QA Graphics Launches New Editable Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard

QA Graphics has released a new Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard for sustainable buildings that offers editable content, graphics and videos. Now the display can provide education about an organization’s green initiatives and can easily be changed to continue to meet the building’s display needs.

Ankeny, IA, April 02, 2010 --( QA Graphics, an industry leader in providing educational solutions and interactive displays for sustainable buildings is proud to announce the development of a new editable Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard that allows the content to easily be changed and updated allowing it to grow and change with the building’s display needs.

The Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard (EEED) is an interactive solution used to showcase an organization’s green initiatives and provide education about how those efforts help the environment. The EEED can be used to educate building occupants, students and the public about an organization’s efficient resource use, green features, carbon footprint reduction, recycling procedures and other sustainable initiatives. The information is presented in a user-friendly format similar to a website, making it easy to use for all ages. Schools, universities, libraries, commercial buildings, government buildings, and restaurants have utilized QA Graphics’ EEED to educate about their green efforts.

The EEED can include a variety of features, such as:

• Resource use shown in real-time
• Calculators to compute resources saved
• Leaderboard comparison among multiple buildings or floors within a building
• Educational demos
• Green features information
• Environmental tips
• LEED checklist
• Current weather conditions
• Interactive quizzes/games

Now, the Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard has been designed to give the end-user the ability to easily change much of the content, images and videos displayed. The user can update the EEED and change the information by using a simple content management system (CMS). Making edits doesn’t require technical skills; users can log into the CMS using a secure password to edit content and upload new images or videos. With the EEED’s new editable capabilities, a variety of new features can also be utilized on the display, allowing the EEED to be used for all of an organization’s display needs. These features include company information, news, a building directory, a calendar, advertisements, donor recognitions and other custom options.

The Energy Efficiency Education Dashboard is offered as a product, allowing the customer to maintain control of their solution without ongoing contracts or monthly fees. It can be displayed on the internet, intranet, and/or a hardware display (touch screen or kiosk). QA Graphics provides a turnkey solution for the EEED; whether it’s displayed online or in conjunction with preconfigured hardware, the solution is truly plug-and play.
