Southern Airways Express brought their vision to
ConnectedSign. They were looking for a cost-effective, easy to manage digital signage solution that allowed multiple templates to be displayed in multiple airports. Each regional airport needed to have its own unique set of data, detailing flight arrivals, departures, and weather conditions. Data accuracy was important; consistent and timely updates of flight status. SAE also wanted to make “on the spot” updates.
ConnectedSign delivered a software solution that
met SAE’s wish list plus some! Crisp, eye-appealing
design was developed. Templates built following
branding guidelines. In addition to regional flight
stats displaying with accuracy, new features were
added. ConnectedSign designed an HTML clipping
weather radar tracker that allows passengers to
visualize regional real time current and forecast
conditions. Templates cycle between arrivals,
departures, and weather conditions. A live RSS feedmat the bottom of the displays provides for news and local even information.
ConnectedSign continues to provide support
to SAE by assisting with updating methods of
inputting data, adjusting template design by
airport, and technical maintenance whenever
needed. ConnectedSign provides assistance
in maintaining SAE’s signage by checking and
testing flight data and ensuring the HTML clipping
remains centered on desired content.
Founded in 2013, Southern Airways Express (SAE)
has experienced tremendous growth based on their
commitment to each individual passenger; their
mantra “Every Passenger, Every Day, Every Flight.”
This mantra has encapsulated SAE’s thinking and
their core values since Day One.
Southern Airways was born from a vision created on
the back of a cocktail napkin. More than that first
sketch of a route map, though, it was the idea that
people will notice and consistently choose an airline
that actually cares about their happiness. And in that
first year of operating two (nine-seat) planes, SAE had
to make sure that every one of those eighteen daily
passengers left happy!
