All the best for 2017!
What a year 2016 was and what a year 2017 is going to be! There was a slight respite at the end of last year from our retail clients (as they don’t install new systems in December) but the ODM team were kept on their toes with other projects. We have also had an incredibly fast start to 2017 and the ODM offices around the country are starting to feel like Virgin Health Clubs in January – very busy!
The business expansion in Africa is going well – with new sites being taken on in Ghana, Zimbabwe with forthcoming sites in Malawi. The consolidation of the industry in South Africa continues with our on-going acquisition plans and partnership deals. The growth of ODM services across the board will also ensure that ODM remains the largest supplier of Digital Narrowcasting services in Africa.
Our ambitious statement for 2017 is “our best year yet” and the dedicated ODM team has accepted that challenge!
“In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.” Abraham Lincoln
ODM have partnered with Woolworths and installed a total of 13 different digital signage communication points ranging from Video Walls, to large format LED Displays at their new store in Rosebank (The Mall of Rosebank).
This exciting store was launched on 25 September 2014 As you walk past Woolworths your attention will be drawn by the large 3m x 3m LED display. Inside, you will find a further 3 smaller LED displays, in the RE: Woman, RE: Men and Modern Woman sections.
In the Studio W Men and Woman section you will find 1 x 46” portrait screen. As you enter the food market, be sure to look out for the 46” portrait screen displaying all the specials and daily difference items. Furthermore, the Country Road group has concession stores within Woolworths; they have 2 x 46” portrait screens located at Witchery Woman’s section, 1 x 46” portrait screen at Witchery Kids and lastly 1 x 46” portrait screen at Mimco.
We congratulate Woolworths on yet another successful store launch and look forward to adding more of these solutions to other stores in the near future.
One Digital Media (ODM), the largest digital signage company in South Africa, and KFC are on track to complete one of the largest digital menu board networks in the world. Currently, over 5000 digital menu boards have been installed for KFC YUM! in South Africa.
An additional 1200 installations are planned over the next year. The network, which comprises up to nine screens in each KFC store, has already been installed in 586 KFCs around the country and additional sites continue to roll out each month. Each screen serves as a menu board, and each screen or group of screens can be changed cost-effectively from a central point within a matter of minutes, providing immediate results.
