Rohan brings its products to life with Dynamax’s digitalsignage.NET

British clothing brand, Rohan is using Dynamax’s digitalsignage.NET to run digital displays in stores in Salisbury, Guildford and Bristol, UK in an effort to strengthen its brand and educate customers about the technical benefits of its products.

The system was designed to complement shop assistants in the highly consultative sale of Rohan clothing and present the company’s 40 year long history.  The company had an original approach to in-store marketing, displaying lifestyle videos along with product demonstrations in a successful attempt to immerse customers in the brand’s world and put their products in context.

The displays show videos shot in various places around the world where Rohan clothing is worn; complementing the static signage they already had in place. The system is also used to educate those customers who, when entering their stores, are reluctant to interact with their staff immediately.

Rohan’s Chairman, Colin Fisher said: ‘’We make gear that protects people in the world’s wildest places, its technical benefits being rather hidden than overt.  So we decided to use digital signage to explain these technical features in a visual way. I wanted something that brought the product to life and there’s nothing that beats digital signage for this. digitalsignage.NET made the content distribution into the shops seamless, delivering a quality output that involves a simple operation.’’

Rohan’s headquarters manage the content centrally while involving shop floor staff in the choice of files that get published on screens in their stores. Peter Smith, Infrastructure Manager at Rohan commented on the system: ‘If you’re looking for a system that could be deployed quickly using existing infrastructure without a considerable capital expenditure on service, this solution has proved very good.’’

Dynamax’s software runs 19-inch LG displays powered by IAdea’s XMP-330 SMIL devices.

Howard Smith, Director and Founder of Dynamax said: ‘’We are pleased to have had the opportunity to work with Rohan and show our software’s ability to meet the complex needs of retailers as well as to reinforce the high potential of digital signage in this environment.’’
