Adcock Ingram is a leading South African pharmaceutical manufacturer, listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

The Company manufactures, markets and distributes a wide range of healthcare products. The company is a leading supplier to both the private and public sectors of the market.

Expansion in to emerging markets has given the company a presence in sub-Saharan Africa and India. This meant that Adcock Ingram now has a more widely dispensed staff.

The Executive committee found it hard and tedious to disseminate all information to employees via email and memo’s that they hardly read, the easiest way and least intrusive was to establish a company wide digital signage system to pass information from the headquarters to the branches in other countries at the click of a button.

Avicast Limited implemented its regional digital signage, configuration of digital signage software and installation of the screens.

Avicast limited also developed local advertising content for 8 English speaking countries that is shown on the screens as visitors visit the branches.
