Empowering Digital Signage: Custom communication based on point of sale

At Waapiti, we understand the evolving needs of both system integrators and end clients in the digital signage industry. Our platform offers an advanced user administration system, featuring robust roles and policy support, designed for automated content management and an overall efficient daily operation. This user system allows for custom communication based on each point of sale.

Empowering Individual Location Users

A key feature of our platform is the ability to create ‘Location Group’ users. These users have access to a group of locations within a digital signage project, providing a customized level of control and flexibility. This is ideal for large clients with several locations that have specific needs in their digital communication.

Key Features for Location Users

  • Content Upload: each individual location can easily upload their own content to the digital signage platform. With options for approval workflows, this feature guarantees consistent quality and brand alignment, crucial for automated content management strategies.
  • Dynamic Content Creation with Templates: they can also create captivating animations using the available templates from the main client account. This configurable feature, requiring approval for new content, ensures all displays align with the client standards.
  • Social Media Integration: individual locations can share content directly to their own social media accounts. This bridges the gap between digital signage and social media, crucial for integrated digital communication strategies.
  • Template Variables: template-based content created by the main client can be customized, allowing each individual location to edit certain variables like prices, titles, and languages. That way, the same piece of content has different values across different displays.
  • Open Slots: the main client can define open slots in the content loop, and each location user can fill them with approved content, allowing for a dynamic and responsive content strategy. This feature is particularly useful for clients interested in allowing a certain degree of customization for each of their individual stores.
  • Edit and Publish Calendars: when a certain calendar is used within a certain location group, it is possible for the location user to edit and publish these calendars, ensuring content schedules are precisely managed and relevant to each location.
  • View-Only Access: allow each location user to maintain control and oversight with view-only access to content, channels, and more. This feature is vital for clients requiring a secure overview of the digital signage network.

Unmatched Control and Flexibility for Store Chains

Waapiti’s Location Group functionalities are designed specifically for store chains, offering precise, custom communication based on each point of sale.. This approach ensures that the digital signage content is not only engaging but also highly relevant to each unique location. System integrators and partners benefit from these advanced features, improving the functionality offered to their clients, and enhancing customer engagement and ensuring effective content management in every aspect of their digital signage solutions.

Types of digital signage, make the smart choice

Digital Signage Technology

It’s no secret that digital signage is replacing traditional advertising formats such as paper and billboards. In this post, we’ll talk about the different types of digital signage and how you can choose the right one for your business. We’ll also discuss the benefits of using digital signage and how it can help you achieve your marketing goals.

 

The digital revolution

Advertising channels are rapidly modernising, and multimedia advertising is now the new platform that is dominating every market. Digital screens are filling the space to showcase a new way of interacting with customers. This is what we know as digital signage, an advertising revolution that is here to stay.

 

 

What are the advantages of digital signage?

There are many advantages to using digital signage.

  • It is easy and quick to update and change content.
  • It is possible to target specific audiences with specific content.
  • It can be used to display information in real time.
  • Digital signage is a cost-effective way to reach customers.
  • It is an environmentally friendly way to communicate with customers.

 

It can help businesses

  • In the long term save money on advertising by replacing paper or other traditional advertising methods.
  • Generate more leads and sales by displaying targeted content.
  • Increase brand awareness, positioning and visibility.
  • Improve customer service by providing critical information to retailers, such as shop hours, details of their product offering, generating cross-selling.
  • Increase sales and conversions.

 

Digital signage can also help customers to

  • Reduce waiting times with interactive or informative content.
  • Improve customer experience with targeted content.
  • Increase loyalty and repeat purchases with personalised content.

 

What are the different types of digital signage?

Digital signage can be found both outdoors and indoors and each type has a different purpose.

Outdoor digital signage: Outdoor digital signage is typically used for advertising or branding purposes. It is often placed in high-traffic areas such as bus stops, train stations and shopping malls, and brands also use their storefronts to generate attraction.

Indoor digital signage: depending on the target vertical, it is often used for decorative or informational purposes. It can be found in chain shops, office buildings, retail shops, restaurants and hotels. Indoor digital signage is often used to display menus, directions, shop hours and product information.

 

 

What solutions can I implement?

There are countless options when it comes to digital signage display types, and the right one for your business will depend on your specific needs and objectives. Some of the most common types of digital signage are:

In-window displays: These are usually placed in places of great attraction due to the volume of people passing by and are guaranteed to be attractive as they are a powerful entrance hook along with attractive animated content.
Interactive displays: These displays allow customers to interact with the content, for example, by touch or voice. They can be used to provide information, directions or product details.
Videowalls: these are made up of multiple screens that display video content on each of these screens individually or create a large canvas where, due to the nature of the content to be broadcast, high definition is required.
Digital menu boards: these are electronic screens that display information about products or services as a menu board. They can be used in restaurants, cafeterias and other businesses where customers need information about products.
Product displays: these are digital displays that show information about a specific product. They can be integrated into furniture or within the shop space. They mostly provide information about a product or service.

 

Display formats

There are two main types of displays for digital signage: LCD and LED.

LCD (liquid crystal display) screens are the most common type of digital signage yet LED (light emitting diodes) are gaining ground exponentially. Both can be used in a wide range of environments, such as indoors or outdoors.

LED displays are more expensive than LCDs, but consume less energy and have a longer lifetime.

 

Tips for choosing the right digital signage for your business

The first step is to identify your specific needs and objectives. Once you know what you want to achieve, you can start working out what display formats and strategies you need to achieve successful digital communication.

There are many factors to consider, such as the cost of the hardware, the durability of the hardware, the quality of the image. You also need to think about where you will place the screens and whether it should be weatherproof or not.

There are many factors to consider when implementing digital signage solutions for your business. However, if you take the time to research your options and compare different products, you can find the perfect solution for your needs.

From Waapiti we can help you choose the digital signage screens that best suit your project as well as the cloud platform for digital signage where you can coordinate, manage and execute all the content programming actions in a fast, reliable way and avoiding human errors.

Advantages of Digital Signage for businesses and consumers

Digital signage Company

Digital signage is one of the most powerful and effective means of communication between businesses and their customers. It has revolutionized the way retailers interact with customers, providing them with new opportunities to create an individual customer experience that meets their needs. In this post, we will discuss digital signage for both businesses and consumers, its benefits, effects and success stories. Let’s get started!

What is digital signage for businesses?

Digital signage consists of an electronic screen that displays information, advertising and other communication messages. Businesses use digital signage to communicate with their customers, create a more interactive shopping experience and to promote their products or services in a more attractive way.
Digital signage can be used indoors or outdoors. Outdoor digital displays are typically weatherproof and can be mounted on walls, poles or rooftops. Indoor digital displays are typically smaller and can be placed on counters, shelves, pedestals or kiosks.

How does it work?

A business digital signage system usually consists of a screen, a media player and software. The display is usually a flat screen TV, a monitor, a projection screen or even a Video Wall. The media player plays video, images and other content stored on a memory card, USB drive, computer or from the cloud itself. The software is used to create and manage the content played on the screen.

 

Benefits of Digital Signage for Businesses

The first major benefit is that it helps you save time and money. With digital signage, companies can create and update their content quickly and easily, without incurring the printing and distribution costs of traditional signage. Having the possibility to increase the rotation of creativities,
Another great advantage is that digital signage can be used to target specific audiences with personalized messages. For example, if you know that a particular demographic is interested in your product or service, you can create a specific message for them. This way, you can be sure that your target audience will see and remember your message.
Digital signage also offers the opportunity to collect data about your customers. Thanks to interactive displays, you can collect information on who interacts with your signs, what interests them and how they react to your content. This data can be used to improve your marketing campaigns and ensure that you reach the right people with the right message.

 

Advertising content displayed by companies on Digital Signage

Any type of content can be displayed on interactive screens with image and video being the most commonly used.

  • Product information: companies can use digital signage to display information about their products, such as price, features, specifications and availability.
  • Promotions and discounts: very important is to use digital signage to advertise special offers, sales and discounts.
  • News and events: also to keep customers up to date with news and events.
  • Weather: screens can be used to display local weather information.
  • Directions: businesses can use digital signage to help customers find their way around a store or complex.
  • Emergency information: it is also interesting to use digital signage to display emergency information, such as evacuation routes and meeting points.

 

What is digital signage for consumers?

Digital signage for consumers is a way for businesses to communicate with consumers and provide them with information about their products or services. It can also be used to create a more personalized shopping experience by providing them with just the right information they need. Without incurring in invasive advertising systems.

 

Effects of Digital Signage on Consumers

A study conducted by the University of Cincinnati found that people who saw digital signage were more likely to remember the brand and product than those who did not see the signage. The study also revealed that people who saw the digital signage were more likely to have a positive attitude toward the brand and to purchase the product. So, here are some of the reactions by consumers to digital signage content:
– Attention: grab consumers’ attention and get them to notice a product or service.
– Engagement: Attract consumers and make them interact with the content.
– Memory: Help consumers remember a product or service.
– Emotion: Evokes emotions in consumers, such as happiness, sadness or anger.
– Purchase: Influences consumers to make a purchase.

 

Benefits of Digital Signage for consumers

There has always been talk about the benefits for companies using this type of technology, but what about the end consumer? It is also beneficial for the other side of the equation.
At certain times it can facilitate informed purchasing decisions. Digital signage can also create a more personalized shopping experience by providing targeted content. In addition, digital signage can help consumers remember a product or service, which can influence their purchase. Finally, digital signage can provide games that make waiting times much more enjoyable.

Retail

Interactive displays: immersive experiences at the point of sale

Waapiti

At the point of sale, enhancing the customer experience is critical to increasing sales. One way to do this is by using interactive displays that attract attention and create an immersive experience for shoppers. In this post, we will discuss the benefits of interactive displays and immersive experiences at the point of sale.

 

What do we mean by interactive displays?

Interactive displays are digital screens that can be interacted with by touch, voice or even gestures or movements. They are often used in retail environments to provide information about products, services or promotions. Interactive displays can also be used to create an immersive experience for shoppers, for example by providing virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) content.

In 2018, the global digital display market was valued at around USD 31 billion and is forecast to grow to USD 54 billion by 2025. This rapid growth is being driven by the increasing adoption of digital displays in a range of end-use industries, such as retail, healthcare, education and transportation.

 

Types of interactive displays

There are many types of interactive displays on the market, ranging from simple touch screens to more complex systems that use voice recognition or hand or face gestures.
Interactive displays can be used for a variety of purposes, such as providing product information, displaying digital content (such as videos or images) and even allowing customers to make purchases without having to queue at a traditional counter.

Interactive displays can be used both indoors and outdoors. Outdoor interactive displays are often weatherproof and resistant to the elements. They can be used to provide information about shop hours, promotions or products. Indoor interactive displays are typically found in shops, shopping centres or office buildings. They can be used for a variety of purposes, such as providing branding, product information or interactive content.

What are the advantages of using interactive displays at the point of sale?

There are many advantages to using interactive displays, including:

– Attracting attention: Interactive displays are eye-catching and can help draw customers into a shop.
– Increase customer engagement: Interactive displays can be used to provide information about products, services or promotions. They can also be used to create an immersive experience for shoppers.
– Reduce queuing: Interactive displays can be used to allow customers to shop without having to queue at a traditional counter.
– Improve customer satisfaction: Interactive displays can help improve the customer experience by providing relevant information and content.
-Loyalty and data: Interactive displays can also be used to create loyalty programmes and collect customer data.

 

Why are interactive displays important at the point of sale?

Interactive displays are important at the point of sale for retail because they can help to enhance the customer experience. For example, by using an interactive display, customers can obtain information about a product without having to ask a member of staff. This can save time and make the shopping experience more efficient.

There are a few things to keep in mind when using interactive displays, such as making sure that the content is relevant and that the display is placed in a strategic location. Interactive displays can be a great way to improve customer engagement and increase sales, provided they are used effectively.

 

Immersive experiences at the point of sale

Interactive displays can be used to create an immersive experience for shoppers by providing virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR) content. This can help shoppers enhance the shopping experience.

 

Virtual reality on interactive displays

Interactive displays can be used to deliver virtual reality (VR) content. This can help shoppers visualise products before making a purchase.
For example, if a customer is looking at a dress on an interactive display, they could see how the dress looks on them using VR. This would allow them to try on the dress without having to physically try it on.

 

Augmented reality on interactive displays

Interactive displays can also be used to deliver augmented reality (AR) content. Augmented reality allows consumers to see digital content in the real world.
For example, a customer could see how a piece of furniture would look in their home before making a purchase. This would help them ensure that the furniture is the right size and style for their home.

 

What kind of immersive content can be displayed on interactive screens?

  • Product information: This can help shoppers learn about products before making a purchase.
  • Promotions: Can help shoppers learn about sales or discounts on products.
  • Customer service: Can help shoppers get answers to questions or resolve problems they have with products.
  • Product demonstrations: Can help shoppers see how products work before making a purchase.
  • Interactive games: Can help shoppers have fun while waiting in line or examining products. Interactive games can also help promote products to shoppers.
  • Interactive maps: Can help shoppers find their way around a shop or locate the products they are looking for.

SoC: Intelligent Technology applied to Digital Signage

SoC Display para Digital Signage

Digital signage is a popular way to communicate with customers and employees. A traditional digital signage installation typically includes a display and a separate media player connected to it to communicate with the server and play the media content. However, this is no longer necessary with the advent of SoC technology.

 

What are SoC Displays?

SoC stands for System on Chip. It is a powerful multi-core processor mounted inside the casing of commercial displays that replaces the traditional playback device and its cables.
System on Chip displays are becoming very popular today, both for small and large digital signage displays, and are offered by the leading display manufacturers in the market such as Samsung or LG.
SoC displays come in different sizes, brightness levels, can be used both indoors and outdoors and differ in operating hours.

 

What are the advantages of SoC displays?

First, it is an ALL-IN-ONE digital signage solution. Therefore, it is a much more elegant and tidy installation: it takes up less space, there are no additional cables or metalwork, and ultimately, there are fewer points of failure.
SoC displays are cost-effective. Although the cost of a professional SoC display may be higher than a standard display, the total cost of the installation is usually lower compared to a traditional setup:

  • No separate device to pay for
  • The complexity of the entire installation is reduced
  • Future maintenance is much easier

Some might argue that SoC displays might not be as powerful or reliable as a stand-alone media player.
However, new generations of SoC displays offer great performance and high quality. The latest displays have quad-core processors and run 4k content. They are also very reliable, built to last. Statistics show that SoC reliability in market leading displays is really high and their failure rate is as low as < 0.5%.

SoC displays and power saving

The new generation of SoC displays is extremely energy efficient. One of the main reasons is that they don’t have that extra hardware – the media player – that consumes extra power.
Saving energy is very important for businesses. It’s not only good for the environment, but also for business results and goals.

Security in SoC displays

Data security is of paramount importance and of great concern to both enterprises and customers but with SoC displays you can be sure that your data is safe.
Most SoC displays have a security lock to prevent theft or tampering.
In addition, the content is usually stored on a secure server that can only be accessed by authorized personnel.
SoC displays have a number of security features, such as:

  • Authentication: Authentication is used to control access to content stored on the server. Only authorized personnel can access and play content.
  • User management: User management allows you to control who can access and play content. You can create different user groups with different permissions.
  • IP filtering: IP filtering is a way to restrict access to content from certain IP addresses. This is useful if you only want authorized personnel to access content from specific locations.
  • Logging and auditing: Logging and auditing allows you to keep track of who has accessed and played content. This is useful for security and regulatory compliance.

 

What type of content can be played on an SoC display?

SoC displays can play any type of content that would normally be played on a digital signage display: video, images, animations, RSS feeds, social media feeds, web pages, etc.
The most popular content types are video and images. You can use SoC displays to play short videos or commercials, as well as to create eye-catching image galleries.
SoC displays are also a good way to display real-time information, such as weather, stock quotes or social media feeds.

 

Functionalities of SoC screens

  • Playback of HTML5 content created from templates.
  • Screen partitioning that allows playing more than 1 content simultaneously.
  • Change of content by means of external signals, or ‘triggers’.
  • Playback of bar text or tickertape linked to an RSS feed.
  • Remote control of screen on/off.
  • Support for displaying web content via URL.
  • Possibility of integration of external systems, such as queue management, audience measurement, weather widgets, Co2 meter, etc.

 

Soc displays applied to Digital Signage

Digital signage is one of the most popular applications of SoC displays. SoC displays are more reliable, easier to install and maintain, and offer greater security, as we have seen above.
In addition, SoC displays offer many features that are perfect for digital signage applications.

Content scheduling

Content scheduling allows you to specify when content should be played. This is useful for playing content at specific times or dates.

Playlists

Playlists allow you to create a sequence of content to be played in order. This is useful for creating a loop of content that will play continuously.

Triggers

Triggers allow you to play content in response to external events. For example, you can play a message when someone walks past your screen.

Web integration

Web integration allows you to display web content on your SoC screen. This is useful for displaying information from the Internet, such as weather or news.

Integration with external systems

External systems allow you to display information from other systems on your SoC screen. For example, you can display sales information from your point-of-sale system.

 

Waapiti. Soc technology applied to digital signage

SoC displays are becoming very popular in digital signage solutions because they offer a number of advantages over traditional playback devices. They are more versatile, more secure and easier to install and maintain. If you’re looking for a new digital signage solution, consider using SoC displays for your next project.
