Wayne County Parks use LED Displays to Communicate with Customers

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Aug 20, 2019 9:57:30 AM
 
Customer
Wayne County Parks is a division of Wayne County Public Services that is committed to enhancing the quality of life for families and citizens of the 43 communities of Wayne County. It hosts numerous events throughout the year.

Background
One event in particular includes the Lightfest, which takes place at Hines Park. The Lightfest is the Midwest's longest drive-through holiday light display, stretching approximately 4.5 miles, featuring more than 47 giant animated displays, and more than one million lights!
 


Objective

Outside of their website, print, and banners, Wayne County Parks had no way to display news or any other important park information. They wanted a better way to communicate the dates and times of not only their annual Lightfest event, but all of their events year-round.

Solution

The LED Sign chosen from Electro-Matic Visual was actually the same design as one of our trailer demos, but with an additional custom wrap. This allows Wayne County Lightfest the flexibility to put their sign where they want during peak hours, or move its location for different events. For further assistance throughout the year, Electro-Matic provided a permanent 16mm LED sign on the Hines Park premises as well. 

Benefits

The information on the upgraded LED display helped the line to move faster and more efficientlymaking the experience for everyone much more enjoyable. Considering this is a seasonal operation for Wayne County Parks, they are able to transfer the sign to other events in the spring, summer, and early fall.

Electro-Matic Visual's Fusion LED Sign Gives A West Michigan Car Wash A Competitive Advantage

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Mar 21, 2018 10:39:43 AM
 
Joymar Inc. is the parent company to three different car washes in West Michigan. Featured in this success story is Jenison Car Wash, located in Jenison, MI and just south west of Grand Rapids. Jenison Car Wash and general manager Greg Russo, chose Electro-Matic Visual to add a Fusion LED display to consistently attract more customers and to stay competitive.

Jenison Car Wash believed that static signs and traditional reader boards, like they had before, was just too much of a nuisance and were not effective. Having an employee change a static sign daily, or weekly, is time consuming. Jenison was seeing that they were spending too much time manually changing their reader board for a message that was getting overlooked.

From a competitive standpoint, Jenison Car Wash felt that adding an Electro-Matic Visual Fusion LED display would separate them from potential competition. An LED sign gives businesses the opportunity to have an attractive, modern look while connecting with passing traffic.

Jenison Car Wash has been enjoying their new full color, 16mm, 4’x8’, LED display and they have been seeing great results. Their three-month subscriptions and monthly memberships have seen a significant boost. They also advertised that they were hiring on their LED sign and got convincingly more applications when they tried the same thing with their old static reader board. Jenison Car Wash chose Electro-Matic Visual over the competition for several important reasons, including:
  • Customer service
  • Image quality
  • Five year parts and labor warranty
Because of what Electro-Matic Visual’s provides and after the success that Jenison Car Wash has had with their LED display they are expecting to add one to their Cascade location.

Posted by Jesse Cameron on Dec 15, 2016 2:52:55 PM

 
The Leader Dogs for the Blind in Rochester, Michigan was under a 14.5 million dollar renovation to upgrade the whole facility. The new building allows for the best living and learning environment for the dogs. The upgrade to the veterinary clinic will also allow for the best care to be given to the canines by adding 35% more space and new technology. 
 
The Leader Dogs for the Blind focused on improving their facilities and their image.

They decided to reach out to Electro-Matic again to upgrade their signage to match their new facility upgrades. 
 
"We are very happy with the attention we receive from our new 16mm, full-color LED display. It gives us a lot of flexibility in design. Our new sign is much more visible than our old monochrome sign and gives us more ability to capture the attention of ongoing traffic."-Rachelle Kniffen, Leader Dogs for the Blind
