Halloween becomes more and more popular in the Czech Republic. Coca-Cola has introduced a limited edition of Fanta Black Blood Orange with a blood orange flavor that combines Halloween playfulness and craziness. We produced a distinctive scary display for this product.
The summer relaxed atmosphere should certainly include barbecuing and refreshing beverages cannot be missing. That is how we could sum up the main idea of the campaign “Barbecuing with Coca-Cola”, for which we produced a shop-in-shop with a table and a garden grill.
In Hamleys, the Prague toy store, an entertaining world Hamíkov, where parents can spend their leisure time with their children, was built in cooperation with the company Nutricia. We have created an interactive display for it with the offer of Hami baby food.
The producer of confectionery, chewing-gums and pet food Mars recently introduced a campaign for Orbit and Airwaves chewing-gums called “Arrive fresh in a new car!”. Our one-palette display informed of the contest and attracted attention in Tesco and Globus stores especially thanks to a car model with interactive elements.
The famous Captain Morgana sailing ship we made for the company Stock Plzeň-Božkov, won an award of the international association Shop! at the Global Awards competition. From the final ceremonial, which took place in Chicago, USA, we brought home an award for the best marketing in-store project in the strong category of alcoholic and tobacco products.
We won totally five medal positions at the Thursday´s finals of the world competition POPAI Euro Awards, in which the best projects from the sphere of in-store advertisement compete with each other. We won with all five March nominations.
How to draw attention of customers to the fact that they will find the non-alcoholic Birell refreshment for hot summer days also in the departments of beers, non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages in their supermarket? For this purpose, the brand has been using a new end cap, we have produced, since the beginning of May.
Big black puck, two hockey sticks on the sides and enthusiastic funs in the background – these are the most noticeable elements of the end cap we made for Coca-Cola.
We have produced a new display to promote Fernet Stock liqueur for the company Stock, the leading producer of spirits. Stock uses the display since the end of March in Makro stores and its main goal is to introduce new modern design bottle.
Our website has got a new, more modern design and structure. We have added some elements, which will help us to better present our projects to our visitors.
The new software will reduce order processing times by up to three quarters
Production in the P.O.S. segment is very complex and many subjects cooperate within it. For a long time already we have wondered how to manage our individual projects more effectively – from the production itself to the product placement in stores. That is why we started to develop our own software, which will bring all the production attributes together and make it easier to everyone involved in preparations of individual orders – clients, suppliers and our internal teams.
After the development phase, which lasted for one and a half year, we are now testing the new software. And so far, we have been very successful with it. It turns out that a unified project management facilitates work for us as well as for our customers.
The system constantly transfers all actual data to clients and their business representatives – data about all their displays, where they are located, detailed information about each store, installation plan and so on. If it is found that there is something wrong with any product, they can report the problem using the software and take a photo of its current status using a mobile phone or tablet and upload the image into a cloud.
The time necessary to complete a project rapidly shortens
The system reports the need for ordering appropriate items on time according to warehouse stock and budget and related expenses. It can also accept an order from an information system of a client. So this reduces downtime, which otherwise normally occurs and also the burden of all participating elements because the system automates many activities throughout the implementation process. Stores with installed products are displayed on a map for better clarity; of course it is possible to generate reports and schemes. With regards to data collection in stores, the number and type of monitored P.O.P. media displays in each store is always clear. Thus there is no need for a classic stocktaking, which is now continual. For easier orientation, the products can be filtered according to locality, material, store type, sales representatives and other parameters. Sales representatives and installation technicians have an access to the system available all the time and they can view actual data in certain location using GPS. They should also update information on the spot.
While previously, for example, the placement of three thousand large checkout zones took two or three years, with the new system we can do it in six months. The big advantage is the absolute overview of the installed materials, which enables also repair management and inspection.
10 clients have been participating in the testing and their feedback is very positive. They consider the acceleration of the whole order processing to be the main advantage. Clients have an overview of everything important and approve particular steps just on-line. We see the future in the industry in the closer integration of our comprehensive services with client needs and we are glad that we can already participate in the realization of this vision.
