Dubai, UAE, November 28, 2007
MxN Middle East announced that it has just completed the supply of self service Kiosks to General Motors Middle East that were launched at the 9th Middle East International Motorshow held in Dubai. The kiosks featured a survey that once completed would provide the customer with an opportunity to win a free car of their choice.
‘In today's Digital world, solutions like the one we have recently supplied to GM will increasingly become the norm. We provided them with a full turn key solution including the hardware, content and technical support.’ said Raad Raad, Managing Director of MxN.
The GM Kiosks were the first of their kind at the Motorshow in Dubai . Customers were asked to complete a short survey and in exchange they would get a voucher for $500 for a gas card or dealership services, with the purchase of a GM vehicle if made before December 31st, 2007. They were also entered into a draw to win the GM vehicle of their choice.
‘We are really pleased with being the first to rollout this kind of technology at the Motorshow. This step is in line with our constant quest for innovation and use of the latest technology ’ said Shereen Harris, CRM Manager for General Motors Middle East.
MxN is one of the only companies in the region to be able to provide a full turn key solution for its customers. The delivery of the GM kiosks is just another example of MxN’s commitment to maintain this dominant leadership position in the area of Digital Media. ‘In choosing MxN one of the determining factors was their ability to deliver on all aspects of this project from hardware and technology to content, including round-the-clock support to ensure smooth implementation.’ continued Shereen.
The kiosk program will now move on to the Kuwait International Automobile Exhibition to be held at the Kuwait International Fair Grounds in Mishref, Kuwait from November 28th to December 4th 2007.

MXN Middle East FZ-LLC will be featuring its industry leading and revolutionary Digital Signage, Digital Communication and Digital Media Solutions during the Media and Marketing Show from November 11th to 13th at the Dubai International Exhibit and Convention Centre in the UAE.
‘I made a personal commitment from the first Media and Marketing show that we would consistently participate at this event. In fact, we are the only company in our field returning to the Media & Marketing show’ says Raad Raad, Managing Director.
‘MxN representatives will be available to discuss and highlight our abilities and strengths in the areas of content creation, content management, project management and integration. Our competitors concentrate on only one aspect of the business model and rarely provide the client with a fully integrated solution. It has become clear over the last few years that our clients are looking for a full solution and not just one aspect. We believe we are the only company in the region that is capable of delivering a full solution.’ continued Raad.
MxN Middle East is a consistent contributor to the Media and Marketing Show. MxN will be showcasing its integrated Kiosk solutions, its AV broadcasting solutions (which have been uniquely developed for the digital signage industry) as well as a fully integrated Queue Management Solution. ‘The star of this event will be the only fully integrated Queue Management System and Digital Signage solution being sold in the region’ says Aref Chamli, Sales and Marketing Manager. ‘We will be highlighting, what I believe, is the best and most complete digital signage solution available in the Middle East today’ continued Chamli.
