London June 2018 – RMG Networks, a global leader in technology-driven visual communications solutions, has announced a preferential technology partnership with Elo, a global supplier of state-of-the-art touchscreens. Together, both global brands provide transformational interactive digital signage solutions. As a certified solutions partner, RMG offers digital signage software that is in synergy with Elo hardware technology.
Interactivity is key to unlocking effective customer experiences and sales strategies. Interactive retail displays provide customers with experiences that help retailers build the relationship while increasing sales. According to McKinsey studies, 70% of buying experiences are based on how the customer feels they are being treated. Interactive signage makes the customer journey as easy as it is entertaining. Providing product or other relevant information through well designed touch interfaces or gamification will help the consumer enjoy their in-store shopping or hospitality experiences, resulting in higher conversion and satisfaction rates.
With the 2017 launch of Korbyt®, a cloud based and hyper-intuitive digital signage content management system (CMS), RMG has set out to provide the leading platform to power up the creation and implementation of highly immersive and impactful interactive digital signage applications for a number of key sectors such as retail, hospitality, education, transport and health care. The platform is also specifically built to support and enable enterprise-wide visual internal communications strategies.
By combining the strength of Korbyt as a powerful CMS engine with the image quality, impeccable reaction speed and sleek modern design of the Elo touchscreens, both companies deliver a market leading digital signage solution. Together next generation hardware and software meet to enhance the viewer’s experience with the user’s message and enable the execution of almost any creative experience design. The Elo line of touchscreen signage includes sizes from 10 to 70 inches, making it easy to find the right size for any application. Using only commercial grade components, the screens are built to last in demanding public environments.
Every day, thousands of people and many global Fortune 100 brands rely on Elo screens as a highly effective communication vehicle, creating a bridge between brands, consumers and employees alike.
