Bring Your School
Spirit to Life

FireSign Hall Pass is a digital signage application that brings your WhippleHill Podium content to life inside the halls of your school. With the Hall Pass application, your Podium content is automatically transformed into clear, concise on-campus messaging for your students, parents and faculty.



FireSign has been a WhippleHill Ecosystem Partner since 2004.



Simply enter your Podium account information, and then select the content you would like to present. By accessing the information you already manage within Podium, the FireSign Hall Pass Application creates hands-off digital signage filled with the latest event schedules, news, announcements and sports scores.

The FireSign Hall Pass Application leverages your existing Podium content.

Announcements Display active announcements as featured items
News Display active news items as featured items
Calendar Events Display upcoming events in a daily or weekly view
Athletic Groups Display athletic schedules and results by day

Rally Behind Your Athletic Groups

Hall Pass works with Podium's Athletic Groups to present schedules and sports scores without redundant data entry. As your coaches update the team pages in Podium, FireSign automatically retrieves and formats the data for your digital signage.

Turn Podium Categories into Targeted Messages

FireSign lets you define multiple data sets based on your existing Podium content categories. These data sets may be used to tailor messages for specific locations or audiences, such as an upper campus or visiting parents. Combine data sets with FireSign's advanced scheduling feature to target specific groups down to the minute of each day.
