- Hughes Network Systems said last week at the Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas that it has teamed with Scala to offer retailers and quick-service restaurants (QSR) turnkey multi-channel retail signage and multi-screen digital menu board services. The new HughesON Digital Media Services allow retailers to quickly and easily enhance their stores by leveraging high-impact video and media across all their locations. In support of the new offerings, Hughes, provider of managed network services and applications, is now a Certified Scala Partner on a global basis.
The new Retail Signage and Digital Menu Board Services combine Scala’s software with Hughes’ video-enabled hardware platforms. The new services are part of a suite of HughesON Media Services which can be deployed with turnkey installation, hosting, field maintenance, content sourcing and financing.
“Today retailers know they must deliver a digitally enhanced customer experience to be competitive, whether to increase revenues or lower costs. Unfortunately, many companies believe digital media solutions are too complex and expensive or that rich-media will bring their networks to their knees,” said Mike Tippets, vice president, Hughes Solutions Group. “Hughes allows retailers to start small and scale up, eliminating upfront capital costs.”
