- PRESS RELEASE
Advanced Interactive Media Solutions (AIMS), the GCC market leader in digital signage solutions, has revealed that the solid performance of the Middle East retail industry, which, according to RNCOS market research consulting, is expected to sustain a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 10% from 2011-2014 and reach over $1 trillion by 2014, will serve as a key driving force behind the rapid adoption of digital signage solutions in the region.
AIMS further revealed that digital signage has become increasingly popular among retailers as it gives them greater control to quickly and easily update or change the messages delivered in-store, catering to the needs of modern, savvy shoppers who expect a state-of-the-art shopping experience.
"Digital signage technology has made a huge impact on the rapid transformation of the Middle East retail landscape into more of a technology-oriented, customer-focused industry. In the past few years, AIMS has supported leading retail brands and major shopping destinations that are now increasingly taking advantage of digital signage solutions to enhance the shopping experience and influence purchasing decisions of shoppers right at the point of purchase. Indeed, in just a few simple steps specific customers can be targeted directly with information on products, promotions and offers across the store, allowing retailers to ultimately increase their business potential by delivering the right message to the right audience at the right time," said Ahmed ElRidi, CEO of Advanced Interactive Media Solutions, UAE.
"Digital signage is certainly a great tool to ultimately drive revenues, while keeping advertising expenditure under control as it eliminates high costs related to creating and distributing conventional print-ad campaigns. Moreover, it is also much easier to sell digital advertising space, which further optimizes the revenue potential of retailers. We are therefore confident that the robust growth forecast of the region's retail industry will further add momentum to the continued adoption of digital signage technology in the Middle East. AIMS has vast experience and expertise in providing end-to-end digital signage solutions for various retail applications in the Middle East, giving us a unique competitive edge to offer tailor-made services for the Arab retail landscape," added ElRidi.
AIMS integrates the power of SCALA content management solutions, internet, interactive displays, mobile applications and communication technologies to develop interactive digital signage solutions for the region. The company also uses advanced audience measurement solutions to maximise the ROI of each campaign and ensure optimum customer satisfaction.
