Ryarc is a software company with a vision for the digital signage industry. That vision sees the usability and power of office-like applications, brought to Digital Signage. We think its not a moment too soon. It is our view that the digital signage software that has been on the market till now has failed its customers. Some of the reasons for this have been simple; poor design, proprietary formats and unreliable technology. Other reasons include the 'Swiss army knife' approach with some products that try to do everything: content creation, management and scheduling etc. and invariably falling short in some or all categories.
