REACH Alternative: Enplug vs REACH Digital Signage

REACH Alternative: Enplug vs REACH Digital Signage

If you are thinking of switching to a REACH competitor for your company’s digital signage software, here are some important reasons why you should consider Enplug:

1) Enplug has a lot more automated content

With Enplug, you have access to a huge selection of free, automated content that Enplug’s already licensed for you to use. Enplug saves you time by keeping your screens exciting with new content. For example, Enplug has free apps that let you show live sports scores, stock tickers and financial data, and up-to-date news designed for digital signage screens, just to name a few. Enplug has Instagram, Facebook, Yelp, Tripadvisor, and many more apps that REACH does not have.

2) Enplug has automatic playlist generation

REACH requires manual creation of playlists, a task that can be time-consuming the first time it is done and time-consuming every time changes are made. If you use REACH, you need to manually schedule the amount of time each piece of content is showing.

Enplug gives users the flexibility of an automated system in addition to control of a manual system. With Enplug, users can add content without manually creating playlists. The only decisions needed are which apps to use and how much “screen time” to give each app — and these each can be changed with one click. (Click here for tips on allotting “screen time.”)

3) Enplug offers ease of setup

Enplug requires no training — a non-technical person simply follows a few basic instructions to connect the Enplug device to a display screen and then automate the Enplug web-based dashboard. A frequent complaint from REACH’s customers (according to public reviews on Capterra, a software review site) is that REACH’s interface is hard to navigate and not intuitive. On the other hand, Enplug can be set up in a few minutes and we optimized for a seamless experience.

4) Enplug screens still play offline

Even if there is internet connection, Enplug screens will play content like normal because content is cached.

5) Enplug’s pricing is transparent

While Enplug’s pricing is listed transparently on the site, you cannot find any public pricing information on REACH’s website. Before you ever reach out to Enplug, you know what the pricing is (see enplug.com/pricing).

REACH possible advantage

If you are looking for more variety of static templates to only show images, REACH may have more static photo template styles. Enplug’s clients prefer showing apps and automated content so static photo templates are not as popular.
