LEESBURG, VA and CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – January 22, 2010 – Precision Tune Auto Care announced today that they have partnered with ScreenScape to create a digital signage network that connects their retail locations. A screen display will be used in their auto care facilities to provide valuable information to their customers starting with special offers, the range of services they offer and their benefits.

Kevin Bates, Senior Vice President, Marketing commented, “We have wanted to move away from the old-school looking menu boards in our facilities for some time now. Our ScreenScape digital displays add a professional touch and create a more dynamic atmosphere in our service waiting areas. The screens are more versatile than manual boards. Photos and videos can be added easily which wasn’t possible before. The reaction from our customers has been great. We are a high tech, high performance business, so our image now better matches our service.”

Precision Tune Auto Care already operates 5 ScreenScape basic accounts in separate retail locations. A basic account grants full membership in the ScreenScape Community creating access to a host of shared content and a directory of fellow ScreenScape members representing potential cross-marketing or promotional opportunities.

Bates continued, “We expect to roll out 40 to 50 more locations this year, and another 100 next year. We love the potential for sharing content between locations and promoting ourselves on a digital signage network.”

Kevin Dwyer, President and CEO of ScreenScape noted, “This is another great example of the ideal fit that ScreenScape is for franchisees looking for more onsite marketing punch. Corporate marketing messages can be created centrally and easily shared among franchisees, allowing for powerful brand building over the entire network of displays. Each franchise owner can operate their display autonomously and also access corporate content to create consistency of service between sites.”
