For years, agencies have had difficulty tracking down their creative directors for meetings, reviews and critical approvals. To address this issue, Toronto agency Zulu Alpha Kilo is turning to GPS tracking technology to keep an eye on their whereabouts at all times.
The new app, called ‘Find My CD’ gives agency staff their creative directors’ exact coordinates at any given time.
Between client presentations, casting sessions and internal creative reviews, Creative Directors are hard to pin down (…) Now they’re just a pin on a map
President, Zulu Alpha Kilo.
The app uses a proprietary chip technology inserted just beneath the creative director’s skin to track their whereabouts.
We think this app has the potential to revolutionize the way agencies work
