DT Research teams with Wowcard to deploy digital signage at Philippine restaurants

HONG KONG — DT Research Inc., a developer of information appliances for vertical markets, and WOWCARD Inc., a service provider to restaurants, tourist attractions, casinos, hotels and medical institutions in the Philippines, announced that Jollibee and Chowking, two of the most popular fast-food chains in the Philippines, have deployed the WebDT Signage System at their Subic Bay Freeport locations.
Commissioned by the Subic Bay Tourism Department, the digital signs primarily serve as key information terminals for local and international tourists and business travelers, according to a news release. Using the WebDT Signage System, the restaurants are now able to remotely manage content on multiple signs offering up-to-the minute local tourism information and advertising.

Subic Bay Freeport is a tourist and business destination located about 70 miles north of Manila, the Philippines’ capital. Subic Bay boasts numerous vacation spots that include casinos, resorts, scuba diving centers and museums as well as a number of hotels and restaurants. Both Jollibee and Chowking use the WebDT Signage System to broadcast local travel information to visitors, including highlights and details on scenic spots, weather and news, forthcoming international and local affairs, conventions and concerts. When not used as tourist and business information terminals, the signs showcase Jollibee and Chowking’s own food and product promotions or serve as an advertising medium for national and international businesses.
The digital signage network installations at Jollibee and Chowking provide the restaurants and Subic Bay’s local tourism industry with an interactive and up-to-the minute system to communicate to visitors. The WebDT Signage System’s content management software provides the ability to dynamically update content on multiple signs from any remote location, ensuring that guests receive offers and travel information in real-time.
“Subic Bay Freeport is a premier travel destination in the Philippines, attracting over 1.8 million local and foreign tourists and business visitors every year,” said Armand C. Arreza, administrator and chief executive of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority. “The WebDT Signage System enables us to quickly communicate to local and international tourists and showcase some of the finest destinations around the area. Also, with local establishments having different events and specials on a daily basis, the signage system provides them with a way to promote their products and services to increase sales.”
“The WebDT Signage System allows the SBMA Tourism Department and WOWCARD Inc. to efficiently manage the content that is published on each digital sign,” said Dr. Daw Tsai, president of DT Research. “This offers local tourism officials and advertisers the flexibility to promote different destinations or products and services on a daily, or even hourly, basis. The WebDT Content Manager and Remote Device Manager provide businesses and advertisers with a powerful tool to effectively reach targeted audiences.”
