Australia’s fastest growing retail out-of-home business*, Shopper Media Group, celebrates one year of partnering with out-of-home ad tech company, Ayuda Media Systems (Ayuda) as it continues to deliver market-leading digital media solutions across its shopping communities.
Shopper Media Group has transitioned 100% of their Smartlite® digital advertising panels onto the Ayuda integrated software platform to take advantage of the most technologically advanced, flexible software in the industry to manage sales, scheduling, data-driven digital ad serving and customer-facing enablement tools.
Shopper Media Group’s partnership with Ayuda demonstrates its focus on delivering unrivalled technology in the OOH space and customisable campaigns to clients. Shopper Media Group have utilised the Ayuda software to streamline content scheduling, allow mass personalisation capabilities and increased creative campaign flexibility to align even better with the needs of each individual advertiser.
Ben Walker, Shopper Media Group CEO says, “Innovative technology is a powerful driver in achieving growth and providing a customisable DOOH experience. Implementing Ayuda has allowed us to offer greater digital inventory flexibility, and thus greater personalisation options. We can run multiple different advertising scenarios during each day and to different locations/audiences across our local shopping communities simultaneously.
“Customers to our shopping centres can enjoy a richer, more engaging experience as the messaging they are served up by Ayuda is more relevant to them based on who they are and where they live; powered by our understanding of our local shopping communities.”

Stability and flexibility are also especially important in the digital out-of home space, and Ayuda’s integrated platform fulfils this core business need.”
Ayuda’s APAC Managing Director, Remi Roques says, “Ayuda is excited to be providing Shopper Media Group with a robust content management system and comprehensive on-site support.
