This year we can again enjoy our success at the POPAI Awards competition, where we succeeded with five realizations. The display with the Oral B toothbrush was selected as an excellent realization.
A new pallet island for Coca-Cola HBC should acquaint shoppers with Natura bottled water and point out rebranding. It fits into a broad campaign with a similar goal. It shows the purity of the water from Adršpach with the help of water bubbling between rocks and real, live conifer in the middle.
It seems that the subject matter of the current crisis will not leave us soon. We hear about it from all sides, and instead of focusing mainly on work, we constantly think about what will happen. In Dago, we decided to approach this crisis positively and proactively....
These days, JOJO confectionery hardly escapes the attention of most shoppers. For its promotion, we have produced two types of pallet displays you could currently see in selected stores. The first one presents the brand using a hologram; the second one has a plush parrot that lures shoppers.
Becherovka from Karlovy Vary has decided to show people from all over the world the best from its portfolio. For this purpose, it uses our shop-in-shop located in a busy place at Prague Airport. Passers-by can even smell some of the herbs from which the well-known alcoholic liqueur is made.
Many restaurants in Czech and Slovak will look much better. They will welcome their guests in newly equipped outdoor and indoor spaces we created for Coca-Cola. We placed emphasis on sustainable development and natural materials.
Flashing lights, illuminated tube, and 3D effects – these are the most distinctive elements of our pallet island for Zlatý Bažant radlers, which are now catching attention in Slovak stores. Among other things, the display has a relatively unusual function of prompt rebranding.
“It would be great to come closer and take a can,” say customers who have already seen our end cap for the new Cola by Birell in Czech stores. And that is all right! This display wants to stimulate curiosity and the desire to discover.
What could be better than starting each day with a delicious breakfast, which includes fresh fruit juice on the table? Our new end cap, we made for Cappy drinks, communicates such a message. It attracts passers-by in a store with its classic materials, stylish lighting and real food.
In May, we are opening our first branch office in Slovakia. We have been active in Slovakia since 2018, when one project manager has been working there. The number of customers increased since then, so opening a new office proved to be a logical step.
NEW EDGE: We present ourselves to the world of a new reality at a new level
What happened in the POS communication market during the pandemic crisis and why we are now stronger and more efficient.
To make a big difference in a functional society at a time of pandemic storm that shook both society and the market, you must have a vision. You have to have courage. You have to focus on the opportunities and then start to make your way like a carnivorous fish up the river. You must not be discouraged by the scepticism and frustration of the others, or by partial failures, and you must move on. Somehow, a little abstractly, we could describe what was behind the DAGO transformation that has taken place over the last two years.
Impact of the coronavirus on retail industry
The pandemic hit the whole business and marketing industry hard, companies stopped investing heavily in below-the-line advertising, although people (after the initial shock subsided) did not stop shopping. And those who didn´t twiddle their thumbs could make full use of time and space to make their brands visible.
Most in-store campaigns are being created extremely fast today with a short-time character and that’s why the production of POS materials is being realised from cardboard (even more than in previous years), which is developing creatively, its service life is longer, with higher-quality printing and technologically enables (often in combination with other materials and original accessories) modern and excellent realizations in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
Crises create opportunity
We took the crisis in society and business as an opportunity to review the internal functioning of processes and human potential. And the changes were definitely not just “cosmetic.” We built a completely new production department, and equipped it with new IT tools to manage production more efficiently. This resulted in a smoother operation of the sales team as well as better targeted work by technologists. We have improved the project management system. Calculations are much faster now and putting orders into manufacturing and production has become more efficient.
We hired new employees for all departments and several people within the company moved to other positions that “fit” them better. We focus even more on creativity; we do not want to offer clients the opportunity to just catch up with their competition, but through their display to support the uniqueness and individuality of the brand or campaign. Last but not least, we have invested heavily in the production itself, especially in the purchase of state-of-the-art printing machines and cutting plotters. Our production is not only super fast and high quality, but above all ecological and sustainable; for example – we supply cardboard with an FSC certificate.
NEW EDGE POS KOMUNIKACE
All this is behind the idea of ”NEW EDGE POS COMMUNICATION”. New environments, needs and approaches in the post pandemic reality as well as changes of ourselves, the main dominants of which are top level creativity, speed, efficiency and reliability of our production and all-in one full service. These changes have prepared us for new challenges in the sales areas of stores and in the development of POS materials for our clients. In order to be able to meet this even in the next demanding years, we will still work on precision with a sense of detail and functioning like the famous wheels in a watch movement. We want to be the best partner that will support and enrich the client in the world of retail, at any time.
