Broadsign digital signage software and Broadsign Xpress used in select Saudi Arabia banking branches.
4C’s presence in Riyad Bank consists of over 200 screens across 150 branches. Completion of the initial deployment is expected for the end of Q3 2014, with hopes to expand the network from half to all of the bank’s locations in 2015. 4C also uses Broadsign’s platform for its 50 Saudi Hollandi Bank branches.
“Banks are extremely sensitive to security and only Broadsign’s trusted platform and excellent support allowed for integration with Riyad Bank’s LAN,” said Karim Assad, Chief of Engagement and Motivation at 4C. “This connection, along with Broadsign’s cloud-based nature, allows for rapid deployment and contributes to 4C’s competitive advantage.”
A market leader in the banking venue, 4C enhances a customer’s journey within the bank by using advertising-free content inclusive of bank messaging, news and entertainment feeds. Loops of 12 minutes in length are compliant with cultural norms by running news from the nation’s number one broadcaster, Al Arabiya, and National Geographic.
“Broadsign’s flexible and automatic approach to campaigns allows for content scheduling based on screen location inside of the bank,” added Assad. “This is appreciated by bank management, especially given that dedicated content can be scheduled to Saudi Arabia’s separate branches for men and women.”
4C screens are located in the main banking space and high-net-worth areas. Riyad Bank displays are a mix of existing and new LCD screens, while Saudi Hollandi Bank features 62” screens in self-standing kiosks with Broadsign Xpress smart players inside. 4C uses the Android-based Broadsign Xpress for almost all of its media player requirements, due to its attractive price, small size and solid performance.
“In the past, banks have tended to avoid cloud-based software offerings due to strict regulations regarding network security, but the tide is starting to turn,” said Skip Beloff, Vice President of Sales at Broadsign. “4C is a predominant and respected player in the banking sector and this standardization on both the Broadsign platform and Broadsign Xpress is a strong testament to the security of our service and its many user benefits.”
