Captivate Network Forms Strategic Partnership with xAd to Provide Multi-Screen, Location-Based Marketing Solution

Captivate Network has formed a strategic partnership with xAd to help advertisers reach affluent and elusive professionals at multiple touch-points throughout the workday. This alliance provides advertisers with an additional platform to engage Captivate's valuable at-work audience at the point of consideration and conversion. Through complementary mobile display ads targeted at Captivate buildings, brand messaging is reinforced to professionals who have been exposed to Captivate's in-office elevator screens and lobby displays. Ad delivery is 100% location-verified, based on the longitude and latitude of Captivate's 1,800 office buildings in the US and Canada. xAd brings Captivate's clients the ability to not only amplify their advertising message through mobile devices but to provide viewers with a means to interact and respond. Soft-launched in August 2014, this innovative service has piqued the interest of media agencies and Captivate has already activated this mobile-targeting campaign extension for select clients. The partnership between Captivate and xAd brings advertising clients an integrated solution that fully engages an audience of high-value, hard-to-reach professionals.
