BlueStar, a leading global distributor of Digital Signage, ADC, Mobility, Point-of-Sale, RFID, and ID & Security technology solutions, is now including a leading Flash content creation and motion graphics tool, Flypaper, in its distribution channel. This addition means BlueStar resellers can find a complete signage platform from one resource. The Flypaper Flash content creation platform solves the content problem for digital signage networks by giving users a platform to create, edit and share high quality Flash content in real time, with no special design skills necessary.
“We’re excited about the channel partnership with Flypaper Studio because this software solution fills the void with many of our networking and POS dealers about how to easily create and manage dynamic digital content,” says Gary Childress, digital signage director for BlueStar. It also brings a wow factor to simple screen promotions and presentations. Flypaper is the type of company that fits into our value-added distribution model, with bundled solutions, backed up with ongoing education and support services.”
BlueStar chose Flypaper as a complementary solution to its other technology solutions, which help companies implement impactful digital signage networks.
"Most digital signage distributors don’t offer a robust content creation tool as part of their packages; they just offer hardware,” says Don Pierson, president of Flypaper. “BlueStar acknowledges that this tool needs to be part of the total solution. Top-notch screens and fast networks are still vital, but BlueStar understands that value-added resellers are looking to present a full range of solutions to their customers therefore, content creation ability is a crucial component piece of the puzzle.”
BlueStar will distribute Flypaper as a standalone solution, in addition to bundling it with other digital signage products. Information on these packages can be found at bluestarinc.com.
The Flypaper Flash Content Creation Platform is a licensed environment where companies can create and share vast amounts of digital signage content and motion graphics. Users benefit from hundreds of already available templates and components, or can create their own quickly and easily, with no prior development experience.
