Due to the ever increasing advertising demand on Primedia Unlimited’s XP Digital platform, the decision was made to take the management of the digital signage in-house and start a new chapter with the introduction of a new technical division.
“Stephan Schlebusch and Andries Grobler will be accountable for the successful management and support of this platform and will head up the new technical division,” says XP Digital’s Operations Director Corné Korb.
“Stephan is responsible for updating the many client adverts, as well as content on the advertising platform and has been with X/procure Software for nearly 11 years. He has a good understanding of the business and requirements since running the content management on the X/procure Pharmacy platform for the last couple of years. Recently employed, Andries, has a good technical knowledge in the maintenance of hardware and software.”
The management of this platform includes monitoring of the in-store hardware which allows for immediate notification of any hardware related problems on any of the components installed in the pharmacy; the monitoring of software to look out for any possible power problems or visibility issues on the screen; screenshot retrieval, enabling a snapshot of what is displayed on screen; assistance with the design of artwork for on-screen display and provision for Proof of Play reports and any of the flightings on these screens.
“We believe that these changes will enhance the experience and service that customers already receive from us,” concludes Korb.
