There’s a lot of it out there. Some of it well guarded. Some of it loosely protected. All of it always in jeopardy of a hacker’s whim. Data represents a “giant step for…”-moment, and despite the potential misuse of data, the positive impact that data has on the industry and global community is immeasurable. The digital community in specific needs to ensure that from the user to the platforms everyone is actively engaged in the proper usage of data. We are often asked by our clients, “how can we ensure you are compliant?” And, as we share, “we can only be as compliant as the industry offers standards.”

Which, doesn’t always satisfy us, or our clients. Compliance is tricky. It assumes that the rules are known and understood, locked in stone, and published. It implies there is a regulatory body or entity policing the marketplace.

That’s not to say we don’t work our tails off to ensure we are as compliant as humanly possible. It’s just to say that we could all wake up tomorrow morning, and “compliance” may look completely different. Which is why we often take matters into our own hands.

Like we did with GDPR. We happen to think GDPR is a good thing: it aims to protect personal data, and to ensure data isn’t sold or dropped into the wrong hands. Since Digital Remedy doesn’t own any data ourselves, or bidders for that matter, GDPR is a little less tricky for us. We are, however, committed to upholding our end of the bargain from across the pond. That’s why we’ve been focused on aligning with vendors and partners that are GDPR compliant when transacting in the EU and England, which includes seeking attestation from our vendors and identifying a GDPR compliant solution set to executive campaigns safely, securely and effectively. We commit to have an EU/England solution in place no later than May, 2018.

So like all compliancy matters, we will continue our work in remaining ahead of the curve. Which in some cases means right where we are supposed to be. Compliant.

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.
