Hear from the ScreenScape team! In this video ScreenScape staff members discuss the benefits of place-based media as a marketing weapon.
“What’s really exciting about place-based media right now, is that new technology has arrived, that’s really lowering the cost. So now, it’s allowing businesses to create more engaging, more rich experience in a venue where a purchase decision is about to be made, and this lifts sales.”
Shown below is a snapshot of our membership from 2010 which I’ve overlaid a snapshot of our current membership (in orange). You can see growth across Europe and Asia as well as more concentrated growth in North America. What quickly started out as being in over a dozen countries worldwide has changed to over 40 countries in a short amount of time.
Recently Hyundai Canada discovered ScreenScape to power video displays in Hyundai dealership showrooms as well as parts & service waiting areas.
“We find video to be a very effective way to communicate with our customers the benefits of driving and owning a Hyundai vehicle,” said Michael Handy, Parts Marketing Manager for Hyundai Canada. “ScreenScape gives us the ability to deliver video directly to customers inside our dealerships. It also helps us coordinate our marketing efforts with dealers and add another in-store communications channel to inform and entertain customers.”
Here’s a couple of videos featuring some of our automotive customers. They discuss how ScreenScape is a fit for their point-of-sale media.
Darryl Budd talks about how easy ScreenScape is to use at his BMW dealership to keep customers engaged.
Wakefield Canada talks about using ScreenScape for their digital signage network to promote Castrol content across many automotive dealers and service centers.
Canlan Ice Sports Corp. is the North American leader in the development, operations and ownership of multi-purpose recreation and entertainment facilities. Canlan uses ScreenScape to power Canlan TV. What follows are a few select excerpts from a recently published case study (also available in PDF).
Canlan TV is a place-based media network that spans 500 screens in 20 ice sports facilities and Thirsty Penguin restaurants. Each year more than 10 million people see a Canlan TV message. Let’s hear what the key people of Canlan say about working with ScreenScape.
“ScreenScape is a cost effective and efficient sales tool that we use to coordinate all of the promotions we run in our facilities. It provides us with the flexibility we need to direct an event or product promotion to a specific audience at a specific place & time.” – Tim Sullivan, Sales and Marketing Manager Canlan Ice Sports.
Boost National Promotions
“We use ScreenScape to add value to our national promotions. Larger companies and brands that we partner with provide us with their promotional content to run in concert with our own. Based on the increased visibility ScreenScape provides to sponsors, it has increased demand from new partners and from national brands that want access to our audience. This drives revenue for Canlan. – Kevin Ball, Director of Sales, Canlan Ice Sports.”
Complement traditional marketing
“For instance, our partner Coca Cola works closely with all the different media types we have to offer, ScreenScape being one. Coca Cola already runs digital promotions which we can now accommodate and publish on Canlan TV. They also advertise on our walls and in our restaurants with traditional place based marketing. It’s great how place-based media complements and extends the promotional mix that we can offer our sponsors.” – Kevin Ball, Director of Sales, Canlan Ice Sports.
Ease of Use
“People don’t understand just how simple it was to subscribe to ScreenScape. We established our account within minutes. Better yet, when we transitioned from our conventional digital signage platform, we were able to use our existing hardware. That made the transition very easy.” – Tim Sullivan, Sales and Marketing Manager Canlan Ice Sports.
Salon owner Michael Muia uses a ScreenScape-powered Screen Display to engage clients with professional video.
“In order to be successful in the salon business, like any service business, it’s difficult to overstate the importance of onsite marketing,” says Michael Muia, owner of Michael’s Hair Salon in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
In over twenty-five years in the business Michael has spent thousands of dollars in graphic design fees and printing costs to try to educate his clients and engage them with beautiful visuals while they visit his salon.
The ScreenScape Solution
All that changed with the introduction of a new visually-rich retail marketing tool called ScreenScape. ScreenScape is an online software tool Michael uses to quickly populate digital screens inside his salon with beautiful images of hair product and educational messages featuring his latest in-store promotions.
Michael is emphatic when it comes to the simplicity of ScreenScape. “ScreenScape is easy-to-use software for savvy retail marketers who want to engage their customers with brilliant high-definition video but don’t have the budget to pay graphic designers or videographers thousands each year to do it. With ScreenScape, I can do it. And if I can do it, anybody can do it!”

Wella, The Salon Professional Division of P&G introduced ScreenScape to Michael as a means to lift sales.
“We are always happy to help our salon partners and we see ScreenScape as a real business enabler. When one of our salons joins ScreenScape they can easily subscribe to our professional content that shows off the latest Sebastian, Wella or Nioxin product in full high definition video. By creating and curating these videos and additional product messaging on our end, on an ongoing basis, we are able to enhance the salon experience while saving our stylists thousands in the process.” – Jeannette Keir, Commercial Leader for Wella, The Salon Professional Division of P&G, Canada.
Enhancing the Customer Experience
Professional salon owners use ScreenScape for more than just video and product messaging. By choosing from hundreds of templates, any user of ScreenScape can create and post their own custom messaging. By promoting your services, on sale merchandise and informing every customer about the exciting things happening at your salon, you can turn ScreenScape into a retail marketing engine that lifts sales while enhancing the salon experience for your customers.
Recently, Mennonite Savings and Credit Union (“MSCU”) installed ScreenScape displays in its branches. The displays are intended to bolster customer communications and enhance the in-branch experience. We thought you’d like to hear a little about the project directly from the stakeholders.
A network-centric approach
“Amongst the potential solutions we reviewed, ScreenScape offered a higher level of functionality and was very competitive on total cost of ownership. What really appealed to us as a credit union and cooperative is ScreenScape’s unique network-centric approach. This offers MSCU the ability to enhance our signage with content from our community partners,” says Frank Chisholm, marketing manager at MSCU.
On time and on budget
Beyond delivering a ‘state of the art’ platform, ScreenScape also played an instrumental role in getting our branch locations operational on time and within budget. We had a very tight four week deadline and were absolutely impressed by the speed with which all eight branches were operational. The ScreenScape Client Services team, working in conjunction with Tech9, exceeded our expectations in terms of knowledge, project management and responsiveness.”
“ScreenScape has been helping financial institutions to more effectively engage their customers during visits to their local branch,” said Kevin Dwyer, President & CSO of ScreenScape. “It’s gratifying to see that financial institutions such as MSCU, Libro Financial, Consolidated Credit Union and many others see the value in using ScreenScape to educate, inform and communicate directly with their members where it matters most, inside their branch.”
