Press release September 4, 2009 Multimedia

Acquire’s Kiosk Developer software has been used to create a well received interactive digital wayfinder on large display pods at Gloucester Quays UK shopping centre.

Five giant digital six sheet pods running the Acquire KD (Kiosk Developer) software, have been recently installed by ASG Media, at the new Gloucester Quays waterside shopping and leisure centre, adjacent to Gloucester’s historic docks.

As part of the ten day opening celebrations, the brand new shopping centre was opened by fashion designer Gok Wan and integrates a designer centre, waterways museum, antiques centre, multi-screen cinemas, bars and restaurants on the quayside. Forty five of the fifty six mall designer shops are now open with the remainder opening soon.

At 2000mm(H)x800mm(W) and just 250mm deep, the double-sided, portrait oriented pods, manufactured by Esprit Digital and Operated by ASG Media, are designed to minimize sightlines whilst ensuring impact and media presence. The pods, using Acquire to display their interactive content, show a mix of advertising and other rich media in order to provide shoppers with a touch-screen enabled digital sign. Integrating two 57-inch full HD LCD panels, the pods feature dynamic content designed and developed by the creative team at Working Solutions.

The interactive mall guide features a host of content innovations all developed by Working Solutions, to maximize communication of the mall’s products and services. As well as the usual live clock there is a map and store directory wayfinder that allows users to navigate their way around the mall. The Acquire software also interprets and graphically displays the delivery of live internet feeds for weather, traffic and shopping mall news. And, thanks to Acquire, all of this content is able to be configured by the shopping mall personnel themselves.  Another very useful feature is the gift card balance reader. In conjunction with VISA, the gift card provider, Working Solutions have developed a secure system which acts in the same way as an ATM, so that Gloucester Quays’ customers can check their remaining balance before shopping simply by using their card at the kiosk.
