Healthcare Network Operator will deploy EnQii platform for new Digital-out-of-Home network to be deployed in several hundred clinics and hospitals nationwide in 2010
ConnectiVISION, Network Operator for the most advanced Digital-out-of-Home Healthcare network in the US and EnQii, the leading Digital Signage Platform provider today announced a partnership to rollout ConnectiVISION’s network to thousands of screens in hospitals and clinics across the country, supported by EnQii’s new EnGage platform.
“We chose EnQii because we needed a platform that would allow us to innovate rapidly at scale and support our vision for the future of DOOH in Healthcare”, said David Tetreault, CMO ConnectiVISION, “we have been incredibly impressed with the capabilities of EnQii’s EnGage platform and their willingness to work closely with us as we shape our vision”.
The EnGage Software-as-a-Service platform gives ConnectiVISION the ability to expand its digital media network as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible while delivering cutting-edge capabilities that meet the unique needs of the Healthcare industry. The ability to deliver dynamically targeted programs to each screen location with the flexibility to change content on-the-fly and refresh programs on an hourly, daily or weekly basis is critical in an environment with long dwell times and a need to continually improve patient/visitor satisfaction.
“EnQii is very excited to add ConnectiVISION to our world class network portfolio”, said Stuart Armstrong, President of EnQii in the Americas, “we see tremendous opportunities for DOOH in the Healthcare space and with EnGage we believe we have a platform that will redefine digital media in Healthcare creating new branding opportunities for advertisers and healthcare providers, as well as significantly improving the waiting room experience”.
ConnectiVISION’s network is already deployed in a number of clinic and hospital locations nationwide and with a strong and rapidly growing pipeline the company is gearing up to expand its network to over 1000 sites by Q3 2010. The ConnectiVISION Digital Communications Network offers Healthcare providers the combined benefits of an engaging, interactive media experience through a network of screens in various waiting rooms, coupled with a modular kiosk system that allows patients and visitors to “stay connected” while in the facility.
ConnectiVISION is using many new features of the EnGage platform to create a new and compelling media experience in healthcare, such as the ability to embed live streams within the program, and the ability for each venue to insert customized messages and change these on-the-fly with an easy to use web tool. Moving forward both companies plan to collaborate on advanced capabilities such as social media integration and mobile interactivity. EnQii’s EnGage platform is the leading Web 2.0 industry platform with a superior media targeting and scheduling engine, advanced campaign management tools and extensive content management features including dynamic “SmartContent” widgets and event-based triggers. With EnGage local messaging capabilities are greatly expanded using OnSite Manager, which enables publishing of secure, targeted messages by individual site managers on deployed networks, and automates information displays such as menu boards and meeting room systems.
