The world’s largest Out-of-Home advertising company and global leader in digital, JCDecaux, today announced a partnership with Seedooh, an independent technology platform providing complete and standardised reporting in the Out-of-Home industry, to deliver advertisers with campaign reporting and greater transparency.

Under the agreement, Seedooh’s reporting and verification platform will be integrated into JCDecaux’s system to create an independent campaign delivery reporting function, that works seamlessly within the end-to-end campaign delivery processes.

It will allow advertisers to access real-time proof of their digital Out-of-Home campaign delivery and receive rich data to help evaluate campaign performance across JCDecaux’s complete digital portfolio. 

Seedooh has aligned with PwC to bring third-party verification of Out-of-Home data in its platform to create clear, validated and standardised reporting for advertisers, media agencies and Out-of-Home media owners.

Launched in July 2017, the Seedooh platform provides near real-time delivery data for Out-of-Home campaigns in both digital and traditional formats and is a first of its kind platform.

“The digital expansion in Out-of-Home has been rapid and significant and now sits at almost half the total industry’s media revenue, but measurement has not kept up. At JCDecaux, we expect to exponentially increase our digital assets to 2,500 by early 2020 and, as a company, we anticipate that more than 80% of our business will be digital,” JCDecaux Australia CEO, Steve O’Connor, said.

“JCDecaux fully supports the OMA’s decision to invest in the MOVE measurement system to accurately measure audiences for digital Out-of-Home. We know that digital offers considerable benefits for advertisers and the partnership with Seedooh allows advertisers to have complete confidence that their campaigns have appeared and offers the highest level of transparency.” 

Seedooh CEO, Tom Richter, said: “We are delighted that JCDecaux recognises the value in transparent, connected and standardised reporting. We welcome their commitment to the Seedooh platform and look forward to delivering this important solution to market. Seedooh is committed to helping develop a new industry standard in independent delivery reporting for Out-of-Home.

We are in conversations with leading Out-of-Home advertisers, agencies and vendors, to provide the Seedooh solution, locally and in international markets, where independence has value.”
