Seedooh is actively targeting Europe, the US and Asia for its next growth phase after consolidating its business in Australia.

To focus on these international growth priorities, the company has created two new roles. Seedooh’s director of confidence, Kenta Shimizu, has been appointed SVP North America, while Joe Copley becomes MD Europe and APAC.

Seedooh uses global best practice verification controls, and no such rigorous independent third-party assurance currently exists in any other market.

Seedooh’s Out of Home platform provides fast-time, independently verified, complete delivery reporting for any Digital Out of Home campaign using the top seven media suppliers in Australia, with ongoing growth in New Zealand.

“We have stepped up our marketing and business development activities in Europe and the US particularly, as a result of heightened interest in our solution,” Seedooh founder and CEO Tom Richter says.

“Australia is leading the way in the technology and control systems necessary to independently verify advertising campaigns, especially in the Out of Home market, which traditionally has not always been easy to measure.”

The company recently extended its Australian offering beyond the Out of Home category into cinema, with Val Morgan announcing last month it would be providing transparent verification and reporting of cinema advertising campaign delivery via the Seedooh platform.

Val Morgan opted for the Australian owned and developed verification platform after a thorough global review of available technology, in order to help deliver more transparency.

The platform has reported on 20,000 campaigns since launch, and is now processing 1.4bn data points a month – consumed by almost 2,000 registered users in Australia. The Seedooh platform will also complete its SOC2 level assurance report via PwC early in 2020.

“Since launching our Independent Verification Platform (IVP) almost three years ago, we have focused on delivery reporting that provides efficiency and confidence for all participants, while enabling improved automation through standardisation and connectivity,” Richter says.

“The best practice assurance controls within our IVP are well designed and can be easily adapted for other industry sub-verticals, and we are looking forward to building our business as interest continues to grow in connected, independently verified data at scale.”
