The global health crisis has dramatically re-shaped how retailers and food service businesses are delivering customer experiences and pushing brick-and-mortar service delivery. Retailers and restaurant owner/operators have seen big up-ticks in the use of curbside and parking lot signage, drive thru and mobile order/pickup screens, and added digital messaging for everything from queue management to take-out windows. 

In this webinar, industry experts will discuss how digital signage technology is enabling the essential changes for businesses. Panelists will discuss how and why technology is being used, the implications on everything from operating budgets to sales, and why these are long-term changes and not fixes tied to COVID-19.

A monthly series of highly-topical digital signage conversations, each Power Hour kicks off with an industry update on the latest in the digital signage realm followed by a roundtable discussion for a broad cross-section of input on these topics.
