Philips Professional Display Solutions has announced the launch of a series of brand new programs — offering product deals, finance packages and sales incentives — all via a new dedicated website designed to help businesses ease back into work, post lockdown.
Conceived as a direct response to the current market conditions and challenges faced by businesses throughout Europe, “InSync” encompasses three programs, providing support for Philips’ installation partners and end customers.
Already live, the programs are designed to deliver benefits that stretch into the longer term, rather than as a short-term fix, according to the company. Programs include mix-and-match menus that include competitive access to some of the latest innovations developed by Philips Professional Display Solutions and a range of offers, incentives, promotions and commercial support.
Life After Lockdown: Unlocked
Designed for its installation partners, “Life After Lockdown: Unlocked” is a new program to deliver features, offers and commercial assistance, supporting both businesses and their staff out of lockdown and longer-term. According to Philips, Unlocked was part of an internal decision to reroute money generally spent on events, exhibitions and marketing activities. The company also says this is its biggest-ever customer support program to date — offering a wide range of benefits, helping to generate new unique deals for end customers, while introducing additional lucrative business rebates and fully tax-paid employee vouchers.
Other highlights from Unlocked include:
- Monthly exclusive pricing
- Timely and relevant offers across digital signage
- LED and Pro TV
- A discounted five-year de-re warranty
- Financing solutions
Total Care for Hospitality
Designed exclusively for hospitality, Philips PDS has introduced a new Total Care for Hospitality menu, which includes a range of solutions to help hoteliers and their installation partners to reassure and attract guests while giving them the opportunity to bring forward longer-term strategies for implementing cutting-edge technologies and personalized experiences with a supportive financial setup.
A new range of leasing and finance packages are available from PPDS Finance Solutions — including the possibility to defer the start of payments for up to six months — opening the door for hotels to invest in their long-term technology plans. With the plan, resellers can bundle accessories and other installation elements, including brackets, mounts and the installation itself, together with their Philips hospitality TVs and displays, into the plan.
The program also highlights the benefits of the impending Android P upgrade for Philips MediaSuite TVs, which will bring access to Netflix embedded and Google Voice Control. When coupled with the TV’s Chromecast built-in and its unique access to the Google Play Store, features will deliver on the enhanced home from home streaming and gaming experiences that guests are returning with.
Philips Professional Display Solutions is also offering a special price on a 5-year warranty period across its hospitality TV and digital signage ranges.
Health and safety requirements are another big challenge for hospitality in a post-COVID world. Today, Philips Professional Display Solutions is also announcing the launch of its brand new, cloud-based remote-control app — PPDS GuestConnect — allowing guests to control their in-room TVs with their personal devices. Guests can download the app by scanning a unique QR code when they check in to the hotel or switch on their TV. The link will be severed the moment they check out, and a new link will be created for the next guests.
As an alternative, Philips PDS has extended the availability of its wipe-clean remote controls, which feature an easy-to-wipe design with flat buttons.
InSync also provides a home for Philips Professional Display Solutions’ PeopleCount growing range of capacity management signage solutions, developed in conjunction with its partners, including Bosch Security Systems and now, NowSignage.
