Sentry Interactive announces the launch of its 3-in-1 digital front desk display, The Sentry Tower.

Sentry Interactive introduces the Sentry Tower, a premium 55″ freestanding touch screen display that combines a digital receptionist, advanced digital communications, and digital visitor check-in. The Sentry Tower can be installed in any location that has high occupancy or visitor footfall. This may be entrance points or waiting rooms within commercial spaces, hospitality, retail environments, residential, or healthcare facilities.

The Sentry Tower’s digital receptionist provides a digital face to face solution to aid and update users on their daily schedule and provide clear direction to ensure efficient flow around the workplace from a remote location. This can be implemented across multiple locations with fewer full-time receptionists required.

On average it costs up to $260,000 to run a 24/7 front office team of four, for one building per year. By installing one Sentry Tower in a lobby, staffed positions can be replaced to provide a 47% reduction in operating costs with our out of hours digital front office solution.

Cost savings scale, as your business scales. The Sentry Tower allows one person to manage several lobbies on multiple floors or buildings. The payback period can be as short as 90 days.

The Sentry Tower brings people together through interactive digital signage. Displaying internal and external communications. From customizable internal messaging, displaying corporate updates, work events and socials to external brand loyalty programs, news, weather and transport updates, the Sentry Tower successfully educates and engages building occupants with up-to-date and relevant information.

A recent study by Gallup showed that organizations with effective internal communications are 3.5x more likely to outperform those that aren’t. They also found that companies with an engaged workforce are 21% more profitable.

The Sentry Tower’s content can be controlled from anywhere, at any time through cloud-based digital signage software. Upload or modify content 24/7 to ensure events, building information and communications are current. Content can be scheduled to show changes automatically at a particular time making the Sentry Tower perfect your whole portfolio of buildings.

The third function of the Sentry Tower is its automated digital check-in option. By digitizing the check-in process, the Sentry Tower streamlines front desk operations. Sentry Interactive’s system allows guests to check-in and check-out quickly and easily, whilst also providing staff members with real-time information on the volume of visitors in a building at any given time.
