Open Text Works with Capital Networks to Expand Corporate Communications Network


Open Text has expanded their corporate communications digital signage network to include six new locations using the Audience software platform provided by Capital Networks Limited. With installations already deployed in the U.K. and Canada, the latest deployments include Ottawa (Canada), Reading (U.K.), Tallahassee (U.S.A.), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Sydney (Australia) and Hyderabad (India).

With offices located across 6 continents, Open Text wanted a corporate communications network able to distribute 24 hour information to employees spread across the globe. The other essential component was that each location would have the ability to display a combination of hyper local, location specific information as well as global information to be displayed at all locations.

Screens displaying a variety of video, text and graphic content have been installed throughout the public areas of the various Open Text offices. The Audience software platform was chosen to power the corporate digital signage network and is responsible for the creation, management and scheduling of content which includes company branding, local and international corporate updates and a variety of automated data feeds provided by Capital Networks.

Blake Reeves is the North American Partner Channel Manager at Capital Networks: “In the case of a global project such as this, part of the process was to offer the client as simple a solution as possible while still being able to provide them with a flexible, highly scalable product needed for ongoing expansion. As a result, Capital Networks is supplying Open Text with a true turnkey solution by shipping pre-configured hardware, complete with a standardized show, ready to run right out of the box. Once installed, each office has the ability to insert their own content and the option to personalize their show by displaying data feeds in the native language of the location”.
