Adaptive IP Services, Inc
By Meredith Knight
David Boggs has the perfect barometer to judge whether a concept is too “techy” for the average layperson—his wife. “If she gets it, I know it’s good to go,” he said. “If she doesn’t, I know I’m being too technical.”
The IT world has always come easy to David and throughout his career working for other people, he seemed to have the Midas touch with project after project. One in particular made him realize it might be time to head out on his own. “I was working for a Fortune 500 company,” he said. “We’d invested almost a million dollars in a digital signage solution but it was too complex for most of the employees to operate.”
David created a simple drag-and-drop solution so signage screens could be updated as often as desired and by almost anyone. A friend of the CEO came by the office to see what he’d done and right away wanted David to do the same for his company.
But leaving a well-paying corporate position was still scary. “My wife and I spent four or five months just praying and seeking God’s guidance; asking, “Is this something You want us to do?’” he said. After hearing from the Lord, they spend a year and a half working on their presentation, another 18 months testing out their model, and finally launched Adaptive IP Services in January of 2016. Originally set to offer a range of IT services, they realized they could provide more value to businesses by only concentrating on offering a premier digital signage delivery system that’s easy for almost anyone to use from almost anywhere.
What is digital signage? It’s something you’ve seen; probably used but just didn’t have a name for. “Adaptive Digital Delivery Solutions is a form of electronic display that shows television programming, menus, information, advertising, and other messages,” David said. “Digital signs are found in retail stores, hotels, restaurants, and corporate buildings.”
You might see one of David’s digital screens at a restaurant displaying pricing, photos of menu items, ingredients, nutritional facts, and other food information. And with the Adaptive IP system, employees of that restaurant can make menu updates with a simple drag and drop. You might see his signage on the floor, walls, or ceiling of a museum. You could see them in an airport broadcasting news, weather and local, location-specific information, such as fire exits, and traveler updates.
Corporations can use digital signage for corporate messaging, health & safety news, brand recognition, and to help reduce preserved wait times when their customers waiting in queue.
“Our goal was to take the complexity out of digital signage,” David said. “Our customers can make changes to as many locations as they want, by simply going to our online portal. Once there, they can pull content from an existing website or drag and drop a file into a Dropbox folder and the content will automatically display on their digital signage screens at as many locations as they indicate. We work with customers from conception to design to implementation, and continue to work with our customers by providing support and consultation post installation”. And by thinking innovatively, Adaptive IP Services is able to save their clients a bundle.
David and his wife, Mary, are active members of the community. Mary stays busy helping out at their kids’ school and volunteering with Girl Scouts. They’re both active at Frisco Bible Church and David supports Alpha Ministries in Africa, Campus Crusade Student Ministries, and Probe Ministries.. “We try to give back wherever we see a need,” David said. “The Lord has blessed us greatly and we want to bless others, whenever He shows us a need.”
