Companies know that digital signage can deliver dramatic sales lift when used to its full advantage. Leveraging the power of a pilot starts with aligning test metrics with business objectives. But first you’ll need to anticipate the ways you can get stuck and apply remedies, so that you can scale to an impactful digital deployment.
A pilot done right means you won’t overinvest in a campaign. The tests let you execute cost-effective ideas and see if they achieve desired results. If so, great. If not, fail fast and move on! The challenge is how to measure your test’s effectiveness and, once you get a winner, how to roll it out.

Once you have the objectives in place, you can plan entire campaigns around them with your digital signage.”
Your test could answer questions like these:
Does the proposed digital experience increase store traffic?
Does it increase sales of the branded items being promoted?
Does digital interactivity increase basket size?
