James Island Goes HI-TECH!

The James Island board votes to adopt new digital signage technology from Messenger Sign, LLC.

James Island, a premier gated community in the Jacksonville area announced today the forthcoming installation of its new MessengerSign TM.  Board President Murat Tiryakiogklu said “Informing our residents of important events, activities and services is vital in a close-knit community like James Island. With 365 homes, making sure everyone is aware of important announcements is a challenge.” Communications chair Jennifer Speicher agrees. “This new technology will be a wonderful way to communicate daily with the residents. I’m excited to be able to instantly update our Messenger Sign from anywhere.  Messenger’s system frees us to deal with only the content of our sign. While some may say this is just a status symbol for high end communities and it may indeed enhance the appearance of our community, effective communications will be the real benefit.” Christina Goodenow, marketing manager for Messenger said “We are very excited to be working with a community like James Island. It’s gratifying that they were willing to try this new technology. While proven in the retail and hospitality markets, digital signage is just starting to take hold in the property management space. We’re confident that more and more communities will see the light and go digital!”
