2017 marks the third time in a row that global digital engagement platform SignStix® has been shortlisted in the ‘Cloud Service’ category at the prestigious UK Digital Experience Awards.
The cloud-based platform has previously snapped up Cloud Service Winner at the 2016 Digital Experience Awards, and Cloud Service Silver Winner in 2015.
One of the biggest and most fiercely competitive industry awards, the UK Digital Experience Awards recognise and celebrate the delivery of exceptional customer experiences through digital media channels. With a particular emphasis on sharing best-practice, the awards celebrate only the highest calibre participants and digital projects.
Built from the ground up by a team of technical experts, SignStix® is used by some of the world’s leading retailers, corporates and Fortune 500 companies to create and deliver exceptional digital experiences. The core platform utilises innovative features that enable clients to build virtually any type of digital experience, across any device.
This year’s entry saw SignStix® focusing on the company’s client-focused initiative to foster innovation in digital experiences through their own platform enhancements and software development.
“From the start, we have always sought to develop a feature-rich platform that could provide clients with all of the tools they need for next-level digital interaction in one place,” commented Nick Fearnley, SignStix® CEO.
“Whilst the SignStix® platform is still a perfect fit for typical digital signage use cases, it also has the capability to do so much more. From interactive intranets or customised logistic portals right the way through to data-driven customer experiences, our unrivalled development roadmap enables us to continually set a benchmark for dynamic digital engagement.”
“We were delighted to have our dedication to continually improve our platform recognised last year, when we took home the gold for Best Cloud Service,” Nick added. “But,” he said, “we also knew that we could push the boundaries of what can be achieved using a digital signage platform even further.
“That’s why, since our last award win, our in-house team have spent the past year crafting unparalleled platform enhancements and integration mechanisms that we knew our clients would love.
“All of the dynamic projects we detailed in our entry this year have been built using the very latest SignStix® technology, and each digital experience delivered was a result of the challenge we set ourselves to improve our platform even further.
“It is a special achievement for us to have been shortlisted once again – it’s proof that all of our hard work, and the team’s commitment to help our clients innovate without technical restriction – has paid off.”
Amongst the projects detailed in this year’s entry was a bespoke digital portal for a leading retailer, designed to vastly improve warehouse logistics and fleet management across the entire supply chain network.
Complete with telematics integrations, internal live data feeds and real-time content updates, the solution has been implemented across 600 sites using SignStix’s® core platform for content creation and delivery, using two brand new integration mechanisms.
Both mechanisms allow SignStix® clients to create digital content that adapts programmatically based on live ‘events,’ and will be officially made available to all clients within the next few weeks.
“Our new integration features are a monumental step forward in helping organisations build entirely custom, dynamic digital experiences,” says Nick Fearnley, SignStix® CEO.
“They mark the first major step in our evolution from Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), as we’re now giving clients the flexibility of being able to adapt the SignStix® platform to their exact needs without technical restriction. For this very reason, many of our clients are now referring to SignStix® as an ‘application container’ or ‘wrapper’ due to its integration capabilities.”
“Our methodology – Platform-first – has ensured that innovation in workflow and user interface is continually at the forefront of what we do,” Nick concluded. “We have grown to become so much more than just digital signage – and we’re excited to see what we can achieve next.”

Built from the ground up, it is a user-friendly web-based tool for creating, managing and deploying digital content, video and interactive applications with ease.
