Introducing Visual Commerce

Solutions for sectors including Publishing, Telco, Brand and Over-the-Top Media

Using any mobile device, all sources of branded visual imagery, however and whenever created, can be made digitally interactive and shoppable without any changes to creative.

A strategic partnership with innovative media agency Brandactif offers exciting new opportunities for media and brand owners. Without requiring an App download, Brandactif’s cutting-edge technology enables any mobile device to scan visual imagery and link directly to additional digital content. Imagine adding extra information, offers and promotions to product packaging; magazine and newspaper images; even broadcast media and video.

No App Required

Trend statistics show that App downloads are declining yoy. Space on mobile phones is precious and consumers are more reluctant to download multiple apps. The Brandactif solution doesn’t require an App.

Digitize pre-existing media

Apply extra digital content to packaging that’s already on shop shelves; or add a shoppable link to a frame of music video already in circulation.

Monetize Media

Media production is expensive to produce and distribute. Adding a shoppable dimension yields additional revenue and boosts consumer engagement.


Used by Cosmopolitan, Woman & Home, Heat and Grazia magazines to add shoppable links to product images on the page via the reader’s phone.

Broadcast Media & Video

Each frame of a film, TV advert or video is recognised via a mobile phone and linked to additional product details or click to buy.

Brand Packaging

Pre-printed packaging is recognised via a mobile scan and used to relay offers, product information and nutrition advice. Differentiate the same product sold in different stores.
