Friskis & Svettis in Lidingö, one of the pioneering Friskis & Svettis facilities in Sweden, has celebrated 40 years of promoting joy in gym and group workouts this year (2022). We spoke with Julia, the Communications Manager at Friskis & Svettis in Lidingö, about her experience using PLAYipp® in her daily tasks.


The Chállenge

Upon joining Friskis & Svettis, Julia found PLAYipp already in place and extremely straightforward to use. Previously, a bulletin board and the website served as the main channels for communication. However, PLAYipp’s digital information screens have enabled faster, more engaging information dissemination.

“The screens offer a remarkably simple method for sharing information. They are incredibly convenient. I can quickly swap images or messages, streamlining the communication process.”

The solution

Strategically positioned throughout the facility, the screens capture the attention of members. A small screen outside each hall also displays the schedule and current sessions.

Integrating PLAYipp with BRP Systems allows Friskis & Svettis to automatically update the digital information screen with the schedule, ensuring members are well-informed about upcoming sessions in each hall.

“At Friskis & Svettis – Lidingö, we plan to continue leveraging PLAYipp screens, likely even more extensively. With the BRP integration, we can now offer our members even more information and exactly what they’re looking for!”

The outcome

Members have positively commented on the screen content, appreciating this modern approach to information sharing. For those not active on social media, the screens serve as an essential source of information, complementing what’s shared on the organization’s Instagram or Facebook pages.

The staff also values the screens, actively participating by suggesting content and ideas for display.


Julia, do you have any advice for those considering PLAYipp digital information screens?

“Just go for it! The process is straightforward and efficient, requiring minimal time and effort while offering significant benefits. Ensure the content is simple and concise to facilitate quick comprehension by viewers.”
