Van Gogh Museum
Video Walls, Outdoor & Indoor Digital Signage
The famous Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam started using Summit DIS’ Digital Signage system, both hardware & software, in 2006. The displayed dynamic content, optimizes the flow of visitors, shortens waiting times and informs the multilingual, international public visiting the museum, both inside as well as outdoors.
At both entrances and within the Van Gogh Museum a professional, state-of-the-art Digital Signage environment has been installed. The total installation consists of two large Video Walls and more than seventy display, indoors and outdoors.
Except serving as an efficient and sophisticated wayfinding solution, the digital signage solution displays useful information for the visitors. The shown content contributes highly to complete the Van Gogh Museum experience.
All displays are being operated by the Summit DIS WebCMS and Digital Signage platform. The respective employees of the museum take care of the renewal of the content, the content management and the content planning themselves.

Benu / Mediq Apotheken
Digital Signage displays, combined with Queuing Kiosks
Benu (formally known as Mediq) Pharmacies, with over 300 locations, uses Summit DIS’ Digital Signage solution already since 2007. From that moment, Benu has used the Digital Signage displays as a dynamic communication channel towards its clients. At a later stage separate ‘Queuing Kiosks’ were added to the signage solution. The comprehensive real-time management information module of the Queuing software is integrated in the dashboard of the original WebCMS environment. Based on the data retrieved from the queuing system individual pharmacies have an even clearer picture of their total operation in relation to customers visits versus staffing. The sequence numbers are displayed through a link with the own Benu Backoffice environment.
Briefing and/or instructions on new content or on content which needs to be updated/changed run uncomplicated and unambiguously via the Summit DIS communication portal, SignConnect.
Today, product offerings in combination with queuing information play an important role in the ‘message of Benu’s digital communication inside the pharmacies’.
Guest information and Wayfinding
The Accor Group, European market leader in the hospitality and tourism industry and worldwide leader in hospitality services, has hotels in over 100 countries. In the Netherlands Accor is well known for its brand names; Sofitel, Pullman, Novotel, Mercure, Ibis Styles and Ibis budget.
Accor the Netherlands selected Summit DIS in 2005 as its preferred Digital Signage supplier. In all of the Dutch Accor hotels the Summit DIS’ solution has been deployed for guest information, general communication, brand development and wayfinding. In most of the Dutch Accor hotels displays have been installed near the reception desks and in the hotel lobbies. Various hotels also use the Summit DIS’ Digital Signage solution as a professional wayfinding system for their conference centres.
The most important objective for Accor’s display communication is informing its guests as complete as possible. It is a mix of information about the hotel (and conference centre) itself, the surrounding area, the respective city and all other hotel related matters.
It was of decisive importance for Accor that Summit DIS’ Digital Signage & WebCMS solution was simple to use, intuitive and self-explanatory. In fact, for operating the WebCMS system the hotel staff do not need a user training or even a manual.
In collaboration with the Marketing Department of Accor in the Netherlands, the Summit DIS content-team has developed and implemented DIS the content for all of the respective hotels / brands.
