About BoardActive (

BoardActive is a sign-operating and marketing platform that connects advertisers to the consumers. The company’s software suites links signage to smart devices, forming an immediate consumer call to action and enabling brands to create more engaging ad campaigns that empower the advertiser with detailed analytics and much more. The BoardActive suite is made for small, medium, and the largest-sized businesses to custom tailor a powerful web presence that fits within their budget and is tied to their visual advertisements.

BoardActive was established in 2016, but the concept started four years earlier when founder and CEO Doug Pittman was taking his son to Samford University in Birmingham, AL. Doug saw a captivating billboard on the long drive and couldn’t remember the message after he had passed it. He debated on backtracking to see it again but the next exit was miles away. Instantly, he saw the need to connect the message on ad media to consumers that are intently focused on their smartphones. By linking ad media with the digital realm through BoardActive, out-of-home media companies and advertisers extend the value of static and dynamic media for everyone.
