NEC DISPLAY UNVEILS PRO ANALYTICS PLATFORM.
With NEC ALP Pro we've focused on building a forward thinking, future-ready analytics platform for our customers that enables them to make informed decisions to improve store performance and meet their goals, said Richard Ventura, Vice President of Strategy, NEC Display Solutions of America. ALP Pro is a completely unique platform that leverages the power of AI to automatically deliver optimized messaging, including being able to measure customer wait times and trigger content, as well as provide a deeper level of analytics to evaluate message performance.
NEC ALP Pro optimizes message delivery by automatically setting and recommending rules for target ads depending on non-identifying demographic data such as age, gender, events, and even weather. In addition, ALP Pro can also create and recommend content automatically for targeted segment shoppers by analyzing retailers' merchandise photos and videos.
By combining ALP Pro's powerful data analytics platform, we're able to take the guesswork out of delivering content, Ventura said. ALP Pro ensures retailers' content and messages are delivered to shoppers at the optimal moment to influence purchasing decisions, fueling intent and driving sales conversions.
ALP Pro can provide message viewer rates and message efficiency rates so retailers know exactly how impactful their ad campaigns are, Ventura said. Together with store performance data and variance reporting, ALP Pro delivers clearer and more actionable analytics and metrics.
As a complete platform, NEC ALP Pro consists of hardware, software, cloud services, managed services, and big data analytics as well as consulting, customized software, content creation, installation, and 24/7 support. Locally in-store, the platform consists of an edge computing appliance, cameras, and sensors. The system is designed with full API integration into key digital signage content management systems (CMS), allowing it to deliver and trigger content onto different media player platforms. The triggered content is then displayed on NEC Display large- or small-format displays.
With NEC ALP Pro, we're using AI combined with analytics to change how digital signage is used in retail, Ventura said. That's why we've integrated several partners to deliver a comprehensive, business intelligence platform.
ALP Pro integrates technology from Data Call for weather and location-based data, Sophatar for PoS integration and AI powered insights from Oculus360. In addition, ALP Pro is also integrated into the BrightSign platform, NAVORI, StratosMedia, and Signagelive content management systems (CMS), and Microsoft Azure and Intel for infrastructure. The platform uses NEC EVA for anonymous video analytics.
