truly back of what people enjoy most about signage, the content. And it's scalable, super important -whether you are a smaller company managing your own or a larger company having their content managing it from them. It is an enjoyable company to work with as well.

Leaps ahead of competitors

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: As an integrator we checked multiple software for operating and monitoring digital signage. Put against top competitors, UcView is the clear top choice. The UI is super friendly and easy to operate, processes are intuitive and logic is just right for smooth operations.

Pros:

Robust system, agile, configurable, easily scalable, smooth operations and monitoring, great technical support and developer support.

Cons:

After using the software for several years, we can’t say we have a least favorite. Seriously, none!

Alternatives Considered: Signagelive and Scala

Reasons for Switching to UCView: I have no doubt that anyone with 30min tour will choose ucview over competition.

Giving false information on sale hardware

2.0 3 years ago

Comments: I was using Ucview software for my inside studio, salesperson advise me if you want our service without any monthly cost buy our hardware, I bought a hardware it was very difficult to set up the first time like network, video input configuration, remote connectivity, and some other issue bt tech support . its take two months to set up . I ask for sales if I can return the unit and use subscription they deny to say that it's cross 30 day even server not set up that time. later I find out my all setup go away when I call tech support than they ask me to pay yearly support fee to activate. I do not recommend anybody Ucview because of false information for sale and tech support. beware.

Pros:

I do not recommend anybody Ucview because of false information for sale and tech support. beware.

Ubiquitous variability, scalable, supported by a team that continues to push the envelope.

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: I have been using UCView and working with their team for a little over 7 years, applying the software to a variety of spaces including room sign communications, elevator messaging, lobby video wall systems etc. People come to me with a variety of ideas that can seem outside the box or unorthodox in the digital signage world. UCView have been extremely important in this process, as they are interested in bringing a realistic perspective as well as throwing out alternative options that may work for the project no matter what it may be or how outlandish the idea may seem. They continue to show a willingness to go above and beyond in this phase, and will stick by their assertions when the time comes to bring one of these to fruition; a quality that is certainly fleeting by comparison nowadays.

Pros:

Once you get used to the unique and easy to understand workflow, any changes made or even sudden content requests needed to be pushed to a location for an event can be completed in 5 minutes. Those familiar with other platforms will know that this used to be a confusing, time consuming task that often required a correspondence with customer support. UCView has a platform that is transparent in comparison; displays are arranged by location and can be grouped along with the content they are showing, which also gives credence to the fact that it can also be scaled as much as needed no matter the size of the enterprise.

Cons:

As I mentioned in the title, the team at UCView are constantly working on the software development to cover the platforms that appeal to it's customers. Overall this is good, but it also means that the latest software packages can have unforeseen issues that need to be patched. This can be avoided easily by simply sticking with the versions that have worked in the past, but being the type that likes to experiment with the 'latest and greatest', I come across these once and a while. I don't have anything bad to say about the software if it's used properly; so I'll also turn a con into a pro and say that I would rather see new versions come out as it just solidifies one's confidence that they are still pushing the limits and finding new uses for the platform versus stagnating and not moving at all. It shows that they are not satisfied with 'good enough' like some of the platforms I have used prior to UCView.

UCView Microsite feature delivers maximum flexibility, support team is excellent

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: We tried a few different digital display systems over the past couple of years. A few got close to serving our needs, but each missed one or more key features ... until we discovered UCView. As a charitable non-profit organization, we offer 3-25 day learning programs, in a group setting on our residential campus, related to personal and professional development. We now use UCView exclusively for our digital displays, including an information screen (image and video gallery; donor appreciation wall; time, date and weather; text scroll announcements) and a digital rack card display (replacement for paper rack cards used to market our programs). To create the digital rack card display we used UCView's Microsite feature, which allowed us to incorporate images, video, interactive text and more - basically, a custom web page we developed using Adobe Muse - on a large format touchscreen powered by a UCView VM45 player. We've just gone live with the touchscreen display and our visitors and program participants are finding it highly engaging. They love it! It's prompted strong interest in some of our new programs, and we're sure that increased registrations will soon follow. From design to development to implementation to on-going management, the UCView admin portal has served us well - it's well-organized and effective. Overall, we have found the app to be feature-rich and solid. And throughout our trial period, proof-of-concept testing and implementation, the UCView team has delivered outstanding support. In short, we love the product and our experience has been great!
