Blog | Cloud Based Digital Signage for Enterprise

The easiest, most effective way to manage a large digital signage network.

Our cloud platform serves as the backbone for your digital signage network. Logging in through a convenient cloud portal, digital signage personnel can manage content, as well as the hardware that displays your content across the digital signage network. The digital signage cloud is also a centralized location where corporate data can inform and personalize content delivery, supporting next generation customer experiences.

Engage Customers with Relevant Content

The impact of your digital signage depends on relevance. Is the content important to the person who views it? STRATACACHE cloud digital signage content management software sits in the center of your digital signage network, integrating with your data sources, enforcing rules, and working with location managers to deploy the right content at the right time.

  • AI-Driven Limited Time Offers (LTOs) — Integrate your content management with Machine Learning to optimize content delivery in real time.

Measuring Impact

Customer analytics are as good as the systems that you set up to measure engagement. For most businesses, that means general sales and profitability statistics. Integrating POS data from locations with cloud digital signage software allows you to analyze campaign performance at a macro level.

These data points can give you a good general idea of whether the campaign strategy is hitting certain goals, but it does not provide depth. You cannot tell what went wrong, or what went right for that matter. To optimize content, you often need additional data sources.

In-store, anonymous customer engagement metrics provide that missing piece of the puzzle, reporting on the dwell time and pathing that customers take around your store, and your signage. This micro data allows you to conduct A/B testing on your content that helps your business become increasingly customer-centric over time.

Screen Monitoring to Ensure Uptime

Digital displays look incredible when they work, and they are eyesores when they do not. This makes uptime absolutely essential when approaching your cloud digital signage solution. STRATACACHE takes the attitude that networks are ultimately less reliable than you want your business to be. We store content and processing capabilities at your locations, so that in the event of a network outage, your screens will still shine.
