Speaking about his recent appointment, Albert Baranera said: “I am joining Nsign.tv at a really exciting moment. On one hand, the market is seeing a boom in the digitization of physical spaces, where brands and businesses are looking for a better connection and interaction with their audiences (customers, visitors, employees, clients). And, on the other, our digital signage platform is at an optimum moment with the right product, team and the capability and strength to expand nationally and internationally.”
On his new role in the company, Baranera explained: “As managing director of Nsign.tv I will be focusing my energies on organizing the company resources to ensure our expansion and ongoing investment in innovation. On the other hand, I will be looking to set in place the sales channels necessary for our technology to reach potential end users, offering a product that creates a positive impact thanks to its interoperability with multiple sources of information, its scalability in implementation (able to evolve from publishing contents to customizing them for specific audiences), obtaining all kinds of metrics to evaluate its impact and, above all else, offering the platform with the best user experience in the market.”
Toni Viñals, CEO of Nsign.tv added: “We are delighted to welcome Albert on board. His professional track record is grounded in three areas which are absolutely key for us, namely technology, internationality and creating channels.

The new managing director concluded, “we are really excited about exhibiting at ISE again.
