Ronald McDonald House Charity

Ronald McDonald House Charity

As part of Visual Art’s brand promise, we put people first. And with carefully selected charity initiatives and partnerships we believe that we can contribute to making the world a better place for us all and specifically for the children.

Having a child in hospital is every family’s worst nightmare. By engaging us closely with Ronald McDonald House Charity in Sweden, we are proud to change the lives of families with sick children while in hospital care and though treatments.

Ronald McDonald House charity is a non-profit charity organization that helps keep families together, close to their children while in hospital. Their vision is that all seriously sick children can live together in a homely and safe environment, close to the hospital with their families close to them.

The mission is to create and support initiatives that have a positive impact on the well-being of sick children, their families and loved ones.

When severe illness turns our life upside down, we often realizes that what matters most is to be together with the ones we love. And just like families are stronger together, so are we. Our Houses and organisations depend on friends that want to help us make a difference, and very often that help is not some rocket science solution, says Agnieszka Eriksson Organizational Lead at Ronald McDonald House in Huddinge.

– We are proud to help out in any way we can. The beds in the house were very well used and if we can contribute to making the family’s night sleep a little better, we will, says Stefan Noble, founder of Visual Art.

Our founder Stefan Noble has been a proud and engaged board member since 2015 and when the house in Stockholm started to go through a renovation in 2020, we got the possibility to donate new beds to the rooms.

– Most of the time it is the simple stuff that best helps our families cope with the hardships – like getting to sleep in a comfortable bed. We are so grateful for our long and loving friendship with the people at Visual Art, for their personal and corporate engagement in our mission. It truly helps us make a difference, says Agnieszka Eriksson.

RonaldMcDonald

Every year, 3,600 families live in the houses and since the start in 1993, there have been a total of 200,000 family members.

Visual Art digitizes the store and customer experience at Blomsterlandet

Blomsterlandet strive to be in the forefront for a digitized store and customer experience in their 63 stores in Sweden. The technology, which is delivered by Visual Art, will increase customer experience and customer value but is also a tool to increase sales in the stores. In total, this involves an installation of over 800 digital communication channels.

After a short pilot project of six weeks in four stores, starting in October 2020, Blomsterlandet has now decided to roll out a new concept with digital communication channels in stores across the country. Visual Art, which is also behind the concept, will now deliver all the technology, design and support around the project.

– This has been a bit of a pilot for us as well, as this is the first time the concept has been tested in this type of store environment that Blomsterlandet offers its customers. It is great to see that it has landed so well and not least so quickly with directly measurable effects for customer experience and customer flow in the stores, says Pontus Meijer, Chief Revenue Officer at Visual Art.

The basis of the concept is to first analyze the customer flow and then use digital communication channels, approximately 13 screens per store, to inform, entertain and steer the flow better. It gives customers direct added value and Blomsterlandet an even better opportunity to better instantly demonstrate their expertise in their on-site market. The digital communication channels have also been very effective in controlling customer flow in store, for example by increasing the traffic to the outdoor market during low-season periods.

 

– We noticed early on in the pilot that the customer experience was significantly higher and that this type of digital presence is also appreciated. Through this installation, we end up at the absolute forefront of digital concepts in the store environment, which we believe will benefit both customers and the business in general for many years to come, says Stephan Andersson, Chief Marketing Officer at Blomsterlandet.

 

In total, the partnership involves over 800 digital communication channels as well as content production and support from Visual Art for five years. The roll-out will take place during 2021–2022 and covers Blomsterlandet’s 63 stores around Sweden.
