(Toronto, ON) Oct 2, 2018 - Contobox won big at last night’s International Mediapost OMMA Awards in New York.

The RBC Insurance campaign took home the top award in the Chatbot category for its first-to-market implementation of their chatbot technology. In partnership with Initiative, Contobox developed an in-ad insurance assistant chatbot leveraging expandable and non-expandable digital display. The chatbot was supported utilizing Contobox’s EasyTag technology which allows full programmatic delivery of ad creative regardless of a publisher’s expandable ad capability - this means no advertising dollars are wasted on sites that don’t have the capability to expand. Delivering real-time consumer insights to RBC Insurance’s team through the Contobox platform, helped RBC better manage the campaign internally. Creating a scalable advisor that helped deliver to consumers exactly what they’re looking for helped RBC better understand what consumers knew or didn’t know about insurance.

Contobox also won an award in the Programmatic Creative category with partner Saatchi for their work on the Toyota RAV4 campaign. The campaign’s feature-rich expandable display unit engaged consumers while creating real-time data on those consumers who are already in the market to purchase.The data gauged prospects’ interest in particular car models then programmatically retargeted them with optimized creative, moving them closer to purchase.  

“We are honoured to have been recognized amongst our industry peers at the International Media Post OMMA Awards for our outstanding work on the RBC Insurance and Toyota RAV4 campaigns in conjunction with Initiative and Saatchi,” said Petar Bozinovski, President, Crucial Interactive. “These wins underscore our talented team’s dedication to working collaboratively with our partners to continually keep raising the bar, engaging with audiences on their terms.”
