Hosted digital signage for the post-legalization era
For the last several months I've been working on a hosted digital signage service that uses Google Chromecast to display fully customizable digital signs on screens that business owners already have but may not be using. Everything is drag and drop, with no programming or design required. It's designed to make life easier for businesses by integrating third-party data from sites they already use. Since I live in Oregon, right now that integration is Leafly.

The app currently displays menus, specials, and informational text. While any business that has menus and specials (bars, restaurants, cafes) can manually create and manage menu items and specials, businesses that keep prices and specials up to date on Leafly can get that on their sign in real time with no extra work on their part. At $19/month, is affordable for a wide range of small businesses.

We currently have a small number of local customers, whose feedback is helping to keep improving the product. I've worked on other software products before, but this is the first project that I've really run and managed from inception to getting my first customer. It is still in very active development so any feedback is super helpful. If you have any questions or just want to know more, please hit me up on MeFi mail or I can try to answer you here.

Oh yeah, and use the offer code SEENONMEFI at signup for $5 off your first month!

Pretty neat idea. Though I gotta tell you, your website leaves a lot to be desired. Not just in terms of the design, but also in terms of content. I was hopping to screenshots and photos, documentation, etc... I'd recommend you kick that up a notch.

PS: why the tag cannabis? Checking if people read the tags?

pyro979 We're working on revamping the marketing site over the next several weeks, as I've been working on getting our local pilot customers on board and working on improving the backend, etc. Definitely leaves a lot to be desired, and I really debated putting this out there with a largely placeholder marketing site (most of my marketing to this point has been in-person).

It's also unclear from our website, and I guess from my pitch here (I'm not trying to be coy but at the same time this feature is not available in all markets), but the cannabis tag is because the app is tailored for marijuana businesses. Dispensary owners can import their Leafly (think Yelp for pot) menus and other data and have their displays update in real time at their store.
