Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Xerox isn't just the document company anymore. They now provide business process outsourcing to scores of great companies who don't exactly specialize in back office chores like document management, invoice processing, I.T., and direct mail. We launched the Ready for Real Business campaign to show what would happen if these great companies had to do back office chores themselves, instead of trusting them to Xerox

Creative Execution
We decided to find our business target where they like to spend most of their time - the airport. So we installed twelve motion sensor, touch screen interactive displays in airpots. Business travelers could then kill time by helping Bullseye the Target dog deliver direct mail, or looking for a the 11 million unprocessed invoices hidden in Marriott hotel rooms. Both are chores Xerox takes care of for these companies, so they don't have to do it themselves.

Results and Effectiveness
The twelve digital boards marked the first time a combination of touch screen and motion senor technology was used in airports. They received 34,000 direct consumer engagements in the first month alone, and made the airport a far less boring place for business travelers to be straded.
