Posted by Jesse Cameron on May 16, 2017 2:33:13 PM
Burnips Equipment Co. has five different locations throughout the state of Michigan. Their newest store home of Dorr, MI has an extensive line of products that customers can buy new, used or rent. Their new opening and deep line of product offerings and options, makes implementing an LED sign complementary to their business.
Praise Sign Company, Burnips Equipment Co. and Electro-Matic Visual collaborated to make this great LED display application happen. " It has been a great experience working with Alan the West Michigan rep for Electro-Matic visual. A great big thank you for all the help you've provided for this Burnips project. Without you this would not have been so successful. Your products, service, and followthrough are top notch." - Robert Prindle, Praise Sign Company

With their newly installed LED sign they are able to inform passing traffic about their newest products that they just got in and are running a limited time special. Passing by Burnips Equipment you may not be able to tell that they offer rental equipment. With their new LED display they can make it known they do offer rental equipment, so you don’t have to buy equipment for a one-time job.

Purchasing a new tractor is like buying a car. It can be expensive, but you have options and just like a car you can buy it new or used and have financing available. Burnips now has the flexibility to advertise their financing options on their LED display. This will help them give exposure to the numerous options available to customers when buying new products at Burnips.

Front Street Insurance Agency Takes Advantage of Location With Installing An LED Message Center

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Apr 10, 2017 3:05:31 PM
Front Street Insurance of Traverse City, MI was looking for a creative way to take advantage of being well traveled street just blocks from downtown Traverse City, MI. Front Street Insurance and Andrew Kohlmann, owner of Image360 of Traverse City, they concluded that an LED message center from Electro-Matic Visual would be best for this application because of the slow moving, high volume, traffic passing by and Electro-Matic Visual’s dependable tech support and training team.

“Electro-Matic Visual’s tech support team dealt directly with our end user and was able to have a person on-site to make installation and training go very smoothly for all involved.”- Andrew Kohlmann, Owner, Image360 Traverse City

Front Street Insurance and Image360 evaluated many different options and specs before deciding to install the full color, high-resolution 10mm LED display. The reasoning to go with a high-resolution display was for a several different reasons. The first being is that it looks outstanding, even when you are close to the display. The second is because with the slow moving traffic, passing viewers will be able to read it clearer than a lower resolution display. And third, the full color high-resolution display draws the attention to the business and sign, acting like a personal billboard for their business.
Electro-Matic Visual is happy to see Front Street Insurance having success with their new full color, high-resolution LED display and taking advantage of their location to communicate to the slow moving high traffic street!

Their team & engineers were able to custom program their units to allow them to work with their regular software to display custom messages & tie in with the counter system to record the number of spots open in each parking garage on the same display.
