S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • May 2017 • 15 Stratacache Acquires LIFT Network Dayton, Ohio-based Stratacache, a digital signage and content distribution solutions provider, announces the acquisition of the LIFT Network from San Jose, California-based Verifone. According to Stratacache, LIFT is an interactive upsell platform located in convenience stores nationwide. Its technology is used at the point of sale. Using basket information and shopper behavior, a touchscreen at the checkout displays relevant offers based on real-time transaction data, allowing the cashiers to offer "plus one" sales to the customer. The touchscreen displays offers relevant to that customer based on real-time transaction data. This, according to the company, has resulted in increased sales of 9 percent to 65 percent. LIFT has 3,500-plus screens that deliver 64 million impressions at the country's leading convenience store retailers. LIFT will become a part of PRN, Stratacache's flagship retail media company. Sun Chemical Acquires RJA Dispersions Parsippany, New Jersey-based Sun Chemical, a manufacturer of printing inks, coatings and pigments, announces the acquisition of Hudson, Wisconsin-based RJA Dispersions LLC, a maker of pig- ment and particle dispersions for a variety of digital ink types. RJA Dispersions' products are primarily used for UV-cure, eco-solvent and aqueous inkjet inks.

As the director of digital, O'Loughlin will lead the RJA Dispersions inte- gration and be responsible for the global growth of the combined product portfolio of this business unit.
