Delivery Agent Powers the First Shoppable TV Commercial Bringing T-Commerce to Life at CES 2014
LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jan 6, 2014) - (CES) - Delivery Agent, Inc., the market leader in turning TV viewers into customers for more than 350 of the world's leading global brands, today announced a partnership with H&M, Hennes & Mauritz AB that will change the course of the television advertising industry. H&M will utilize Delivery Agent's t-commerce platform to shop-enable their 30-second Super Bowl XLVIII ad featuring David Beckham.
Consumers tuned into Super Bowl XLVIII, expected to be one of the most watched televised events in the U.S., will have the opportunity to use their remote control to engage with the advertising content and opt-in to purchase products as they view the new Spring collection of David Beckham Bodywear. Delivery Agent will showcase how consumers will experience this integrated t-commerce shopping experience with H&M at CES.
H&M is the first retailer to launch a fully enabled t-commerce advertising campaign. The campaign also includes the launch of an H&M t-commerce boutique accessible to consumers 24/7 by visiting Delivery Agent's ShopTV on select Samsung Smart TVs. Additionally, consumers can access the boutique via ShopTV on the web, and on mobile devices and tablets.
"This is a game-changer for the advertising industry," said Mike Fitzsimmons, Delivery Agent CEO. "With the upcoming launch of the t-commerce-enabled H&M Super Bowl XLVIII ad, we are collectively redefining the power and effectiveness of television advertising. Years ago, the world talked about the potential associated with buying Jennifer Aniston's sweater. H&M, in an industry first, will now realize that potential by making their Super Bowl XLVIII ad actionable and directly measurable."
