Digital Screenmedia Association’s Industry Excellence Awards Acknowledge Innovation of BI’s MMS Platform
Salt Lake City, UT– The Digital Screenmedia Association (DSA) presented two Industry Excellence Awards to Broadcast International (BCST.OB) for its “first-of-its-kind” Managed Media Services Network; a digital signage network designed to accommodate the multi-channel marketing needs of financial institutions. The DSA Industry Excellence Awards recognize the best self-service, digital signage and mobile technology deployments across all vertical market segments.
Broadcast International received awards for “Best Financial Services Deployment – Digital Signage”, and “Best Financial Services Deployment – Self-Service / Interactive Kiosks.” Winners were announced during Customer Engagement Technology World in San Francisco, CA on March 27.
Broadcast InternationaI’s Managed Media Services replaces virtually 90% of an institution’s printed marketing collateral with a digital solution consisting of digital signage and posters, tablets, and music with messaging. The network also has the ability to deliver training and internal communications via live video and video-on-demand to associates. The entire solution consisting of software, equipment, screens, network, management, installation, analytics, and field services, is provided as a turnkey managed service with a single point of contact to facilitate ease-of-operations and reduce costs. These services have already been deployed by several financial institutions and retailers, and were showcased at Digital Signage Expo in early March.
Kevin Lawrence, VP Managed Media Services, was in San Francisco to receive the awards. "I'm honored by these two awards from the DSA and appreciate their efforts to promote the digital signage industry through education, networking, and advocacy. We are focused on creating a more interactive and engaging experience for our customers. It is very gratifying to have that work and innovation recognized by some of the most respected individuals in this industry.
