The Engagis Staging and Fulfilment Centre (SFC) has been set up to make sure all screens and media players are fully tested before they are deployed to site. We also carry an inventory of spare parts that can be despatched quickly if required.

At the SFC, we pressure test all our recommended hardware for reliability in real world environments. Everything needs to be commercial grade and needs to work reliably in dusty or hot environments and where the ventilation may not be ideal. Plus the hardware must be tested so it can handle continuous usage.

We have a structured and rigorous process for testing our hardware (screens, kiosks, media players), we look for cooling ability, heat output, noise, durability, power consumption, processing/read speeds, solid-state v hard disk, weight, screen resolution, ability to run analytics and mounting options.

This translates into reliability, reduced risk, better performance and reduced TCO – total cost of ownership.

We also test the final content on the screens to ensure it has been created and formatted correctly.

In our blog: “It’s not (just) about the screen”, we explore the importance of staging and testing.
