By coupling an array of fan engagement elements with vibrant video technology within its LA Interactive powered by Toshiba digital signage installation at STAPLES CenterToshiba America Business Solutions was awarded the 2015 ICX Association Excellence Award in the entertainment category.

Located off the main concourse of the arena, LA Interactive features a 6- by 13-foot LED video wall, 8- by 5-foot Toshiba Ultra HD video wall, three 65-inch Toshiba Ultra HD displays and two 46-inch Toshiba Virtuoso interactive touch displays where fans can access Los Angeles Kings and Los Angeles Clippers team information such as photos, stats and video highlights. The fan engagement zone also features a 60-inch Toshiba “Touch & Get” interactive kiosk allowing for high-speed transfers of exclusive Kings and STAPLES Center content.

“LA Interactive provides an excellent customer experience while promoting the various events at STAPLES Center and appears to be very intuitive and easy for customers of any age group to use,” said Scott Slucher, executive director at ICX Association. “LAI is a unique fan engagement venue that is sure to promote brand loyalty and excitement.”

“STAPLES Center and AEG pride themselves on being an industry leader in technology and providing the best experience for our fans,” said STAPLES Center President, Lee Zeidman.  “Partnering with an innovative and forward thinking company like Toshiba and creating LA Interactive on our main concourse has given our guests the opportunity to connect and engage with exclusive content.”

“When we first began collaborating with AEG’s marketing representatives, our team immediately understood their desire to demonstrably enhance the fan experience while building brand loyalty,” said Toshiba America Business Solutions Chief Marketing Executive, Bill Melo.  “From ideation and continuing throughout the development process, we both envisioned creating a first-of-its kind interactive environment for all STAPLES Center patrons to enjoy. We are extremely proud of the end result and this acknowledgement from ICX is a wonderful testament to the work we’ve done.”

Toshiba began planning for the STAPLES Center project in July, 2014. The building of LA Interactive commenced upon AEG publicly announcing its partnership with Toshiba. In the ensuing two months, Toshiba – working collectively with STAPLES Center and its vendor partners – completed its unique fan zone. An official ribbon-cutting event signaling the opening of LA Interactive took place November 8, 2014, a day after the project was complete.

Toshiba Honors Largest International Distributor, Ranko S.A

By helping successfully expand Toshiba America Business Solutions’ sales and brand recognition in Argentina throughout the last two decades, the company honors its largest international distributor, Ranko S.A. Toshiba’s Senior Vice President of Sales Americas, Larry White and Toshiba International Sales Director, Adrian Fuentes-Sanabria delivered the award to Ranko’s President and Chief executive officer, Rodolfo Paskvan during the office equipment distributor’s national meeting in Buenos Aires, Argentina on May 19th.

Upon partnering with Ranko in 1994, sales of Toshiba’s portfolio of industry-recognized e-STUDIOTM multifunction products (MFPs) and network document solutions have risen substantially in Argentina. Though the South American country’s economy has undergone challenges during this timeframe, Ranko has experienced steady success. Since fiscal year (FY) 1994, Ranko’s sales of Toshiba products and services have increased by more than 130 percent. When comparing the distributor’s revenue during the last five fiscal years (from 2010 to 2014), Ranko’s overall revenue has spiked by nearly 60 percent to $20 (U.S.) million in annual revenue in 2014.

“We are very fortunate and thankful for our 20-year partnership with Ranko,” White said. “Having relatively little brand recognition within Argentina at the beginning of our relationship, Rodolfo and his entire team have almost single-handedly expanded our company’s awareness and sales footprint exponentially in his country.”

“When we began the business, our primary objective was finding a preeminent technology partner capable of equipping our customers with a streamlined, best-in-class print fleet,” Paskvan said. “When the opportunity with Toshiba presented itself, we knew we had found a partner and that relationship has flourished ever since that moment.”

With 120 dealers throughout Argentina, Ranko currently services 500 major accounts including many of the preeminent banking, energy and technology companies in the country.
