Generating Revenue for Cities through Smart Signage

Smart signage is a cost-effective way for cities to help businesses thrive, keep citizens informed about community happenings, and generate revenue for other projects. 

The benefits of smart signage are many, including: 

  • Paying for both itself and other city digitization technologies 
  • Creating a convenient platform for cities and citizens to communicate
  • Replacing static community billboards and other non-digital communication 
  • Controlling things remotely from a single login 
  • Adding Wi-Fi, sensors, cameras, electric car charging stations, ticket printers and more to the signage kiosks. 

And the effectiveness of smart signage for businesses are supported by recent studies.

In one study it was shown that 51% of people notice street level advertisements that gave directions to a business. Of these, 65% immediately visited the business after seeing the advertisement, and 92% made a purchase after visiting the business. In another study, 62% of advertisement viewers engaged in mobile device actions such as visiting an advertiser’s website, scanned a QR code, downloaded apps, accessed a discount offer, or made a purchase. 

Quantela can support your city with a wide variety of advertising formats from large screen LEDs and video walls to street level interactive touchscreens that let advertisers interact with users through their mobile phones.
