Captivate and MiQ’s latest partnership brings data-driven targeting to DOOH

DOOH Audience Planning Tool Combines Location and Consumer Data with Browsing Behaviour, Enhances Targeting and Measurement Capabilities


TORONTO, January 27, 2021 Captivate, North America’s leading location-based digital video network, has formed a strategic partnership with MiQ, a global programmatic media partner, to deepen Captivate’s audience targeting and measurement capabilities. This opportunity fills an addressability gap within the DOOH industry in Canada by combining mobile location and consumer data with website browsing behaviour via a customized self-serve planning tool. This will ultimately enable more effective campaigns for advertisers.


Captivate and MiQ’s forward-thinking partnership allows a DOOH media owner to have direct on-demand access to consumer profile attributes across an entire network. This, as well as streamlined mobile enhancement and attribution measurement, will continue to power strong alignment with an advertisers’ strategic objectives.


“As advertisers look to deepen their consumer relationships, we’re excited to partner with MiQ to provide a turnkey solution that reinforces brand messaging and drives action,” said Barb Huggett, General Manager at Captivate Canada. “By utilizing this scale of targeting, we can now identify valuable, hard-to-reach B2B & B2C audiences and take measurement to a new, deeper level.”


As the line between work and home continues to blur, upscale consumers are completing personal and professional tasks across multiple devices during moments of work, live and play. This alliance provides Captivate’s advertising partners with more pointed exposure — targeting campaigns based on consumer activity across offline and online touchpoints.


“This partnership bridges the power of geolocation data with online activity data to provide marketers an accurate picture of their DOOH audience, while helping eliminate wastage and inform strategies,” said Jason Furlano, SVP of Commercial, MiQ. “Today’s definition of OOH, ironically, doesn’t always mean outdoors. High traffic areas still exist, and this partnership helps to better segment these areas for relevant and meaningful messaging.”
