Samsung Offers Display Solutions to Equip Businesses of All Sizes in Preparation for a Safe and Efficient Operating Return
Samsung Electronics America, Inc. announced today a wide range of commercial display solutions to get companies back to business. Focused on the three key areas of Safety, Collaboration and Communications, Samsung worked together with partners on display solutions that equip business owners with the tools to operate successfully and efficiently. To demonstrate how these display solutions can aid companies in reopening operations, Samsung will be hosting keynotes, customer panels and product experiences on July 15 and 16 in an interactive virtual conference, “Samsung V/X: Back to Business.”
“At Samsung, we pride ourselves on always listening to our customers to provide display solutions that fit their present-day needs,” said Harry Patz, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Display Division. “Our displays power innovative solutions within a broad range of industries, including SMBs, hospitality and quick serve restaurants, to address specific customer pain points. We are excited to work with customers to find the right solutions to enable them to get back to business and implement ongoing efficiencies for them to succeed.”
Companies rely on displays for important communications to their customers, including directional and informational cues. Samsung worked with partners to develop specific display solutions that address the safety, social distancing and hygiene needs of customers. The flexibility of the Samsung display line up as the foundation for these innovative solutions provides businesses with the opportunity to address specific concerns within each industry.
Access & Safety
Businesses nationwide are faced with the challenge of coming up with new guidelines and procedures to ensure a safe and secure environment. Samsung is offering display solutions with key partners designed to safely empower businesses to get back to work.
Along with partner Palmer Digital Group, a division of the Industrial Enclosure Corporation, Samsung is introducing an FDA Certified Temperature Screening Kiosk to seamlessly screen and track temperatures before entering an establishment.
“Palmer Digital Group’s temperature testing kiosks have become a line of defense for employees and customers,” said Charles Lewis, Vice President of Business and Sales at Palmer Digital Group. “Our kiosks are paired with Samsung 32-inch displays, so each user is given clear instructions and information.”
Creative Realities, Inc. (NASDAQ: CREX, CREXW | www. cri.com), a leading provider of digital marketing solutions, also partnered with Samsung on no-contact Thermal Mirror technology to perform real-time temperature inspection and to trigger alerts. The Thermal Mirror is a best-in-class, Cloud-based thermal screening solution with an integrated AI platform and an array of reporting capabilities.
“We’re very pleased to offer our clients a platform that will make a substantial difference in their return to on-site operation and promote confidence in ways that allay concerns for people coming back into the office,” said Rick Mills, CEO of Creative Realities. “We’re pleased that Samsung chose to integrate our Thermal Mirror technology in its own corporate facilities, and confident the solution will play an indispensable role in helping companies take care of their most valuable assets: their employees, guests and customers.”
Remote management for displays also plays a large role in keeping up with the drive-thru and curbside pick-up demand at quick serve restaurants. Samsung’s content and device management solution, MagicINFO, is critical in enabling franchise owners to share menu updates and feature brand promotions in real-time. Samsung is offering a limited time 90-day trial of the MagicINFO Cloud Hosted Solution to provide businesses with the opportunity to test capabilities on their Samsung displays.1
Productivity & Collaboration
Productivity and collaboration tools offer companies the flexibility to function both in offices and remote settings. Equipped with ultra-wide, curved panels and Thunderbolt 3 ports, Samsung’s business monitor portfolio empowers business users to seamlessly work together no matter the location.
Hybrid work environments, with some employees based in an office and others telecommuting, creates an even greater need to collaborate remotely. Samsung and Cisco partnered to design Webex on Flip to offer executives and employees the ability to work as a team across various offices and environments.
“Work styles are changing, and workplaces are transforming,” said Sandeep Mehra, Vice President and General Manager of Webex Rooms. “The modern workplace is all about collaboration hubs and businesses looking to attract the next generation of employees by adapting and implementing the very kinds of technology Samsung and Cisco partnered to create.”
Webex on Flip features various editing tools and the ability to share and source content from multiple connected devices, all with smooth video conferencing, crystal-clear audio and detailed picture quality. Available in 55- and 65-inch screen sizes, Webex on Flip allows for both video conferencing and a digital flipchart simultaneously to produce a more productive and engaging collaboration in any business setting.
Information & Communication
As business owners embrace the new normal, they need to communicate in meaningful ways with their customers and patrons. Innovative signage solutions allow for real-time updates so businesses can arm customers with the most up to date safety and brand messaging.
The new Samsung Pro TV provides businesses with the capability to communicate with customers around the clock. Ranging in size from 43 to 75 inches with an extended 16 hours, 7 days a week operating time, this display enables business owners to stream important content for their customers while continuing to promote safety guidelines and brand information.
Businesses can easily update messaging on the Pro TV with the Samsung Business TV app featuring 100 customizable templates they can upload right from their mobile device.
“Providing businesses with new, easy ways to use digital signage is more important than ever,” said Mark Quiroz, Vice President Marketing, Display Division. “Our new Pro TV, designed for verticals including SMBs, healthcare and education combines a stunning 4K visual experience with a simple do-it-yourself app that allows users to communicate like a marketing pro.”
As Samsung continues to innovate on back to business solutions, the new Pro TV Terrace Edition launching later this year is designed to withstand the elements while delivering exceptional brightness and image quality. Hotels, restaurants and live venues can use this outdoor display to communicate important safety guidelines for customers while also increasing awareness of deals or special offers.
