Customization Nation with Sapling Digital Clocks

No matter the product, everyone has different tastes and styles they prefer. Because of this, people really enjoy the ability to customize the items they purchase to meet these preferences. Giving customers the option to personalize their product or service has benefited many different companies in many different industries.

Let’s take the shoe industry as an example. Nike has been wildly successful with the Nikeid option on their website. This option gives their patron the option to customize any type of shoe they want with any combination of colors. The car industry has also jumped on the customization bandwagon. Almost every major car company has an option on their website for their customers to customize the make, model, color, accessories and so much more.

The Sapling Company understands the importance of customization and as the manufacturer of synchronized time systems; Sapling has an array of options to satisfy the broadest of needs. We offer four different synchronized time system options, including: Wired, Wireless, Talkback, and IP. These systems include a master clock at the center of the network and multiple secondary clocks that display the accurate time. The master clock is updated with the accurate time from NTP of GPA, and then sends a signal to the secondary clocks. More specifically within a wireless clock system, the secondary clocks both receive and transmit the signal, until all of the clocks are properly updated.

Within the four systems is the option of what type of clock you would want: analog or digital. If you chose the round analog clocks, then you would get the option of the 12” or 16”clock. Sapling also offers a 9” or 12” square clock for more variety within the analog family. Both the round and square clocks have the additional options of customizable hands and dials!

If you chose the digital clocks, then you would be hit with the brand new color customization display options. While red is the standard color option, you will now have the choice between green, white, amber and blue.
