Maverick – the AV division of Tech Data Group – confirms new partnership with Signagelive

Signagelive, digital signage software specialists, confirms new partnership with Maverick, the AV division of multi-national technology distribution company, Tech Data Group. Maverick will be using Signagelive’s cloud-based digital signage applications, including new plug-and-play offerings developed for Samsung’s Smart Signage Platform and Intel NUC, to create all inclusive packages for its channel partner and reseller network across Europe.

Signagelive will be demonstrating its commitment to this new pan European relationship by presenting its digital signage software at a formal event, hosted by Tech Data Corporation, in Barcelona on the 30th September.

Maverick is the specialist audiovisual division of Tech Data and part of Tech Data Group. Tech Data Corporation (NASDAQ GS: TECD) and a Fortune 500 company, is one of the world’s largest distributors of technology products from leading IT hardware and software producers. The company serves more than 125,000 IT solution providers in over 100 countries. Every day, these resellers depend on Tech Data to cost-effectively support the technology needs of end users, including small and medium businesses (SMB), large enterprises and government agencies.

Signagelive is the only company to date that has developed a commercial offering (comprising a library of plug-and-play applications for different verticals) for Samsung’s Smart Signage Platform. As such, Samsung’s new display suite has been configured to support Signagelive software as standard.

No technical expertise is required and digital signage technology users can seamlessly integrate the company’s software with their existing offerings to run dynamic, engaging campaigns at the push of a button. Interactive content can be managed and updated centrally, locally or remotely via different devices including Smartphones, Tablets, or screen remotes.

Targeted information, such as seasonal promotions or nutritional facts, can be quickly displayed on different screen sizes, depending on business type, location or target audience. Furthermore content can be scheduled to dynamically update, depending on factors such as time of day and/or updates to external data sources.
