Big Win For John Ryan In Spain

Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

Here’s an uplifting retail banking story and a big win for John Ryan in Spain – a 500 branch digital signage rollout for Caja Mediterráneo.

1branchinteriorThe screens, placed in high-traffic areas of the branch interior and exterior are designed to convey promotional and informational messages in eight languages – all handled by John Ryan’s Messaging Manager platform.

There are some really nice uses of content and not surprisingly a lot of localised messaging – we particularly liked the events calendar which features Caja Mediterráneo’s sponsorship of activities at the neighborhood, provincial, regional and national level and local real-estate listings.

The screens also are being used for a number of ‘micro-campaigns’ that vary for each branch, based on the prior week’s sales results.

The system, we are told, is operated by John Ryan’s Web-based Messaging Manager content creation and management tools – five different internal departments regularly use the system, as well as external agencies and translators.

The Messaging Manager product is not related to John Ryan’s ScreenRed business unit we understand.
