2014-04-10 16:44:43 - Latest version of the Digital Signage solution available in April – Comprehensive access rights management – Fresh design for the award-winning software
Cologne, April 10 2014 – Software company dimedis aims to set another milestone for the industry with the release of kompas 7.0, the latest version of the acclaimed Digital Signage software. The highlight of kompas 7.0 is its completely revamped access rights management: kompas administrators can create groups, assign roles and grant users specific permissions such as for certain locations or types of content. Thus, kompas 7.0 enables customers to fine-tune user access rights to their individual needs. Another new feature is the ability to conduct bulk operations on displays and PCs, such as changing the business hours for all locations with a single click. And last but not least, with kompas 7.0, dimedis is introducing a fresh design for
its multi-award-winning software.
Patrick Schröder, Division Manager Digital Signage at dimedis, had this to say about the latest version of kompas:
"kompas 7.0 raises the bar for our competition and is the ideal solution for running a Digital Signage network. Our new and improved access rights management makes it easier than ever before to distribute and organise the content management process across multiple users and locations. As ever, we are embracing web technologies, with HTML5 still representing the gold standard for us. What sets us apart is the ease with which interactive content can be embedded into kompas – things like touchscreens or entire kiosk systems, integration with smartphones, remote controls or keyboards. And I am especially glad to be able to present our customers not only with a wealth of new functionality, but also with a fresh look and feel for our software."
