Clients can access the company’s award-winning, real-time and historical location data targeting solutions, as well as its advanced reporting and analytics capabilities, including footfall, and heatmaps, in a single intuitive self-serve interface.

Blis Self-Serve has been designed to cater to all levels of client engagement and infrastructure, and follows deepening agency expertise towards the benefits of using location data for building high-value audience groups.

“OMG has been able to provide 100% transparency, accuracy and reach, to its array of Fortune 500 customers, including McDonald’s, over the course of the year and has now formalised the partnership with Blis,” said Sydney-based OMG’s ANZ managing director Peter Horgan.

He said direct access to the use of first-party location data has been a priority in the group’s ongoing strategy towards innovation and market-leading expertise.

“Location data now plays a key role in how the group builds its campaigns, and the opportunity to get onto a self-operated platform has helped us get to grips with the intricacies of the location marketing arena,” Horgan said.

“OMG’s trading desk teams are getting ahead of the curve on location marketing now, and Blis should be credited for its platform’s advanced, market-defining features.”
