Easy Screen Management Across Multiple Stores

SPORT 24 implemented Q-Play Digital Signage in their stores as an in-store marketing tool. They use it to showcase their products in an interesting and lively way. With more than 100 physical stores a smart cloud-based digital signage solution, that makes content management easy, was needed. That is why SPORT 24 chose NordicScreen as their digital signage supplier.

With Q-Play SPORT 24 got an effective way of showcasing current campaigns and offers on products on in-store screens. At the same time, Q-Play allows for all product promotion and updates to be done remotely from the SPORT 24 headquarters.

WOW effect where it matters

SPORT 24 is using different types of screens in different types of stores depending on what is the best fit for the individual store. However, they try to implement bigger-sized screens wherever they can to achieve a WOW effect and add volume to the store.
Digital signage allows you to make a real impression with your business. From luring potential customers inside your store by showcasing your show-stopping design to prolonging their stay inside your store by up to 30 percent!

Seller’s exceptional wingman

The in-store sellers are a crucial part of the SPORT 24 selling process. 

So SPORT 24 needs to provide its sales employees with tools they can use that will aid them in the selling process. 

Digital signage is helping SPORT 24 in showcasing the products in their best light which the in-store employees often take advantage of when making a sale or recommending specific products.

The screens are placed so customers first encounter them when entering the store. This is a great way to highlight particular products or sales offers. The second time the customers meet a screen is when heading to the cash register after deciding on making a purchase. Placing a screen behind the cash registry is an obvious opportunity to expose already interested customers to content that might make them buy and spend even more money in the store.

Q-Play has made our marketing so much smoother and easier”
The thing about these info screens is that it’s just a super easy and fast way to bring your marketing out and alive. The fact that you can sit in the back office and press a button, and boom, it’s out in the stores, and then it’s alive, and it does as it is supposed to do

Fitting campaigns always on time

With the scheduling option in Q-Play, SPORT 24 is always able to prepare its content ahead of time. When they are receiving new items or collections the headquarters simply sets up the campaign starting from the date when all the items will be stocked up and ready to go. On the day of release, there are no worries, and Q-Play will take care of updating the content on the screen in all the SPORT 24 stores.

 

When SPORT 24 needs to run a time-limited offer like black Friday for example, they just set the start and end date and the campaigns appear only during the specified time.

Ready to give a helping hand

Help is never far away. When working in Retail your communication needs to be spot on all the time, because you only have very limited time to impact the customer’s purchase decision. Having a signage screen not working as it should or displaying something wrong could be very bad for business. Having a support team ready to help is therefore important. That is why the NordicScreen support team was one of the factors in SPORT 24’s decision on working with NordicScreen.

5 stars

NordicScreen is fast at reacting if I mess up in Q-Play and can’t get the video to work, or there is some format that is playing tricks on me. Then you help me to set it up nicely so that it gets out where it should be. I would absolutely recommend others to use this, it has made our marketing, so much cooler, that we have these screens.
