Toronto-based Dorsey Digital Media Inc. (DDM), a leading Digital-Out-of-Home (DOOH) media services provider announced today the successful deployment of new technology across 65 of Western Financial Group's network. Based in High River, Alberta, Western Financial Group is western Canada's largest property and casualty brokerage with 96 offices in 87 communities across British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.
"Dorsey Digital Media has been producing our digital signage content for more than four years
and has always demonstrated expert knowledge and professionalism in all aspects of digital
signage," commented Danielle Bernier, Corporate Media Coordinator for Western Financial
Group. "It was an easy decision for us to turn to them to specify a new technology solution to
replace our legacy system. To date, the results of the project have been seamless and virtually
unproblematic," added Bernier.
Dorsey Digital Media specified the SCALA software platform - deployed on Western Financial
Group's server and managed by their internal Business Systems and Technology team. The
playback system consists of AOPEN DE7000 media players driving content to a combination
of 32 and 40 inch SAMSUNG LCDs. The content program continues to expand, promoting
Western Financial Group's growing portfolio of insurance and banking products targeted at rural
and farming communities. An in-depth case study will be released later this year further detailing
the technology solution and the communication and content strategies.
"Our consultative process and agnostic approach to technology combined with Western
Financial Group's specific content management and programming requirements, led us to
specify a custom solution that met their exact needs," commented Stephen Dorsey, CEO
Dorsey Digital Media. "We look forward to updating the rest of their offices in early 2012, and
continuing to support their evolving content programming requirements," added Dorsey.
