JOHNS CREEK, GA--(Marketwire -03/05/12)- Wegener Corporation (OTCQB: WGNR.PK - News) (Pinksheets: WGNR.PK - News), a leading provider of equipment for television, audio and data distribution networks worldwide, today announced technology partner, Dolphinio Business Services, has launched a pilot digital signage system for a national network of real estate offices.
The application features the integration of customized web pages and WEGENER's CompelConnect.com™ Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). This unique combination of processes and services distributes the job of updating general sign content, like crawl messages, graphics, or video, directly to multiple contributors, using simple, secure web forms. The CompelConnect.com service automatically aggregates and delivers these updates without additional operator interaction. "A manageable workflow for content updates is critical when planning a large signage network. Even small tasks can become overwhelming when multiplied by thousands of sites. WEGENER's systems are designed to be scalable and with streamlined workflow in mind," stated Ric Vega, National Channel Sales Manager for WEGENER.
Dolphinio Business Services is a systems and business process integration company. Using WEGENER's API interface and auto-file update feature, Dolphinio Business Services manages an unlimited number of individual login credentials for content contribution -- completely automating digital signage updates by a large number of independent contractors.
"The power of this integration with CompelConnect.com allows the engine driving the complex coordination of multiple content contributors to be behind the scenes," stated Kurt Cleveland, Director of Market Development for Dolphinio Business Services. "Contributors need only interface with simple, custom, network-centric, web portals."
WEGENER National Channel Sales Manager Ric Vega, along with WEGENER Vice President and System Architect Gary Pelkey, will be available in booth #764 at the 2012 Digital Signage Expo to discuss WEGENER's digital signage solutions for content localization.
The Digital Signage Expo is the world's largest international trade show and conference dedicated to digital signage, interactive technology, and Out-of-Home networks. The 2012 exhibition will be held in the Las Vegas Convention Center, March 7-8.
