In 2019 NowSignage became the first digital signage CMS in the world to be genuinely hardware agnostic via single code base therefore supporting all digital signage hardware. This means that whatever type of signage panel or media player you use, you can be sure that NowSignage will work straight out of the box. Despite the agnostic nature of our product we have still worked very closely with all of the main manufacturers to ensure that testing is robust and that our software is stable, secure, and that key features and updates all work seamlessly on their respective hardware.
Android is the operating system inside over 2.5 billion active devices. From phones to tablets to digital signage screens and TVs, Android powers them all. Android can be found in dozens of different media players or as the chosen “system-on-chip” within digital signage screens.

Their team demonstrated a willingness and capability to be agile to our sector specific requirements and have introduced new features into the platform based on our direct feedback.”
“Their platform is easy for a non-technical person to manage and gives us great control over what and when we display content on our 300+ screens. The support provided by NowSignage was above and beyond throughout the initial setup, and I’m pleased to say their customer and technical support has continued to be first class to this day.”
“Implementing digital signage with NowSignage has helped bring The Pensions Regulator offices into the 21st century. NowSignage is so easy to use and working with them is a delight. One feature that has become particularly useful is the ability to login to the platform, upload images with captions and then broadcast these posts into our live Twitter Wall and news displays.”
Unlike many digital signage CMS platforms on the market, NowSignage does not do hardware. We are a pure-play, software house. In other words, we only do CMS and all we will ever do is CMS. We intend to continue doing it better and making it easier for users, resellers and partners to use and to purchase. Furthermore, in 2019 we became the world’s first and only genuinely hardware-agnostic CMS via a single code base. Despite this, as a leading technology company, we of course understand completely the importance of strong relationships and technical collaboration with leading manufacturers of hardware all over the world. Our rich history of bespoke integrations with other leading software companies such as Google and Microsoft means we will continue to remain at the heart of this ecosystem for years to come.
