Youwe gave G4S the ability to generate significant levels of sales leads.

G4S is the leading global integrated security company specializing in the provision of security products, services, and solutions. From risk assessment to delivery, G4S works in partnership with governments, businesses, and other organizations to provide integrated solutions to security challenges.

For G4S, the problem was lead generation. Without capturing contact details from people downloading G4S reports, they were worried about missing out on potential leads. G4S challenged Youwe to create a campaign to promote GIS, an online monitoring system providing geopolitical intelligence on current and future threats to corporate security, travel, and business continuity.
