Raising the bar for customer experience: To celebrate the partnership, PPDS and Key Digital will co-host a free webinar this month, discussing the most effective ways for bars and restaurants – including those in hotels and public venues – to simplify and futureproof their AV ecosystems, using Philips displays to create new customer experiences while maximizing revenue opportunities.
PPDS, the exclusive global provider of Philips digital signage, LED, and professional TVs, is excited to announce a new strategic partnership with Key Digital – a leading manufacturer of digital video distribution and control systems – to bring new levels of support to bars and restaurants in the way they manage and control their AV solutions, for greater customer experiences and lucrative business opportunities and outcomes.
Part of PPDS’ evolving strategy to support and bring dedicated solutions to the food and beverage industry, the new partnership with Key Digital represents the latest evolution of the company’s ‘total solutions’ strategy, by combining its state-of-the-art display technology with other industry-leading third-party solutions (including hardware and software) for added market value and end-user experiences.
Working seamlessly across a variety of dedicated Philips professional displays for the food, beverage, and hospitality industry – including professional TVs (such as Philips B-Line), digital signage (Philips Q-Line, Philips D-Line) touch and kiosk displays (Philips T-line) among others – Key Digital brings a range of new game-changing solutions to streamline the control and distribution of content to displays – including from a smartphone – as well as the management of other AV applications within their AV ecosystem (i.e. audio, lighting, security). Examples of benefits provided by Key Digital’s user-friendly AV solutions can be viewed here.
Jonathan Ferry, VP of Product Education and Experience at Key Digital commented: “We’re delighted to have partnered with PPDS and combine our industry-leading solutions with their state-of-the-art displays to bring greater value and, crucially, more simplicity to bars and restaurants when managing their AV and experience.”
He added: “Attaching the sale of your PPDS displays and video walls with AV distribution and control systems exponentially increases your profits while enhancing the experiences for your customers, ensuring positive reviews and repeat business. Through PPDS's partnership with Key Digital, customers will also have access to a variety of technical support and free system design resources to ensure success.”
To celebrate the announcement, PPDS and Key Digital will co-host a free partner webinar this month – February 23, 12:00pm EST – unveiling and discussing in detail a range of solutions designed to support, inspire and educate the market on new and innovative ways to address and overcome many of the challenges faced when installing and accessing increasingly complex and often confusing AV ecosystems (including audio, lighting and security), which have radically evolved over time.
The webinar, titled ‘How to Effectively Manage an AV Ecosystem in a Bar/Restaurant,’ will also explore new opportunities for bars and restaurants, including those in hotels, public venues, and even sporting arenas, to maximize customer engagement, while creating new revenue opportunities, through inspiring and simple to create/distribute content.
Open to all – including AV Integrators, IT Professionals, Bar / Restaurant proprietors, and ownership Management Groups – the one-hour session will be hosted by Jack Boyczuk, Business Manager at PPDS, and Jonathan Ferry, VP of Product Education and Experience at Key Digital.
Jack Boyczuk commented: “Bar and restaurant operators are increasingly investing in AV equipment to entertain patrons and to establish an exciting vibe in their venues. This has led to more complex AV ecosystems and a challenge of how to control them using non-technical staff. To help solve this challenge, PPDS and Key Digital, have partnered to provide venues with a simple to manage solution that delivers an exceptional customer experience, while adding potentially lucrative new opportunities to increase business revenues. We look forward to welcoming you on the first of a series of webinar sessions in 2022 where we will reveal more.”
