additional information and resources through QR codes that link to websites.

The new bulletin boards feature “upcycled” high-resolution displays and a user-friendly interface that makes it easy
for members of the community to stay informed and engaged. The boards will be strategically located within local
independent businesses in high-traffic areas throughout Alameda, making it convenient for people to access the information
they need and easy for the associations to get information out to the community.

and user-friendly platform enables businesses, artists and organizations to easily share information and effectively engage
our community. Digifli offers a local solution tailored to local residents and businesses.“ said Kathy Weber, Executive Director
