UK Manufacturer Of Point-Of-Sale Products Highlights Must-Have Display Items For Christmas Promotions

Stuck for inspiration this season on how to display any last minute seasonal point-of-sale? Well there’s still plenty of time to order items for the run-up to Christmas, and to make product selection easier, UK Point Of Sale Group Limited has come up with a quick-fix solution – a Christmas wish list.

The UK manufacturer of point-of-sale (UK Point Of Sale) materials has created the must-have list as it has been reported that consumers can look forward to seeing significant promotions and early winter sales this year. So UK POS believed a quick call stating the Christmas wish-list would assist retailers with their orders during this extremely busy period.

With UK POS’ best possible prices and next day delivery available, the list features six point-of-sale options, including:
– A1 Pavement A Boards Sign to get customers in store
– A4 Snap Frames to promote Christmas special offers and deals with interchangeable posters
– Shelf Talkers for stand out pricing displays
– A4 pallet Stacking Card Holders for large displays of product promotions
– Flag Sign Holders to catch the customers attention with special offers and deals
– Extending Wire Hooks for ceiling posters to guide customers through the store

It was Rob Templeman, the chief executive of Debenhams, who predicted that consumers can look forward to significant promotions this Christmas with retailers looking to boost revenues after a somewhat turbulent year*. However UK POS fears that retail outlets could soon become over run with offers or overcrowded sales, when in fact retailers should be taking the less is more approach.

UK POS’ sales and marketing director, Debra Jamieson advises:
“Overcrowding shelf space with various offers and promotions can be off putting for consumers and leave shoppers confused as to what product is truly the best value for money. Being clear and concise about your brand offerings is more important than ever this Christmas to ensure retailers secure those all important sales.”

“Retailers need to make consumers feel that an offer is too good to be missed. As such, we are advising our customers to rotate displays during the run up to Christmas, creating first come first serve offers that encourage that immediate impulse response.”

UK POS’ next day delivery service means that retailer’s can select their must-have display products and have them delivered in time for the Christmas rush. For further information call UK POS on 0161 431 4400 and quote: Christmas Wish List.

POD Retail Displays Have Launched Their Innovative New Website With Hundreds Of Retail Display Products

POD Retail has branched out from the exhibition industry into the retail industry with their wide range of glass display cabinets. They have gone on to incorporate a range of picture and poster display for point of sale, cable and rod mounted displays for effective window displays, queue management systems including point of purchase display stands and outdoor retail display products.

POD Retail Displays

Not only can POD Retail Displays now provide a greater choice of retail display products, but also information displays, exhibition stands and outdoor display equipment.

Joe Plosky commented on the new website developments “Over the past few months we have been working really hard to get a functional, user friendly, informative website to display our great range of retail products. Our display cabinet range has been a huge success, and we know our other retail products add great value to retailers. We know all of our customers are going to benefit from the changes.”

The careful selection of all these retail display products has resulted in a great choice of quality shop displays at reasonable prices. We have selected high quality retail products that provide value for money, but that will also stand up to the strains that a public environment can put on display products.

The range of retail display products include light box displays, cable mounted displays, freestanding display stands, literature stands and in queue management systems.

In this difficult period for many retailers, it is good to have a company that can provide small shops and stores to large corporate companies with the retail displays they need to effectively promote their products and services.

A Boards, Pavement Signs, Forecourt signs, Promotional counters and Picture and poster displays are just some of the retail display equipment that can help retailers advertise and promote their goods. All these display products and more can be found on POD Retail Displays website at http://www.pod-retail-display-systems.co.uk.

Displaysense Has Been Carrying Out Big Changes To Its European Online Advertising Campaigns In Order To Meet The Demands Of Its International Customers

According to Displaysense, the UK’s leading supplier of display cabinets and mannequins, many companies are not tackling all of the issues surrounding international language barriers and could be missing out on business as a result.

Due to the success of the company’s European website Displaysense.com, Displaysense has been bombarded over recent months with more and more seemingly unusual enquiries for products, which has largely been due to poor translation and misunderstanding of products and their purpose.

The company’s sales team has faced strange requests over the past year, including a customer from France searching for a ‘naked female model’, when they meant mannequin, and a lady from Germany enquiring “if your Fach came with screws”, with ‘Fach’ meaning ‘shelf’ in German. They have also dealt with partial translations from European customers, such as the Polish customer who was looking for some cack stands, when they meant cake stands.

In order to better service their international customers and avoid further embarrassment to the Displaysense sales team, keyword translations are to be added to the website’s search tool. As in the example of the shelving unit, the search tool will direct foreign users who use such phrases or words to the correct product and provide the facility to pay in Euros rather than sterling.

Steve Whittle, the marketing manager at Displaysense commented: “This is only the start of our international “driving business forward” campaign, where we shall aim to optimise our European site to offer the best in customer search results and the products put before them. Eventually we would hope to offer domain specific sites that are fully translated, but that is some time off yet.”

With changes in global trade impacting upon all forms of businesses on a day to day basis, Displaysense has recognised that it is now more important than ever to ensure that communication barriers are broken down and businesses focus their strategies upon the wider world.

Displaysense Is Introducing A New Range Of Hanging Body Form Busts After Significant Demand From Customers

During this recession, businesses are learning that they must adapt quickly as well as work smarter and more efficiently in order to make the most out of every pound. Such companies are hoping the strategy of supplying more to customers in the way of product choice and services will ensure they are leading the UK’s economic recovery.

Displaysense, the country’s leading supplier of display cabinets and leaflet holders believe they are doing their part in offering more to businesses and consumers by introducing more than 200 new products over the past month alone as well as offering more in the way of information to existing and prospective customers.

One such new product launch that is offering more to the companies customers is their new range of hanging body form busts. This range is a first for Displaysense who are now supplying value sale packs in the form of “mega deal” packs as standard across the range of busts that offers greater savings to customers.

The company has already received a number of enquiries for the mega deal packs of hanging busts throughout August, from a number of clothing retailers through to a paintball centre wanting to use the items for training and target practice, which has made the company think broader when it comes to promoting these products

Steve Whittle, the marketing manager at Displaysense, commented on this new wave of product launches by saying “We are incredibly proud of every new product that we introduce as we fully understand that in a market such as this we cannot afford to stand still for very long. We are hoping to launch further mega deal packs in the future that could offer even greater savings, which is a much needed considering the current fragile nature of the retail sector.”

Not only have the company been introducing new products on a regular basis, but Displaysense has also been improving its new website with a faster site search function, allowing for easier customer access to products such as business card holders and whiteboards. The business has also embraced customer self service as another area to improve efficiencies, with the introduction of service forms, so customers can make enquiries or raise issues at any time of the day.

With new customer feedback and returns processes also recently introduced by the company in a bid to aid their customers, proving that Displaysense is not only pushing the message of economic recovery, but are also far from going bust anytime soon.

Displaysense To Sell Relaxation And Motivation

Displaysense, the Hertfordshire-based retail display provider, is looking to play its part in stimulating the UK by sourcing office display equipment that provides a healthier, enjoyable working environment.

Displaysense To Sell Relaxation And Motivation

Displaysense, the country’s leading supplier of shelving units and display cabinets, is encouraging businesses around the country to create more home like environments for their employees to work in, in order to encourage productivity and increase motivation.

To do this, the company is launching its “Late Summer Break Out” campaign that will see the introduction of ergonomic computer desks as well as other display items that might be expected at home such as plants, comfy sofas, paintings, lamps and other relaxing display equipment.

In order to spread the “Late Summer Break Out” message, Displaysense will also be sending leaflets out to a selection of their business customers highlighting the importance of a relaxed, fun working environment. The leaflet will show how they can make the most out of their office space by using some of the new Displaysense display systems, as well as ideas to assist in motivating the workforce.

Steve Whittle, the marketing manager at Displaysense, commented on the concept, “A lot of people spend the majority of their days at work and constant exposure to these stressful environments can not only lead to a loss in productivity, but also serious health issues. Having fun is a basic human requirement and we believe that businesses should do more to make employees comfortable and provide a slice of home and pleasurable places to escape within their office environment.”

Motivational theorist, Abraham Maslow, noted in the 1940’s that employees have certain criteria that need fulfilling in the work environment and the basic psychological needs, such as having fun, are the most important requirements of all.

Regardless of the size of the business, the UK is reportedly working longer hours than other countries in the EU, emphasising the need for a more relaxed workplace.

The UK’s Leading Retail Display Provider, Is Hoping To Tap Into The Wave Of Celebrity Success By Launching A “Celebrity I-Doll” Mannequin Competition For The Summer

Displaysense who sells a wide variety of literature holders and other shop fittings, has received requests in the past for alternative mannequin styles such as mannequins with bigger rear ends, but never has the company considered celebrity style imitation mannequins.

The retail display provider is set to launch the competition over the coming months by emailing existing customers, encouraging them to email and write in to Displaysense and state which celebrity they would most like a mannequin designed to look like and their reasons why.

The idea for the competition came about after an eager customer who had previously purchased a display cabinet from Displaysense, wrote in half way through July asking if a Marilyn Monroe mannequin could be created so he could kiss and fantasise over the fibreglass celebrity imitation.

Steve Whittle the marketing manager at Displaysense commented on the unusual competition by saying “We are hoping that our customers will see the funny side of the celebrity I-doll competition, especially during the summer holidays where kids are also encouraged to take part, although we feel that it is the parents that might be more occupied with the competition than the kids. As for the inspiration behind the competition, we are happy that customers are using our mannequins for a number of uses but we do not recommend getting too personal with a mannequin as there could be some undesired side effects”

Once the competition winner is announced, Displaysense will be contacting the celebrities agent to discuss the possibilities of producing mannequins of the celebrity.

According to numerous online celebrity polls, Displaysense could expect to receive requests for the likes of Megan Fox, Jennifer Aniston, George Clooney and Jude Law mannequins, thanks to their award winning legs, bums, tums and good looks. There can however only be one winner in the search for the UK’s first and only “celebrity I-doll” mannequin competition and entrants who feel they can supply Displaysense with that star quality, will need to email or write in to see if they can be this year’s winner.

Displaysense Equip Retailers In Their Fight Back Against Shop Lifters

Displaysense has reported a large rise in demand for its security related products as retailers seek security equipment and alternative preventative methods that can be introduced to aid in the fight on crime.

displaysense

In better times, retailers would be happy to see products ‘flying off the shelves’. However, the recession has lead to an increase in the reported cases of shop lifting, which is costing the economy billions of pounds a year.

In order to stop shop lifters in their tracks, retailers are turning to companies such as Displaysense, for security equipment and alternative preventative methods that can be introduced to aid in the fight on crime.

The Hertfordshire company, which sells a variety of shop display equipment through to lockable security display cabinets has reported a 46% increase in the demand for security related products over the past year, emphasizing the changing demands on retailers.

After receiving numerous requests f r o m customer, Displaysense has recently introduced a new range of security equipment including safes, locks and security mirrors that should help act as a deterrent in the nations’ stores against would be thieves.

Steve Whittle the spokesperson at Displaysense commented on this worrying trend by saying, “The demand for security related items has really shot through the roof, with a large proportion of these products being purchased by retailers who had previously never had to worry about protecting their wares. We are looking to source further security products based on the types of customer enquiries we have had, but the worrying thing is that a lot of people are looking to go far beyond the solutions we currently supply”.

Steve went on further to say, “We have even seen an increase in demand for our range of sign holders and snap frames f r o m the likes of supermarkets, who have had an equally tough time f r o m shop lifters as of late with increasing petty theft, and are presumably having to warn customers about their policies on theft”.

Not only have retailers had to contend with the obvious drop in sales associated with a recession, but are now having to invest extra into security, reducing their profit margins even more – a worry for any store manager and company director during these critical times.

It is hoped that with these extra security measures in place, the threat of shop lifting could decrease dramatically and allow retailers to concentrate more on stock shifting rather than shop lifting.

Displaysense Helps Retailers In Their Fight Against Swine Flu

Displaysense has announced that, with the number of swine flu cases continuing to rise across the UK, retailers and manufacturers are now going to extreme lengths to prevent the spread of the highly contagious illness throughout their customers and staff.

Displaysense

Demand for swine flu protection equipment has gone through the roof over the past few weeks, with Displaysense, a Hertfordshire based shop fittings provider, reporting that sales of their face masks and antibacterial hand wash have more than trebled and stock of the items is having to be ordered daily to keep up with demand. Not only has the retail display company seen a dramatic increase in sales of their face masks, but the range of searches on the company’s website for swine flu preventive products has gone up ten-fold, overtaking the more popular searches for products such as business card holders.

Steve Whittle, marketing manager at Displaysense, commented on the findings by saying, “We have had a big increase in demand for a lot of our products, from small clothing manufacturers purchasing a large quantity of masks to protect their work force, to retail stores purchasing antibacterial wipes and disinfectant hand gel to encourage customer and staff usage as well as keeping work surfaces sterile.”

Not only has the sale of face masks rocketed, but the sale of storage devices related to the virus has also been on the up, with products such as medical display cases and leaflet holders seeing an equally as large increase in sales.

“With the economy as it is, the fear of what swine flu can do to a struggling high street workforce and the potential reduction of footfalls of consumers, has many retailers reeling,” continued Steve Whittle. “We are just glad that we can supply such products to help these businesses combat this potential threat.”

The government are tackling the outbreak head on by distributing a leaflet to homes across the country this May, informing people of the symptoms and actions to take to prevent contracting and passing on the illness. Displaysense are also playing their part, by creating a dedicated page on their site that not only provides information on swine flu related products, but also provides links through to the government’s advice website and a health protection agency website.

Displaysense Has Joined The Many Number Of Companies That Are Having To Find Ways Of Being More Efficient And Save Money In The Current Economic Climate By Not Only Investing In A Waste Disposal System But Also Aiming To Make Money From Their Waste

Displaysense, the Hertfordshire-based retail company, has joined the many number of companies that are having to find ways of being more efficient and save money in the current economic climate by not only investing in a waste disposal system but also aiming to make money from their waste.

Displaysense, the UK’s leading supplier of display cabinets and other shop fittings, have recently invested in a new waste compactor and waste recycling service which not only reduces the amount of cardboard and plastics heading to landfill, but also helps reduce the number of trips regular waste disposal lorries have to make to the company’s warehouse.

The company, who originally used a 12cy skipping service, now uses its new compactor, reducing company costs by nearly 70% and saving hundreds of pounds. The compactor not only helps to cut down costs, but the amount of bulk waste has also been reduced down to two small pale loads of cardboard and plastic per week, which is a great help when disposing of some of the companies used mannequin boxes.

Not only is the company saving money but there are certain companies in the UK that buy compacted waste and Displaysense are now working with one such company.

Stuart Parnis, the warehouse manager at Displaysense commented on the success of the new compactor by saying, “We don’t make a lot from selling our waste but it helps to pay off the cost of the waste compactor. I feel a little like the Wombles, as we are making good use of what others regard as rubbish.”

Stuart added: “Since we introduced the new compactor in March, we have already noticed how efficient it is making certain processes within the warehouse, by reducing the time spent having to deal with collections.”

Displaysense, who now only require a small bin outside their warehouse doors for unrecyclable waste, are keen to see how many more savings they can make with further green technologies to help recycle some of their other items such as the plastics from returned clothes rails.

With a new website introduced in March of this year and 20,000 more products added to its range, it has already been a big year for change at Displaysense and it seems that there are even more ideas coming in the pipeline that won’t go to waste.

Displaysense set to introduce more than 767 shelving products made up from only 27 component items to help budget squeezed companies looking for greater value for money from their purchases

Displaysense to introduce innovative new shelving ideas for cash strapped businesses. During these tricky economic times it is becoming increasingly difficult for businesses to justify purchasing bespoke shop fittings in order to display their products, advertise their services and promote their brand. With this in mind, Displaysense has a simple solution that is not only budget and user friendly, but also more diverse than a Lego set.

With an artillery of 27 components, Displaysense – the UKs leading supplier of shop fittings and wire chrome shelving units -has plans to reveal a total of 767 combinations of retail shelving solutions. This extensive range of shelving will allow customer to adapt and craft unique displays to suit any business environment from caterers to offices and even for the home.

Unlike a number of competitor suppliers of wire chrome components, Displaysense is set to be the first to provide customers with a unique glimpse at the products’ potential usage and combinations. Already boasting an existing range of more than 60 units, Displaysense plan to expand that number further thanks to recent component parts that include clothing rails and sloping brochure holders that open the door for more industries to take advantage of the products’ potential.

Steve Whittle, marketing manager at Displaysense, commented, “We are constantly trying to diversify our product range or create new solutions at Displaysense. You could say it’s in the blood, as we often extend our product range simply by imagining who the end user could be. Our ballot boxes are a perfect example of this as we originally had a limited number of floor standing units. So we designed our own solution by adding two products together and they have gone down a storm with our customers”.

Steve continued, “Our designs enable businesses to buy shelving solutions that can grow and adapt to their business needs, providing them far greater value for money than other shelving and display options out there.”

The company doesn’t plan to stop there with its products either, as Steve forecasts that 2009 is set to be a fantastic year for the business, as more innovative display solutions are introduced to aid the struggling retail sector.

New Research From Displaysense Suggests That Using Certain Colours Could Boost Retail Store Performance And Increase Product Appeal This Christmas Period

Following research from the University of Rochester that indicated women wearing red are more appealing to men, further research undertaken by Displaysense suggests that stores can influence the shopping patterns of their customers simply by re-colouring their shop fittings.

A simple colour test undertaken by the retail display company indicated that just under 70% of the participants were more drawn to a particular colour across a vast range of everyday items.

Understanding consumer buying patterns is particularly important for businesses trying to boost sales this Christmas period as the looming recession and increasing unemployment has placed fear in the minds of the general consumer who are now looking to save rather than spend.

The research undertaken by Displaysense highlights some interesting consumer behaviour between certain colours and potential spending patterns. For example 20% of participants suggested that the use of brighter colours distracted their attention away from products in a shop display. In contrast, when red is used on shop displays and fittings, men are more drawn to the products.

This type of research is of great interest to retailers such as jewelers, who could increase the chances of attracting the attention of men who are shopping for Christmas presents for their wife, girlfriend or partner by using red appropriately in their stores, such as red counter top display cases or shelving.

Although the study of colours on the human psyche is not new, Displaysense are looking to capitalise on this research by sourcing a line of red products including mannequins anddisplay cabinets that would fit in well as we head towards the peak Christmas period.

Red, which is said to be the most emotionally intense of all the colours has been known to cause various changes within our bodies, including a faster heart beat, deeper breathing and a release of endorphins. Displaysense believe this physical reaction by men to red will lead to customers browsing for longer and spending more on products placed upon these vibrant shop fittings.

Displaysense hope that retailers will be seeing red for the right reasons this festive period, and, in terms of their bank balance, hope for a Black Christmas.

Displaysense research included the opinions of 500 customers at the start of September to the end of October 2008 asking a series of questions, which forms the source for the various facts included in this press release.

Displaysense Reports The High Street Is Struggling As Increased Demand By Stores For 90 Per Cent Off Sales Banners Leads To Stocks Running Out In Late October

As the recession strikes and tightens its grips on British high streets, Displaysense report a worrying time ahead for retailers, with shops going to extreme lengths to encourage customers to part with their cash. The result of some stores taking up to 90% off of their prices has lead to stocks of certain sales banners running out.

The move towards massive sales which reveals the desperation of some high street stores, comes at a time when spending is usually on the increase as a result of consumers flocking to the streets for Christmas related gift ideas. Displaysense, a supplier of sale banners and display stands, is one such company that has been overwhelmed with orders for their sale product range, highlighting that the panic surrounding this Christmas sales period is leading retailers into unchartered territory.

Displaysense has been selling sale related banners and signs as well as other retail supportive products such as display cabinets for some years now, but has suddenly noticed a sharp increase in the demand for their 70%, 80% and 90% off sale banners, so much so that they sold out in October. Good news for Displaysense that they are meeting their audiences needs for products but worrying for the wider economy.

The retail display company is attempting to restock the items as soon as possible but feel that the demand for these sale banners will continue into the New Year alongside the overwhelming amount of orders received for their new range of sale related products.

Steve Whittle the marketing manager of Displaysense commented on this startling high street move by saying, “It’s a worrying trend for the economy in this run up to Christmas and the high street stores are really taking a big gamble”. He continued,”Normally this is the time of year for stores to hold their nerve on their pricing but it looks as if some have shown their cards early and we’ve noticed a great deal of shops with literature holders displaying major discounts”.

Not only are some of the stores taking up to 90% off their prices to encourage Christmas sales, but some are already beginning to revamp their look for 2009 as Displaysense highlight an increase in sales of their shop fittings such as their range of display cases. With the economy not set to recover for some time, a store with a unique look just might have what it takes to prosper in the forthcoming year.

With a tough 2009 predicted, Displaysense is preparing for the tough times ahead for retailers and has already tripled the stock of their ‘buy one get one free’ sale signs but hope they don’t sell any ‘closing down’ signs .

Displaysense Has Reported That A Drunken Reveller At A Corporate Farewell Party In Dorset Sparked Panic After Getting Stuck In A Cabinet And Falling Asleep For Three Hours

Displaysense, the UK’s leading supplier of display equipment, including leaflet dispensers and business card holders, has reported that the drunken antics of an employee working for a company in Dorset resulted in an unusual rescue missions by fellow employees.

Two weeks before the incident, a display cabinet was purchased from Displaysense by the company in Dorset as a method of displaying a number of awards and accolades that the company had recently received. The cabinet, one of many display cases owned by the company, was placed in the cafeteria where members of staff could freely access the awards that were put on display.

During a phone call to Displaysense two weeks later, it was discovered that an unusual incident had occurred at a staff farewell party, resulting in the cabinet being damaged beyond repair and the company left looking for a replacement.

In an effort to startle and surprise the guests of honour at the party, an overly drunk member of staff emptied out the contents of the display cabinet and squeezed himself inside without first considering the internal dimensions of the cabinet. With his coat covering his body, the employee, who was said to be “on the large side”, had planned to jump out after ten minutes. However, this humorous event never materialised.

Three hours passed and the drunken employee, still covered by his coat, awoke to find the bright lights and background music had turned to darkness and silence and that he was now all alone. After entering the cabinet in an awkward manner, he soon realised that he could not actually get out. He managed to reach into his back pocket however, and retrieve his mobile. He rang one of his work colleagues, who was continuing the party festivities in a nearby pub, and pleaded with him for assistance.

Steve Whittle, marketing manager at Displaysense commented: “The gentleman who rang us to order a replacement cabinet told us that they had to go back to the closed office and break apart the cabinet in order to free the employee. We’ve had customers use our products in some unique ways before, but I can’t recall when they’ve been used as a hiding place.”

After the company had finished the order, the sales team at Displaysense were left to question if they should ask their shop display manufacturer whether they should consider changing their design to include easy release mechanisms for the inside of their display cabinets.

Displaysense discover illegal stowaway, as a standard product return ends in a hair raising experience

Displaysense the UK’s leading supplier of retail displays usually does not have to worry about illegal stowaways, but got quite a shock at the beginning of August as one of their products was inadvertently returned with an unexpected traveller on board.

The company which sells a wide range of retail display products from literature holders to display cases deal with returns on a daily basis and it was business as usual until one customer returned more than just their undesired product.

The customer, a clothes shop owner who lives in Lille, France, returned a mannequin on a next day courier service after purchasing the wrong gender of display and unbeknown to him, accidentally returned his pet cat as well.

It is believed that the cat must have been quite taken by the packaging used for the mannequin, climbed inside the box and fell asleep. The owner didn’t realise this when he re-sealed the box and the cat then endured a 200 mile journey and arrived at theDisplaysense head office destination in Hertfordshire, England.

Upon opening the box, the warehouse staff got quite a shock as a cat burst out of the box and hid behind some of the companies flat pack glass display cabinets.

Luckily the cat was eventually coaxed out and inspected for any injuries. Stuart Parnis the Warehouse manager at Displaysense described the young cat as being a little shaken by the experience but seemed to be enjoying all the attention and products around the warehouse, with lots of boxes and display cabinets to climb in and investigate. It is believed that the cat simply climbed inside the mannequin box as its owner repackaged the unwanted retail display.

A blue collar was found around the cats neck and it turns out she was affectionately named “etoile” which is the French for “Star”, accompanied by a return address clearly written on her collar. After Star had calmed down and eaten some food, the customer was contacted and made arrangements for the cat to be collected.

Stuart Parnis commented “It is true what they say, cats really must have 9 lives, but at least Displaysense were around to give its next life the purrrr-fect start.”
