About us

We founded Itsavirus in 2008, in the heat of the credit crunch. It was an exiting time for us to start. Companies were looking for new solutions and partnerships. We gave those companies a competitive advantage and enabled them to scale up their business. In the past decade, we have build a company that is 100% dedicated to developing the best digital platforms. 

 

Meanwhile we have successfully completed over 300 projects. At this moment we focus on working with large international companies and with ambitious e-commerce heroes. 

 

Innovation makes our hearts tick. This is why we also invent new tools and platforms ourselves. Sometimes these innovations evolve into entirely new business applications. This is why we are always ahead of the curve.

Awards

Winning feels good! We are proud to say that in 2015 we won the two most prestigious Dutch media awards. Both awards are for building the worlds first digital exchange for digital out of home; we translated the online advertisement trading principles to the Out of Home world. With this exchange we can do all sorts of cool things like a homepage takeover of a subway station when a train arrives or display your ad next to the highway at the same moment your ad is on the radio!
