Industrial Distributor Background

StrandVision Digital Signage Loading

Industrial, electrical, plumbing, trucking, construction and other distributors – increase sales, receive coop advertising dollars from vendors, display new products or services, improve point-of-purchase materials, and give your customers important news and weather info.

You can make money by selling advertising space right in your showroom! With a StrandVision Digital Signage system, you can feature a new product from a selected vendor, highlight specials or high margin products, present training opportunities and schedules, and show the latest news and weather forecast. StrandVision Digital Signage decreases customers’ perceived wait time and provide your messages to a captive audience at the point of sale.

For less than the cost of a single newspaper ad or direct mail campaign you can have a full year of advertising right where you need it – at your counter. StrandVision hosts the server and you can use standard, off-the-shelf TVs and computers, so the setup is easy.
