“My attraction to Project X and its culture can be summed up in a few words – ethics, empathy, purpose, and precision” says Robinson. He adds, “After 36 years in the OOH industry, I understand that creating lasting and material value for brands requires an inspired team, provocative work, and the best technology. Project X clearly lives up to each of these, but maybe more importantly, their core mindset of always delivering the highest level of service, strategy, and value with every campaign makes me proud to add my name and reputation to the Project X team.”
In January, PJX announced the launch of their Client Portal, an industry-first platform that provides its clients unprecedented access and insights into media planning data and campaign impact. Pulse Reports, a function within Client Portal, provides clients with real-time analysis on all their current and historical campaign data in one place, broken down in various interactive graphs by format, market, vendor, time, and multiple other categories.
