Global Restaurant Technology Leaders BrightSign and WAND Create Digital Menu Board Partnership

One-two Punch of Popular BrightSign Players and WAND Digital CMS Establishes Industry-leading Combination

With the adoption of digital menu boards accelerating amid industry recognition of revenue improvements and operational efficiency gains, BrightSign, the global market leader in digital signage players, and WAND Corporation, the global technology leader for the restaurant industry, together announce a partnership to deliver new jointly-developed capabilities.

WAND Digital is the only CMS system built with a comprehensive set of features and benefits engineered specifically to the needs of QSR and fast casual operations. True enterprise-class, scalable deployments across concepts, franchisees and groups of stores can be done with the push of a button, even from a mobile device, while still giving the appropriate level of control to managers in the field.

BrightSign is a pioneer and leader in the digital signage player market, with more than 500,000 players shipped globally. The company delivers market-leading technology and a proven digital menu board player solution to ensure installations will be 100% reliable.

"Digital menu boards must work all of the time, period," said Dave Perrill, President of WAND Corporation. "BrightSign and WAND share a deep understanding of how important uptime is to restaurant operations. This isn't simply an advertising vehicle - the content on the menu board directly impacts revenue."

The combination of WAND's cloud-based, QSR-specific software and restaurant management expertise and BrightSign's portfolio of solid-state devices with no moving parts to fail is highly compatible with both companies' shared mantra of providing unparalleled reliability for our mutual clients.

Jeff Hastings, CEO of BrightSign added, "BrightSign's commitment to deliver forward-thinking solutions for the restaurant industry is driving this new integration with WAND. Our collaboration puts innovative digital menu boards and other promotional displays within easy reach of restaurants of all sizes - from single-location cafes to expansive chains."

BrightSign's wide range of features across multiple player models, such as HTML5 support and interactive capabilities, are compelling to restaurant operators. This turnkey solution is delivered by WAND complete with creative content services, deployment capabilities and 24x7 operational support.

BrightSign and WAND will demonstrate this new digital menu board solution in BrightSign's booth #6067 at NRA Show 2015, the restaurant industry's premier tradeshow, taking place May 16-19 in Chicago, IL.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
