MONTREAL — September 19, 2013 — Haivision today announced that Musimundo, one of Argentina’s largest retail chains, has deployed Haivision’s CoolSign digital signage solution to deliver dynamic content throughout its network of 200 stores.
Specializing in home appliances, electronics, and entertainment products, Musimundo recently launched a multi-layered, in-store marketing channel (M! Channel) with strategic advertising and production. The M! Channel fuses video, brand awareness, dynamic content, and both in-store and collaborative promotions.
To control and distribute content throughout its network of stores, Musimundo partnered with Congress Sales, a local digital signage managed solutions provider. To easily manage and schedule dynamic content for Musimundo to 30 video walls, 700 commercial LCD displays, and 3,000 LCD TVs, Congress Sales leveraged the scalable and flexible architecture of Haivision’s CoolSign.
CoolSign has given Congress Sales and Musimundo the ability to create and edit dynamic content very efficiently, providing extensive flexibility in changing advertising and promotional content. This managed solution from Congress Sales, gives Musimundo a more effective way to get timely, accurate and targeted product information and messaging to consumers, which has increased sales, bolstered brand loyalty, and improved the overall in-store shopping experience.
“With CoolSign, we were able to provide a powerful solution with straightforward management tools so we can easily administer Musimundo´s digital signage,” said Luis María Gonzalez Lentijo, CEO for Congress Sales. “Additionally, the system’s unique scheduling options allow us to work around Argentina’s bandwidth challenges.
