Upshow Alternative: Enplug vs Upshow.tv

If you are thinking of switching to an Upshow.tv competitor for your company’s digital signage software, here are some important reasons why you should consider Enplug.

Alternative to Upshow

1) Enplug has many more content applications

While Upshow only supports social media and graphics, Enplug has 21 applications (and more continually added) to provide a wide range of content options. From news feeds to sports stats and scores and beyond, Enplug can bring the world to your TV display screens.

Enplug gives users the flexibility of an automated system with the control of a manual system. With Enplug, users 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.”)

2) Enplug’s media player designed for commercial use

Upshow uses an Amazon Fire TV Stick designed for consumer use, while Enplug’s media player is designed for enterprise companies. There are fewer hardware issues over time with Enplug’s media player.

3) Enplug now integrated into displays

Enplug’s software is now being integrated into the displays screens of major manufacturers. With these displays a separate media player is no longer needed. Read more about Enplug’s partnerships for (digital signage solutions with hardware companies.)

4) Total control over hashtags

With Enplug, customers at your venue can use any designated hashtag on your real-time social media updates. With Upshow, you must use #Upshow along with your own designated hashtag. This uses up more characters on Twitter and requires promoting Upshow’s brand, which people may be reluctant to do.

5) Enplug offers wider range of social media platforms

Enplug’s social media digital signage supports Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, and Tripadvisor hashtagged updates from your company’s fans. Upshow only supports Instagram and Twitter.

6) Enplug displays posts from your own social media accounts

Share your company’s social media updates via Enplug’s digital signage while this is a feature that Upshow does not offer.

7) Enplug has online support

Enplug has support from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Pacific M-F, while Upshow has no online support.

Upshow.tv possible advantage

If you are 1) a bar or restaurant with only one or two locations and 2) only want to show social media and 3) would like a software to automatically engage with people that interact with your social media, Upshow may be the better fit than Enplug.

Enplug is the best digital signage software we’ve experienced. The solution lets us use our existing TVs and maximize their value. Students love posting Tweets and Instagram photos onto the displays and seeing their classmates’ posts.
