Learn How Shikatani Lacroix Enhanced the Boston Pizza Customer Experience with Digital Signage

Looking to reaffirm its position as the ultimate sports entertainment restaurant destination, Boston Pizza partnered with Shikatani Lacroix to modernize its design and enhance the experience of Boston Pizza patrons.

Located in Toronto’s downtown core, the new flagship location is located at Front and John street, in close proximity to major sporting venues, the Rogers Centre and Air Canada Centre.

Shikatani Lacroix modernizes Boston Pizza design and customer experience with digital signage.

As part of the new design, digital signage was included throughout the restaurant to enhance the customer experience and improve communication within the venue.

As part of the digital display, screens powered by the Audience content management platform developed by Capital Networks provide dynamic, RSS-driven sports information including team stats, player stats, news, schedules, scores and fantasy information alongside Boston Pizza branding and promotional content. Pulled from a variety of news sources, content for the NBA, NHL, MLS, MLB and NFL is automatically uploaded and displayed in real time.

RSS feeds drive sports information to digital signage displays in real time.

With the new design, Boston Pizza has reinforced its reputation as the ultimate sports entertainment destination, where patrons celebrate both their city and their teams immersed in a modernized restaurant bar experience.
