The Screenly Countdown Timer Edge App does exactly what it says it will with a simple and elegant presentation. The Countdown Timer Edge App is one of our most recent additions to our Edge App store, and we have already seen customers deploy this Edge App for a variety of exciting use cases. Learn more below on how you can use the Screenly Countdown Timer Edge App in your business.

Quickly and easily deploy a countdown timer

While there is nothing technically complex about a countdown timer, DIY solutions for displaying one on a digital sign can get messy. For example, without our Countdown Timer Edge App, users would have to explore countdown timer video content. This video content can get the job done, but users have to deal with sizing and resolution issues. Another difficulty that comes with this method is the video content resetting at the end of the timer. With our Countdown Timer Edge App, users can easily set the ending time stamp, and they are ready to go.

Provide useful context

Of course, countdown timers count down to a particular event. Without this context, the countdown time can be confusing and irrelevant to people passing by. The Screenly Edge App Countdown Timer allows users to add a headline description easily. This headline ensures that everyone knows what the countdown timer is about and can find this content useful.

Work across timezones

The Screenly Countdown Timer Edge App works seamlessly for international deployments. The Countdown Timer will operate off of the local time zone for the individual screen, and users can also override the timezone to have it work with a particular desired timezone.

Build team motivation on upcoming deadlines

Our Countdown Timer Edge App is great for building motivation surrounding upcoming deadlines. These deadlines can include the end of a sales quarter or even smaller timelines like a deadline to fulfill an order. When everyone can see how much time is left, this can be both motivating and fun for team members.

Get teams focused on an upcoming date

In other cases, our Countdown Timer Edge App can be used to build excitement around upcoming launches or debut days. For example, users can deploy the Countdown Timer to keep teams aligned on product launches, podcast releases, and big company announcements.
