The system combines digital signage with powerful artificial intelligence and augmented reality, creating a digital signage network that can adapt its output to suit each viewer individually.
20.20 business development director Mariann Wenckheim that the competition links directly to the kind of work it undertakes for retailers. “We really care about innovation and change… and our role is to help retailers implement the kind of changes they need to make, and we love collaborating with people to have new ideas,” she says.
Sensape co-founder Justus Nagel says the company’s product is evolving, adding more element to its modular system. “Brand and retailers both like the functionality it offers, but they don’t both need all of the features it offers… making it modular allows them to offer a personalised shopping experience.”
“The winner really stood out for its multifunctional capabilities, that allow it to tailor content and collect a huge amount of data,” says 20.20 managing director Jim Thompson.
