Watchfire Unveils New Mobile App for Sign Content Management

Cue the confetti cannons!

Today at the ISA Sign Expo, Watchfire Signs celebrates the unveiling of Ignite OPx, a new and innovative mobile application that will revolutionize LED sign content management for owners of Watchfire signs. Ignite OPx will come standard with every new sign purchased beginning April 15, 2015 that uses wireless broadband as its communication method.

With its ground-breaking features, Ignite OPx is the perfect application to manage your internet-enabled digital sign. Designed by Watchfire’s software engineering team, Ignite OPx pairs with our newly updated Ignite OP desktop software to replace and rearrange content playlists, update schedules, and access diagnostic reports from your mobile devices. Together these tools sync automatically and continuously between your desktop and the mobile application. Because Ignite OPx is a web-based application, there is nothing to install and it works with any modern browser on all major mobile platforms. Now you can access your sign’s schedule, content library and sign diagnostics from any device with internet access.

Watchfire sign owners can save even more money and make sign management trouble-free by purchasing Watchfire’s exclusive data plan through Verizon Wireless. Data plan customers buy 3G data at below market prices and enjoy the convenience of reliable service and mobile sign content management.

Watchfire’s newest version of its desktop content management, Ignite OP, features a fresh, updated look and easy-than-ever navigation. Ignite has been the industry’s most user-friendly digital sign content management system for years. The program’s intuitive interface features over 1,000 free still and animated images, which allows novice users to create professional looking messages. For more advanced users, Ignite is capable of creating dynamic content that integrates social media or RSS feed information.

“Ignite OP and the Ignite OPx mobile application were developed together to provide customers with an easy to use mobile version of Ignite. Changes in the app automatically sync to make the management of sign content even easier. We’ve made sign diagnostics more accessible. Now sign owners can adjust messages from anywhere – anytime,” said Dave Warns, Watchfire’s vice president of On Premise Sales. “Ignite OPx brings new technology to the digital sign market and provides the industry’s most responsive and flexible software so that Watchfire customers easily organize marketing campaigns from anywhere.”

Watchfire is conducting demonstrations of Ignite OPx’s capabilities for their dealer partners at the ISA Sign Expo in Las Vegas. Additional training for sign company partners will be provided later this month via an online webinar. Online help and tutorial videos will also be available from within the application.
