Watch the Hyundai ScreenScape display“We find video to be a very effective way to communicate with our customers the benefits of driving and owning a Hyundai vehicle,” said Michael Handy, Parts Marketing Manager for Hyundai Canada. “ScreenScape gives us the ability to deliver video directly to customers inside our dealerships. It also helps us coordinate our marketing efforts with dealers and add another in-store communications channel to inform and entertain customers.”

ScreenScape is a software platform that helps businesses engage audiences inside real world places using Internet-enabled digital displays. Using a ScreenScape Group, Hyundai Canada is able to form its own place-based media network consisting of its own dealerships or any other business that is a member of the ScreenScape Community.

Handy added: “We’re constantly looking for ways to communicate more effectively with Hyundai customers. ScreenScape offers a video distribution platform that was both powerful and practical to use, allowing us to leverage our existing investments in online and broadcast video production and use them at a local level. ”

The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T was recently named 2013 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year by the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC), which is an example of a potential message Hyundai Canada could use in video content in dealerships nationwide.

“We’d like to welcome Hyundai Canada to the ScreenScape Community,” said Kevin Dwyer, CEO of ScreenScape. “They join a vibrant automotive community already using ScreenScape which includes new car dealers, tire centres, quick lube operators, and parts retailers. It is gratifying to see so many interesting partnerships in this industry being expressed through place-based media.”
