The agency also looked to access tools that it believed was relevant and make them accessible to clients as per their needs. These included Eyeris, an OOH measurement tool that considered the visual effectiveness of each site by taking into consideration the traffic speed over various periods of time and the population density factor, to arrive at a standard of measurement, called ‘clout’ for each billboard.

In April, TSS partnered with Amp.Amsterdam, an agency with specialisation in sound design, identity and innovation to leverage the science of sound in their brand communication. The agency has offices in Amsterdam and New York City and a network of composers, producers, and creatives around the globe.
