NEWARK, N.J., April 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- National Retail Solutions (NRS), a subsidiary of IDT Corporation (NYSE: IDT) operating one of the nation's fastest growing point-of-sale networks for independent retailers, today announced that it is leveraging its point-of-sale (POS) terminal network to provide consumer-facing advertising in bodegas and other independent retail stores nationwide.
NRS retail terminals feature dual facing high-definition monitors. The customer-facing display shows a split screen during transactions, displaying the register tape on one side and on the other side, special offers and promotions from a variety of advertisers including consumer packaged good (CPG) providers. Before and after a transaction, the display rotates between static and video ads at adjustable increments.
"Retailers love the advertising potential of our POS network because it helps promote their products and increase their sales," said Elie Y. Katz, President of NRS. "We help these bodegas and other small independent urban retailers compete more effectively with bigger box stores and retail chains."
With over 2500 stores already participating in the rapidly growing NRS retail advertising network, consumer package goods providers and other advertisers now have a powerful tool to reach hundreds of thousands of customers a day, primarily in urban, Hispanic and other ethnically focused markets.
Eli Korn, VP of NRS, said, "Our high definition, consumer-facing terminals provide CPG suppliers with a powerful new channel to reach urban consumers as they make in-store purchasing decisions. Across our rapidly growing urban POS network, NRS already provides over two million impressions a day nationwide with an average transaction length of between 30 and 120 seconds."
Hannah Kestenbaum, NRS Media Manager, boasted of developing relationships with ad agencies and CPG companies.
"The advantage of a point of purchase ad is clear," says Kestenbaum. "We are excited to show how effectively our network can extend marketing reach in the Hispanic market. This ad space reaches the targeted audience with proven impressions. Not many other companies can guarantee that consumers are seeing their ads," she said.
