Happy holidays and 2021 wrap up

Header image for Happy holidays and 2021 wrap up

The last boxes on the Advent calendar can be opened, the preparations for the holidays are in full swing and most people are ready to turn on their out of office (or they’re getting ready for the Christmas rush). 2021 is coming to an end, so it’s a good time to reflect on the past year and look ahead to 2022.


The team has worked very hard the past year to further expand and improve our all-in-one video platform. This year, among other things, we made it possible to render personalised videos, introduced the feedback feature React and made the native SDK for iOS and Android available.

As it’s December, let's also take a quick look ahead. In 2022 you’ll hear more about Ad Schedules, the upgrade for Channels and the analytics dashboard renewal.

In 2021 our premium Interactive Video Studio worked overtime. Our interactive video experts created many interactive and personalised videos. For example, at the beginning of the year we had a scoop with the first ever interactive SIMID campaign. Check out the compilation below to see some of the projects the team delivered this year.

This year also marked the launch of the first videos for the Blue Billywig Academy, a series of interactive videos that teach viewers more about how to successfully use online video. We also expanded the support site with tutorials to visually guide customers to get even more out of the platform.

The biggest milestone this past year was the opening of our third office. Three years ago we opened our second office in Sweden and this year Kevin Smith moved to Singapore. He opened the first office outside Europe in order to offer our growing database of international clients the same expertise and service worldwide, in the right time zone.

Although we saw each other a little more often in the office in 2021, we also spent quite a few hours on Google Meet. So we made sure to plan plenty of fun activities for the team, both online and offline, with the ultimate highlight being: the entire Blue Billywig team attending the wedding of our Managing Director Jeroen and his wife Sigrid.
