Signagelive showcases Lift and Learn technology at Integrate 2017 in Melbourne

In this video from the recent Integrate show in Melbourne, Australia, Aferdita Qesku, Sales Director Global at Signagelive, demonstrates how IAdea digital signage hardware and Signagelive can be used to deliver ‘Lift and Learn’ solutions for retail.

Signagelive exhibited at Integrate with Quantum Sphere, to showcase solutions and products to AV technicians and corporate end users, meet with buyers, integrators and distributors in the Australian retail sector.

In the example shown, when beauty products are lifted from the shelf the appropriate video explaining the product is displayed. When multiple products are lifted from the shelf, a comparison video is shown allowing the viewer to compare and decide which product is for them.

Lift and learn applications is a great way to let customers find out more about your best sellers or to compare different items before deciding which one to buy. Customers are provided with more information about the product they are looking at, this could be anything from the price, to a story about the product, or the other options available within the store of that product (maybe a different size or colour) and where these can be found.

Another example of Signagelive’s SoC and HTML5 software, with integrated support for interactive applications, has allowed Dermalogica to cost effectively deploy a “Lift and Learn” concept in its newer stores and carry out targeted campaigns about its flagship product range in an engaging way.

Digital ATM Toppers powered by Signagelive

bank_FRont_ATM

How did ATMs evolve?

This year is the 50th anniversary of the first ever ATM in the UK. Cash machines have been around since its launch at the Enfield branch of Barclays Bank on 27 June 1967. In the US Chemical Bank installed its first ATM in 1969 in New York.

The original thinking for ATMs was that banks needed to setup branches at the most convenient locations for its customers, even if that was in very remote locations. Creating a new branch had many costs – space, people, electricity, maintenance etc. however, most of the transactions that took place in the branch were taking cash out and checking of balance – so ATMs were introduced.

The phase of cost savings has now passed and the next logical step is looking at ATMs as a strategic location to generate revenue, create effective communication and new leads.

What is a Digital ATM Topper and what can it be used for?

Generate revenue

Technical challenges and high capital and operating costs used to limit deployments of what are generally called “ATM toppers.” But those barriers have been eliminated, and the use of digital ATM toppers above retail cash machines and in the lobbies of banks is growing increasingly common.

ATM_topper

Effective communication

Digital ATM toppers are eye-catching and can hold the attention of a viewer far longer than newspaper, radio or TV ads. A digital ATM topper can advertise one product or many and you can be assured that the message is getting to your advertiser’s prospects.

Financial services companies are using digital ATM toppers in a variety of ways. Banks use those customer moments in ATM environments to drive branding messages to build affinity and loyalty with existing customer’s, and conversion among consumers who normally use other banks.

Interactive digital signage can encourage visitors to request a callback to get more information about the offering. Also, digital ATM toppers can keep repeatedly informing visitors about the importance of PIN security, passwords etc.

ATM_topper_ad_cafe

Create new leads

For independent ATM network operators, which places ATMs in targeted venues e.g. convenience stores, restaurants and bars, hotel lobbies and public spaces, the focus is more on local marketing and third-party advertising to create new leads.

Messaging on screens can range from a local fuel company promoting charcoal or gas refills during the summer barbecue season, to local pubs using available screen time on their ATM to drive that day’s food and beverage specials.

Retailers/Merchants can quickly create and schedule content playlists to promote food products that reflect the time of day e.g. coffee and cake in the afternoon or pizza and beer in the evenings.

A great example of a digital ATM Topper project powered by Signagelive is the Coffman Media solution for International Cash Systems LLC. A purpose-built digital signage solution was designed for their ATMs to encourage impulse purchases in retail stores and quick serve restaurants to increase revenue use of the ATMs and revenue for the venue. The case study including a video can be found here.

Save the date – Integrate, Melbourne, 29-31 August 2017

QS_stand_img2b (1)media-20170801

Integrate is Australia’s leading trade event for the AV, IT Systems and Live Event industry and returns to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, 29-31 August 2017.

Key international speakers include Signagelive, who are exhibiting with Quantum Sphere, to showcase solutions and products to AV technicians and corporate end users, meet with buyers, integrators and distributors in the Australian retail sector.

Global Sales Director of Signagelive and key speaker at Integrate, Aferdita Qesku, highlights the global dynamic digital signage market is growing up to 40% year on year, and numerous research reports into the industry have projected worldwide sales to reach over $20 billion by 2020.

Human nature will continue to demand more innovative and interactive things – we’re seeing this already with the link up of IoT which has been around for years but now actually being used for and in digital signage.

If you would like to find out more from Aferdita please contact her on aferdita@signagelive.com

Another key speaker is Gary Kayye, Founder of rAVe Publications

I think he most exciting thing in retail right now is voice control. The ability to talk to your home, your car, your phone, is a game-changer and certainly Amazon is leading the way with their Alexa via ECHO but watch-out as Apple is coming with theirs too.

AV technology like digital signage, can make the FOH (front of house) smaller and allow BOH (back of house) to be larger. BOH is a lot less expensive to build and maintain than FOH. With digital signage, we can allow people to see the item, interact with the item and even try it on virtually, eventually, without having to stock it all out front.

Integrate_2018

About Integrate:
Now entering its ninth year, the event is a hub of activity for local and global brands to showcase solutions and products to AV technicians and corporate end users, meet with buyers, integrators and distributors.
