Avida embraces change and the exciting opportunities it presents for driving innovation.

Since 2010

Avida has established itself as a leading Canadian provider of turnkey digital signage solutions for brick-and-mortar retailers.

As the retail industry has evolved, so too has Avida. Expanding our strategic service offerings to encompass the entire in-store experience has enabled us to better serve our clients in meeting the challenges faced by physical retail in the age of digital disruption.

We embrace change and the exciting opportunities it presents for driving innovation.

How might you provide customers with seamless multi-channel shopping experiences that touch the senses, the mind, and the heart?

Avida helps retailers establish the vision for elevated shopping experiences.

Understanding through exploration

We believe that shifting consumer behavior patterns and expectations has created new opportunities for retailers to re-think their in-store experiences.

Avida’s human-centred strategic planning process and multi-sensory experience design solutions are designed to help your company develop its own holistic vision for future retail environments. By bridging the physical and the digital, we aim to help retailers rediscover the opportunities for customer engagement inherent to having physical shoppers in a physical store.

Where others aim to be faster and louder, we take a step back, we pause, we take the time to think through experiences holistically and from multiple perspectives, then we execute for maximum and lasting impact.
