The Covid-19 has accelerated the trend, the idea of working from home are opted to taken by an increasing number of people in the past two years.

Ideal as it were, some doubts were raised on if the productivity can still be maintained at the same level compared to work in the office.

But you have no idea too, so both of you went to find the car key…
 
Scene #3:

- Solution -

The SyncSign Display can sync with your calendar, and have all your daily schedule displayed on the screen. 

Turning digital signage into a kind reminder, making sure that your family members, friends, and roommates don’t interrupt you while you’re busy. Delivering a clear message of your daily schedule to others.

Use it to improve work efficiency is just benefit one. More importantly, it serves as a tool for effective communication with others. Little investment with high return. 

The ideal state of working from home is to find a work-life balance. With this in check, you don’t need to explain to others what you are or about to do over and over again. 

- Some Other Use Cases -

Serve as a notice board, just type some information via the SyncSign Web Portal/App. 

House chores would be a good way to educate the children with the responsibility and the virtue of work. We can have the task assigned in the family reunion. But you cannot expect everyone to note down all the tasks, that’s why a notice board would help. Have the tasks displayed on the E-ink paper
– Water the flower-Emily
– Wash the car-John

This will be an effective relationship builder tool for your family. Includes all the family members together while getting the house chores done.
