Signagelive goes platinum with Samsung

12 Feb 2016

Signagelive has achieved Platinum Partner status with Samsung on the vendor’s new SSSP (Samsung smart signage platform) partner program.

Signagelive’s system on chip (SoC) software enables Samsung’s SSSP system users to incorporate interactive functionality on static digital signage networks.

Jason Cremins, Signagelive chief executive, says the status is ‘a formidable achievement’.

“We have worked in close partnership with the Samsung SSSP technical team from the outset to develop a portfolio of out of the box applications for key industries so the Samsung SSSP could be promoted as a turnkey solution,” Cremins says.

“Our ability to support contextual and responsive applications significantly enhances that offering.”

The cloud-based digital signage technology platform provider was one of the first companies to develop a commercial offering for SSSP and says as a result, all Samsung Smart displays, regardless of size and orientation, have been configured to support Signagelive software as standard.

The company says its Platinum status signals continued technical support of Samsung’s platform and ‘outstanding’ commercial success in securing a number of high-profile contracts, including a Vodafone Hutchison Australia deal, signed late last year. That deal has so far included more than 1000 SSSP licenses, making it Signagelive’s largest project to date.

Signagelive says along with its network of strategic channel partners, it has sold several thousands licenses since the launch of the original platform in 2014.

Clients include Lithuanian Post Office, Maceys Convenience Store and Blinds.com.
