Software: The OCFF® Digital Displays & Menu Boards application
ADUSA has created a uniquely integrated system to address these requirements and enable grocery retailers to cost-effectively manage content across a network of digital displays and menu boards.
The solution is fully integrated with ADUSA’s Omni-Channel Fresh -Foods® (OCFF®) product suite (self-ordering kiosks, order-taking tablets, web ordering, mobile ordering, queue management, basic queueing,integration with scale management systems and integrations with Mettler Toledo scales), yet can alsostand on its own, as an independent system.
Integration with the OCFF® suite provides numerous benefits; most importantly, ensuring that product content and pricing displayed on the menu boards come from one source: The same source used by the point of sale systems, scales, self-ordering kiosks, online and mobile ordering, etc.), and is therefore reliably accurate, without additional intervention from a user.
By combining the automated content feed with the system’s central management tools, ADUSA’s system enables users to effectively synchronize content from the enterprise down to the division level, and ultimately down to the individual stores; on all digital displays and menu boards, not only in the fresh foods areas, but throughout the store.
The visual editor (DD Manager) provides an efficient way for users at the enterprise, or division, level, to incorporate data sources for pricing and product content, as well as graphical elements, advertisements, content from suppliers, etc., and do it all on a central desktop, with the ability to push out the changes to an entire network of digital displays and menu boards.
