Vantage LED Rewards Dealer Partner With A New LED Display For Outstanding Performance

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 24, 2013

Affiliated Resources, Inc. (ARI), known as “The Moving Message Sign Company”, opened their doors in 1982 and has been selling LED signs for over 30 years making them the oldest LED sign company in the U.S.. They have seen many sign companies come and go in the LED sign industry, and they have dealt with many LED sign manufacturers as well. Several years ago, they discovered Vantage LED and have been astounded with the innovative products and real human support. Because of their enthusiasm, and more importantly, their boost in sales and overall performance, Affiliated Resources was rewarded with a new LED sign from Vantage LED to replace an old Optec Display on their main identification sign.

Bruce Murray, Regional Sales for Vantage LED, stated, “I’ve worked closely with Affiliated Resources for some time and have always found them to be very professional and knowledgeable about LED displays, but more importantly, very concerned that their customers receive the best product and training available. Their reputation in the industry speaks for itself.”

Jack Gordon of Affiliated Resources, Inc. exclaimed, “Vantage LED is great. I have been in this business almost ten years. Chris Ma [CEO & Founder] and his team make a quality product and back it up with outstanding support. Bruce, our sales rep, is a pro’s pro and Deisy is always ready to jump in with programming assistance.”

Affiliated Resources has done projects for U.S. Steel, McDonald’s, Goodyear, AT&T, Nabisco, GM, Ford, Kraft Foods, Boise Cascade, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army, Eastman Kodak and many thousands of small independent businesses. They believe the best reward a company can receive is customer satisfaction, and they work diligently to make sure a customer is happy with their LED sign investment.

Stephen Stillman, Owner, explained, “Most people have never purchased these products before and don’t even know what questions to ask. Our expert customer service staff will answer all of their questions and help to guide them through the process of selecting the right LED sign for their business.”

Mr. Stillman continued, “In 1982, when we first started in this business, nobody knew what to call them: Moving Message Signs, LED Signs, Scrolling Signs, Electronic Signs, Message Centers, Reader Boards, Moving Signs, Computerized Signs, Programmable Displays, etc. We decided to call them just what they are: MOVING MESSAGE SIGNS. Since then, many companies have come into the industry and most of them are long gone. We are still here. We like to think it is because of the way we treat our customers.”

About Affiliated Resources, Inc.:

Located in Chicago, IL, Affiliated Resources, Inc. started in 1982 and have established themselves as the leading providers of LED Signs in their arena. They continue to push the boundaries of technology developing exciting and innovative products for the global market. They have a culture of innovation where their employees make a difference.

JBG and TransitScreen Partner on Real-Time Transportation Displays

Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 21, 2014

TransitScreen, a Washington, D.C.-based transportation technology firm, has signed its largest-ever real estate agreement with The JBG Companies, a fully integrated investment, management and development firm located in Chevy Chase, MD. The agreement will provide real-time transportation displays in JBG properties across the Washington Metropolitan region, making it possible for residents and office tenants to see live information on public transit conditions in their areas.

The large display screens will be mounted in building lobbies and will track current schedules and conditions for Metro, Metro bus, car2go service, as well as Capital Bikeshare. TransitScreen recently completed a successful six-month pilot with a live dashboard in JBG’s corporate headquarters.

“The TransitScreen service quickly became a tool for our staff,” said Rod Lawrence, a JBG partner. “We were able to judge things like whether Metro would get us to a mid-day meeting on time or if we should adjust an evening commute. Given our transit-oriented portfolio, this real-time information will prove invaluable to our residents and office workers. It is a great support in our work to create active and sustainable destinations, and we’re excited to add this reliable service.”

Last year, JBG created its own real-time transit displays at four residential buildings that operated with mixed results. The search for external solutions led them to TransitScreen.

To date, TransitScreen has worked primarily with city transit agencies, large employers and property management firms. This agreement represents the largest real estate project for TransitScreen and is an enormous validation for the growing company’s products and services.

“We are thrilled to work with JBG, the preeminent D.C.-area’s investor, owner and developer,” said TransitScreen cofounder Ryan Croft. “Given JBG’s commitment to transit-oriented developments and sustainability, we think it’s a natural fit. We will work together to improve access to sustainable transportation and promote walkable, bike-friendly, and transit-oriented communities.”

The JBG installation will be conducted in phases. The first phase will begin this fall and expects to have TransitScreen displays in dozens of residential and commercial properties by early next year. JBG’s portfolio includes 23.6 million square feet of office, residential, hotel and retail space.

About The JBG Companies

Headquartered in Chevy Chase, Md., The JBG Companies is a private real estate development firm that develops, owns and manages office, residential, hotel and retail properties. The company has more than $ 10 billion in assets under management and development in the Washington, DC area.
