NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/12 -- National Retail Federation Convention -- Fujitsu today announced the availability of its popular Digital Media Network (DMN) service in North America. This award-winning and highly flexible solution for bringing multimedia and digital display advertising in-store has seen steady adoption across Europe and Asia Pacific for over a decade. Now North American retailers can use the same versatile communications platform to enhance their retail environment and influence customer behavior by providing and managing high-quality imagery across a range of display technologies, from the smallest retail LCDs to the largest LEDs. Fujitsu will offer a comprehensive demonstration of its Digital Media Network offering at the National Retail Federation's (NRF) Big Show in New York, January 16-17.
"Digital Media Networks have proven their ability to cost effectively drive revenue growth, but the complexity of managing digital media campaigns, delivering the right content to the right location, and aggregating third-party advertising has reduced the net benefits and slowed adoption of the technology in North America," said Brian Yates, Director of Retail Product Marketing at Fujitsu America. "Fujitsu's Digital Media Network offering gives retailers the tools and services they need to optimize the effectiveness of their digital media advertising campaigns and increase revenue as well as customer satisfaction and loyalty."
Fujitsu offers three Digital Media Network service tiers to support each retailer's in-house campaign management capabilities:
- DMN Solution Implementation provides just the necessary software and hardware platform with a standard range of support services, allowing for full campaign execution and control by the retailer.
- DMN Operational Managed Service adds end-to-end digital content scheduling and a remote distribution service running from a state-of-the-art Fujitsu data center.
- DMN Creative Operational Managed Service is the most complete offering, including content creation and management.
- Cost effectively and dynamically inform and inspire customers.
- Increase revenue by providing relevant, real-time information and offers to consumers at the point of purchase, where most buying decisions are made.
- Develop new revenue streams through the sale of advertising space to partners and suppliers, with easy and accurate billing.
- Improve customer dwell time and loyalty through highly targeted information, discounts and rewards.
- Make more effective use of marketing resources by targeting offers more accurately and lowering print costs.
- Enhance operational agility by rapidly adjusting offers to address changing market conditions and customer needs 24/7, while also freeing up staff for other activities.
- Improve decision making by integrating digital media advertising management with CRM applications, such as the Fujitsu CustomerCENTER(TM) and OLCAS systems.
