“Versus Systems made solid progress in the first quarter towards meeting its strategic objectives. Our goals remain to increase the number of partners that we are working with, to drive up the average contract value, to add more advertising relationships, and to move into new verticals in addition to the in-venue sports success that represents the lion’s share of our work today. The growing number of sports partners and advertisers is something we’re very proud of, and we’re looking to build upon that success in Q2 and beyond, expanding the adoption of our powerful XEO platform to new partners and new verticals,” said Matthew Pierce, CEO of Versus Systems.
“Entering into strategic partnerships with experiential marketing agencies Red Moon Marketing and ENT Marketing enables us to expand the use of XEO in innovative, engaging ways. Our first activation with a quick-service restaurant, in collaboration with ENT, was a huge success, and we anticipate bringing XEO to the consumer-packaged goods, retailers, and spirits verticals in the next year through our partnership with Red Moon. We also continue to support activations for our strong base of sports partners, most recently working with teams in the MLB, NHL, and Japanese Baseball. Increased audience engagement, powered by our leading XEO platform, benefits brands, creators, and consumers. Versus is a world leader in audience engagement, and we are excited to continue to bring the Versus experience to audiences and fans across the world, as they play to win both digital and real-world prizes alongside their favorite content.”
