Visitors of Integrated Systems Europe 2012 can experience and test Scala’s latest development: a new interactive screen communication solution that can be managed through a variety of consumer devices, such as a smart phone, iPad or tablet PC. By scanning a QR code with their smart phone at Scala’s booth K122 in Hall 10 at the RAI Congress Center in Amsterdam, visitors can access a digital display management tool that allows them to choose from various information bundles and determine what is displayed on the playback screens at the stand.
With this new solution, digital signage viewers can determine which specific information they want to receive at that point and moment – allowing companies to micro-target messaging to individuals. Examples of how this technology can be used include customers in stores or banks, employees in a corporate building lobby, students in schools, patients in hospitals, guests in restaurants and more. Visitors to Scala’s ISE booth can too use this interactive solution first hand with participants being entered into a drawing to win an iPad.
Visitors can also test Scala’s Twitter integration, see how interactive screens can transfer a great variety of targeted information and experience how picking up a product from a store shelf can trigger targeted product-related messaging on a screen.
Over the years, Scala has virtually evolved into a central hub for delivering dynamic communication tools, delivering more than just software by meeting the requirements for a total communication solution. That is why the company constantly invites companies who use, or consider using, audio visual tools to reach target audiences to share their challenges in a face-to-face dialogue with Scala and ISE is the perfect platform for those conversations.
“For 25 years, organizations ranging from retail and quick service restaurants to corporate communications, banks, hospitals and education have seen the flexibility and benefits of communicating using Scala’s digital communication,” stated Scala’s new CEO Tom Nix.
“Combining this know-how with our latest developments, I am convinced we can find new ways to help companies to quickly engage and inform their audiences. Many organizations are challenged to find innovative ways to deliver valuable content to target audiences in the short bursts of time available,” continued Nix.
“Scala not only provides a strong, highly usable, incredibly stable software platform that meets 95 percent of the needs of most customers out of the box, it can also be easily customized well beyond many competitive offerings. If end-users or integrators have a question, any question, relating to digital communication, Scala can put them on the right track to cost-effective digital communication solutions!” said Nix.
