Userful Corporation, a renowned provider of AV-over-IP solutions for enhanced video communication since 2015, announced that Sigma Alimentos, a popular global branded refrigerated food company, has deployed Userful video wall technology at its headquarters’ main control room. Sigma Alimentos is headquartered in Monterrey, Mexico, and maintains operations in the U.S., Mexico, Latin America, and Europe.
The company’s 2017 revenues totaled more than 3 billion and it deploys a fleet of more than 13,000 vehicles based at 208 distribution centers.

“Userful’s visual networking platform helps organizations manage their core operations, and help drive improved productivity and efficiency,” said John Marshall, CEO of Userful. “Sigma Alimentos’s deployment of Userful technology gives the company an important competitive advantage by ensuring a continuous distribution operation, thus maximizing freshness, reducing spoilage and out of stocks, and ensuring the company’s products reach the right retailer at the right time.”
Sigma Alimentos has built a 4x2 control room video wall at its headquarters that serves multiple functions:
- Monitor distribution routes and weather to track vehicles moving to and from their distribution centers
- Manage and monitor their surveillance cameras in all distribution centers
- Show web content applicable to monitor its fleet, remote desktops via VNC for operators to interact with the video wall, and security cameras via web
Video wall operators use tablets to control the video wall using Userful’s friendly interactivity features, including an interactive viewer and preset switcher.
Visual display solutions
“Userful is an innovator in visual display solutions and many companies have embraced Userful as a result of its power, flexibility, and features,” said Sergio duSolier, president of ThinTechnologies, a Mexican reseller of Userful solutions.
"Selling into the Mexican market can be a challenge, but the ability to deploy Userful for control room applications, as well as other applications such as digital signature and dashboards, makes Userful the product of choice in many situations. Our experience with Userful sales, marketing, and support teams have been very positive.”
