    SignStix® has formed a partnership with Toshiba to provide an end-to-end digital

    engagement solution to the retail and hospitality sectors.


    SignStix® is a Toshiba Innovation Partner for Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions, helping

    retailers to build digital engagement solutions that are fully scalable and built to drive customer

    engagement and enhance in-store customer experiences.


    By combining SignStix®’s digital signage software expertise with Toshiba’s impressive portfolio of

    innovative in-store solutions, support, and systems integration services for the retail sector, this

    relationship allows SignStix® to operate across a global market, whilst supporting existing digital

    engagement projects.


    The partnership successfully eliminates many of the perceived barriers to the adoption of digital

    engagement, as it looks to simplify the delivery of a retailer’s in-store strategy through a fully

    supported implementation process. SignStix®’s digital engagement platform, which comprises an

    intuitive signage creation tool and management dashboard, can now be delivered under the

    Toshiba and SignStix® offering, in addition to Toshiba’s new range of professional display screens,

    global support, training maintenance and services.


    SignStix® and Toshiba are currently working on joint solutions for a number of in-store projects.


    “The partnership between SignStix® and Toshiba brings an unrivalled offering to the retail

    marketplace,” said Nick Fearnley, Founder and CEO of SignStix®.


    “Toshiba’s capability to deliver our platform alongside their leading-edge hardware and service

    solutions means that digital engagement can quickly become a real world revenue earning

    component in any retailers kit-bag.


    “Our combined approach brings retailers solutions, not more problems - which is something typical

    of other legacy digital platforms.”


    SignStix® has also been awarded a ‘Solution Provider Excellence Award’ at Toshiba’s annual

    Together Commerce Alliance Awards in Riga Latvia in April 2016, which celebrate the work and

    expertise of Toshiba Business Partners.


    “Our annual awards are presented to recognise our most successful and innovative partners like

    SignStix®, who have distinguished themselves as achievers at the very highest level during the

    last business year,” comments Darren Holland, UK Sales Director at Toshiba.

    Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) May 09, 2016


    In Las Vegas at the Digital Signage Expo 2016, Videotel Digital created a stir resulting in phenomenal interest for their newest product. The SENSE Solution captured the attention of passersby who, when lured in by an inviting video, walked closer to the leading manufacturer’s booth. This engagement signaled SENSE to trigger new specialized images that “talked to” them about Videotel’s newest signage solution. Garnering the power twins - customer engagement and dwell time - the company’s reps say, SENSE conquered by way of unavoidable interactivity.


    Lisa Schneider, VP of Marketing and Sales at Videotel said of the show-stopping interactive signage solution, “What a great place to prove the capability of this product at the digital signage industry’s biggest annual event. We knew we were on to something when attendees lingered completely engaged by the futuristic component of this digital signage proximity sensor. SENSE is a game-changer because it optimizes the viewer’s experience in a conversational way.”


    With its ability to know proximity, and use it to an advantage, the SENSE interactive digital signage solution has a Smart Sensor that detects human distance. Useful for a display, kiosk, end cap, or a venue’s general area, users can loop an “attract” video until someone approaches. When the desired distance from the display screen is reached, SENSE will trigger a different video with more informative content.


    Targeting areas that are frequented, of special use, and in need of sensory digital signage, SENSE provides a human aspect to exhibits. It will even say goodbye when the viewer walks away from the interactive video display. The programmable SENSE Solution IR sensor has a sensitivity range of between three and eighteen feet. SENSE is used in tandem with the VP71XD Interactive Digital Signage Player. Together the digital signage media player and sensory solution retail for $493.

    Multi-award-winning digital engagement platform SignStix® will release a radically updated version of its cloud-based Director software in the next couple of months. Already renowned to be one of the most user-friendly and scalable platforms on the market, SignStix® has stepped up its cloud-based offering with a range of exciting new features in addition to a mobile-first design overhaul.

    SignStix® Director, which allows users to manage and deliver digital signage content and interactive campaigns, has been redesigned to facilitate a smoother, cleaner workflow, with a heavy focus on user experience and accessibility.

    The new version of SignStix® Director, also known as Director V.3, builds upon the existing features which existing clients have grown to love, whilst incorporating a mobile-first, fully responsive interface. This will provide users with the ability to effortlessly manage, edit, schedule and deploy content from any device including smartphones and tablets.

    In addition to the all-new responsive interface, Director V.3 will also adopt a fresher, lighter design for added simplicity.

    Nick Fearnley, Founder and CEO of SignStix® describes Director V.3 as “really exciting,” saying:

    “We’ve seen a substantial increase in enterprise-level deployments recently at SignStix®. Director V.3 has been developed in partnership with enterprise clients to enable a much more efficient way of managing assets and deployments in the system.”

    This more efficient way of managing assets includes the addition of search filters and tags, as well as improved general navigation. Content created by users can now be filtered under labels such as ‘Preset’, ‘Sign Length’ and ‘Created By.’

    Nick added: “Director V.3 forms the foundation of what we’re sure will become the most substantial digital engagement platform available on the market today. Only a year ago, SignStix® was really only digital signage, however, with deployments spanning everything from smart devices, screensavers, kiosks, right through to the largest video walls and interactive applications – it has become so much more.”

    The upcoming launch of Director V.3 will mark the first of a phased rollout of the programme, with new features being released every quarter as part of SignStix®’s on-going programme of quality and usability improvement.

    PJSC is pleased to announce that it will co-host the first annual “Pulse of the Industry: DOOH" Teleconference with Verifone Media on Wednesday, May 11, 2016 at 11 a.m. ET.

    Led by Verifone Media General Manager Paul Jankauskas and PJSC’s Mark Boidman, the teleconference is intended to foster a unique and in-depth discussion of the DOOH challenges and opportunities industries and brands face today, along with key trends driving the DOOH Revolution. The 45-minute session will include an open forum for Q&A.


    “We’re at a turning point with DOOH, overcoming many of the industry factors that once worked against us,” said Paul Jankauskas. “As consumer lifestyles and purchasing habits continue to evolve, DOOH is emerging as a critical component of the overall advertising mix, reaching the right consumer, at the right time, in the right place.”


    “With connected consumers engaging more and more in DOOH media and signage nearly everywhere outside of their homes, the industry has huge growth potential,” said Mark Boidman. “Geolocation-based media and tech is revolutionizing DOOH and amplifying mobile media campaigns.”

    DOOH media has emerged as a growing medium among global consumers; captivating a larger audience at an impressive rate. According to PQ Media, consumers were exposed to DOOH media for 14 minutes per week in 2013 – a 75 percent increase from eight minutes in 2007. Brands are starting to see a direct correlation between digital signage and sales, with Infotrends reporting that it can add an upswing in overall sales volumes by nearly 32 percent.


    The teleconference is expected to include among its participants company executives and owners, agency professionals, advertisers, suppliers and media covering retail, c-store, petroleum and digital signage, as well as members of the broader digital media audience.

    Information to access the teleconference will be released later this week. Further information is available online at pjsc.com/DOOH-pulse-of-the-industry .

    Installation and Service Technologies (IST), based in Prairie Village Kansas, was a recent sponsor of a Hole-in-One Contest at the 2016 Digital Signage Federation Golf Tournament held in conjunction with the Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada March 15th.


    During the tournament, one participant at the tournament made a shot that landed 17 inches from the hole. This was close enough to cause great excitement, but not close enough to win the $5,000.00 prize.


    Instead, IST, a leading provider of onsite service, installations, roll-outs and repairs for digital signage and digital menu boards, donated $500.00 to the Geri Wolff Scholarship Fund. Holly Johnson, IST’s Business Development Manager, who led the qualification team at the tournament made the announcement of the donation at the conclusion of the tournament.
