Projects: FirstOntario Lights Up Credit Union Screens

December 11, 2013 by Dave Haynes


FirstOntario Credit Union has started rolling out a branch-level digital signage network using ADFLOW Networks and intended to promote banking services to customers and prospective accounts.

New branches have been outfitted with a minimum of two screens per location, installed in waiting areas, teller locations and vestibules (don’t see that word often anymore). Screens display multiple messaging to members that showcase core products and services, highlight community involvement and keep bank rates up to date.

The plan is to complete the transition of all 23 branches around Southern Ontario by 2015 and eventually introduce interactive stations. One location, in Dundas (about 45 minutes southwest of Toronto), has a stack set of high-bright external facing digital screens aimed at pulling in pedestrians passing by the high street location.

One of the goals of going digital was working with local vendors, says a release, so Burlington, Ontario-based ADFLOW fit the bill nicely (their offices are close enough to hit with my potato trebuchet).

But Karen Bragdon, Senior Manager Branch Marketing Strategy for FirstOntario, says ADFLOW earned the business through nicely delivering a wide set of services ,from conception through creative and deployment. “They are definitely a vendor we can grow with as our digital endeavours expand.”
