Eclipse Digital Media, a UK Based Digital Signage company provided and installed the Digital Signage solution, comprising of a 32″ ELO Touch Display with integrated PC paired with embed signage digital signage software license and the embed signage Allergy Information Board plugin.

The catering department were looking at different ways to deliver allergy information to their students and staff for their food outlets. They were seeking a contemporary way to engage with their consumers, whilst providing critical information about allergens, as required by EU law.

“The primary objective for us was to increase the availability of crucial information that staff and students of the university require. This information includes vital detail regarding the allergen information of each of dishes on our daily rotating menu.”

The team have continued to provide us with a high level of support including site visits to update us as needed”
