Campbell United Methodist Church, Springfield, Missouri, recently installed a Daktronics LED sign. “We’re very happy to have a sign that works,” says Misty Brown, church administrator.
Our previous sign from overseas never functioned right and finally went dark.
The sign company had promised to keep the sign up and running, if necessary. But Brown says, “We were on our own. We ended up trying to track down parts we needed.”
Made in the U.S.A.
The church wanted their next sign to be an American-made product with reliable customer service. “People suggested several LED sign providers. But the local Daktronics rep took time to come to join our meetings with the sign company to help answer our questions,” Brown says. “He was very helpful.”
The rep explained that Campbell Methodist could rely on licensed area field techs for after-the-sale support. The church was especially happy to hear about the 5-Year parts warranty that includes phone technical support, parts ordering, onsite labor and preventative maintenance. More support came when the church’s display operator took software training.
Reaching the community
The new sign attracts visitors. “We see new people in our Monday services. We know it’s from the sign and Facebook. Those are the only ways these visitors could’ve known about the special meetings,” says Brown.
Accessing the software from anywhere
The church also uses the sign to promote service times and their social media. “It’s easy to keep the messages fresh when it can be done remotely—you don’t have to be at the church to program the sign,” she says.
The new sign is making it easier for the staff at Campbell United Methodist Church to share their message with the community.
