“Do you have a plan in place if your display manufacturer either goes out of business or quits providing certain parts?”


In our environment, we utilize different display types for different applications. We currently use different display solutions from three of the major display manufacturers for our large-format displays. This allows us to maintain good working relationships with all three vendors. One of the benefits of doing this is that each vendor is constantly looking to try to provide better solutions for locations that are not using their brand of display.  I believe this puts us in a great position if a display manufacturer goes out of business or makes changes in their business model that adversely affect the support of their products. By building great relationships with multiple vendors, we can get the best product for our needs and diversify our supply to ensure we never have a shortage of displays.
