Samsung Canada and Tim Hortons continue digital drive-thru transformation with plans to complete 2,600 outdoor displays across Canada by the end of 2021
Outdoor signage solution from Samsung Canada brings innovative technology to the drive-thru with high performance, endurance and visibility
Samsung Electronics Canada and Tim Hortons are modernizing the guest experience with the installation of Samsung’s outdoor digital signage technology at Tim Hortons drive-thru locations across Canada in 2021.
With installations already completed at roughly 1,300 Tim Hortons drive-thru locations as of 2020, this partnership marks Samsung Canada’s largest outdoor digital signage deployment yet, with plans for a total of approximately 2,600 Tim Hortons drive-thru locations modernized with new outdoor digital signage technology by the end of the year.
“Increased digital signage adoption at drive-thru areas reflects a commitment among today’s quick-service restaurants to provide an improved customer experience,” said Mary Peterson, Vice President, IT & Enterprise Solutions, Samsung Electronics Canada. “We’re proud to partner with Tim Hortons to provide innovative outdoor digital signage at even more of its drive-thru locations this year, maximizing customer engagement through product durability, flexibility and 24/7 performance.”
A fully integrated, self-contained outdoor display, Samsung’s OH Series features an IP56 certification for use in heat, cold, rain, snow and dust – ideal for a variety of weather conditions throughout the year in Canada. Featuring an ultra-slim depth of 85mm with an embedded power box, the high brightness display is also optimized for visibility in bright ambient light, even viewable to those wearing polarized sunglasses. The product is fully equipped for outdoor placements and features an innovative cooling system, so there’s no need for a supplemental heating or air conditioning unit.
Additionally, Samsung’s digital signage technology provides advanced display protection through 5 mm (0.19 in.) tempered Magic Glass, which is certified durable through IK10-certification (a European-strength test) and demonstrates a robust level of strength that can endure external impacts.
“The Tim Hortons drive-thru network is the largest in the country and offers Canadians a contactless, quick way to grab their favourite coffee and food on the go. Samsung’s technology is playing an important part in our vision to modernize the guest experience and we’re excited to be installing outdoor digital menu boards in our drive-thru restaurants,” said Chris Main, Vice President of Restaurant Technology for Tim Hortons.
Technology enclosures specialist, Melitron Corporation (www.melitron.com), designed and manufactured the outdoor digital signage and menu boards, including integration of Samsung’s display technology, which are further advancing the customer experience at Tim Hortons drive-thrus across Canada.
