Growing Restaurant Chain’s Installations Mark First Major U.S. Deployment of LG webOS- enabled Digital Signage Displays Powered by EngagePHD™
Ping HD, a leading provider of digital signage software solutions, today announced that the world’s largest Latin chicken restaurant chain, Pollo Campero, is beginning to roll out Ping HD’s award-winning EngagePHD™ content management platform on advanced digital signage displays from LG Electronics.
Expecting to finish the year with more than 80 quick serve restaurants in the United States, Pollo Campero selected Ping HD reseller partner Apex Digital Signage to provide EngagePHD™-powered LG Digital Menu Boards and promotional Digital Signage displays for all U.S. Pollo Campero locations.
The solution is built around 49-inch and 43-inch class LG commercial displays (models 49SM5B and 43SM5B) featuring LG’s flexible “webOS for Signage” platform and powered for the first time by Ping HD’s EngagePHD™ software.
Typically, Pollo Campero customers will see four displays at each restaurant including a promotional display as you enter the restaurant and a three-display Digital Menu Board array behind the order counter.
EngagePHD™ is an easy-to-use, web-based design, content management and network monitoring application. Built using the latest web technologies, this application works seamlessly with LG’s webOS-enabled commercial digital signage displays. The EngagePHD™ dashboard allows QSR clients to manage content, insert calorie counts to comply with FDA regulations and view in real-time what content is being shown on each display at every restaurant from headquarters.
Kevin Goldsmith, Chief Technology Officer at Ping HD, says:
“Deploying LG webOS commercial displays powered by EngagePHD™ is a no brainer for companies looking for a robust digital signage platform. Lower cost of ownership coupled with up to 90 percent reduction in support issues compared to external media player based options, leads to an accelerated return on investment and fewer grey hairs.”
