The UI Housing and Dining (UIHD) group is working with the OneIT Web Hosting project team to migrate their existing fleet of Visix-based digital signs to the new Drupal digital signage platform. UIHD IT Director Brandon Mills commented that he expects to “see both software licensing savings and hardware cost savings” from the migration to Drupal.

Romy Bolton, one of the project leaders for the Web Hosting project agreed with Brandon’s assessment. “We looked at Drupal digital signs primarily with a bend towards reducing licensing costs, but as Drupal enables us to deliver our digital sign service via an Intel compute stick, we’re also seeing cost savings on hardware and even on energy use.”
