Extreme Reach, the leading cloud technology platform for TV & Video ad workflow and Talent & Rights management, and Mediaocean, the leading global media software provider, announced today an exclusive partnership that connects media planning and buying with the serving of creative assets to all intended destinations.
Agencies have historically struggled with disjointed, manual processes between TV media teams who are responsible for deciding which advertisements to run on which stations and the creative and trafficking teams who create ads and work with networks to ensure ads meet technical specifications of agencies and broadcasters.
Extreme Reach’s enterprise platform will integrate with Mediaocean Spectra platform for TV planners and buyers, automating these formerly labor-intensive manual processes and closing the key informational and operational gaps between media and trafficking teams.
“Our partnership with Mediaocean marks an exciting step in our ongoing mission to streamline overly complex, manual processes that cause major headaches for brands and their agencies,” said John Roland, CEO of Extreme Reach. “In a win-win for all parties, errors are reduced, obstacles are removed, and team members are freed from many manual tasks that distance them from more strategic work.”
“Partnering with Extreme Reach will enable agencies to execute advertising campaigns with greater effectiveness. This is foundational for targeted, optimized TV advertising,” said Bill Wise, CEO of Mediaocean.
With the vast majority of agencies, advertisers, broadcasters and publishers, including the Ad Age 100, currently working with both Extreme Reach and Mediaocean, this partnership will have a positive impact across the advertising industry. The integration of Extreme Reach into Mediaocean’s Spectra is scheduled to be completed early in 2017.
