INFORMATION WITH ADDED VALUE

Targeted, real-time content

Modern bus and stop displays are often very capable, but the systems that drive them often aren’t. Passengers and media consumers have come to expect rich and varied content including information, entertainment and, fundamentally, timely real-time information such as weather, travel information and news. This content should be targeted and be themed across all of the information sources accessed – bus screens, stop screens, web, apps and whatever else is out there should be consistent!

imedia is the system that brings it all together

imedia is a custom designed system that allows you to compile and publish all sorts of information to on bus and stop screens, whilst making sure that the system provides timely real time information as a priority. It is easy to use, comprehensive, and offers itself to reducing publicity costs or generating revenues, possibly through our Sales service.

Imagine this…

Your customer is waiting at the stop – the stop display lets her know that the bus is coming shortly and that if she registers, she’ll earn a free cuppa at a particular shop on a particular route. She boards the bus. The screen on the bus warns her that she is approaching the stop, and in the meantime she has used her phone to register for the offer. She receives a text confirmation which also acts as the voucher – and decides to use the voucher, so gets off, having checked the time of the next bus on the stop display.

 

 

 

 

Alternatively, she needs to know the time of the next train after she arrives at the station on the bus. She sees real time rail information on the bus and knows that the connection is going to be fine, and also realises that she can get a cheap fare that day (or a ‘plusbus’) because the display tells her that. An ad also tells her that she can have a free coffee at the coffee bar if she buys a breakfast roll. This same approach can be used to advise people of service disruption, fare offers or anything else you can think of – targeted in advance and displayed in real time.
