Local informations collected with another application
« on: February 26, 2011, 03:18:12 PM »
Hello,
first sorry for my English which is at a little level.

I'm in charge of searching a digital signage system for a large car manufacturer in France.

Screens will be deployed in around 200 points of sales and first for the after sales department.

Every dealer is independent, then they can do different offer for example on tires. One will do a 40 ? rebate on Michelin, one other 30% on bridgestones tires only. Those local information's are collected with an intranet already in place.

My question is : Is there a way to connect DS solution with the intranet to update content on screen instantly or with a few hours delay ?

is it possible to do the same with pictures ?

Regards

Alain

Hello,
Sure, what you are asking for is very basic and our system can do it.
The best way to learn about the system is to first watch the quick intro here:
http://mediasignage.com/html/signage_video.html?videoNumber=StartHere

Also, you can join us for a FREE Webinar this Thursday. It's a great way to learn how to use the system and you can also participate in a Q&A. You can register here:

Hi Eric,
thanks for you quick answer. As you've said, I've watch the quick intro tutorial and didn't find answer to my question. i think I've not been enough clear in my first message. Then I try to make things more clear just bellow:

- Network of around 200 retails
- One brand : Super Cars
- Each shop is independent
- One Intranet is setup by the brand. Each dealer has is own logging and password to access the system. In this intranet, local dealers can setup multichannel marketing campaign (Direct mail, Email, SMS, posters etc ...)
- The brand setup templates and put them in the intranet. The local dealer can only customize certain area of the template. This customization is done through HTML/Ajax forms

Then, we'll like to add a new channel in our system which is digital signage. In this area of the intranet, the local dealer will be able to choose some promotions in a list done by central marketing of the brand (List of promotion : Tires, Free check, Air conditioning etc ...). Each Local dealer can choose the promotion he wants and build is rebate (20%, 20 euros etc ...). Then we collect all theses information's in the brand's intranet.

My question is : We can export all those data's in XML or csv. is it possible to import those data's in the DS system ?

Dealer 1 : has choose tires and Air conditioning campaign. 20% on tires, 30 euros on Air conditioning
Dealer 2 : has choose only tires promotion with a 50% rebate.

Then is the DS system able to be configured (Template customization, timeline composition) with external data's .

I hope things are more clear now. When it's not the case let me know.

Regards

Alain

If you are a reseller, you can take full advantage of the multi user management tools including access control lists.
This will allow you to manage multiple users and set rights and permissions to the SignageStduio (even hiding complete sections of the Studio for certain users).

To learn more about this functionally, be sure to watch these video tutorials:

http://www.mediasignage.com/html/reseller_video.html?videoNumber=multiUsers
http://www.mediasignage.com/html/reseller_video.html?videoNumber=privileges
http://www.mediasignage.com/html/reseller_video.html?videoNumber=accessKeys

So each shop will be Independence in management control.
And using the new Ad engine coming in 2 weeks, you will be able  to run Ads across multiple shops, see
this: http://www.mediasignage.com/html/reseller_video.html?videoNumber=AdEngineIntro

You can export our campaign as XML, but I am not sure how will this benefit you?

And yes, you can create your own SWF that can load custom data from a middleware (SQL DB) as we do support that.

Always glad to help,

Eddie - MediaSignage.com

Hi,
thanks for your answer even on sunday.

Assume I have a CSV file (which can be converted in XML if necessary) with those information's:

SHOP ID;CAMPAIGN;REBATE;STAR DATE;END DATE
FR1010;TIRES;30%;10/10/2011;20/10/2011
FR1010;AIR CONDITIONNING;20%;10/10/2011;20/10/2011
FR2020;TIRES;20 euros;10/10/2011;20/10/2011

Then in shop FR1010, I'll have 2 campaigns on the screen one for tires and another one for Air conditioning.
In shop FR2020, only one campaign, the tires one.

Then I need the timeline of each shop to be dynamic, depending on information's from csv file. I need swf files to be dynamic too with rebates.

Of course, no user in the local shop go into the DS system to do customization. As previously said, there is already an intranet and we don't want our users go into another system.

let me know if it's enough clear.

Regards

Alain

You will need to develop a custom SWF (flash swf file) which can of course load any custom data in ANY format and display custom data.

If you want, we can quote you for custom development of that swf program as well...

Sunday :) we work around the clock!!!
