Manila, Philippines – In a bid to ascertain a data-driven approach in the Philippine out-of-home (OOH) industry, programmatic OOH company Moving Walls and the Out of Home Advertising Association of the Philippines (OHAAP) had recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU), entailing OHAAP to utilize Moving Walls’ platform to step up measurement, transparency, and accountability for OOH.
The agreement will enable OHAAP member companies owning billboard panels, LED screens, and other outdoor advertising platforms to have a valuable and easily accessible audience measurement, which makes planning static and digital sites easier, and provide the weight necessary to justify OOH ad spends.
Furthermore, members will be able to plan static and digital OOH (DOOH) campaigns more holistically while adopting a data-first approach to its programmatic campaigns with advanced capabilities such as dynamic ad-content serving, audience retargeting, use of various triggers such as weather and time-belting.
“Having a common currency makes the medium more responsible. Advertisers know exactly what they are spending for and this helps to generate trust. Location Intelligence strengthens the OOH media platform as an effective media channel, which aligns it to other measured media such as TV, Radio, Print, and Digital. This agreement ushers in the era of digital and uplift the profile of the OOH industry and deliver substantial value to clients of various revenue sizes,” according to Alex Montanez, chairman at OHAAP.
The development is also seen as a positive reinforcement of the goal of the Media Specialists Association of the Philippines (MSAP), establishing a common OOH currency using the ad-tech company’s data. Previously, Moving Walls had also teamed up with MSAP for OOH measurement solutions.
OHAAP President Ramil Gutierrez comments, “The OHAAP Board is delighted to partner with Moving Walls Philippines to provide OHAAP members with transparency, accountability, and measurability to its campaigns through the use of location intelligence. It’s about time our members level up the playing field and experience the full potential of planning and buying OOH media.”
By connecting to Moving Walls network of 35,000 global connected sites, member companies will be able to plan Outernet campaigns in an automated manner as the platform enables the collection of location intelligence data for both static and digital outdoor media sites.
“We are moving forward into digital transformation and we at Moving Walls commit to further support OHAAP and its members not just with data but also with advanced capabilities needed to future-proof itself,” said Norman Davadilla, CEO of Moving Walls Philippines. “Our next step in planning is to onboard OHAAP members, equip and enable them to understand and utilize the Moving Walls tech stack,” Gutierrez adds.
