Happy New Year from Gursikh Sabha Canada! Our new DIS and mobile site are now live. If you find an error, please report it to the front desk or click the 'email developer' link below.


Digital Information System (DIS)

December 23, 2012

We have started working on a new DIS (Digital Information System) at Scarborough Gurdwara. The existing system showcases the daily Hukamnama, public service announcements, and hall programs/functions. An often requested feature is the Hukamnama in English. In order to do bring about this feature, we have implemented the following changes:

• An additional display screen has been hung behind the reception area.
• The new display will show only public service announcements, hall programs/functions, and general information about Sikh history and principles of Sikhism.
• The two existing displays will now show only the Hukamnama - in both Punjabi and English translation.
• In addition, a cross platform mobile web-app has been developed, allowing the sangat to access the daily Hukamnama (in both languages), hall programs/functions, and public service announcements on the go. We are launching with full Android and iOS support, and continue to test on both Blackberry and Windows Phone platforms.

The launch date for the new DIS is New Year's Eve. Stay tuned.
