SignStix, a UK-based digital engagement platform, has been shortlisted for the UK Digital Experience Awards for the second year in a row.
Following last year’s award win at the Digital Experience Awards, SignStix® will be competing for the ‘Best Cloud Service’ category once again. The award commemorates SignStix®’s cloud-based software solution, which is being used by a number of global brands, retailers and corporates as a tool to deliver innovate digital experiences.
The UK Digital Experience Awards recognise and celebrate the delivery of an exceptional customer experience through digital media channels. As a vehicle for sharing best practice in digital customer experience, and for promoting continuous improvement, the awards have a particular focus on learning and personal development.
“We are delighted to have been recognised by the UK Digital Experience Awards once again for our hard work and commitment to providing dynamic digital experiences across a range of sectors,” said SignStix® CEO, Nick Fearnley.
“The platform has developed significantly over the past 12 months, which has resulted in a number of global installations and custom development projects.
“Though the award recognises the continual success of our cloud-based platform, we wouldn’t be where we are today without the fantastic work undertaken by our global network of partners.”
Within its official entry – which will be judged and weighted by independent, industry experts from a variety of sectors – SignStix® detailed how its exciting new ‘Special Ops’ initiative and custom development work has helped its clients transform their vision for customised digital experiences into a reality. This level of flexibility and agility within the platform enables SignStix® users to create truly immersive, exceptional customer experiences for their customers.
One of SignStix®’s most notable projects included working closely with leading multi-sport retailer Sun and Sand Sports, to create a digitally-led, one-of-a-kind concept store. Commenting on the success of the project, Sun & Sand Sports’ marketing team said:
“At Sun and Sand Sports, we strive to engage our customers and to be at the forefront of new technology (the digital frontier). SignStix® has enabled us to do just that; with digital content at our fingertips we are able to expand our outreach to all stores across the GCC.”
They continued, “With SignStix® and its user friendly content management system, the process of deploying scheduled campaign videos across multiple screens is quick and easy. Gone are the days of transferring videos to USBs, SignStix® provides a great way to save cost, hours and resources. With SignStix®, the digital signage potential is limitless.”
Earlier this year, SignStix® was also awarded the ‘Solution Provider Excellence Award’ at Toshiba’s annual Together Commerce Alliance Awards.
“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,” said Darren Holland, UK Sales Director at Toshiba.
Some of the new platform features unveiled this year include the ability to build interactive applications without the need to write code, in addition to a new Windows player module for content playback on all Windows devices. Upcoming features include a brand new system-on-chip ‘player-less’ signage offering in collaboration with Toshiba, Phillips and Samsung, in addition to a full redesign of its management and deployment tool, Director.
