About Us

Digital Remedy is proof that success can be found with the right combination of people and technology. As a company we’ve never settled for less than the best and our constant position as the premier provider of digital media execution is a testament to that. 

 

20 Years

In an effort to move away from a cost-plus model and into a solutions-first offering, Digital Remedy was created by parent company, CPXi. Starting in 2017, Digital Remedy continues the 20 year mission of performance based innovation to maximize business potential, aligning products and services under one organization.

Progress Never Stops

In its history, CPXi maintained distinct divisions that evolved in parallel, creating capabilities that met the challenges faced by marketers, publishers and influencers. Some examples include bRealTime—a unit divested in 2016—provided programmatic solutions for both supply- and demand-side partners; Hatched.at,  AdReady, and Consumed Media.

Solutions For All

Today, Digital Remedy enables publishers, advertisers, and agencies to access the full potential of their digital assets. With unprecedented access, superior customer service, flawless execution, and our proprietary, strategic solutions working together, Digital Remedy aims to be the media execution partner of choice.

Simple Math

One of the underlying tenets of Digital Remedy is the belief that both marketers and content creators are our clients. We understand that the digital landscape is only connected and efficient if all parties can win together. We also understand that bringing value to both sides of the equation is a key to not only the success of our clients, but to the entire ecosystem. Add to that a deep respect for consumers’ rights, and a focus on their overall online experience…and we believe we have the right formula.

Harmony

In the spirit of Pythagoras, Digital Remedy seeks to begin and end every day with positivity. This is one of the reasons behind our symbol, the Lyre, and is the core value that we base our philanthropic activities on. Harmony – the Digital Remedy social responsibility program – aligns our business expertise with our ongoing desire to care for our communities, synchronize with nature, and promote equality within the digital ecosystem.

Buying Power and Quality

Let’s be honest. Your ad ops are limited by your access to only a handful of channels and DSPs. You want more reach and better prices, but don’t want to sacrifice quality in order to achieve those goals. Digital Remedy has access to a vast multitude of channels based on relationships we’ve cultivated over nearly 20 years in business. That means we get the best prices, have personal relationships, and don’t get sent to voicemail when we call.

It also means that we can execute omni-channel ad ops for better prices than an internal team, while ensuring the quality is up to industry standards. On top of access to all sorts of specific audiences we’re able to to leverage first- and third-party data across all your campaigns and pivot across platforms based on results. Any campaign, any budget, any platform, any audience. Digital Remedy backed by AdReady is restriction free ad ops….and what could be better than that?

Resources, Time, and Overhead

When was the last time you enjoyed balancing budgets, reading resumes, dealing with aggressive sales teams, or wasting years of time for small gains in performance. By partnering with Digital Remedy you get the full support of $30m in OPEX including marketing teams, sales teams, and a dedicated 24/7 ad operations team. No hiring new employees for media optimization, business development, or account management. No months of training and on-boarding. No long meetings crafting sales materials. Just your team focused on making deals, and our teams and tech focused on supporting and executing those deals in a tech-enabled, digital ecosystem designed to get the most out of any KPI.

Reporting and Support

How nice would it be to have all of your data and insights in one location. We don’t mean an excel sheet sent out once a week with complicated charts, or an XML file with pages and pages and pages of tables (what is this, 2003?). We mean a fully customizable dashboard reporting in real time, or as real time as possible. You get to decide the how, what, and when of the reporting you’re seeing. And that’s ALL of the how, what, and when’s. If you want to see breakouts of all of the individual campaigns in your system, done. If you want broad scope comparisons of all of the campaigns in the last year, done. If you want to see CTR’s for specific audiences and compare them to CPM for your best performing advertiser but limit the scope to campaigns greater than 30k, done. All of this is at your fingertips with the AdReady Dashboard, all in one place.
