Whether a company is new to digital outdoor advertising or already experiencing success in the medium, Daktronics reliable technology and services offer incredible value and provide continued success to digital outdoor operators.
Meadors, of Charleston, S.C., and Stokely Outdoor, of Tulsa, Okla., both find the high-quality product and helpful approach that Daktronics offers before, during and after the sale extremely valuable.
“As newcomers in the billboard industry, it was important to us that we purchase a product with an excellent reputation,” said Michael Nixon of Meadors. “With our limited exposure to the industry, it was critical for us to find not only a manufacturer, but a sincere, responsive partner that would guide and inform us through our selection process.”
After purchasing their first digital billboard, Meadors toured Daktronics manufacturing facilities in Sioux Falls, S.D., and Brookings, S.D., in February of 2012.
“From a company point of view, the highlight was meeting the Daktronics team, including one of the founders, Dr. Aelred J. Kurtenbach,” Nixon said. “From a technical point of view, touring the production facility in Sioux Falls was fascinating. I left South Dakota with my expectations having been exceeded on every level and a feeling of complete confirmation that we had made the right choice.”
Meadors was impressed with their Daktronics visit and stressed the importance of exploring and truly understanding digital billboard manufacturers before choosing a provider.
“We intently researched our project and have been well guided by the Daktronics team,” Nixon said. “I would encourage anyone purchasing a digital billboard to tour the Daktronics facilities and meet the folks in South Dakota.”
In addition to helping first-time outdoor operators like Meadors, Daktronics services and products keep outdoor companies like Stokely Outdoor Advertising coming back. Stokely installed their first Daktronics digital billboard in 2008. Since then, owner Bill Stokely has purchased six additional Daktronics digital billboards.
“There’s a reason larger universities, professional sports teams and the big buyers of electronics work with Daktronics,” Stokely said. “I’m not a gambler when it comes to choosing a digital billboard manufacturer. I’m going to go with established people that have a proven product, critically important service capabilities and are always willing to take that extra step to make sure I’m pleased with the end result.”
“We strive to make the addition of digital billboards as easy as possible for both large and small outdoor operators,” said Jeremy Johnson, Daktronics digital billboard sales manager. “We’re finding the more our customers take advantage of our value-added services, the more they can realize the full potential of digital billboard advertising.”
Since entering the digital billboard business in 2001, Daktronics continues to collaborate with outdoor advertising operators, improving technology while increasing overall value through a unique blend of digital billboard services not offered by any other display manufacturer. The company’s wide range of billboard services such as regulatory assistance, installation management, maintenance, technical and creative services, and complete system monitoring through Intelligent Device Management, all combine to help meet each unique outdoor operator’s business model.
