VeriFone Media To Lead Digital Gas Station Network In Partnership With Gilbarco

VeriFone Media To Lead Digital Gas Station Network In Partnership With Gilbarco

Gilbarco and VeriFone Partnership Expands Network Reach To More Than 95 Million On-the-Go Consumers

GREENSBORO, NC — Last January, Gilbarco Veeder-Root acquired Outcast Media creating one of the largest digital place-based (DPB) advertising networks at the pump. Gilbarco has announced today that they are partnering with VeriFone Systems, a global leader in secure electronic payment solutions, to further expand its gas station forecourt business. According to Gilbarco, the partnership will create the largest at-pump interactive digital place-based media network in the world reaching more than 95 million on-the-go consumers each month with over 30,000 place-based digital advertising screens.

Outcast Media, Gilbarco’s forecourt media business, and Applause TV, Gilbarco’s gas station TV network, will be merged with VeriFone’s digital media and VeriFone Digital Network (VNET) businesses. The VeriFone Digital Network now spans more than 140 media markets across the U.S. and the U.K., including all of the top 50 U.S. media markets, providing one-to-one, interactive media engagement across more than 50,000 screens in taxis, gas pumps, and convenience stores around the world with the merger of Outcast Media.

VeriFone Media announced last January the launch of a digital taxi top advertising platform in New York City. The network currently includes 100 taxis equipt with high-definition, full-motion video displays. The taxi top network is also capable of running geo-targeted and dayparted advertising campaigns and provides near-real-time updates for sporting events and includes social media integration.

Merger and acquisition activity within the DPB advertising space has accelerated this year. Last June, Rockbridge Growth Equity acquired Gas Station TV, a direct competitor to  Outcast Media. And then in April came news that Captivate Network would acquire the Office Media Network, creating one of North America’s largest in-office professional media networks. Then in May, National CineMedia announced that it will acquired Screenvision, creating the largest cinema advertising network in the US.

Gilbarco Veeder-Root and VeriFone’s partnership will see the two companies collaborate on future fuel dispenser payment platforms to be developed and supplied by VeriFone. The payment solutions will be designed to meet convenience and fuel retailers’ functionality and regulatory needs as well as offer at-pump media advertising and entertainment.

Gilbarco will provide the software and integration solutions, as well as sales and service provider for forecourt payment systems developed under the partnership. The companies will work together to transition the payment electronics in Gilbarco’s global dispenser product lines to VeriFone technology. However, both companies will continue to develop and market their point-of-sale systems for the petroleum and convenience market independently.

“VeriFone’s partnership with Gilbarco, the world’s leading dispenser technology provider, is perfectly aligned with our terminal solutions and commerce enablement strategies and will allow us to offer the best payment and forecourt media solutions on the market to our clients around the globe,” said Paul Galant, CEO of VeriFone. “Our collective expertise and access to consumer insights provide significant business value to our clients, helping them increase sales at the pump and in-store.”

“Gilbarco’s leadership in the convenience and petroleum vertical and VeriFone’s expertise in secure payments and media engagement make this an ideal relationship,” said Martin Gafinowitz, President of Gilbarco Veeder-Root. “Gilbarco has the largest installed base of outdoor payment systems in our industry, and combining our deep knowledge of systems and software integration with VeriFone’s broad payment expertise will greatly benefit our customers.”

Interactive Network Enables Advertisers to Engage With On-the Go Consumers at Scale Using Mobile and OOH Media

NEW YORK, NY — A follow up on Clear Channel Outdoor’s Connect platform.

More than 60 advertisers in the United Kingdom including McDonalds, Google, Aussie Bum, Levi’s and Paramount (Maleficent ad campaign pictured here) have run over 100 mobile-enabled campaigns using Connect. Clear Channel Outdoor has partnered with Blue Bite, a leading mobile-marketing solutions provider, to provide the back-end technology, operations, and sales support for Connect advertisers in the U.S. and Canada.

“Our North American rollout of Connect is the largest deployment of integrated mobile and out-of-home technology ever,” said Suzanne Grimes, President & Chief Operating Officer, Clear Channel Outdoor – North America. “The intersection of mobile and out-of-home is an enormous opportunity for marketers, and Clear Channel Outdoor is excited to continue to lead the way with Connect. Combining the visual impact of out of home with the interactive and data-rich capabilities of mobile will help our clients create more engaging and measurable campaigns to build their brands and achieve their sales goals.”

Clear Channel Airports Launches Interactive Charging Station Network

Clear Channel Airports Launches Interactive Charging Station Network

New Digital Out-of-Home Advertising Network Delivers Convenience To Connected Travelers

NEW YORK, NYClear Channel Airports has launched a nationwide digital out-of-home (DOOH) network of interactive charging stations at three of the country’s busiest airports. The new network was developed with Monster Media, an interactive provider of DOOH advertising solutions.

The kiosks allow travelers to charge their smartphones, tablets and laptops, keeping vital lines of communication open to family, friends and business colleagues. The each kiosk features built-in cameras that allow travelers to snap a quick selfie to share with their families, friends and colleagues via social sites. The kiosks are ADA compliant and use embedded touch-enabled LED screens.

Ad campaigns can reach across channels by prompting travelers to connect with brands via social media and then email when prompted by on-screen advertising content. The kiosks’ software captures usage metrics to provide insights on campaign effectiveness to brands.

Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network will be used to deliver digital advertising to the kiosk network, including messages from Verizon. Clear Channel Airports’ management of advertising programs at ATL, ORD and DFW offer ideal placement for Monster Media’s charging stations.

The Interactive Charging Station network includes kiosks in three select airports: Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL), Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).

“This network gives advertisers a powerful new option to deepen their audience exposure and consumer engagement with extended dwell time, and at the traveler’s leisure,” said Jon Sayer, president, Clear Channel Airports. “This work with Monster Media underscores our commitment to reinventing air travel experience for both maximum convenience and advertiser benefit while engaging with the connected consumer in meaningful ways.”

“The interactive charging stations present advertisers with a way to slow down the busy traveler, present them with a free service, and in exchange, capture their time and attention to view messages from advertisers,” said Chris Beauchamp, CEO, Monster Media.

Monster Media has also renewed its interactive digital signage wall agreement with Clear Channel Airports.

Gas Station TV Acquired by Rockbridge Growth Equity

Gas Station TV’s Place-based Video Advertising Network Reaches More Than 50 Million Viewers Per Month Across 42 States

Gas Station TV’s Digital Place-based Advertising Network Reaches More Than 50 Million Viewers Per Month Across 42 States

DETROIT, MI — Consolidation in the digital place-based (DPb) advertising space has accelerated over the last several months. Last January, Outcast Media, one of the largest digital-place-based advertising networks at gas pumps was snapped up by Gilbarco Veeder-Root combining Outcast Media’s network with Gilbarco’s c-store-based Applause TV. Then in April came news that Captivate Network would acquire the Office Media Network, creating one of North America’s largest in-office professional media networks. Today comes news that Rockbridge Growth Equity, LLC, a Detroit-based private equity firm, has signed a purchase agreement to acquire Gas Station TV (GSTV), one of the fastest-growing place-based advertising networks at gas pumps—and a direct competitor to Outcast Media.

Founded in 2006 and located in Birmingham, Michigan, GSTV is one of the largest place-based video advertising networks in the United States reaching more than 50 million viewers at gas pumps each month. GSTV’s viewership has continued to grow and solidify video advertising at the pump as an exemplary platform for brands to reach on-the-go consumers. GSTV’s place-based screens engage and influence  consumers with exclusive content from ESPN, CNN’s Headline News and Buzz Today, Bloomberg TV, and AccuWeather at fuel retailers across the country.

Rockbridge Growth Equity is leading the transaction. Other investors include Falcon Investments and Michigan Growth Capital Partners, co-managed by Grosvenor Capital Management and Beringea. The deal is expected to close in the coming weeks pending regulatory approval. Barclays PLC served as the exclusive financial advisor to GSTV. RBS Citizens arranged the senior debt facilities in partnership with First Merit and Flagstar Bank.

Rockbridge was founded in 2007 by partners Brian Hermelin, Kevin Prokop and Dan Gilbert, who is also founder and chairman of Rock Ventures LLC and Quicken Loans Inc. The firm invests in companies that specialize in financial and technology services, as well as digital media and consumer-direct marketing.

“Investing in an industry-leading and growing company like GSTV is a natural fit for Rockbridge,” said Prokop, who also serves as managing director. “GSTV’s management team have proven video at the pump to be a successful media growth category, and GSTV has emerged as the clear leader in the space.”

GSTV has grown its gas station network from a five-station pilot in Dallas to more than 2,600 stations in 42 states. The company has increased its revenues 35 percent annually since 2009. In addition, GSTV has tripled its advertiser base and counts numerous Fortune 500 companies in the automotive, retail, consumer packaged goods, and personal finance industries among its clients.  The partnership will leverage the Rock Ventures Family of Companies’ expertise in technology, marketing services and digital media to further accelerate growth.

Gas Station TV Acquired By Rockbridge Growth Equity

“Partnering with Rockbridge empowers us to build upon our leadership position in the industry and bring a GSTV screen to every community in the country,” said David Leider, GSTV CEO. “Together with Rockbridge we’ll continue to drive strong return on investment for our advertisers and gas station retailers, while providing an exceptional content experience for our viewers.” David Leider leads GSTV along with the management team of Stephen Kuehn, CFO and COO, and Mo Alcaptan, Executive Vice President.

“We were happy to help support Rockbridge Growth Equity in their acquisition of Gas Station TV. The transaction represents an important milestone for another rapidly growing Michigan firm,” said Beringea senior managing director and co-founder Charles Rothstein. “With its expanding network of locations and advertisers, GSTV presents an exciting investment opportunity.”

Screen Shifting Increases, But Behavior Varies With Content and Device Type

Multiple Device Usage On the Rise, But Behavior Varies With Content and Device Type

Faster Network Access Combined With Multiple Device Ownership Fueling Cross-Screen Behavior, Mobile Only Usage Accelerates

BALTIMORE, MD — Faster network access across the globe along with access to multiple devices is accelerating screen shifting behavior. A new study reports that more than 70 percent of people now access the Internet using both mobile and desktop computers, up from 63 percent a year ago, due to consumers’ increased comfort moving across a number of devices to stay connected and consume content, according to a report by Millennial Media and comScore.

Millennial Media’s study, Cross-Screen Consumer Behavior Decoded, explores how demographics, content, and time of day influence cross-screen consumer behavior. The study analyzed cross-screen behaviors and content consumption among four key demographic groups: 18- to 24-year-olds, men aged 25-49, women aged 25-49, and people over the age of 50. Among the study’s findings include:

  • Mobile-only users ages 18-24 grew six percentage points in the last year, while their time spent on smartphones grew 20 percent.
  • The number of mobile users aged 50+ grew 17 percent, while the number of 50+ desktop-only users decreased by the same amount.
  • Mobile-only users have grown at nine times this rate, while desktop-only users have decreased 45 percent during the same period. Internet use continues to expand – up four percent since April 2013 to 201 million users.

“The challenge for marketers is to understand how to communicate effectively with today’s cross-platform customers and uncover the right opportunities to reach them,” said Mollie Spilman, EVP, Global Sales and Operations at Millennial Media. “Our cross-screen report is designed to educate the industry on user behavior and how to best reach audiences as they move across screens throughout the day. To be successful marketers, we must create consistent experiences, independent of the media we use in our daily lives.”

Buyers See Smartphones, Tablets, and PCs as a Single Continuum of Connected Devices Separated Primarily By Screen SizeThe study also reveals that cross-screen behavior varies dramatically by the type of content consumed:

  • More than 60 percent of online time spent with weather content occurs on a smartphone. Other top smartphone content usage includes Streaming Radio (79%), Games (79%, and Social Media (61%).
  • Eighty percent of time spent with B2B content is still accessed on a desktop. Other top desktop content types include Business/Finance (62%) and Sports (56%).

Free Trend Report: Why Location Is the New Currency of Marketing

Free Trend Report: Why Location Is the New Currency of MarketingTraditional methods of advertising have become less effective as consumers spend less time in places where marketers have traditionally had an advantage in reaching them. Consumer attention has fragmented across multiple channels as media options and device platforms increasingly diversify. Finding effective ways to deliver branded messages in today’s complex media environment is one of the biggest challenges facing advertisers.

Active consumers spend money, and while they are going about their daily routine, they are also actively looking for information. According to Google, more than 50% of all mobile searches have local intent, and 17% of search happens while consumers are on the go.

Digital place-based (DPb) media is unique because it intercepts on-the-go consumers with relevant, highly targeted messages as they move through the day. Location-based mobile and digital place-based media are part of a larger omnichannel ecosystem that effectively amplifies brand messages to create a deeper level of engagement with active consumers.

Why Location Is the New Currency of Marketing is aimed at CMOs, media buyers and strategists and provides insight into why marketers are increasingly shifting their advertising dollars to these rapidly emerging media platforms.

Real-time Transit information Increases Use of Public Transportation Alternatives

Real-time Transit information Increases Use of Public Transportation Alternatives

TransitScreen and Engrain Helps Commuters See Nearby Transit Options, Including Bus, Train and Subway Information

DENVER, CO — One of the most important aspects to slowing the effects of climate change is encouraging people to change their day-to-day behavior to lower their overall carbon footprint. However, changing behavior takes time and often requires incentives to compel people to change established routines and use patterns.

One of the most effective behavioral incentives is figuring out better ways to provide convenience and easy of use. And that’s exactly why transit agencies and local municipalities around the globe have introduced smartphone apps in recent years to encourage residents and visitors to use mass transit systems. Transit apps can help daily commuters and tourists determine the best routes to take and provide up-to-the minute transit line status and advisories.

Because of digitization, people now have more than one channel in which to retrieve information. In addition to mobile applications, street-level kiosks now provide interactive digital signage displays with local information and wayfinding assistance.

A new partnership between TransitScreen, a San Francisco-based developer of real-time transit information displays and Engrain, a developer of touchscreen-based property tours and resident interaction systems, has announced the release of a new service called TouchTour Transit, to provide up-to-the-minute information on local public transportation. The system provides a live feed that will show details on all nearby transit options, including bus, train and subway lines as well as bikeshare and carshare availability.

“Many people are reluctant to use public transportation simply because they don’t have easy access to comprehensive information on the choices available,” said Melissa Pasquale, vice president of product development at Engrain. “TouchTour Transit will remove that hurdle in communities that have our panels. We’re excited to be working with the TransitScreen team.”

Engrain’s TouchTour panels, along with standard digital signage screens, are being installed in apartment and condominium communities in a growing number of U.S. cities.

“Our immediate goal with TransitScreen data is to help a person get from point A to point B,” said Ryan Croft, vice president of business development at TransitScreen. “But the broader vision is about educating people, encouraging behavior change and getting more cars off the streets. Our partnership with Engrain, and the ability to inform residents in multifamily communities as they begin their travels, is perfectly aligned with that vision.”

“We are always looking for ways to maximise brand impact and this activity is testament to that. The partnership with Heathrow Airport and JCDecaux Airport was a one-off opportunity to push the boundaries like no other brand has been allowed to do before,” said Russell Taylor, Vice President, Corporate Marketing, at Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland.

“The Galaxy S5 is the biggest mobile phone launch of the year and we wanted to go truly above and beyond when it came to building awareness. We have created an extraordinary partnership with London Heathrow. As a result, what we’ve created here for Samsung is something no brand has ever managed before. For two weeks every passenger traveling through the world’s busiest international terminal will see the Galaxy S5 everywhere they look,” said Fiona FitzGibbon, Head of Out of Home at Cheil UK.
