SageNet Takes Signage to the Edge
TULSA, Okla. – SageNet, a Tulsa-based managed network, digital signage and security services provider, highlighted cutting-edge retail shelf digital signage technologies at this year’s NACS 2022 show, in Las Vegas.
Visitors to SageNet’s NACS Booth experienced SageVIEW Shelf-edge solutions, which offer a combination of Electronic Shelf Labels (ESLs) as well as an in-shelf/shelf-edge digital signage system that utilizes digital signage technology to reimagine retail shelf marketing and maintenance.
SageVIEW Shelf-edge revolutionizes the convenience store shelf by bringing together high-impact visual technology with the simplicity of managed content that can be easily updated, monitored and maintained.
“The whole idea behind this technology is to deliver the impact of traditional large-format Digital Signage at the point of impulse, the precise location of the physical product. This technology gives c-stores a completely new way to simply manage shelf operations in real time. For example, with our ESLs you never need to print out shelf tags again,” said IV Dickson, SageNet’s vice president of digital signage. “This creates huge cost savings for convenience stores, which can have 2,500-plus SKUs. When paired with the broader digital experience, this software optimizes your store displays and gives you a powerful tool to streamline your merchandising.”
Beyond ESLs, SageVIEW Shelf-edge also provides unique format, high-def, full-color screens that fit perfectly in front of standard shelves to create a dynamic shopping experience and are available in two, three and four foot shelving systems. The flexible shelf mounting brackets can be adjusted for different mounting positions and angles. The shelves also can be equipped with cameras and sensors to provide data to different kinds of signage and inventory systems.
SageNet already manages nearly 20,000 of its SageVIEW Shelf-Edge electronic display solutions for its convenience store and retail customers.
According to Dickson, it’s especially important for retailers to recognize that the consumer journey is increasingly an integrated digital/physical path – and digital signage sits at the intersection of those two worlds.
“Today’s customers expect a holistic, engaging digital experience,” said Dickson, “one that is flexible and that can adapt and remain relevant over time. SageVIEW Shelf-edge Solutions aren’t just plug and play – they’re plug and maintain/sustain. It embodies SageNet’s services-driven ecosystem.”
The SageVIEW digital experience platform is backed by SageNet, which has more than 30 years of experience providing a broad range of managed network, digital signage and cybersecurity services to the convenience store and retail industry, from interactive digital experience initiatives to primary and back-up networks, merchant connectivity, and PCI compliant networks to customized networking technology solutions – all optimized to meet the needs of multi-site operations.
