SageNet is Taking Retail Digital Signage
“To the Edge” at NRF 2023

January 12, 2023

TULSA, Okla. – Jan. 12, 2023 – SageNet, a Tulsa-based managed network, digital signage and security services provider, is taking retail digital signage “to the edge” by highlighting cutting-edge retail shelf and video analytics technologies at this year’s NRF 2023 show, Jan. 15-17 in New York City. NRF 2023: Retail’s Big Show at New York’s Javits Center is the world’s largest retail conference and expo.

Visitors to SageNet’s NRF Booth #1103 can experience SageVIEW Shelf-edge solutions, which offer a combination of Electronic Shelf Labels (ESLs) as well as an in-shelf/shelf-edge digital signage system that utilizes digital signage technology to reimagine retail shelf marketing and maintenance.

SageVIEW Shelf-edge revolutionizes the retail shelf by bringing together high-impact visual technology with the simplicity of managed content that can be easily updated, monitored and maintained.

In addition, visitors to SageNet’s booth can see demonstrations of camera-based retail insight software that can generate performance indicators on a store’s foot traffic as well as visitor attention span regarding physical objects or advertising content shown on screen. With software developed by SageNet partner AQUAJI, a store’s endpoint computing device can be connected to a USB or IP camera. The software analyzes images in real time and generates metadata which is sent to a server. End-users analyze the data using the software’s dashboard.

According to IV Dickson, SageNet’s Vice President of Digital Signage, retailers are recognizing that the consumer journey is increasingly an integrated digital/physical path – and digital signage sits at the intersection of those two worlds.

“Customers now expect a holistic, engaging digital experience,” said Dickson, “one that can adapt and remain relevant over time. When paired with a digital signage platform, our Shelf-edge Solutions and video analytics can offer that exceptional digital experience at the point of impulse – and at the same time provide valuable real-time data to help retailers understand their store visitors better. It’s the information retailers need to ensure their merchandising efforts are reaching the right customers.”

Beyond ESLs, SageVIEW Shelf-edge also provides unique format, high-def, full-color screens that fit perfectly in front of standard shelves to create a dynamic shopping experience and are available in 2-, 3- and 4-foot shelving systems. The flexible shelf mounting brackets can be adjusted for different mounting positions and angles. The shelves also can be equipped with cameras and sensors to provide data to different kinds of signage and inventory systems.

SageNet already manages more than 20,000 SageVIEW Shelf-Edge electronic display solutions for its retail and convenience store customers.

SageNet has more than 30 years of experience providing a broad range of managed network, digital signage and cybersecurity services to the retail industry. Services range from interactive digital experience initiatives to primary and back-up networks, merchant connectivity, and PCI compliant networks, as well as customized networking technology solutions – all optimized to meet the needs of multi-site operations.
