March 31, 2011 – St. Petersburg, Florida – JANUS Displays released details about their upcoming project with McDonald’s Corporation/Hamburger University; a digital signage network that will significantly improve wayfinding and communication efforts at the University.
JANUS Displays will provide Hamburger U with numerous LED screens, which will serve as Event Directories of various sizes, guiding students and visitors around campus. They will include a JANUS designed static map, event/class schedule and coordinating room numbers for each of the class locations. Several 19-inch screens, will serve as individual room boards outside each meeting space, showcasing the ongoing event with the capability to also include an upcoming event and other multimedia files. The system will interface with Envision, the University’s event management software, to create instant updates, providing visitors and guests with the most current information.
McDonald’s Corporation selected JANUS Displays from an extensive list of vendors, to create a network of unique displays throughout the facility, making it easier for students to navigate around campus, while also providing them with high-end digital displays that will improve visitor/student satisfaction and drive home the McDonald’s brand standards.
Sharon Morrow, President of Morrow Technologies and founder of JANUS Displays said, “We’re excited about the relationship we’ve built with McDonald’s Corporation, and look forward to taking on this project. Not only will the JANUS digital signage system provide another level of cohesiveness to the facility, through our uniquely developed wayfinding tools, it will further enhance the branding efforts of a global company.”
Located in Oak Brook, Illinois, Hamburger University’s Training Headquarters provides advanced training and leadership skills to individuals within the McDonald’s Corporation.
