Cambridge, MA and Charlottetown, PE, Canada (PRWEB) April 26, 2011
LocaModa and ScreenScape today announced they are collaborating to enable powerful end-to-end place-based social media solutions.
Today's announcement is predicated on the shared vision of both companies and the recognition that their collaboration results in a best of class end-to-end solution. To that end, LocaModa's place-based social media will be offered by ScreenScape and LocaModa will include ScreenScape on the list of approved content management platforms it recommends to licensees.
ScreenScape's community-based digital signage platform already supports a rapidly growing community of over 1,500 businesses in retail, entertainment, sports and healthcare markets. Many customers in those markets are in need of a rich and engaging social media platform to add value to and extend the reach of their existing media mix and marketing communication. For example, displaying "venue safe", filtered social media feeds such as Foursquare check-ins, tips and offers to better inform their customers, as well as real-time Facebook and Twitter messages to create an interactive dialogue around local or contextually interesting topics.
Mark Hemphill, ScreenScape's Founder and Chief Product Officer said, "LocaModa has inspired many in the industry to embrace mobile and social solutions. I'm delighted to be able to offer our community of users LocaModa's powerful place-based social media. Our combined solutions deliver scalable, efficient web based platforms delivering a suite of turnkey products and social media applications resulting in a more valuable signage experience for both the venue and consumer."
Stephen Randall, LocaModa CEO commented, "ScreenScape and LocaModa take a truly web-centric approach to out-of-home customer engagement. The combination of our respective platforms results in an end-to-end solution that makes it easier and more cost-effective for businesses to integrate their on-line and off-line marketing strategies. We look forward to helping members of the ScreenScape Community to engage and connect to their customers in new ways."
