ScreenCloud Post

Organizations invest a great deal of commitment to fostering strong internal communication strategies and branding guidelines. Innovative solutions can encourage and support employee engagement, whether the focus is information-sharing, culture, management, or cross-functional projects, ScreenCloud’s digital signage can help bridge the gap in streamlining what’s most important for your teams.

The ScreenCloud Microsoft Teams app allows you to reach your workforce with branded engagements, personalized interactions, and key data. The app can share your Microsoft Teams posts as a plain text, video, image or an automatically generated QR code for documents or links. This will allow you to:

  • Display you content quickly on your digital screens
  • Run Teams channels along with other media, apps, and scheduled content
  • Digitize your employee communications and experiences
