Oregon City Creative Technology Firm Flixio Collaborates with BrightSign to Create Interactive Signage Experience for CubeSmart Customers at 300 Locations
LOS GATOS, CA – February 22, 2012 – BrightSign LLC®, a key player in the digital signage controller industry, announced today the results of its recent collaboration with Flixio, an Oregon City content development partner, for CubeSmartsm (NYSE: CUBE). CubeSmart is a leader in the $20+ billion self-storage industry. BrightSign’s network-enabled HD1010 interactive players were combined with Flixio content to provide all-inclusive touchscreen kiosks that would helped CubesSmart increase sales.
Following the successful deployment of the BrightSign/Flixio signage solution in the lobby of its primary superstore in Philadelphia, CubeSmart is planning to roll out kiosks at more than 300 locations across the nation. Flixio’s CubeSmart solution has also been named a finalist in the Business, Industry & Government category of Digital Signage Expo®’s (DSE) Content Awards for 2012 which will be announced at DSE this year on March 7.
Interacting with a 46″ screen, a CubeSmart customer, or an employee assisting a customer, can view the many features and benefits that set CubeSmart apart from the competition. With the touchscreen display, they can call up an array of storage solutions ranging from personal mini storage; car, RV, motorcycle and boat storage; climate-controlled storage and commercial storage as well as services such as Wi-Fi access and CubeSmart’s exclusive SmartTrakr organizing application and premium storage options like shelving, individual alarms and remote access.
“BrightSign players were initially selected for their price, ease of use and product quality,” said Kirk Vanderleest, Vice President, National Accounts at Flixio. “Some of the features that influenced CubeSmart to expand their signage solution to other locations were the networking features that simplified changing content, the great touchscreen interface and the high-quality content playback.
The BrightSign players provide the sophisticated features and controls that Flixio’s dynamic, interactive content requires to drive easy touchscreen access. There are 130 unique video assets in the CubeSmart interactive project and the number of connection points between assets, i.e., different routes or directions a person can take, is close to 1,000. Despite this complex web of connections, the content itself seamlessly guides viewers from one service or feature of CubeSmart to the next, allowing them to quickly and easily find the information they need.
“Downtown Oregon City’s creative core of businesses are leading their industries in creativity, entrepreneurism and in building national accounts,” said Lloyd Purdy, Director of Downtown Oregon City’s revitalization program. “Pairing local talent with a national client base for innovative product development is a testament to the leadership of Flixio.”
