Tempt to Debut Actable™ Interactive Signage That Powers In-Store Multichannel Experiences
NEW BERLIN, WI, August 17, 2012 – Tempt In-Store Productions, a Quad/Graphics company (NYSE: QUAD), has been named a Featured Exhibitor at this fall’s Shopper Marketing Expo. The distinction is reserved for only 25 of the more than 150 companies exhibiting at the Chicago trade show October 16-18. The honor signifies that Tempt’s exhibit and offering is a “must see” for attendees looking for the newest game-changing products and services. Tempt will be using the event to debut Quad/Graphics’ Actable™ interactive signage.
Actable interactive signage – featuring image recognition, augmented reality, Near Field Communication (NFC) or traditional QR codes – creates an exciting and engaging multichannel experience in-store for any customer with an app-enabled smartphone. Applications can include product demonstrations, reviews, how-to videos, and in-store coupons and discount offers. Actable interactive signage provides a lower-cost multichannel in-store experience alternative to more expensive electronic kiosks and flat screen displays.
