Helping Store Owners to Attract New Customers and Increase Repeat Visits
TOKYO, January 8, 2013 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., today announced plans to revolutionize storefront advertising by launching a new digital signage business. Driving this exciting new business is Casio Signage, a newly developed, powerful tool for helping store owners gain an edge over their competition by attracting more new and repeat customers.
Storefront advertising needs to catch the attention of customers and then be interesting and relevant enough to invite them in. The Casio Signage Business takes a revolutionary new approach leveraging optimum storefront advertising tools and cloud services to attract new customers and increase repeat visits.
Casio Signage is a cutting-edge storefront advertising tool with the power to captivate passers-by with a realistic-looking character that talks to them from the screen. The screen itself is actually shaped like the character, which can be freely selected to match the characteristics needed to bring people into a given store. The character’s appearance and voice can be changed easily to keep repeat customers from losing interest. Casio Signage is also very compact and requires no installation work, making it easy to place almost anywhere in the store. It also offers multilingual support for visitors who speak various languages, and its light source lasts approximately 20,000 hours.
Together with innovative cloud services such as the issuance of digital coupons, stores with Casio Signage will enjoy an edge over the competition.
