Do you really know who’s in your car park? Buckinghamshire-based G24’s Automatic Number Plate Recognition generates a mass of daily data that can improve security, efficiency and revenue.
G24 – the parking solutions provider – believe that data is the key to unlocking the real value of car parks. They log over 7 million vehicle movements every month, and provide the data to customers in an easy-to-use format. Accessed via the web, and giving a continuous and clear picture of what’s happening in their parking facility, shopping centre managers now have an informed commentary on the impact – and opportunities – that their car park provides.
1st Objective wrote ads and advertorial for the Beaconsfield company which led with their unique StoreGuard product. StoreGuard alerts car park owners when VIPs and highly valued customers enter so they can roll-out the red carpet. Equally it lets customers know when undesirables or known criminals arrive so that security can be there to greet them!

If you’re in a sales-led company – and you’ve taken on the role of marketing – then we could be just what you’re looking for, a marketing on demand resource that you can just switch on or off.
For our bigger customers we supplement the work of their incumbent agencies, bringing specialist skills on a project basis.
At the other end of the scale we act as a completely outsourced marketing department, helping our customers create the brief, present at board level and develop campaigns for focused outcomes.
Your 1st Objective
We align marketing services in a way that supports your sales objectives. We are not a specialist agency and you’ll find that we deliver unbiased, agnostic advice.
We look at typical sales and how they are achieved. Then we suggest marketing services to make those sales easier, more frequent and more likely to succeed. Later we support your engagement with key accounts for repeat sales.
And beyond sales support, we look to build your brand’s value, improve engagement with customers and communicate internally to make your workplace even more productive.

Our new client PayFones and their C-mii handsets presented 1st Objective with a ‘nice to have’ challenge.
As front runners in the affordable NFC-enabled handset market, they have the product to match the pent-up demand. But with so much chatter in the market about the advent of Near Field Communications, how can they get cut-through and the attention their phones deserve?
‘When you talk to Chris Pay at PayFones about his C-mii range of NFC handsets it’s pretty hard not to get excited about the potential,’ says Nic Ricketts at 1st Objective.
‘He can rattle off a variety of scenarios where NFC on a mobile handset will change the way people work and buy stuff forever. Our task was to get that down to simple advertising concepts. The luxury we had was that the end-user benefits were obvious and easy to get across – whether we were talking about enterprise-based solutions or NFC in a retail environment.’
In the enterprise space, users of C-mii NFC phones are likely to include domiciliary care workers, cleaners, porters and security staff, who will have the ability to tag in and out of particular locations. This has all the obvious applications for the daily logging of time and attendance and re-tasking on the go.
And in the retail environment, there’ll be no more digging in pockets and purses for cash and cards. Shoppers buying small everyday items simply touch their C-mii mobile to an NFC reader to make instant, safe and convenient transactions.
‘What this means is that we can tell little stories in the ads,’ says Nic. ‘And this makes the ads more powerful. Instead of pointing our creative at the IT specifier or recommender we can create pull-through demand from users and top-down interest at board level.
