Let’s jump in and compare who has the better features and the best price. We’ll be looking at features that matter to business owners, such as ease of use, customer service, integration with software, group options, and many more. 

Without further ado, here are the biggest differences between Display NOW and Raydiant.

Ease of Use

Both Display NOW and Raydiant are designed with ease of use in mind. With either system, a person should be able to easily display well-designed digital signage on nearly any screen. Business owners will be able to control all screens from their fingertips using any tablet, computer, or smartphone. 

Display NOW is proven to work across all platforms, whether a person is using Windows, iOS, an iPhone, or Android. Additionally, the Display NOW Digital Signage Player App will work right out of the box for any Google TV or Amazon Fire TV.

Display NOW offers a centralized hub where you can effortlessly control all your screens from one place. Whether you need to check the current content being displayed, modify playlists, or even remotely control individual screens, it's all at your fingertips. The user-friendly interface allows you to pair your screens seamlessly and provides an intuitive overview of their statuses, ensuring you're always in the know. 

Customer Service

With Raydiant, clients are another number in a large corporation. When clients need help, they may get placed on hold and placed in a queue. If a user's screens or systems go down, it might be a while until it can get fixed.

Display NOW has the best customer service in the industry. A personal touch goes a long way. Customers are not waiting in queues to speak to operators. Instead, Display NOW will speak to you in any way you would like: web chat, phone, email, text, or WhatsApp.


Today, the gold standard of image and graphic design is Canva. This website boasts millions of daily users. These are business owners or social media managers looking to create impressive, eye-catching displays. Raydiant has some internal tools; however, it doesn’t integrate with Canva.

Canva and Display NOW seamlessly and easily integrate with each other from the first day you register. Create brilliant designs in Canva, and in just a few clicks, it will be displayed on your screen. The Canva website and manager.displaynow.io communicate with one another to make it as easy to use as possible.

Display NOW goes above and beyond when it comes to content variety and customization. Imagine bringing your screens to life with engaging visuals and dynamic information. By linking Display NOW with Google Slides, you can effortlessly update content without any additional effort. 

Need to showcase the weather conditions? Display NOW has you covered with a Weather app that allows you to display current and future forecasts. You can also upload your own images to showcase menus, announcements, animated graphics, and so much more. And let's not forget about videos – Display NOW supports them, too, enabling you to captivate your audience with captivating motion content. 

Group Options

If you are a manager or business owner, you don’t have to put all the work on your own shoulders. You can easily delegate and work in large groups with Display NOW. Display NOW takes collaboration and delegation to a whole new level with its ingenious Group feature.

By inviting members to your Group, you can delegate responsibilities and let others help manage the screens, freeing up valuable time in your day. Group members don't even need to have a paid subscription themselves, making it incredibly inclusive and cost-effective. 

They can have full control over the items shared within the Group while the owner retains control over the subscription. With Display NOW's Group feature, collaboration becomes seamless, efficient, and tailored to your business’ specific needs.

Groups is also great for those that want to resell the solution as a Partner. It gives Partners the flexibility to have customers be billed directly, or you can bill them and consolidate multiple customers on one bill for yourself. Simply put, the owner of a Group owns the underlying subscription. 

When you sign up to be a Partner, you get a dedicated referral link that you can give customers and you can earn commissions on recurring sales. Your customers can create a Group and invite you to help manage their account should they choose. As a Partner, we also offer co-branding!

Either way - Groups give you the flexibility to setup and manage your digital signage software in a way that works for you.


When it comes to the price between Display NOW and Raydiant, it’s not even close; Display NOW is the victor. Raydiant goes out of its way to try and hide its price. According to sources, Raydiant will begin at $59 for just one screen per month.

With Display NOW, a user can get started for as little as $4.99 per month (billed annually, with 20% savings included) for one screen. That price even includes cloud storage for your media. But the best part is that Display NOW offers a free trial period. Display NOW does not hide its prices. 

Although, if you want to be billed monthly, just ask!
