Havas Socialyse, the first digital agency in Cambodia, on July 14 launched yet another first for its partners and the business community in the Kingdom – Social Listening in the Khmer Language.
Part of its new strategic offering called actionable data-driven insights (ADDI), Social Listening leverages Havas' global group intelligence and tools to understand – for the first time ever – what is being said by Cambodians in Khmer across more than 100 million online sources.
This is set to be a gamechanger in further understanding customers and sharpening relevance in brand communications.
The Social Listening platform was formally introduced to the business community of Cambodia at the Raintree rooftop.
Highlights from the event included a Social Listening global case study presented by the Havas APAC head of Digital, Darrell Nelson, and an insightful presentation on best-in-class influencer campaigns from Kohlective, the first-ever influencer marketing firm in Cambodia and affiliate partner of Havas Socialyse.
The event was also an opportunity to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Havas Socialyse. Group digital director Benjamin Houghton and Havas Riverorchid Group chief operating officer Anthony Keck looked back on the many firsts notched up and looked forward to even more milestones with the innovative Social Listening platform.
