Over recent times, we have seen a phenomenal rise in the number of brands using Digital Signage to transform their traditional bricks-and-mortar stores and to engage their customers more effectively.

As we walk around shopping malls, fashion boutiques, retail stores, restaurants and even galleries, seeing LED Screens, LCD Screens or Interactive Way-finding Directory has become commonplace.
