Denver – May 23, 2012 – Three clients of digital signage solutions provider Four Winds Interactive (FWi) have won awards for excellence in deployment in the hospitality and casino industry along with the Washington State Ferries during a recent 2-month span.
In early March, the Digital Signage Expo (DSE), the world’s largest and longest running international conference and tradeshow dedicated exclusively to digital signage, interactive technology and digital out-of- home networks (DOOH), awarded FWi client The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas with a 2012 Bronze Apex Award in the Hospitality category. The Cosmopolitan’s work with FWi was recognized for “innovation and creativity” among a field of 88 entrants representing 18 countries.
In mid-April, the Digital Screenmedia Association (DSA) presented a 2012 Industry Excellence Award for “Best Travel Deployment – Digital Signage” to FWi client Washington State Ferries. Each year, DSA honors the best digital signage, mobile and self-service kiosk technology deployments across all vertical market segments.
Also in mid-April, Hospitality Technology (HT) magazine named the Flamingo Las Vegas one of three winners of the 2012 Visionary Awards. Each year, HT presents a select group of lodging companies with accolades for outstanding achievement in delivering technological excellence. HT recognized Flamingo Las Vegas as a “Customer-Facing/In- Room Technology Innovator” for its work with FWi. “We’re proud to serve award-winning organizations like The Cosmopolitan, Washington State Ferries and the Flamingo Las Vegas” said David Levin, President and CEO, Four Winds Interactive. “Like all of our clients, their dedication to creating the best experience for their customers inspires us to strive for continued innovation and excellence.”
FWI worked with The Cosmopolitan to implement and develop a comprehensive digital network of more than 200 displays throughout the property to serve multiple purposes, including: property wayfinding, meeting space signage, progressives, restaurant menus and more.
Also in 2011, FWi launched a pilot with Washington State Ferries to create a digital display network on two vessels and in two terminals. Screens carry important information for passengers regarding safety messages, vessel arrival and departure notices, lost item locator, and emergency alerts.
FWI worked with the Flamingo Las Vegas to implement an interactive signage network that serves as a wayfinding source for guests and visitors, as well as a loyalty kiosk for players.
The system can be used for players to login to their accounts, manage preferences, see available offers and send offers to mobile devices through SMS integration.
In January, FWi’s work with Washington State Ferries also won the Judges Choice Award in the 2012 DIGI Awards. Another recent point of distinction for FWi was being named late last year to the Top 20 list of Forbes magazine’s “America’s Most Promising Companies.”
