TORONTO, Aug. 8, 2019 /CNW/ - MiQ, Hivestack and Kinetic Canada have announced today their partnership in developing Canada's first fully-integrated digital-out-of-home (DOOH) buying and planning tool. The collaboration aims to create a more efficient and easier way of buying and measuring out-of-home (OOH) media all within one consolidated dashboard.
"Partnering with Hivestack and Kinetic Canada validates an emerging focus for MiQ on bringing our analytics capabilities to a wider set of marketing channels, such as DOOH" said Jason Furlano, VP Sales, MiQ Digital. "Our Marketing Intelligence solution will ultimately help advertisers improve the effectiveness of their OOH media spend."
"Our collaboration with MiQ and Kinetic Canada will have a seismic impact on the Canadian DOOH landscape," said Andreas Soupliotis, Founder & CEO, Hivestack. "Digital marketers will have the ability to connect with tailored audiences on DOOH screens that will drive measurable business outcomes at all stages of the purchase funnel -- from brand awareness right down to conversion."
"The digital transformation of OOH has evolved rapidly and will continue to do so in the coming years," said Kevin McDonald, Owner & CEO, Kinetic Canada. "This partnership and our collective investment in tools, technology, data and research gives our clients a definitive competitive advantage when buying DOOH."
Hivestack has created a custom DSP specifically for Kinetic underpinned by location intelligence from MiQ and their mobile data partners, which will allow Kinetic to buy digital OOH inventory in real-time and provide footfall attribution models for their clients.
This year, DOOH is forecasted to capture 40 per cent of OOH ad spend, representing a global spend of $16 billion.
