technology also allows retailers and brands to grow their omni-channel
strategy, enabling consumers to shop wherever and whenever they want.


The joint digital-signage solution includes a STRATACACHE
media player, ActiVia for Media digital signage software and
high-definition display, all running on Verizon’s 4G LTE network and hosted
either as a cloud service or within a customer’s data center. 


With STRATACACHE’s ActiVia software, retailers can log
into a Web portal to easily create, schedule, manage, distribute and monitor
digital signage messages in-store from their PC or any Verizon mobile
device.  Consumer-facing media can be updated instantaneously or altered
to reflect changing market conditions, adapting to store, region, time-of-day
or consumer demographics.


“Verizon’s relationship with STRATACACHE allows us
to help retailers provide an enhanced experience with consumers regardless of
where customers interact with the products,” said Ravi Bagal, vice
president of Verizon Retail.
