Company officials said that terminals will be installed at more than 1,300 Banorte Ixe branches plus corporate buildings.
"Research shows that digital signage in banks influences customer purchase behavior, driving demand for new services such as online bill paying, direct deposit, and new mortgages or refinancing," said Nick Marzella, vice president of Latin America sales at Hughes. "We are honored that SSL Digital has expanded its HX System in order to deliver this critical content to its most prestigious banking customer in Mexico.
