Scaling OOH Advertising with Mobile Location Data - Customer Success Story

Experts forecast that Out-of-home (OOH) advertising will be a $33 billion industry by 2021. Despite the increasing popularity of digital advertising, OOH ads remain the most effective method of context-based advertising that improves brand visibility, drives customers to your business' location, and effectively delivers relevant messages in public interest.

Once considered overtaken by internet-based advertising and social media, OOH advertising has made a comeback in the past few years. This comeback has been made possible by the analysis of location data - collected from personal devices that are literally everywhere! Mobile location data provides actionable insight into where people are, and OOH media providers can harness this data to deliver relevant messages to their customers at the right time.

One of our customers, Moving Walls, takes OOH media automation and targeting to the next level. Their location intelligence platform Moving Audiences helps advertisers with advanced data capabilities that address OOH's unique characteristics and various formats. Moving Walls enables brands to reach their audience more efficiently, and Quadrant helps them acquire new datasets to expand to new regions. Moving Walls has partnered with Quadrant for up to date location data that powers Moving Walls' location intelligence platform. Which in turn caters to every digital, static, indoor, or outdoor media type across the world.

GDPR Consent Conditions: Best Practices for Establishing Compliance

Data monetisation has grown manifolds in the past decade. It has helped businesses flourish and allowed consumers to enjoy tailored experiences. However, the unregulated use of data and the infringement on individuals’ privacy rights triggered a backlash, and regulators are now introducing strict consent requirements. In this article, we take a look at the best practices that can help you stay compliant.

The most important of these new laws is the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as many other jurisdictions use it as a blueprint. GDPR empowers users to govern how businesses can use their data, and it significantly raised the bar for data privacy laws worldwide. Penalties are harsh and enforcement is firm, so businesses are now setting up dedicated mechanisms to establish compliance.
